An Evening of Atlantic Dance

At the LSPU Hall, seeing my friend, Tony Tucker’s performance group, Dunungbe (dunungbe.com). 

They were great! The drumming was rhythmic, I couldn’t stop bopping my head. I was trying my best to focus on shooting, at the same time watching with own eyes, while enjoying the performance.

The performers were colorful and spurt into crazy power moves at times. They would cheer and scream, as if sometimes almost portray animals. Could this possibly be the forbidden dance????? 

A little info on the event, It’s happening all week. Try to make it down!

Backyard Show

There was a Backyard Show on Cookstown Rd. I managed to catch two acts before having to leave for supper. I wanted to try the Pho at the new Ramen resto downtown before going to a movie.

 The event started late and I chatted with a few friends from yesteryear before things went underway. 

The show was being livestreamed on Youtube. There was a laptop to the side with a webcam and ethernet cable running into the house. 

I had to walk through the stage to get into the house to pee. Luckily I did that before things started. 

Coward started the night due to another band that was supposed to open but one of the members got called into work. They were garagey, upbeat and had singalong songs! Funny guys to listen to in between sets. It was their last show with the lead singer? 

Black Market - Hard Ticket came next. synths, and unision melodic singing. The beats were great and danceable.


Keels


I had a chance to stay at a cute little house in Keels from my coworker Cecilia. Thank you Cecilia! It was a solo mission to stay there one day and roam around to take photos.

The movie ‘Maudie’ was filmed here, Look for the devil’s footprints engraved in the rock. 

Lots of nice people who are so approachable to have conversations with. A family from Philly bought an old church there and converted it into a summer home. 

It was quite, and not much went on, but the scenery and beauty was something to see with eyes.
