Bloor Velvet — Concert on Theatre Marquee!

Robin Sharp, the director of our Blue Velvet shadowcast show, is the man responsible for blogTO's Toronto Portraits series profiling young local artists and musicians. He's now used his connections to round up an all-star band to perform the songs from Blue Velvet, live as part of the show. Calling themselves Anything That Moves, the band includes:

Carmen Elle (solo singer/songwriter, guitar and vocals for Donlands & Mortimer)

• Johnny Spence (keyboards for Donlands & Mortimer)

• Dorian Thornton (bassist for Spiral Beach)

• Jo Fallak (lead singer of Miss Scarlett)

Brandon Valdivia (drummer for Picastro)

• Katie Avery (violinist for Beneath the Ice)

Ryan G. Hinds (performance artist about town)

They're doing five full songs from the movie (Roy Orbison, etc.) as part of the show itself, plus a special set on the marquee of the Bloor Cinema (506 Bloor St. W.) at 7:00 on July 1st.
