Buttons’ epic van nap

08 Aug 2011 | Categories: Jenavive News, On The Road | Posted by: Jenavive

Hey everyone,

The trip is going well so far, lots of time unloading and loading the van with all the gear.  We were staying at the Global Backpackers Village in Toronto, where I met some cool Irish people who where adamant about telling me the coolest bands back home for them. Still haven’t had the chance to listen to them yet, since we’ve been on the road and my battery doesn’t last long.

The hostel was decent, however the the humidity and the heat in Ontario is a bit much for someone from out west. On the way from Toronto to London, I was able to get one of my top 10 naps in life. The A/C in the car was enough to finally cool me off to the point that I could sleep comfortably. As soon as I laid my head down on the pillow in the Van, I drifted off, and shortly after woke up well rested in London.

We spent some great time visiting family and playing a couple small shows in London, and today we will be in Niagara Falls doing some touristy stuff.

Follow me on Twitter!

Thats all for now! Peace!

Canada Music Week was DECK!

17 Mar 2011 | Categories: Jenavive News, On The Road | Posted by: Jenavive

CMW was MEGA DECK! (Please correct me if I’m using slang wrong lol)
V-dot and I spent Canadian Music Week partying up with some epic bands from across the country. Here are a few of my personal favs:

Canadians:
Imaginary Cities

Young Galaxy
Makeshift Innocence (FROM CALGARY)
Krystle Dos Santos

A few fish from other ponds:
Janelle Monae had an amazing show at the Indies. I’ve never seen such an energy packed performance!
Kaya
Kieran Strange

Overall the week was incredibly inspiring and unbelievably daunting. I’ve returned home with a nasty sleep deficits and am strangely motivated to take it all on again next year.

Favourite CMW moments:

5. Seeing all my homies performing at Bread and Circus for the Alberta Showcase.

4. Sneaking into the Universal Records party at the Royal York Hotel. Such a rockstar move!!

3. Indiepool, an independent music service provider, bringing a “winning” goat to their booth. Lilly was the absolute sweetest goat I have ever met.

2. Indie awards with amazing acts like Hollerado and Janelle Monae

1. Hotel photoshoot with the V-ster that ended in a rap song and the perfect photo to showcase our super pimp attitudes.

The facebook fan page is up and running. Check it out for fun updates and new tunes.

Stay “tuned” for some exciting updates over the next month. Including:

3 new singles. One of which is feature on a full length feature film. More details to follow….

A YouTube channel! A little long in arriving I know. But it will be worth it.

New band members will be announced in a few weeks! You’re going to love them!
