Ohbijou CD Release Party!

For anyone who reads my postings, you know that every 4th or 5th posting is usually about Ohbijou, right? Well I'm here to tell you that you're SO RIGHT!

They're delightful, they're quiet, they're loud, and they're in your face with their first CD entitled 'Swift Feet For Troubling Times'. Ohbijou are having a CD release party this Friday, September 1st at The Drake Underground along with Ottawa's The Acorn and Blocks members' The Phonemes.

I've listened to the cd (so much that I can join in on some of the songs and play the spoons) and it really is as wonderful as their live performances sound. 'Swift Feet For Troubling Times' is 12 tracks of sway songs and road-trip melodies. I'll review the record later, but instead I'm making you all go check out something sweet on Friday night.

When: Friday, September 1st
Where: The Drake Undergrund
Time: Doors @ 9 / first act @ 10
Cost: $6
