Omhouse - unknown

Full review to follow. Omhouse frontman Steven Foster used to play alongside Carmen Elle in Donlands + Mortimer, so it was no surprise to see him get the call to get the night started at this show. While this set wouldn't include any of the theatrics that would be incorporated into Army Girls' tour de force, it was a chance to highlight Foster's quickly-growing songbook and slightly-off-kilter pop sensibility, with sneaky hooks jabbing at you from unexpected angles — as learned from his professed influences Fred Penner and Bruce Cockburn.

* Does anyone know the title to this one? Please leave a comment!
