Join us tonite, Tuesday, June 21st, at The Beaver (1192 Queen Street West) as we celebrate Robin Gibb starting at 9:30 Pm with the velveteen double album melodramatic orch-pop opus Odessa by the Bee Gees. THIS IS A DOUBLE ALBUM ABOUT A SINKING SHIP! NOT DISCO! REMOVE THE STIGMA FOR GREAT SIBLING HARMONIZING ORCH-POP! It was the single from this album that made Robin leave the act and his brothers to make two solo albums Robin's Reign and the rare, precious, and unreleased Sing Slowly Sisters: we'll be playing both! Melancholia, speed, and strings, and drum machine. It's like "There's A Riot Goin on" if Sly Stone was a skinny white Commonwealther with bad teeth. We'll also be playing The Bee Gees without Robin, the Bee Gees with Robin back in the band, and some early 80s electro pop work by Robin. And more!
If you think The Bee Gees were only about disco, you couldn't be more wrong....I'll be mostly spinning some great maudlin orch-pop!
Prizes and projections by Eyesore Cinema.

"I do this for you, there is nothing else like this, the mood of the room is shaped by what I provide, I am so honed like a beam of light that the Midnight Candlelight Recitation will be intensely fashioned and crafted going to` places unexpected. I will make love to you with my voice and soul and musical selections, I don't care who you are, NO COVER but the cover of night.Your life energies need us, this is a nice city but a tad stiff, it needs a massage, my hands can do that, lower, lower, lower, lower....
My Midnight Candlelight recitation is always a hit with the people! What are recitations? Intense spoken reflections of the soul in a romantic manner. We are here to help you get through this mortal life. Have a request? I will fulfill you in a voice that has been trained and honed from the deepest core of my being. Close your eyes? Is this a record? No, it's me talking to you right now, there'll be records after."
