Interview: Canadian rock band Mounties (Hawksley Workman, Steve Bays, and Ryan Dahle) - Part I

Posted by Paul Little | Thursday, December 25, 2014 @ 9:46pm

Mounties is a Canadian "supergroup" (in a quaint, Canadian sort of way) consisting of Hawksley Workman, Ryan Dahle (of Limblifter), and Steve Bays (of Hot Hot Heat). After releasing the single and accompanying video "Headphones" in January 2013 -- announcing the track and the existence of the band itself via a seemingly out-of-nowhere tweet from Hawksley -- the band eventually released their debut LP, Thrash Rock Legacy, in March 2014.

Comedian Big Daddy Tazz hosts his 14th annual fundraiser this Saturday in Winnipeg

Posted by Showbiz Monkeys | Thursday, January 22, 2015 @ 5:47am

Big Daddy Tazz has been performing at comedy clubs and theatres across Canada and beyond for years, making people laugh about the mundane while also opening up about his own struggles with bi-polar disorder. Originally from Saskatchewan, the self-described "Bi-Polar Buddah" moved to the thriving metropolis of Winnipeg, Manitoba to begin his career in show business as a stand-up comic, writer, actor, and voiceover artist. But along the way, he's also used his position as a sought-after comedian to shine light on issues that are important to him, namely children (he regularly works with children's health charities and speaks at schools across the country) and mental health initiatives.

Frankly, you likely won't find many entertainers around giving as much of their time to others as Big Daddy Tazz.

Album Review: Jon Steinberg - Between Me and the Wall

Posted by Tony Hinds | Sunday, January 18, 2015 @ 4:29pm

Jon Steinberg's hysterical new album, Between Me and the Wall is endearingly quaint and intimate. It feels less like a stand up special than a nightclub set, but just as entertaining. It's a weirdly-vibed show, peppered with whip fast crowd work, which blends together nicely.

He drifts around, discussing his girlfriend, who he refers to as weird, his life in comedy and his chronic (tee hee hee) marijuana use. If you put Mitch Hedberg and Doug Benson through the transporter machine from The Fly, what emerges from the other side would probably be Jon Steinberg.

Review: Frank

Posted by Tony Hinds | Sunday, January 4, 2015 @ 7:54pm

Frank is a rare tragicomic masterpiece, one that will surely divide audiences. Jon (the wonderfully endearing Domhnall Gleason; next seen in J.J. Abrams' forthcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens) is a young office worker who writes songs in his spare time. He adores music, and dreams of an artist's life. His silly songs display a true creative zest, even if the final product might not be Rick Rubin's cup of tea.

Jon stumbles into a chance to play with Frank (Michael Fassbender; Prometheus) and his band, the name of which is intentionally unpronounceable. Frank has a peculiar trait: He wear a large fake plastic head, an over-sized mask concealing his face. And he never removes it. Jon accepts Frank-- only to find himself dragged into this madcap world as the band hits the road in their cramped retro minivan.

Review: Serena

Posted by Tony Hinds | Thursday, December 4, 2014 @ 8:20pm

The charms of Serena's lead performers are worthy of note, but if we don't care about the characters they're portraying, we won't care when they start smashing into each other. And I just didn't care.

Album Review: Beatsteaks - Beatsteaks

Posted by Chris Hearn | Sunday, November 30, 2014 @ 5:59pm

Beatsteaks are one of my all-time favourite bands, so this review may come across as a tad biased. But, come ON, they are the Beatsteaks. To me, this is the best band Germany has given to the world (sorry Scorpions). Danke to you, Germany!

With each album I think, "Is this the one that is going to suck?" Each time, the answer is no. This is no exception. In fact, if you ask me it's one of their best albums. They are a band that is getting better with time. While other bands of their age, like Offspring for example, are looking a bit worse for the wear and don't have quite the same energy as they once did, Beatsteaks seem eternally youthful, maintaining their ability to entertain even after 20 years. Lead singer Arnim Teutoburg-Weiß must have some kind of fountain of youth, or is constantly drinking energy drinks laced with extreme happiness. Always smiling, always jumping around, always spot on perfect, he is a tremendous frontman that represents the band well. He can get a crowd worked up quickly, and drawn into his infectious personality.
