Show Notes

It's a conversation (recorded from inside a closet) with local metalcore outfit [Epirus](http://epirus.bandcamp.com/releases)! We talked about their upcoming EP, life as a band during the pandemic, easycore (which was a new one on me), and much more. This episode is slightly shorter than usual, because there's only one song as opposed to the usual four. Their EP isn't out yet, so the only track we used in the podcast was the debut single, "It's Not Me". This episode is brought to you by our friends [the Dirty Beat](http://www.instagram.com/thedirtybeat/) and [Jared Adams](http://tragicnostalgia.ca/). Don’t forget to help out our pals at [the Park Theatre](http://www.gofundme.com/f/a-helping-high-five-for-the-park-theatre)! Huge thanks to everyone who supports the podcast on [Patreon](http://www.patreon.com/witchpolice). You can help out for as little as $1 a month if you like the show and want to throw some change in the guitar case!

WR290: Joe Curtis at Mom's House

As many of you are likely aware, I've been guest-hosting a (video) show about local musicians from time to time. It's called 'Mom's House', and it's the brainchild of a group of up-and-coming Manitoba filmmakers called Young Media. We decided to use the interview portions of the episodes I host and release them in audio form as bonus podcasts! This first Witchpolice at Mom's House episode features a great conversation with local singer-songwriter [Joe Curtis](http://www.joecurtisband.com/). The audio you're about to hear is just my interview with Joe. To see the full Mom's House episode, which includes live performances, head down to [Young Media's website](http://weareyoungmedia.com/the-moms-house-sessions) or their [YouTube channel](http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCDcPW3OBfNHoOitVKkGhSlQ) to check it out. It should be available on Sunday. ...
