[MUSIC] I’ve never been to that great northern land where people say “aboot” and “eh?” But I have heard the tremolo and wail of the Canadian Common Loon. It’s a haunting, eerie sound that’s often described as “insane laughter.” So what exactly do four singer/songwriter chicks from Canada sound like? “We’re all about big voices, four-part harmony, great songs, dorky banter and big attitude,” says Erin Smith who, along with Janine Stoll, Melissa McClelland and Lisa Winn, comprise Ladybird Sideshow (pictured left). Right, so less eerie. Got it. Actually, the Ladybird Sideshow is a sort of smorgasbord of musical feminine wizardry: “Beautiful harmonies, heart-wrenching lullabies, driving rock tunes, cabaret oddities, country-tinged warbles, rippin’ funk, and everything in between,” states their website. Or as one fan put, “…the Ladybirds can really get inside the music of your life, no matter what you’re usually into. And once they’re there, you don’t ever want them too far away. I can’t wait to see what they’ve got in store.” Funny how anticipation translates so well in other languages. Even Canadian. For info, call 874-1131.
