Show Notes

We're not the only game in town. A group of Osborne Village residents going by the name The Village Idiots have also been exploring Winnipeg's vibrant music scene.. but instead of a podcast, they're focused on live-streaming. The Idiots' Wednesday night program, Live at the Roslyn, offers local artists the chance to perform in an intimate setting for an ever-growing audience tuning in via Facebook Live. We sat down with the Live at the Roslyn braintrust to talk about their project, about embracing social technology to promote local music, and more.

WR309: Ticketmomster

This episode's guest is a bit of mystery. The writer known as [Ticketmomster](http://www.facebook.com/TicketMOMsters) has been penning anonymous, fly-on-the-wall style pieces about a wide range of Winnipeg concerts for some time now, and she's thus far managed to hold on to her secret identity. We don't drop any big hints during this interview, but we do discuss Ticketmomster's choice of remaining anonymous, her unique -- and untrained -- storytelling style, her favourite local artists, and much more! Thanks to everyone who has supported the podcast thus far. Thanks to supporters like you, we can keep churning out interviews twice a week!

WR355: Shadez

It's a sit-down in a bar with the three MCs behind one of the city's iconic rap groups. The legendary [Shadez](http://www.instagram.com/shadesofblack_204/) are celebrating the [20th anniversary of their 'Comprehension' album](http://soundcloud.com/lenbowenmusic/shadez-ov-blac-comprehension-xx-anniversary-edition-mixed-by-dj-swift), and they talked about the good old days of their '90s heyday, the way the scene has changed, re-visiting these songs two decades later, and a lot more. Note: Since this was recorded in a bar, there's some shitty background noise that means the sound quality isn't amazing. It improves somewhat after the first few minutes (mainly due to moving the recorder), so please bear with it. One of the hazards of the have-mic-will-travel gig. Definitely a crucial interview despite that, though. This episode is brought to you by our friends at [the Park Theatre](http://myparktheatre.com/) and by [Demedash Effect](http://www.demedasheffects.com/)s, a local company that makes hand-made guitar effect pedals like the glorious T-120 Videotape Echo.

WR452: Book of Ghosts

This episode features an interview with Matt Pitre from super heavy new(ish, but a long time in-progress) alternative/experimental metal project [Book Of Ghosts](http://www.instagram.com/bookofghostsofficial/)! It's a fun chat about the band’s debut record, playing brutally heavy music that is also accessible and catchy, the trials and tribulations of trying to put on a show with something that – up to now – has just been a recording project, and much more! This episode is brought to you by our pals at [the Park Theatre](http://www.myparktheatre.com/) and by new-on-the-scene acoustic duo [Nineteen](http://www.facebook.com/nineteenacoustic/), breaking the boundaries of jazz, folk and pop. They're playing [Jan. 17 at X-Cues](http://www.facebook.com/events/1041433856209392/)! ...
