Delaware House: The New Acoustic Underground

Delaware House: The New Acoustic Underground

The four dedicated souls in local indie rock band Howl literally live their art. They all moved into a house on Delaware Avenue and set up a basement studio for rehearsals and recordings. They also started putting on acoustic shows in their garage. How cool is that?!?

According to the band's bass player Scott Andrews, each show to date has turned into one big sing-a-long. The audience first consisted of the bands and their friends but it has slowly grown as new friends have been added to the circle.

I'm told the "Delaware House" is small (as most Toronto garages are), and the Howl boys have kept the shows completely acoustic - no microphones or amplifiers. There aren't too many shows like this happening around town at the moment, and their new Folk Yeah series continues tonight with at least ten different acts performing (!), including The Schomberg Fair and Proof of Ghosts.
