Kristin and I played some voice+piano versions of Parkdale Revolutionary Orchestra songs (and some covers) at the opening party for Celeste Gillis’ art show at the Tranzac. Our mysterious friend Alan R. took a photo:
It was a good show – crowded and noisy, but a lot of fun. Since I don’t play the piano very often these days I’m finding that I really enjoy it when I do. Kristin was – as always – a nuisance to rehearse with: always complaining that I don’t know the songs properly. But the problem is that it’s only fun for me to play when I don’t know the material perfectly well… it’s more of an adventure when you know that you’re going to be making a lot of stuff up as you go!
Here’s a few of my favourites from this show:
Only the Sun:
Driving Me Backwards (Brian Eno):
The Day the Planes All Stopped (Chris Warren):
The Stars of Reality TV:
Impostor (Karl Mohr):
Letter From London:
Congratulations on the great art show Celeste – and thanks for inviting us!
