Hey Bros,
Neon Windbreaker has a new guitarist/bassist, his name is Matt. He replaced Shehzaad who performed his last show with us on February 20th when we performed alongside Lullabye Arkestra and Simply Saucer.

We've already written a number of new songs with Matt and look forward to both recording them and playing them live.

Now to the live part, we have a bunch of shows coming up:

Feb 26 -Toronto @ an empty house
Mar 3 - Toronto @ horseshoe tavern (email for free entry)
Mar 4 - Kingston @ the merchant (We're playing with ryan malcolm from Canadian Idol's band on the 3rd and 4th. Supposedly there is a booth named after him in Kingston at an East Side Mario's, which is his hometown. Guess where we're having dinner?)
Mar 12 - Toronto @ silver dollar (Pop Montreal CMW showcase)
Mar 16-19 - Austin @ SXSW (schedule to be announced next week)
+ many shows in Toronto, Sudbury, NYC, Montreal and Ottawa to soon be announced.

So our sandwich, fruit and mixed drink show was a huge success in terms of attendance, maximum fun achieved and people talking about it. The downside was I lost my voice prior to the show having been sick for a week and a half with the lost voice being the final send-off. That being said, we still had fun and have a lot of shows coming up where I can redeem myself.

Neon Windbreaker went into Angles Up Studio yesterday to record a proper record with Leon Taheny. Vocals will be recorded next week when my vocal chords heal.

Here is a video from last week courtesy of The Untold City:

#1. info for our release show is one post below.
#2. download our unmastered, live off the floor EP by clicking on the handsome fellow in the image posted right above these words.


So Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow today meaning an early spring is potentially in store. The looming threat of a snow apocalypse in Toronto is nearing a close as well. These two facts offer a direct correlation of how much fun will be shared at Neon Windbreaker's sandwich + fruit release show on February 3rd in Toronto.

We'll be offering a free download of our EP online starting tomorrow. The EP is roughly mixed, unmastered and was recorded in our practice space live off the floor save for some vocal overdubs.

Hope to see you at the show, here's the info:

Thursday February 3 @ Rainbow Palace (213 Augusta, through the alley, last door on the left)

Neon Windbreaker
Child Bite

+ DJs Sex Magician and Princess Ariel

9PM. $5 at the door. Licensed. Bands between 9:45-11:45, DJs before, during and after. This show will run on time as much as possible. Neon Windbreaker doesn't play long sets, so show up on time Toronto and stop being cool with how late you show up. Sunrise is set for 7:31am on Friday, so if you show up that late or early depending on how you look at it, you've FAILED.
