The Elwins - "Help A Bro Out (M-O-V-E-M-B-E-R)"

It's only one more week to go for those of you who have been participating in Movember to raise awareness for men's health, specially prostate cancer. While some people keep it simple and grow a tiny bit of moustache, others go extreme with their impressive 18th century inspired glorious facial hair.

Have you ever recognized a person by looking at his moustache? Last Thursday I was at Piston, catching up with a friend of mine,  sitting in the booth and delighting in the good old day tunes like Led Zeppelin. Then a couple of guys with amazing moustache walked in the back of the bar, dropping off their gear for the gig of the night. Whenever they passed by our booth, I was ogling their moustache.

The very next day, Ben Caplan, Halifax based singer songwriter with distinct big beard, posted this video on Facebook.

The moment that I saw four guys in the video, my eyes opened as widely as possible, espying their remarkable facial hair. " OMG, that's the guys from Thursday night." What a coincidence, right? After further looking into the band information, I also found out that they will be opening for Paperlions and the Love Machine for Super special Christmas show by Exclaim! at the El Mocambo on December 10th. 

I said to myself that this is some sort of sign that I should be in touch with the band... Guess what!? Q &A session with the Elwins coming up very shortly. Meanwhile enjoy the video and donate what you can. stay tuned.
