Well that was a summer for the books!  One solid tour from the middle of June until the end of September, dense with inspiring collaborations, intoxicating audiences, and seemingly impossible itineraries!       An honour to share the stage with Bruce Molsky at Summerfolk before we boarded for our ScandalousNavia tour, a chance [...]

  It would be impossible to sum up the glory of this tour in to one post without bashing away on this keyboard until far after the next looming soundcheck.  But it’s safe to say it has been the tour of a lifetime!  41 days in, and going strong! For more detailed accounts- check out our [...]

2013 has been a wilder ride then I ever expected, and 2014 promises to be exponentially gonglier!   Announcements imminent for a vinyl release, a return to Europe, and the most exciting festival season yet for the Opposites! ’13 finished up with some flattering shout-outs on number best-albums-of-2013 lists, by CKUA, Baba’s Picks, the Indie Blender, and [...]

Well folks, it’s been a long run! Newfoundland, Germany, Sweden, Copenhagen, London,  Helsinki, and then landing home in Toronto just in time to find out that our new album won the Canadian Folk Music Awards for “Pushing the Boundaries” as well as “Instrumental Group of the Year”!  What a wonderful welcome home.  Our drummer and band-dad, [...]

Although it seems strange to say, the new album has been charting throughout Canada this summer, and bringing home some rather ravenous reviews!   In my opinion, the fact that some of the articles completely contradict each other, is at least one sign that we’re doing something right! Here are some of snips and snoops, [...]

Summurderous meanderings

http://theoppositeofeverything.com/site/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/photo4-copy.jpg August 23, 2013

  What a summer it’s been!  The Opposites wrangled ourselves from sea to shining sea and back again over 40 days of nonsense, cacophony, and the entire Frank Zappa discography.   On day 41, by some serendiculous stroke of kismet, I had just enough time off to fit in a quick 23-day tour  opening for/playing in Oliver [...]

However, I DO support any clever ruse to trick more folks into listening to our freaky sounds! It’s a proper pleasure to proclaim that our track Auctioneering Everything [...]
