The Hoots | A Waste Odyssey | Videos, Shows, Recording

   While we know you must all have a lot to choose from, entertainment-wise, this upcoming Halloween weekend. One show that we think you should definitely check out is this Friday at The Standard. The Hoots are having a little party to help raise some funds for their upcoming album, and they have brought A Waste Odyssey and the Heat Rat Magnets to help em' show everyone a good time.

       Both The Hoots and A Waste Odyssey are going to be recording new material during the upcoming months so make sure you keep checking back as we will have all the updates regarding everyone's recording and how its going.

   And, if you are unsure about whether or not you are going to attend this Friday, check out these videos of The Hoots and A Waste Odyssey at the showcase show. I'm sure it will get you in the mood. See ya there.

Little House Hiatus | Video | Merchandise

 Lots of Little House news. And while it may not seem like good news at the time, it will relate to very promising things in the future. First, and foremost, you wont be seeing Little House playing in Winnipeg anytime soon (with the exception of one last show, announced below). The boys are taking time off from playing live to write and record their full length album over the fall/winter. You will not be seeing them until that album is done and ready. They want to take the time to concentrate on solely songwriting and getting a great recording of all their new material. 

So, if you would like to see them one last time before they retreat underground, come out to this show. 
 The guys are playing with P.E.I.'s own Paper Lions, and if you aren't excited that this band is coming to town, you should be. The show is at everyone's favourite hangout, The Lo Pub, and it will be a great night. Make sure you get out early, as tickets are only $8 and its going to fill up quick. 
If you dont know who Paper Lions are, check out paperlions.com

And, if you missed the Showcase show back in September, you might not know that Little House is dragging around a big box of new merchandise! That's right, new shirts and a limited run of a special recording they did at The Gimli Theatre. All items are below. If you are in the Winnipeg area, the items can be delivered/picked up. But if you are from out of town, there will need to be shipping paid. 






And last but not least, the guys have a new video up! The video was shot at the I'm Trying Records Showcase as Little House played to a packed Lo Pub. We hope you enjoy it, and at least this will give you something to watch, as you wait out the long cold months without Little House.

Thanks, guys.
