What's going on?

Head East, young peeps! 

We're headed east the the lovely Linsmore Tavern for a full night of fun.
We will be digging deep into our set list to bring you a full night of rock - get ready to hear some of your favourites, as well as a whole bunch of new stuff we're excited to debut.

Get all the details on our show page.

If you haven't been to the Linsmore yet you're in for a treat - these guys have done a lot for the indie music scene over the past year and have really turned the bar into a music destination.

See you at the show!

We're taking a bit of a break here at WWWY Musicology Productions , Ltd.

David is off in Australia or some other made up place as part of his Professor Doctor training, Chris, Josh and Ben are puttering around the city and working on things that let us buy new gear. Keep your eyes peeled over the next couple of months for some more excitement.

Until then, enjoy what we have on our music page and we'll have some great news in the next while!


“I love your music! It really touched me and I kept saying, ‘I can’t believe this band isn’t being played on the radio and a record label hasn’t signed them up!’ “
