Hot Snake Handlers: A new band emerging from the tormented mind of Lefty McRighty. The Hot Snake Handlers offer up a high octane mix of classic country, rockabilly and blues. I saw their first gig a few months back and they really heated up the stage. Don't miss them at House of Targ tonight.
The Acorn: A project led by Ottawa's Rolf Klausener since 2002. The Acorn has sprouted and taken root in the nation's capital since then amassing 2 Polaris Music Prize nominations and a handful of dark-electro-soul recordings. With the release of Vieux Loup, The Acorn are back home tonight for a BBQ and a gig at House of Common (11b Fairmont Ave).
I look forward to chatting with our guests today. Tune in at 5 pm on 89.1 FM in Ottawa or online at CHUO.fm. You can also find us on iTunes radio under College stations and on #943 on Rogers HD.
