An old friend of mine from way back has been playing in a band for a few years now (Punger) and they have recently released an EP. After a long wait, I received my copy in the mail yesterday, as promised (I had actually all but forgotten that my friend had said he'd send it to me). However, I was pleasantly surprised that not only did my friend send me the EP, he also included a USB-Key so that I can plop the tunes onto my iPod, and a DVD of some of the band's videos and performances. You can check them out on MySpace here and YouTube here if you are curious. Or, if you are in the Toronto area, swing by the Fox and Fiddle some Wednesday night and check them out (they host a weekly Open Jam at 9pm) and keep your eyes pealed for other local performances (they have played at the Horseshoe Tavern as well as several festivals and have also appeared on Toronto's Talent). I happen to think they are well worth a listen ;)
Also, as I am leading an incredibly boring life at the moment and need something to look forward to, I thought I'd put in a plug for Republic of Doyle, which I am anxiously awaiting. It is set to premiere tomorrow evening at 9pm PST on CBC. I really hope it meets and exceeds my expectations. The last thing we need is another crappy series on TV. It should be different, if nothing else!
