Musing, mutterings and music: the blog

It's Marvest time in these parts 

Who's up for some Marvesting?

There's a harvest of local (to Ottawa) music being served up by the City Folk festival in the form of online concerts being released this fall.

Shows are being released every Wednesday and Saturday until the end of November.

You can watch these sets in the comfort of your own home, all for free.

Today my set was released which you can watch below. Grab a bowl of popcorn, your fave drink (maybe a Decide To Stay And Swim pale ale from Spark!), and stream away.

Set list:

Chaise Lounge

Calling All Kids Reunion 

The Disaster Drop 

Summertime Out 

Whisper Astrologics 

My Focal Point 

The Dead Weight Song 

Keep Me On Your Radar

"Decide To Stay And Swim" - the pale ale! 

Spark Beer released their new hazy pale ale this past Friday called, "Decide To Stay And Swim".

As some of you know, I played a live-stream set from their parking lot to celebrate this fantastic new beer! For those who didn't catch the live stream, here is the Instagram video of the stream (below) which is much clearer that what was on Facebook for some reason.

Also: I was joking with some pals saying that its always been my dream to be in "Canadian Beer News"! Haha. They did a little bit on Spark, the new pale ale and my album here: https://www.canadianbeernews.com/2020/10/15/spark-beer-releasing-decide-to-stay-and-swim-pale-ale/

So I've got that checked off my music career to-do list. Ha.

Cheers!

Announcing the Decide To Stay And Swim Pale Ale from Spark Beer 

This Friday (Oct 16) my friends at Spark Beer are releasing a new Pale Ale called Decide To Stay and Swim.   

I'll be doing a little acoustic live stream from their patio, Friday around 7pm, to help launch this new Pale Ale. Tune in via Facebook, and/or my Instagram feed: (https://www.instagram.com/populardemonamalgamating/) and watch us wing it!

I'm thrilled to support Spark Beer and help them get the word out about their fantastic craft beer. 

While obviously in stage 2 lock-down here in Ottawa, Spark Beer is taking extreme care to keep their socially distanced patios open, and provide safe take-out of their excellent beer lineup.  

So if you're able to drop by, have a socially distanced patio pint and/or grab some beers to go, maybe I'll see you there...from a distance. ;) 

Let's support local businesses as much as we can.  

We gotta keep helping each other while getting through this!  

"The Disaster Drop" - Decide To Stay And Swim Again - Live from the couch  

As you know, I wasn't able to play a live show to launch 'Decide To Stay And Swim Again' (for obvious reasons), so I decided to play the entire record from the couch! 

I'll be uploading each song to YouTube over the coming days and will also post them here on my site. 

You can subscribe to my YT channel to see them all here: youtube.com/chrispager

This is song #2 from the LP, "The Disaster Drop". 

And I do have a few vinyl copies left for those interested: Get the details here

Also, as times continue to be tough for many, instead of a personal 'tip jar', I'd ask that if you enjoy these videos, please consider making a donation to your local food bank. Tell them I sent you. For Ottawa, that's here: https://www.ottawafoodbank.ca/ 

Keep safe, my friends, and keep looking out for each other!
