cover 9 November 2009


strictly game, by the Harlem Shakes. these guys aren’t together anymore but we had a chance to tour with them this year and they were really inspiring. you should listen to their record “technicolour health” and also their guitarist’s todd’s project Arms. If you live in new york then you can do so by coming to his record release show at Piano’s on thursday which i’m also going to play a few songs at. (!!!!!!)

peace out of here,



What? What happened to the Harlem Shakes? I saw them on tour with you and really liked them!

I saw them with you on march 1st and 2nd. kinda. on the first someone got a little sick and couldn’t come. =(
I ended up getting their CD. it’s pretty tight!
but wait, why aren’t they together anymore? they’re brilliant! do tell!

i love how insanely low your voice is

Great cover! I just love their LP.
The show in New York at the beginning of this year with Born Ruffians/Shakes was fantastic as well .. three of my absolute favorite (favourite) bands on the bill.

Anyway, really wish I could come see your set, but everything at Pianos is 21+. Oh well. Have fun in the city!

(: you really tamed that beast of a song down… its sounds great in a different way,…too bad about the breakup i didnt ever see them like u lucky ppl… ):

Such a great song! One of my favorites.

And it’s a real shame they’re no longer together, but I’m sure they’ll be doing great things regardless.

I love how us Canadians say ‘colour’ v.s. ‘color’
Saw David walking along Queen street,.,. I should have said something >.>
Keep doing great things

that’s too bad that they broke up.. they were great when i saw them live with born ruffians and tpc- and i think dave was wearing the same shirt then that he is in this video.. nevertheless, great work as always :)

aw, that’s amazing. i really loved that song. i ended up trying to play something similar on my guitar but it’s not even close. but i guess i shouldn’t get ahead of myself, i just started playing. i really wish i could learn this version though!!
