Published Jul 11, 2011In the past few weeks, Exclaim! TV has been busy, and if you aren't up to date, you're missing out. There is a bundle of exclusive performances, and quite a few interviews to boot, so check them out.
First up is a video questionnaire from the Sled Island festival in Calgary. In part one see members of Buzzcocks (pictured), Sword, Blonde Redhead, Bison B.C. and Man Man reveal some personal anecdotes to Sam Sutherland for our bemused enjoyment. Then check out part two, which features the likes of Thee Oh Sees and C'mon. From their dream dinner guest to their current obsession, we see a casual side of the musicians interviewed.
In case you missed it, the first performance video is from the Jägermeister & Exclaim! Annual BBQ Bash during North by Northeast. Toronto-based pop punks the Artist Life played an passionate acoustic rendition of "Sleep So Sound" from their Let's Start a Riot EP, while Monster Truck tore through their classic-rock-infused track "Sweet Mountain River." On top of that, Jersey legends Bouncing Souls performed a typically rousing and accordion-filled rendition of "The Pizza Song." What was one of the most anticipated performances of the night provided a truly enjoyable experience, and the track is sure to leaving you bopping.
Next, we have Maylee Todd and her Pegwee Power, who took a little visit to the Exclaim! office and performed a funky new track, "Hieroglyphic Love Letter," live on the upper deck. The performance is followed by a interview, in which Todd reveals her upcoming plans and future album with the Pegwee Power.
And finally, live from the cramped Exclaim! basement archives, comes a performance by Chris Levoir of the Mark Inside, performing an unplugged and mellow rendition of "The Bottom Line." The Whitby, ON native answers some questions following the performance and reveals how he spoils himself and who his dream dinner guests are.
Watch all of the mentioned videos and many more exclusive interviews and performances over at the Exclaim! TV section.
