August 14, 2012 with Nicole Allie and live performance by French Method

I first became aware of Nicole as the girl who always wore a homemade “I Love Jay Ferguson” t-shirt to every Sloan concert in the 90s. Years later I got to know her when she was the bass player in New Grenada.  This night she brought lots of great indie and punk records and debuted her solo project, French Method, with a live set. Eddie Baranek backed her up on farfisa through a wah pedal and Ben Lucket played drums. You can listen to both the DJ set and the French Method live set below!
