Van Leer Logo Anniversary UPDATE!

In August, the glorious triangular Lee Van Leer logo will celebrate its 28th anniversary. ~~  We ARE participating in a 5-band  Event to celebrate this occasion!
It will be held at Melange, 172 Main St. @ Gerrard St. E. on Saturday, September 7th. Start time: 7-ish p.m., but Van Leer will take the stage @ nine-ish for a 55-minute Showcase Set.  ~~  Why not in August? Bcuz  we are
on hiatus from live gigging while we lay down tracks for our long-awaited
SECOND CD, titled "Sawing Through Bone". When u finally see the cover
art, you'll be relieved that there's NO blood, gore or "creepy-ness" involved.
  Another reason for the September date: If we WAIT 'til AFTER Labour Day,
we feel that MORE of you will be able to attend. (Here's hoping -- please spread the word, thank you!)

TWO fine institutions gone "pfft!" this week:

1): Sat. nite karaoke @ Kwame's Fusion, 476 Cosburn Ave. has stopped, no fault of hostess Erika, who is EXCELLENT.  ~~
2): Regency Dental Hygiene Academy Inc., 481 University Ave., Suite 400...
stopped dead. Possibly true story: principal owner runs off w/ $$, plunging
biz into bankruptcy. For shame, for shame. Now I gotta find a new place for
my affordable thrice-yearly teeth cleaning. Maybe George Brown College?
We'll see. Current students, esp. 3rd Semester about-to-graduate ones, are in a tizzy, to say the least. I'll keep y'all up to date on this as I'm informed of
