Elliott Brood - Canadian Indie Folk/Rock

Today I've been helping set up the stage and lighting for a show featuring Elliott Brood and The Acorn. I thought I'd take a minute to write about Elliott Brood.

EB is a three-piece band composed of Casey Laforet, Stephen Pitkin, and Mark Sasso. They've been favorites on Canadian college radio for some time, and have toured internationally. They've done shows with bands such as Wilco, The Black Crows, Corb Lund, Blue Rodeo, and Broken Social Scene. Last year, they were one of the nominees for Canada's Polaris Prize.

Here a video for one of their songs, "Oh Alberta":

Here they are before sound check. The band is having lunch at Mel's Diner:




Elliott Brood is currently playing an Atlantic Canadian tour, and they will spend most of next month in Australia. Check them out.
