CANASTA - Friday @ Sub-T w/ Elf Power + "Chicago Free Press"

(sent on 2004-11-18)

Hey everybody,

Just a reminder that Canasta is playing Subterranean this Friday, Nov. 19, opening for psychedelic popsters Elf Power and The Late B.P. Helium (members of Of Montreal). The show will begin at 10 PM, and we'll be up first, so make sure you get there early. (Especially if you want to catch Thax Douglas introduce us with his new poem, "Canasta #1"!) These bands are coming all the way from Athens, GA, so we're excited about the show and hoping to have a really good turnout. (That's where you come in, hint hint.)

We also just got a nice mention in today's "Chicago Free Press." Critic Gregg Shapiro calls us a "new band worth following" and writes, "Find The Time by Canasta is a lovely disc of pop tunes buoyed by strings, keyboards and kept aloft by Matt Priest's strong vocals." Aww, thanks!

See you all on Friday!
