Taloola: Awesome Joint and it's Fun to Say.
I don't know if this post will reach anybody in time to alter their plans for this evening, but in the event that it does, Dave Dubois (of Windsor's, The Locusts Have No King) will be releasing his solo EP at Taloola Cafe (396 Devonshire Rd.) in the earlier part of the evening. Dave's set starts and finishes early, which allows plenty of time to pursue other endeavours as the night progresses, so there's no excuse to avoid dropping in. More importantly, Dave is a great singer/songwriter and an awesome guy. Music at Taloola is stripped down and personal and makes for one of the finest and most engaging experiences the city offers. I don't know exactly what it is, but eveybody who steps foot in that place seems to do so with a mind that is prepared to tap feet in time and throw a couple bucks in a hat for the musician's benefit. It's a very welcoming place complete with good, healthy grub and cold Steamwhistle's. I believe the operating procedure for Saturday night is that Dave will play a one hour set starting around 8:30. If nobody reads this in time, I won't be surprised or hurt and I imagine Dave won't be hurtin' for bodies, but keep Taloola in mind for some other Saturday evening primer, or anytime you have a hankerin' for a warm place in support of local art. When I have a bit more time I'll figure out how to leave sound bites and pictures, but that time is not now. Thanks for reading folks.
