Announcement

-Perhaps it’s because it ends in a 13, but this year has seen some unusual and unfortunate events. For instance-

After 22 years of rock n’ roll co-conspiracy, commitment and comradery Stephen Stanley has decided to leave the Lowest of the Low.

We wish him all the best in his future endeavours.

Just like our friends the endotherms, it’s time to begin waking up and thinking about making some noise.

But to start, the Low will be part of the Toronto Urban Roots Festival, which is shaping up to be one awesome festival from July 4-7 at Fort York in Toronto.

“Born To It” DVD release show

From our good friend Tim Thompson:

Hello Friends,

I’m writing to let you know that “Born To It” – the documentary I made about independent musicians – is finally coming out on DVD. To help launch it into the world, I’m throwing a party – a release concert on Wednesday, September 19th at the Underground in the Drake Hotel. The show will be performances by all five of the musicians in the film – Ron Hawkins, Stephen Stanley, Wayne Petti, Alun Piggins and Elissa Mielke.

If you were at the film’s premiere at the Royal theatre back in 2009, the concert afterwards was spectacular, and I can’t wait to get the old band back together!

There will be advance tickets available at www.victimlesscapitalism.com

And here’s a link with more information and some words about the film itself.

I’d love it if you could make it out!
Hope to see you there,
Tim

Born To It
