November / December Phog Event Listings

Behind Sapphire is going to make their December 1st show (with The Elwins) after a much-publicized detaining in China while on tour…

When I heard that members of the band were being held in a Chinese prison…I was beyond concerned, but within days of finding out, the news changed for the better. Click here for the full story of the 10 days spent in detention…and then bring your butts out to their show on Thursday, December 1st to give the warm Windsor welcome to a fellow Canuck happy to be on Canadian soil…playing their first gig in our town.

December 2nd…a Friday…we have the Juno-nominated D-Sisive bringing some killer hip-hop to Phog along with the much-loved Windsor DJ…dstruct.o playing in support. This will be his second time at Phog…and we’re super excited to have him back with his tour-mate, CityReal.

From D-Sisive’s CBC Radio 3 profile:
“D-Sisive, a prolific Canadian rapper, best known for his Juno Award-nominated EP The Book, his hit single “Nobody With A Notepad” (for which D-Sisive and collaborator Muneshine won SOCAN’s fourth annual ECHO Songwriting Prize) and his 2009 Polaris Music Prize-nominated album Let the Children Die (which was launched by the success of “Nobody With A Notepad”).

D-Sisive first emerged in the late 1990s with a number of independent singles which were popular in the Toronto hip hop scene, but took a six-year break from performing and writing due to a battle with depression following his mother’s death in 2001 and father’s death in 2007. The death of his mother inspired him to release the EP J.A.C., named after her, while D-Sisive’s response to losing his parents is heavily documented on releases such as The Book and Let the Children Die. Despite this absence, his talents were showcased on DJ Format’s popular 2005 album If You Can’t Join ‘Em… Beat ‘Em, and D-Sisive performed alongside fellow Canadian rapper Abdominal in the music video for DJ Format’s hit single ‘3 Feet Deep’. Further, a collection of recordings from the early period of D-Sisive’s career has been released on a widely available bootleg entitled Yesterday. The Mixtape.”
