Aussie / US duo headed for BC
This duo is hot! OK, I've known one of the two for decades. That would be Jen Todd, formerly of 3 Track Mind and currently a member of the Laura Love Band and Laura Love Duo. She's paired up with Mel Watson, one of the founding members of the indie band Fruit.
The Aussie band based in Adelaide toured for more than ten years, racking up accolades and awards, but in 2006 the group went in different directions.
Jen and Mel are on tour and playing in BC:
July 31: The Railway Club, Vancouver
August 1: Duncan Garage Showroom, Duncan
August 2: Gay Pride, Vancouver, BC
Closer to where I live on Whidbey Island, they'll be playing at the Conor Byrne Pub in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle on August 14.
Go hear these musicians -- they're great!
The tour begins at the CPR Steamship Terminal Building, located across the street from the BC Parliament Buildings pictured here. ©SueFrause...
