The Doomtree: Wings & Teeth Tour 2010- The Second Coming Of Dessa & Her Fired Up Holy Men!

On A Dark November Rainy Evening ......
A Tour Van Pulled Into Montreal. Out Of This Old Fashioned System Of Delivering Music To The Masses Emerged

The Doomtree: Wings & Teeth Tour 2010

I am bursting at the seams to share!  Enjoy and take pleasure:)

To Begin With A Very Pretty Great Video from Lazerbeak- Dream Team

Lazerbeak "Dream Team" Music Video from Doomtree Records on Vimeo.

This past summer my marvelous man & I became curious and somehow knew we needed to go see an artist performing at the Montreal Jazz Festival. Her name is Dessa.

It was such a great show, really strong performance and she was so thrilled to be here and performing and she drew a really great big crowd. Awesome for her first show ever in Montreal.

Dessa is part of a Hip Hop collective from Minneapolis called Doomtree. They bring "Do It Yourself" to a supersede yourself level.

I am going to post a few videos here because I can't help but gush and swoon over Dessa and the other crazy talented, committed artists she has created music and a record label with, and has headed out on the road with.

My head is swirling and twirling still basking in the energy of their show last night.

Now stepping back to the summertime. After Dessa's most incredible show at the Montreal Jazz Festival, we quickly walked ourselves through the summer evening crowds to the Jazz Festival Store to purchase Dessa's CD. Well we scoured the store for a very very very long time trying to find her CD and to our Dessa loving hearts were broken just a little bit when we discovered her CDs were not at the store. So sad for us.

My marvelous man makes his way in this world spinning around in the music industry and he sent Dessa or the label and email introducing himself as well as telling them about his activities here in Canada and seeing if they were working on Canadian distribution for their music.

And well life gets busy and all that stuff and we never heard back. So our lives went on spinning.

Now stepping forward and back a few weeks I discovered Dessa was once again coming to Montreal! This time with her fellow label mates - and what I just knew would be a great tour of an awesome collective.

So enter the nagging wife! I think the past week I ask my hubby if we were going at least 5 or 6 times a day. I was pestering him to see if such n such wanted to go with us. My marvelous man has an incredibly demanding schedule and deadlines to meet so even though it would seem we could see all the shows we want - well the work of music industry makes it difficult to attend the shows we want when we want. I was being a real bratty, naggy wifey! My poor saint of a husband.

I just knew we had to be there.

And how life surprises.

Of course yesterday and for me in general Tuesdays are my super crazy days. I left the house yesterday at 11am (after already being out to do some morning errands) and didn't get home until 1:30 am.

When I left I was a little saddened (well really saddened) because I thought that we were going to miss the Dessa show because my marvelous man was just too busy with the a major major deadline that cropped and he had to met.

I hadn't even chatted with my marvelous man all day, we were both so busy we didn't get a chance. Last night, by chance he was picking me up after my shift and was going to get me to my night class so I could get there on time.

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

When I jumped in the car my marvelous man said "Great News honey, I have a surprise for you, we are going to go to Dessa!" I was so excited I couldn't believe what I was hearing.

I have married truly the most marvelous man!

So after my class we went and saw one of the best shows I have ever seen.

The energy was super high, super enthusiastic and super happy!

Everyone who was there knew the words and were up close to the stage. How refreshing to not see the typical "too cool for school" types standing in the back of the room being stand offish and aloof. The epitome of uncool!

Everyone such strong performers and the show was really tight and flowed together but was also spontaneous.

Dessa is such an enchanting performer. She is strong holds nothing back yet isn't aggressive or misses a beat!

This show was cool superseded!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My marvelous man and I had an incredibly great time. I bought 4 Cds and a great Wings & Teeth Tour Tee!

Enjoy the videos from the show recorded unprofessional low grade on my marvelous man's Blackberry!

And now to the show!

The Finale!

Yeah I am starting with the truly Amen Holy Finale Featuring- Sims, P.O.S., Dessa, Cecil Otter & Lazerbeek.

Dessa & Sims
