THE VICTIM PARTY


LA BELLE PROVINCE/MOVING PICTURES WITH SOUND/CONTEST/SIMIANS

Bonjour! Plenty of wonderful things are afoot. Firstly, we are playing two awesome shows next week. It all begins when we will be joined by some very good friends for this potentially delightful soiree:

Following that TVP will be making our first trans-provincial journey to Quebec! Poutine, smoked meat, beer that’s sold in convenience stores, Drawn and Quarterly, and of course this weekend of high culture:

Now a few of our pen-pals have written in, asking where the hell our name is on that poster? To be honest, I have not skimmed the tiny print to see if we’re listed….in all likelihood we aren’t as there was a slight procrastination problem on our end when it came to confirming and handing in our band information. Fear not though, we are playing, and on a great bill to boot. Check the details here. We’re on at 9:25pm at Cafe Chaos on Saturday night.

But enough about our shows. Let’s talk about our bodies, on film, not lip synching. Below is a short video that our buddy Mike Philper shot of us rocking out in our jam space during a practice, intercut with us rocking out in someone else’s jam space in front of some very disinterested drinkers. It’s the first time we’ve done anything like this so we hope you enjoy.

In honour of this auspicious occasion we have devised a simple contest for you to enter.

Step 1.Watch the video carefully

Step 2.fill in these blanks:

“what would ____ _____ do?”

Step 3. Come out to our Toronto (May 15 @The Bovine) or Montreal (May 18th @Cafe Chaos) shows, find Patrick and be the first to utter the above phrase.

If you find Patrick first and utter the correct words and you are a person that has reached the legal drinking  age for either province, Patrick will buy you, on behalf of The Victim Party,  1 domestic beer. Incidentally,  when you speak to Patrick you should congratulate him on completing the Toronto Marathon.

Oh, yes, one more thing, this is the design for our new t-shirt which will be debuting at our Pouzza show.

Have a good one, and keep those letters coming.
