'Call me in the Afternoon'

Last night I saw Half Moon Run for the second time this summer. Dean told me about these guys a year ago and we've been listening to there music regularly ever since. A few months ago, Dean was reading up on the band and recognized the name of the lead singer, Devon Portielje, so he did a search through his inbox and realized that Devon, who's from Ottawa, was a former music student from his guitar teaching days. We caught up with Devon after his gig at Bluesfest and he told us about the gigs he and his band have lined up right through to March 2014. They seem to be gaining a following in Europe and it's starting to take off over here too. It's nice to see real raw talent gain success, and it's also pretty cool that Dean sorta helped him learn what he knows. 
Half Moon Run was on the bill for a show yesterday which is sending all proceeds to the Red Cross' relief fund in Lac-M├ęgantic. It was awesome - I can't say enough about these guys.
