Show alert: a Capitol idea-- Elliott BROOD Sat., Jan. 29

If you want a preview of tracks from Elliott BROOD's upcoming album (Six Shooter Records, estimated release in June), join us on Sat., Jan. 29 for their show at Windsor's Capitol Theatre ($18 at the door, or click here for tickets).

They unveiled a few at the New Year's Eve show we attended in Toronto. The BROOD has set high expectations following Mountain Meadows, a 2009 Polaris Prize short-lister, but the raucous crowd at Lee's Palace made it hard to give the new songs a fair listen. Although it's a homecoming show for Windsor natives Mark Sasso and Casey LaForet, the audience should be a little tamer on Saturday-- at least until it's time for BROOD standards "Valley Town" and "Write It All Down For You."

The Capitol is only a few stumbles down from the Phog Lounge. The beleaguered landmark has been in bankruptcy. Here's the latest on the theatre's future; more info and vintage photo of the interior here.
