First, my little brother, Sean, put out an album with one of the bands he's drumming for: SMUG. These guys are so unique and it's cool to hear my little bro rock! Check 'em out! www.smugband.com
I also saw two former "nunnies" from The Tragic and Horrible Life of the Singing Nun, showingcasing their own unique personal works.
Robby Stamper, the musical director for Nun, premiered one of his compositions at the York Theatre's 4@15 showcase, and it was great. What a treat to hear and see new up and coming artists. Really Phenomenal!
And then I saw Kristine Zbornik's cabaret at the Metropolitan Room. This show is beyond compare. Seriously, I have never seen anything that comes close to the hauntingly wild humor of Kris' show. It is darkly comic, outrageous and moving, a true tour de force. Simply Google Kristine Zbornik and you'll see what I'm talking about. Go see her while you can!!!!
Lastly, I got to work on a webisode of The Onion News Network last week, and it was so much fun! Those of you who know The Onion know it's very satirical, so I don't want to spoil this upcoming webisode by giving anything away. Suffice it to say that I got to work with some really awesome folks, including Miss Babs and the Kickin Boogie Band. Everyone was at the top of their game and I enjoyed getting to work in such a professional and improvisational environment. It felt like a cross between Christopher Guest's films and SNL. So much fun!!!
