Show Notes

Jon couldn't make it to the recording session, so he was temporarily replaced by Mr. Dave Halcrow, of local bands like The Brat Attack and Talk City (who had one song on the Be Our Friend compilation, but I'm hoping to get more of their music on here.) Dave was a good substitute, and played stuff that neither Rob nor I would have otherwise listened to, so it was cool. Expect more guest hosts in future, as our schedules are such that getting all three of us in a room at the same time isn't always a given. Rob is going to Europe soon, so we'll have some fill-in hosts while he's gone as well.

WR252: Odd Outfit

This week's guests are experimental psychedelic jazz-fusion instrumental (that's already a mouthful, plus they throw 'shoegaze' in there somewhere) group [Odd Outfit](https://oddoutfit.bandcamp.com/releases).

This episode is brought to you by the first-annual Winnipeg Weekender; two nights of live music, DJs and comedy presented by (among others) our friend, UMFM DJ Aaron "The Invisible Man" Young. The show happens Oct. 21 and 22 at the Pyramid Cabaret and the Yellow Dog Tavern. ...

WR167: Super Duty Tough Work / Keisha Booker

Dilla Day 2016 at The Good Will in Winnipeg: an interview with Brendan Kinley of Super Duty Tough Work and R&B chanteuse Keisha Booker. It's the second time Super Duty have organized Dilla Day Winnipeg, which is to honour the late great hip hop producer's life and works. The night had guest performances by 3Peat, Fenom, Bazooka Joe, Chris Bvnnvtt and Keisha Booker. Together since 2014, Super Duty Tough Work is the brainchild of Brendan Kinley. He's an accomplished drummer and MC that has been in the Winnipeg music scene for a decade. They're an ensemble of musicians from the University of Manitoba's School of Jazz. SDTW plays 40 Dilla beats as they weave between them with the meticulousness of a DJ. The players at the 2016 performance: B.Grey (vox), Keisha Booker (vox), Shannon Kristjanson (alto sax), Anthony Bryson (trombone), Alec Meen (keys), Sam Little (bass), Kevin Water (drums), Jocelyn Gould (guitar). ...
