Yesterday I came across the image below of a settlement from Phish’s March 29, 1990 performance at The Canal Street Tavern in Dayton, Ohio. You’ll notice that the club reported only 16 paid attendees for this Midwest gig far from the band’s hometown of Burlington, Vermont.


The word that a legendary music venue is discontinuing it’s long-lived tradition of supporting music has been circling around among the local scene, but according to Canal Street Tavern’s website, it is now official.   Listed on the venue’s online calendar for Saturday, November 30th, at 9pm, The Future Laureates and Shrug will be performing for the last time on this memorable stage, and then the music will cease to be heard as Canal Street Tavern.  The site officially states that this is “the last official show of Canal Street Tavern”, so there is still confusion about what exactly is going on.  However, it looks like a name change and some other major changes are in store.


This month I am lucky enough to get to promo an alternative/hard rock band I know extremely well, because it’s a band that I actually front called, Killed By Art!  Due solely to the nomination and support of Killed By Art fans, KBA caught 3rd place in Music Connection’s September Featured Band contest and earned some free promo this month, so I get to actually tell you a little bit about one of my favorite projects ever, Killed By Art!

Just 4 years ago, I was passing through life’s daily grind and doing nothing musically at that time, except singing along with the car stereo or in the shower, when I get this amazing offer to try and sing and front a new hard rock project, and I found I just couldn’t refuse!  I had found a fantastic new outlet of expression for myself, and after some lineup adjustments and song-writing developed nicely in the first year of the project, we finally established a crazy good 5-member lineup (Kimberly Weiss-vocals; Bill Kirkbride-Guitar; Nathan Goff-Guitar & backing vocals; Todd Panstingel-Bass & backing vocals; Brian Wise- Drums) and a name, Killed By Art.
