Hello again wild things,
It’s been a while, but I greet you as an old friend – where months may pass with no communication and yet when you do finally meet again, it is as if nothing has changed.
Waterloo summers are really something different and if you’ve never experienced one, you’re missing out. They are a less frantic, casual affair. Where the lines at bars are short, patio beers are plenty, and visits from friends mean something a little more. It doesn’t hurt that the weather is mostly relaxing, either. For a lot of those reasons it has been really enjoyable doing AIRWAVES in the summer. The show takes on a free-spirited nature.
This past Wednesday I talked of what makes a good youtube channel (frequent updates, extra information, particular genre/s) and it featured Daughter as the artist of the day. With a new album this year and a show coming up in September (the 29th at the Phoenix), it seemed fitting to talk of this indie-folk band based out of London, England. As well, on the AIRWAVE CINEMA I took songs from One Tree Hill and Californication.
Notable Show Dates:
Jimmy Eat World – August 2
Passion Pit – September 11 (AT LAURIER)
Arctic Monkeys – September 15
Local Natives – September 21
Daughter – September 29
Two Door Cinema Club – October 15
