On January 25, Toronto’s Nine Mile kicked off their duo tour (that will eventually see them performing in Hawaii, the lucky dogs!) with another fantastic show at Whole Wheat n’ Honey Cafe.
The packed cafe was treated to some marvelously unusual stories and sounds – from D’Ari’s limitless stories of Cambodian shit pigs and how he managed to evade a false drug trafficking charge, to Dave Tolley’s audience-created junkyard drumkit, it was one of those memorable “you had to be there” shows.

The Nine Mile Duo Tour becomes a Trio Tour with Dave, D’Ari, and the Junkyard Drumkit.
These days my camera is practically sleeping in a hotbed of paranormal activity. It’s becoming more and more apparent to me that there are some major phantoms floating around the Peace – first Jesus decided on Northern Canada for the site of his resurrection and now it seems John Lennon has too.
