When I was first introduced to Lowlands by Spencer Shewen of Fortnight Music, it was one of the first times that I was really surprised by the quality of music coming out of Guelph. I don’t get surprised as much anymore as I’ve come to know some of the amazing musicians from around the area, […]

This is a BIG THANK YOU to everyone that has already contributed or helped spread the word about our campaign to go to print. The last couple of weeks we have seen a lot of great live music in Guelph and we’ve been to almost every show. Attendance has been great! Summer usually means show […]

Alex Ricci is a man of many bands and styles. He’s been an active part of the Guelph music scene, attending shows and playing in many bands, over the years.  Imprints is the first full length album by his newish band, Alex Ricci & The Still Nothing. It’s already available on their Bandcamp for digital download […]

I have one fond memory of Let It Bleed. I got it at Music In Orbit (I looked for a picture of the store front on the internet, but couldn’t find one) on vinyl for $8, because I was the only one to bid on it, during one of their weekly silent auctions. I also got the […]

This HAS to be done at some point. But which album? Black Sabbath had five albums in three years that were better than most bands whole catalogue. Their self-titled debut has the creepiest intro you’ve ever heard, to this day. It also created the genre of Heavy Metal. It’s just not quite enough to make […]

Guelph Music Club had our first round of sharing this week. It’s not too late to join and it’s not just for Guelphites. Click the following links for more info on the assignment or the rules, Our first writing assignment, which ran for this, and runs for another 4 weeks, is Top 5 Albums from 1963 to 1973. So […]

I got grounded a lot as a teenager. My parents thought it was the only form of discipline that worked. You know, to teach me a lesson. I’m not so sure it was, but in hind sight, I’m starting to believe that’s where my love of music started. I’d lock myself in my bedroom with […]

The long weekend kicked off with a bang, with GAIN Music and KronikNoise hosting American Hell, Anu Beginning, Unbowed, and Jetpacks to Jupiter at Red Papaya on Friday, May 17. Red Papaya is a large Thai restaurant – and bless their hearts, they also host metal shows! It was my first time there, and I […]

Our inaugural topic for #GuelphMusicClub! During a chat on Twitter last week, a pile of music fans, bloggers, Guelphites thought it would be fun to read/write their own opinions on a weekly set topic. For the rules and break down, read this. So The Bookshelf News mentioned a Top 5 list based on decade, with the first decade being 1963 to […]

Oh Twitter. Make one comment and next thing you know, #GuelphMusicClub is born. It started with The Bookshelf & Mike Gamble.   With the last reply I tried to open it up, just a little. And then the ball really started rolling… There are a pile more screenshots, but you get the idea. So if a dozen of us, […]

Mokomokai is a band that I would have loved when I was thirteen. I would have had posters on my wall, T-Shirts, all of their cassettes. I would have followed them into my twenties, with the extra income I would have as an adult, I would have seen them live on all their Greatest Hits […]

Hoodie Good is a name I recognize from posting shows in Guelph for almost two years but, up until Saturday, hadn’t had the opportunity to see live. Based on what I’d read, I expected a solo singer/song writer. I walked into The Cornerstone for week two of Hoodie Good’s May residency (brought to you by Fortnight Music) […]

I recently got a chance to sit down with Alex Snape (guitarist) and Nick Lennox (drummer) from local metal band Unbowed, to talk about their recent EP and future plans. Though I would’ve preferred a Viking ship as the location to conduct our interview, they’re a little hard to come by, so me and the […]

Over the years, I’ve had the pleasure of hearing Guelph band Bill Killionaire play several times, at several different venues. Over the last while, they’ve gone from a four or five piece band, down to two, and back up to a four piece. Singer and chief songwriter Scott Haynes and drummer Nathan Campagnaro were the […]

Electro, Dance, EBM, House. Guelph band Bowjia is all, and none, of these things. What they are is part of all of these genres, with added influences, and all mixed together. Bowjia have created a sound a little similar to a lot of things you’ve heard before, without duplicating it exactly, which makes their genre almost […]

I’ve been a fan of Your Neck Of The Woods since the first time I got to see them play live. I’m not exactly sure when that was. I’m not sure if I was at their first show, or if I’d just randomly come across them at one of Guelph‘s many venues for live music. […]

Welcome to V2.0 of Music Lives! It’s been almost 16 months (but who’s counting) since this project was started and a lot has changed. What hasn’t changed is the musical talent that comes from and through Guelph on a weekly basis. When we started talking about a site refresh we looked at all of our […]

I had the chance to see Catl and Jimmy Jazz, Guelph, on June 2nd, and am I ever glad I did. Their Bandcamp page describes them as “…a dirty, stripped down, juke-joint blues band that likes to drink, fight, and grind.” but that’s just the tip of the iceberg for this trio from Toronto. Here’s a […]

What happens when you cross R&B, a Marching Band, a little Ska and a pile of Hip-hop? St. Catherines’ My Son The Hurricane happens. Thanks to Fortnight Music I was able to see this great band live, for the second time at eBar, Guelph, May 10th, 2012. Some of you might be familiar with MSTH […]
