The last time Odds played Portland was a long time ago in the Rose Garden. We may have violated the noise level bylaws that night and it was probably a bad idea to book us in an outdoor rose garden at that stage of our maturity. Promises broken in the Rose Garden. Now we are seasoned vets who understand the perfect sound pressure levels for ultimate audience enjoyment. Technology has advanced so much that we can pinpoint the exact decibel readings, delicious beer amounts and melodic intervals to make the human aura radiate the ultimate high chi. Are we speaking your language Portland? We are collaborating with The Hawthorne Theatre on the exact harmonic variables to achieve convergence. Last time Craig was there with the Steven Page Trio, reports say, the roof pretty much came off the venue. We are heading to you to get some of that action and, with Steven by our side, we will all explode in just the right way.
We’re very excited about our first gig stateside in a while. It’s at “the Crocodile” on Sept 7, in our sister city Seattle, WA too. As much as all the hoopla has been about “We the Northey” [sic] and the glorious victory by the Toronto Raptors bringing Canada together ...we have as much affection for our Seattle Supersonics. They WILL be back. From Lenny Wilkins, Gus Williams and Gary Payton to the rookie of the year performance of a 19 year old Kevin Durant we stand up for the loud and fast legacy of Seattle. What rock n rollers don’t love a team named the Sonics. The Sonics were also one of the greatest rock bands ever. Strychnine, Have Love Will Travel, the Witch… Crank them up and prepare for us Odds, accompanying our brother in rock, Steven Page, as we prepare to bring our version the good times sonic vibe to the home that made it in the first place. We grew up 3 hours away from glory and now we will be right on time.
Incorporated in 1905, as the Police Village of Westboro, this area of Ottawa was originally conceived as a place for outdoor fun and rock n roll. The town founders have been planning the #WestboroFUSE Street Festival for 114 years. The original proclamation read “On August 17, 2019 a band from the west called “Odds” shall arrive in Westboro Village and light the Fuse Festival and provide the happy people with a day of rock n roll fun.” We shall not disappoint the founders nor the people. It is written!
See you on the Main Stage at Richmond and Churchill on August 17th!
👉 RSVP to the Facebook Event now for full details. Our show (and the entire festival) is 100% free for you to attend. Bring your friends and family down for great bands, street performers, cool shops, kids entertainment, summer patios, and more.
London Ontario sits along the Thames River which is the longest river in the world. It begins somewhere near Cheltenham in England and winds its way east to the estuary past Canvey Island (the home of Dr Feelgood) and into the ocean where it then heads south and then west towards North America. It is very very wide at this point. It gets narrow again when it hits Quebec and then makes it’s way to London Ontario where it is finally home. This is why they call it Home County. To celebrate the Thames and it’s incredible rock ‘n roll journey we will journey to the “Home County Arts and Music Festival” July 19-21 in London Ontario. There will be a river of notes and we will be your Dr. Feelgood. Come out and enjoy.
