Another Shot at some Big Money
Another year, another LIVE 88.5 Big Money Shot...another chance for $$$!
On May 20th 2011, Red Light Saints are back at the LIVE Lounge (128 York St.) to rock-out for the possibility of thousands of dollars in band support given out by LIVE 88.5 - Ottawa's Alternative Rock Station. It's been a busy and highly successful year for RLS, and we hope to keep that trend going by blowing the roof off this "band war".
This is the first of several rounds, and the performances will be released and judged on video, so this is a call to all Red Light Saints fans to come out an support the band, crowd the stage, sing along, wear your RLS gear...and generally go nuts, as only RLS fans can do.
Red Light Saints hit the stage after 11:00 p.m. Tickets are $8 at the door

Acoustix & Covers & Jams...Oh my!
So far, November and December have been a real "Roots" experience for RLS.
Winter has held a string of Acoustic performances, and some extremely long and experimental sets. Playing full nights with strange covers, improvisational jams and unplugged versions of Red Light Saints originals.
There have been some really talented special guests ( the Peat Brothers, Empress Nyringango/Metricks) joining RLS at venues like The Grand, D'Arcy's and the legendary Elmdale Tavern (...classic...awesome...).
Red Light Saints have more "Unplugged" performances coming soon...Check out the tour page for more details

QUOTES OF THE DAY:

Welcome to RedLightSaints.com!
This is the place to come for all things RLS.
We have a lot of things on the go right now, so where to start...Hmmm...
Your reading this, so obviously the new site is up. It's an ongoing piece of work, and we'll be building on it from here, but roam around and check it out...There's lots of great stuff to sink your head into...so go nuts!
After many late nights, frayed fingers and little plastic cups of brandy, the new E.P is almost done. Check out the "featured track" to get a little taste of what we've been working on. We will be changing this song periodically, so stay tuned! We are still in the manufacturing stage. Check back with us in a couple weeks and the album will be titled, accompanied by some sweet artwork and will be ready for purchase.

We've managed to line up some great shows through the summer and into the fall, so come check us out. We're opening for Canadian rock legends HELIX at the Ottawa Super Ex this year AND we're heading down to Peterborough in the fall. Check out the TOUR page for more upcoming shows...
Red Light Saints have been messin' with their already messed up sound, going in some new directions...left turns, special guests, B-sides and (gasp) a cover song, so there will be a few surprises and additions. And of course we'll be "throwing down old school" as well, so you can come prepared to see a rip-roaring, sweat fuelled show with all the great RLS songs that you and your Mom have come to love.
Oh, and we have a big announcement on the way as well...it's kinda a big deal...but we'll sit on that one for now ;) - Don't wanna blow it all in one shot, do we... No one likes that!
So check back frequently...Stuff changes quick 'round here.
ThanX ...Love and Respect to All!
...Sinners & Songwriters,
Red Light Saints
