Vancouver based rock band The Gay Nineties are in the middle of a great year.

 They enjoyed hanging out in Toronto for Canadian Music Week, which included playing a Music B.C.  showcase at the Rivoli which included Bend Sinister’s Dan Moxon and Hot Panda.

“ It was a wicked show,”  enthused Gay Nineties frontman Parker Bossley from Toronto, getting his entire band ( bassist Daniel Knowlton, drummer Malcolm Holt and keyboardist Bruce Ledingham) in on the interview.
They are currently enjoying their Liberal Guilt (their brand new CD) tour with Zerbin, which brings them to the Slice, May 25.

They are pleased with the new CD.
“We released in January, but worked on it all last year,” said Holt.
“ We were excited to do a full length album,” he continued.

 Bossley is even more excited about the two videos the band  filmed for the CDs first singles  “ Hold Your Fire” and “Letterman.”
“ For Hold Your Fire, we hired a professional dance choreographer,” he said adding they were influenced by psychedelic ’70s videos for their video.

 They just decided to have some fun on “Letterman,” though the song doesn’t have anything to do with the David Letterman show, they thought it would be fun to do a video poking fun at talk shows.


“We filmed one video with a  huge budget and the other with no budget, Bossley said.
 They are already thinking about new material.

“ We’re building on this CD, but we’re writing year round,” Bossley said noting they’ll take a couple weeks off in between tours to record new material with an eye to releasing it  in the late fall.

“We’ve got 12 days with Zerbin, so we”’re excited about that,” Ledingham said.

 They are excited about a busy summer which includes playing big music  festivals including  Rock Creek and X Fest.
“This summer is going to be a lot of fun,” Bossley said adding they are most looking forward to playing the Pemberton music festival and sharing the stage with musicians like the Black Keys, Will Smith, Weezer and a lot of other bigger names.

 They are excited to return to Lethbridge where they have a dedicated audience already. They promised, a fun, energetic show.
“ Let  your freak flag fly,” said  Holt.

“ Weirdos are definitely welcome,” Bossley added.
 There is a $10 cover for the show, which begins at 9 p.m., May 25.
