Aug 29 Women's Stage: Elizabeth Riley Band

We are very excited to be playing the Women's Stage this Saturday night as part of Capital Pride. It en plein air in front of City Hall, Marion Dewar Plaza. The show starts at 5pm and runs til 9 - we are the second band up, so I'm estimating maybe 5:30 or 5:45 we'll be embarking on our material - it's a shortish set, 25 minutes.

Stand up close to the stage to benefit from a limited time giveaway offer ;) - we recently made a demo CD and we're going to chuck a few into the crowd.

Also, of course, the topic of who will be wearing what is causing many pre-show conversations. I was going to wear my friend Wenna's cowboy hat, but when Carmel tried it on during a practice, we all agreed that it looks so excellent on her, SHE should wear the hat. However I am very much looking forward to finally wearing a funky pair of high heels that I bought two years ago at a now-defunct consignment store in Carleton Place (three sisters - it was soooo great). They are cowboy-ish in nature, that's all I'm gonna say.

What will we be playing - a mix of covers and originals:

Shame on You
Shady Grove
Redemption Day
Young Women to Old
Women's Stories
