 She stops by the Slice with J Blissette and Birch Barks, Aug. 5.

“it’s going well. We’re really well rehearsed now,” said Moore of her tour from Ottawa.

“Though it‘s hard to get people out when there’s so many festivals happening now,” she said.
“But it’s really exciting just to play music every night and meet so many awesome people.”

 She always enjoys playing Lethbridge.

“We played Attainable last time, in November and we’ve played the Electric Eye Music Festival a couple times and I played there in another band Switches. People are so supportive and audiences in Lethbridge are willing to come out and listen to music that is a little more different and more experimental music,” she continued adding she likes to experiment with her sound.

“I like to experiment in the context of a pop song though,“ she said.

Moore is still touring in support of her CD “Gaze.”
“It came out a year ago. Andy is moving to Montreal for a year, so I’m looking forward to concentrating on the technical side, the brain side and being able to focus on the creative side,” she said.
 There is a  $10 cover for the Aug. 5 show, which begins  at 9 p.m.
