Live:: D-Sisive in Halifax

Good news: D-Sisive has finally made it. Well, this isn’t entirely true, as he makes perfectly clear on his latest record, the rather amazing Jonestown 2: Jimmy Go Bye Bye, he has yet to garner the kind of mainstream accolades he feels his body of work warrants (especially in the US of A), and he’s still waiting on that “fucking Juno (he) deserves.” Jonestown 2 has been incredibly received by Canadian music fans as well as industry, Polaris-y type folks, so that effing Juno might be on tap for next year.

 

So, this Friday night: D-Sisive live in Halifax at G Lounge (I’ve never been, but a click of that link reveals it to be a rather swanky establishment). Sounds like this is a one-off show, so if you’ve been hankering to see D-Sisive live since Jonestown 2 came out, don’t miss your chance.

 

You do have your copy of Jonestown 2, right? If not, I’d suggest you go and grab it now. I’ve heard D-Sisive describe it as his best work in recent interviews, and it’s hard to disagree with him. I’ve loved (and posted on) each of his previous records since The Book, but this one finds D at his most content I’d say. Oh he’s still angry, aiming his verbal 9-mil at the doubters and his own self-doubt in equal measure, but he seems extremely comfortable with what he’s doing right now. Add the excellent Muneshine production to the mix, and you’ve got a can’t miss package. So get out and see him Halifax.
