Published Jun 05, 2014Over the next two nights (June 5 and 6), Guelph's Kazoo! concert series (and annual festival) will be celebrating its eighth anniversary with a pair of shows. The Friday night bill promised that a "surprise guest" would be announced, and now this secret performer been revealed: reunited Canuck rockers Constantines.
The news was confirmed on the June 5 episode of Vish Khanna's Kreative Kontrol podcast (episode number 106, featuring Kazoo!'s Brad McInerney and Mike Deane). In the final moments of the podcast, we hear a conversation involving Khanna and the Constantines.
In the goofy skit, Khanna overhears the band practising, and when he asks what they're doing, the guys respond, "We're just getting ready for the show in Guelph on Friday."
They act aloof, but further questioning reveals that they will indeed be playing at James Gordon Outreach HQ at 32 Essex St. in Guelph. The podcast can be heard here (the Constantines comes on just after the 1:03:30 mark).
Learn more about these anniversary shows on Facebook. Other performers include Esther Grey, From a Shadowy Planet, and Start Something. Tickets are $22.50 (including taxes and charges) and can be purchased at TicketBreak.
Constantines have a few reunion dates booked for the coming months. See their schedule here.
