kickstarter campaign: Ruby Spirit: “We hope so, too. Bigger than Jes-”

(email|facebook|twitter) They say, "kaleidoscopic indie-rock band drizzled with pop confections." We say, "anti-shoegaze microhearts." Either way, they are bound to the same, inviolable rules of economics as the rest of us. So they're...

“Lights on the stage and it feels alright/ Nobody’s getting paid but it feels alright”

“Lights on the stage and it feels alright/ Nobody’s getting paid but it feels alright”

MuseMinionsTM will recall that in October of last year we introduced a “Toronto bachabilly five-piece” named The Ruby Spirit. The EP was named Born Under A Veil, and had been released the month before. If memory serves, we wrote something unintelligible about a Denis Johnson novel and threw in the statistically improbable phrase “sexy bipolar guitar.” But what occurred to us more than that was how the EP sounded not lively, but live. From the pulsing opening track, to the outdoor dissonance of “Sound of the Bell,” to the tumbling growler “Fix + Repair,” it all sounded like a concert getting ready to break out spontaneously.

Fitting that our guest bloggers of choice are embarking on a May tour, hence the poster above. And since that guy has the penmanship of a radiologist, we’re going to transcribe it for you here. And not charge you $250 per reading:

May 6th | Buffalo, NY @ The Mohawk Place – (w/ Dolfish + On Beta)
May 12th | Manhattan, NYC @ Bowery Electric
May 18th | Ottawa, On @ Zaphods Beeblebrox
May 21st | Windsor On @ Phog Lounge – (w/ Say Domino)
May 26th | Manhattan, NYC @ Bowery Electric
May 28th | Toronto, On @ The Great Hall – (w/ The Wilderness + Bella Clava)

The Great Hall is also hosting the Band of Heroes release party on May 28. From their home page: “Band of Heroes is a new graphic novel chronicling the adventures of Toronto indie bands, the Wilderness, Bella Clava, Lovely Killbots & The Ruby Spirit in a fictional story set in the streets, clubs and various nook and crannies of Toronto surviving tragedies and adventures of epic proportions.”

It all sounds lively. Don’t miss it! Stream our favorite three minutes of Ruby right here:
