Video Hits:: HPX ’11 Edition!

Well we’re stubbornly continuing our attempt to post as many songs as we can from the roster of this year’s Halifax Pop Explosion, and so naturally we’re using our weekly Video Hits post to feature some of the folks playing the fest.

 

We’re leading off with NY’s The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, who’s set headlining the Wednesday, Oct. 19th show at the Olympic Community Hall should be a rather popular ticket I would think. Up next we have the Rural Alberta Advantage, who return to HPX after having played here in ’08 as part of the herohill hearts music showcase, but this time, instead of being up 2nd on a four act bill, they will be headlining the Saturday night show at St. Mathew’s church. That should be pretty amazing. Speaking of amazing shows at St. Mathews’s, Timber Timbre’s set there in ’09 was pretty amazing, and I don’t doubt that his headlining turn there this time around on Friday, Oct 21st should be just as great.

 

As a bonus, I’m also putting up These Days Are Old from Spookey Ruben. Yes, Spookey Ruben. If you watched MuchMusic in the mid 90′s, no doubt you remember seeing this video at some point and going “Uhhhhhhhhhhh, what?” Well perhaps, like me, you haven’t been keeping up with Spookey’s doings these many years since. I have good news then, as you’ll get your chance to catch up with Spookey live and in person when he headlines a show on Friday Oct. 21st at the Khyber. Enjoy the vids!
