Lister's Sunday Music Nights has ended... Check out the Live Page for other dates.


Give it a word and make it what you heard: well the word is Sunday Night New Music and that's exactly what we did. What a long, strange onion bhaji-filled trip it's been…

Many thanks to the Euge for letting us invade his club each week for the past five months.

We started in the dead of winter with an idea and by spring a monster was born, otherwise known as the Mike, Stu, Marco, Steve, Janie, Jimmy Law, A.D, Dana, Simon, Niblet, Chris,Stoner, Sue, Courtney, Matt, Leah, Jess, Mari, Sebastien, Julie-Anne, Kweakui, Pringles Steve, Tall Bill, Big Jeezus Truck, GordonGattrell, Juniper, Nectar, Eric Eggleston, Circuit, Sawdogs, Sydney's Moon, Marty Sobb and the Mob, Polytones, Pilate, Thirteen, Sarah Sedgeman, Pigeon Hole, Psyphon, Loose Colours, Loud Love, and Prototype show.

Marco would like to personally thank all the lovely and talented girls who almost agreed to getting the money shot down on tape…rest assured he will keep on trying, oh yes, oh yes…

Stu would like to thank Guiness for making his head hurt on Monday morning…

Mike would like to thank the Ottawa Valley Bowling league for their merch…

Mike and Stu would like to thank Michelle for the late night drives back to the Glebe…

Steve would like to thank the gods of groovitude for all that colon vibrating low end…

Marco would like to thank Killer Kool-Aids and Sex-on-Saturn for assisting him with his charming tactics (you know who you are ...)

Hey class it's been fun, we've learned a lot, like not to let Stu behind the drums or Marcus out from behind the drum set, but more importantly that a music community starts one fan at a time.

Thanks again to our hardcore pop-head fans, the true and luminous J-Ro for all the hard work including her wonderful camera work, the Zaphod's staff and sound crew, and all the artists that came out to share the stage with us. Peace, faith, love, and the rest of the fun stuff…into the great wide open, one and all.

LISTER will performs weekly, joined by a long list of special guests from the Ottawa music scene to make music and have fun.

September/2000. The single "So Real", is included on the MOLSON INDIEBLAST compilation and on the CLEARNET CD, "A Little Bit Of Canada", available through and the Clearnet PERKS Program. Towards the latter part of 2000 LISTER performed showcases at the famed VIPER ROOM in Los Angeles. Check out their website at

You may remember Janie Rocks, as BINGO JET INTERNATIONAL'S lovely and talented hostess-with-the-mostes. Recently Janie started JANIE ROCKS PRODUCTIONS and has produced and promoted a wide variety of events, including the XPRESS UNDIE AWARDS, CLARKNOVA, GRAPES OF WRATH, NECTAR, and many more. Janie Rocks is the ultimate party-girl; chic, well dressed, blonde, well…an all around hottie! You too can be a socialite, just by being at her parties!

ZAPHOD BEEBLEBROX continues its tradition of providing fine entertainment, presenting new music and thinking up different creative ways to ultimately get Ottawans to loosen up and get stinky! ZAPHOD's is where the musicians, the cognoscenti, the core of the happening class, the best of the drinking class hangs out.
