Mayor McCa (mic-KAW) is bink-bink-bonk-ing and babada-babada-doo-ing his merry arse into town this weekend for a couple all-out, all-appendage shows. The Mayor will demonstrate to the humble citizens of St. John’s how to become a sovereign one-man-band musicapality.
Take a peek into the Mayor’s briefcase and you might find CDs by Ween, BA Johnston, and maybe some council minutes documenting one of his shows:
“When performing live he sits on a kick drum which he pounds with his right foot. With his left foot he drops the bass along with an invention he calls the Tambourine-Machine (copyright Mayor McCa). With his two remaining appendages he rocks out on the electric guitar – consequently rhythmically jiggling another of his inventions, The Maraca Wrist-Band. To his right is his trusted sidekick, Casio Keyboard, which he tweaks for lo-fi beats and whistles. And when he’s not sucking or blowing down harmonicas, kazoos or any other sonic contraption, he is soulfully pushing air over his vocal chords and forming noises that portray his most deep-felt thoughts and emotions.”
Mayor McCa will be in earshot this Friday at Distortion (w/ The Black Bags) and Saturday at the Rose & Thistle (w/ Jill Porter + Liz Solo.)
