HPX 2010:: The Extremities

HPX 2010

So you’re in town for the Halifax Pop Explosion, and you’re wondering what to do with your time once you’ve crawled out of bed on Saturday afternoon and shaken off the after-effects of Friday night’s revelry? Well if you’re coherent by 1PM, I’d suggest checking out the Breaking the Band session at the Music Matters conference being held at the Citadel Hotel on Friday & Saturday. Despite the fact that he isn’t listed on the programme (that’s just par for the herohill course really), the Ack will join blog luminaries such as Matthew Jordan (You Ain’t No Picasso), Ro Cemm (Line of Best Fit), and Frank Yang (Chromewaves) discussing the various ways blogs can impact a band’s career. Should be an interesting, delusions of grandeur filled hour one would think (I keed, love you bloggers!).


Now if you can’t make 1PM, you should first call Kim Mitchell, because you sir or madam, are a wild party, but after chatting to Kim backstage at whatever Ontario Country Fair/Exhibition he was about to play at, you should certainly check out The Extremities at the Music Room at 3PM.


The Extremities are the production/DJ/MPC wizardry duo of Fresh Kils and Uncle Fester, and although I’ve discussed them on the hill before, I’m not sure the word has really gotten out about how talented these two gents are. They’ve been able to meld hip hop production and aesthetics with jazz in an incredibly enjoyable way, and whether they’re constructing a track for guest MC’s to rip, or making instrumentals with live musicians, they always hit the mark. The Music Room is a pretty interesting space, tiny and with amazing acoustics, so I’d guess it will be a cool place to see a show like this.
