Review and photos - Nightwood at The Boat, Toronto, April 1 2010

- text by eugene osudar/photos by Amber Anne Dawkins every time i write it's as if this is the last thing i will ever write in my life My Life is a temporary beauty. a blip kiss in time/ so this isn't puke this isn t vomiting this isn't typing ain't no hyping this isn't pimping my soul this type/type/type,writing is deeper than all oceans and deeper than your swirling, (hypnotizing) beautifully brown, blue, green, black eyes deeper than your rock n roll soul and if you're punk really punk deeper than your DIY heart. cheyenne takes photos sometimes for guttersnipe and she dances and she said something to me last night she wants a singer to sing a song like it's the last song they will ever sing., that's the way i like every song played and performed like it's the last. and this word and that emotion and that dance will be my last. or not. but it could be. so i'm living it and loving it and believing it will be my last and i love you. musician. dancer. music lover. Jeremy plays drums for Parlovr and that !band! and he plays drums like every beat will be his last! That's why I Love the way he plays and why i love Parlovr. they believe in The Love. and The Perfect Kiss. of their music. and i'm open. my heart is always open to The Perfect Kiss. The Love. so when i heard Jeremy of Parlovr was playing The Boat on April 1st with a band i didn't even myspace Nightwood, i knew. i had to be there. www.myspace.com/nightwoodband and to see and feel Jeremy's smile the light from within when he recognized me that's a beautiful thing. and he thanked me for writing the truth about Parlovr in a guttersnipenews review in 35 minutes and 8 songs Nightwood destroyed me. the !dancing! the drumming is tribal the vocals are gutterelle the beat and words and performance throbs. rubs you raw. and dances you into the other worlds of your uniqueness. your exquisite you(ness) a newness every time you breathe the poetic now of the moment. just take off. "and make me like it. take me home and help me spike it." Alex Chilton. and the 40 or so who stuck around The Boat in Kensington Market for their set. experienced the last great songs they'll hear and feel and throb to until they see another band as passionate as Nightwood. and yes, The Boat's decor is that of a boat. i liked the club. it's small. and that's the kinda cool place you want to see a band that smokes and sizzles. small and immediate and a place where you sail oceans. deep deep oceans. heavy magic is coming man timer johnny bright girls of summer sunken mountains island of forgetfulness skeleton crew gretta at a window Amber Goodwyn Erin Ross Jeremy MacCuish are Nightwood. are beautiful. are passionate. are punk.
