!! OMG, SSION movie ‘BOY’ to screen in Toronto !!

BOY still 7.jpg
Forget TIFF, it’s all about SSION. The Midwestern glam punk rockers are bringing their debut full-length musical feature BOY to Toronto on August 28. Directed by band mastermind/pop artist Cody Critcheloe, the film combines nine music videos into an hour-long D.I.Y. narrative about teenage love, longing and rock n’ roll idolatry. The film premiered in SSION’s hometown Kansas City last year and has been touring the globe ever since. Following the screening at Mercer Union, Cody will perform at the after party at Hotnuts. Full details via Facebook. Check out the trailer for BOY below:

!! OMG, watch your back under those ‘Patio Lanterns’ !!


Our Canadian readers will probably remember songsmith Kim Mitchell’s homespun classic “Patio Lanterns,” but I now present the video to the rest of you so you can scratch your head at everything from the odd lyrics to Kim’s bizarre hat/wig to his awkward interaction with the keyboard player (2:43) to his creepy smile (1:47). (Thanks to Margot for the tip!)

!! OMG, Happy Canada Day! !!


I was going to post Jann Arden’s Insensitive (which came on while I was at the gym yesterday, much to my delight!) but instead decided to celebrate with my favorite Saskatoonette: Joni Mitchell. Don’t you love her with this perm? O, Canada!
