KELP 16 goes on tour!

We’re very excited to be hitting the road with KELP 16 this year. Traditionally, we have a weekend of shows here in Ottawa.

This year, we’re happy to announce that we’re including TORONTO and MONTREAL in the mix! We hope to see a whack of you out to these incredible shows…one of my musical heroes BILL FOX is coming up to play all three cities. For the uninitiated, in his late teens, Bill fronted a short-lived power pop band called THE MICE in the late 80s in Cleveland. He re-emerged in the late 90s with two stellar solo home-recorded records, only to disappear again. Last year he started playing some live shows in Cleveland, and has done a couple outside of the city, but this will be his first Canadian dates in well over a decade. Needless to say, we’re ecstatic.

Here are the tour dates:

WEDNESDAY MAY 12TH – Toronto, ON @ the Horseshoe Tavern (with Bill Fox, Andrew Vincent, Chris Page & Leif Vollebekk)
THURSDAY MAY 13TH – Montreal, QC @ Le Cagibi (with Bill Fox, Andrew Vincent & Beaver Sheppard)
THURSDAY MAY 13TH – SATURDAY MAY 15TH – Ottawa, ON @ various venues (with Jim Bryson, Chris Page, Bill Fox, Andrew Vincent, Leif Vollebekk, Flecton Big Sky, The Flaps, Andy Swan, Jenny Omnichord, The Secret Loves, Rhume, Camp Radio, Tres Bien Ensemble, The Michael Parks, The White Wires)
