This Wed., April 1st, Conspiracy Of Familiar Objects will hit the stage again for the first time since our gig opening for Wolf Eyes...oh, when was that?...what?! really?!...apparently, it was April 1, 2008. Weird...exactly one year since we last played together. Guess that makes it some kind of anniversary/reunion show. Well, you wouldn't want to miss something like that!
Of course, it's not really a complete reunion since Andrew Zukerman is no longer with us. I don't mean he died, I mean he just isn't in the project any more. Don't worry though, AZ will be there Wednesday night, he's DJing. Jon Shapiro and I will be recruiting Kevin Crump (Disguises) to fill in for Andrew for this set. For future COFO performances, we'll likely do the "rotating third member" thing (as painful as it sounds!), inviting a new guest player for every gig. Assuming that there will be future COFO performances (ahem, every April 1st?).
Oh, and I guess we won't actually be "hitting the stage" for this show since the gig is happening in a video store and I'm pretty sure there's no stage. We'll be hitting the floor instead.
I'd like to tell you exactly where and when this auspicious, or suspicious, occasion is set to take place but, since "Last Minute" Crump is the organizer, I don't have the details yet. Here's what I do know:
Wed. April 1/09
some video store in Parkdale, Toronto
10pm probable start time
10:10 Brian Random Answering Machine
10:30 Thrashed Jeans Acoustic show
Andrew Zukerman DJ
everybody out before midnight
PWYC? $5? Who knows...
Crump did want to make sure I didn't forget to advertise the $2 Porn DVD sale! Good to see he has his priorities straight! (hmmm...note to self, take some cash to the show Wed. night).
OK, I'll post more deets as soon as I get 'em. Unless this all turns out to be an elaborate April Fools joke.
PS: after much googling, I managed to find the name and address of the video store. It's 7-24 Movies and More, 1530 Queen Street West at Fuller. My detective services are for hire, should you ever need them...
