Published Jan 06, 2012This week we've got tons of exclusive live performances for you to check out at Exclaim! TV. The three artists you can watch the week, each incredibly different from one another, are Edmonton's Ten Second Epic, Colorado's Slim Cessna's Auto Club and Toronto-via-New-Brunswick songstress Julie Doiron.
First up, pop punk goes acoustic with Ten Second Epic's session at Cardinal Skate Co. With the line-up narrowed down to just two members, the Edmonton, AB-based rockers started with "Better Off" from their recent album of the same name. They went on to deliver an acoustic rendition of their MMVA-nominated track "Life Times" from 2009's Hometown.
Taking things in a different direction, but filmed at the same location, were Slim Cessna's Auto Club. The band are seasoned vets in dark Americana, blending everything from country to blues to gospel. Showcasing their musicianship, the full band also went acoustic for a killer version of "No Doubt About It" from their 2011 record Unentitled. Finally, they dug into their back catalogue to give us an acoustic version of "This Is How We Do Things in the Country", which was originally on 2004's The Bloudy Tenent Truth Peace.
Finally, we've posted some more footage of Julie Doiron from October's first ever Bloor Ossington Folk Festival. See her outdoor performance of "Last Night" from 2004's Goodnight Nobody.
Be sure to keep checking back with Exclaim! TV for exclusive performances from a huge variety of artists as they pass through Toronto.
