Toronto pop collective The Hidden Cameras will be taking their upbeat sounds around the province of Ontario this fall, putting the finishing touches on a fine year spent touring the US, Canada and Europe behind their second album made in 2004.
This year also saw the release of a limited edition, double gatefold-sleeve 7" single from the Joel Gibb-led crew, featuring four demos from their upcoming Awoo album, due next year on Evil Evil in Canada and Rough Trade in the US and Europe. Don't expect to grab a copy at any of the band's upcoming Ontario dates, however, as the 2000 copies have all surely been snapped up since the single's June release.
You can likely hear some of those songs, however, at the following Hidden Cameras shows, including the band's five night stand with the Toronto Dance Theatre at the end of November:
October 27, Kingston, ON - Grad Club
October 28, Ottawa, ON - Barrymore's (w/Lesbians On Ecstasy)
October 29, Brantford, ON - Ford Plant (w/The Vermicious Knid)
November 2, Waterloo, ON - Starlight (w/Evan Gordon & The Salt Lick Kids)
November 3, Hamilton, ON - Casbah (w/The Ghost Is Dancing)
November 4, Guelph, ON - Vinyl (w/Jens Lekman)
November 22-26, Toronto, ON - Premiere Dance Theatre
