Live Show August 5th, 2011 @ Oasis

I’m playing a show at the Oasis Pub & Eatery August 5th (it’s next Friday…) and I haven’t put it on the blog yet… UNTIL NOW.

Check out the poster:

So, I hope you all can make it out!!



Open Mic Time Slot Change

Hey all!

First off thanks to all those that came out to the Open Mic Tuesday last night. It was a good time, eventually! Everyone showed up late. The trend in later arrivals by musicians is fine, but to accommodate them, things need to change.

Based on the fact that from 9pm to 10pm, we (the Oasis) receive nearly no visitors for Open Mic, we’re going to change the time slot. Instead of the established 9pm to midnight, we’ll be running 10pm to 1am. This should move us into a better place for the crowd we seem to be drawing.

Open Mic + Keith’s Bday! (Oct. 5th)

Not only is tomorrow night the amazing Open Mic at the Oasis, but it’s also a revered Haligonian’s birthday.

Alexander Keith was born in 1795. He was mayor of Halifax 3 times. He sat on city council and bank boards of directors for years and years. What’s he most famous for? Yes… beer. Welcome to Nova Scotia.

Be at the Oasis for 9pm Tuesday night for Open Mic, 5$ appetizers, 13.50$ pitchers of Keith’s IPA (or 15.75$ pitchers of Keith’s Red), plus the pleasure of my company! EVERYBODY WINS! [Facebook group] [Official Oasis website]

See you there!


Filming done… bring on the music!

With the shooting of the short film Centre Circle almost done (a few loose ends need wrapping up), I’m glad to have the Open Mic @ The Oasis event to fall into. Last week’s failed launch aside, I think the Open Mic will be a great thing for myself, for the Oasis, and for the students of DAL and SMU who may be looking for places to showcase their talent.

Want to perform, yourself? It’s every Tuesday at 9pm. Oh, and they’ve just launched 5$ appetizers on Tuesday nights. Any app on the menu (except the team platters) is only 5$ plus tax. Need more incentive? How about 10$ pitchers? Tons of reasons to stop by on Tuesdays.

Now that I’m done plugging the bar and my Open Mic show, I’m going to go have a nap. I’m sick and tired. Actually sick, and really quite tired. So if you don’t mind… my cat is saving my seat on the couch. Yeah, we nap together.


Burning the scorched wick…

Hey all,

I’ve decided that “burning the candle at both ends” doesn’t quite describe my current situation. The candle is long since spent. The only thing left is the little black piece of thread that once held the wax together. That is all that remains burning.

I worked a gruelling 13 hour day yesterday that ended at 4am. I got home at 5am. I have to be on set for CENTRE CIRCLE at 8am, which means catching a bus at 7am, which means that since it’s now 630am, I’m almost running late. I calculate that before I sleep, I’ll have been up 39 hours straight! Sweet, eh?

Today we shoot at the courthouse. This should be fun. After the courthouse, we’re going to Shearwater to shoot the outdoor arena scene. After that, I’m going back to work at the Oasis where I will have the privilege of closing all over again. Don’t worry, Halifax… I’m not complaining. If I didn’t love making movies and working at the Oasis, I’d just cut one. This is not a complaint. Just an update.

As previously mentioned, however, I’ve got to go. Busses to catch, movies to make, beers to push onto others.


Movies & music!

Did an ad for the Open Mic @ the Oasis. It’s coming back. Tuesdays starting September 7th, 2010. From 9pm to midnight. You should go! I’ll get the facebook event made soon.

I’m also shooting a movie. I landed a principal role in a short film called “Center Circle”. It’s a comedy about 3 friends who try and take street hockey to a professional level. I play the washed up ex-Moosehead hockey player who’s the captain of the team.

I will try to keep this blog more up to date. Funny that the more I have on my plate, the more I want to tell you what’s going on, yet the less time I have to do it. IRONY.

On a personal note, I’m moving at the end of this month. Want to help me move? (Staying in Dartmouth, just relocating.)
