About The PepTides:

They’re a well-oiled Where’s Waldo? Rube Goldberg machine of colourful lightening strewn with silk, soul and funk! They’re the Warhol painting you’ve never seen hanging on the bridge of a shimmering disco starship about to enter your atmosphere in rainbow warp drive. They are stardust. They are golden. There live shows are as bright and beaming as their outfits.

About Malak:

Malak may be a newcomer on the local scene, but her voice shows a maturity beyond her years. Raised in Egypt, she’d venture to Greece, Italy and Germany before the eventual move to Canada collecting the music of each region like road maps in a glove compartment. Malak has been raking in much acclaim usually by people who are simply blown away by the voice that rushes out of her. It's like ice on fire. That moment you first hear it is a kind of mix of elation and sadness because you realize you will never get to experience her for the first time again!

We'll follow that up with a few more 33 minute DJ sets starting at 2pm. 

At 4pm, you'll want to catch Arms of the Girl perform songs from their awesome Paper-Copper-Steel EP. This 4 piece band has been getting alot of airplay on both CKCU, CHUO and college radio. Super fun and sure to fill the store with fans! Get there early! 

Finally, The Record Centre will be sharing a portion of all record and vintage audio sales that day to donate to the cause so drop in and do some shopping!

Girls to the Front - Pat Moore, Malak & Julie Corrigan

Girls to the Front Songwriters Circle
Featuring Pat Moore & Malak
Monday January 16, 2017
no cover, PWYC event

Showcasing women in music from Ottawa and beyond each month performing in the round at Irene's Pub, 885 Bank St. Hosted by Julie Corrigan Sponsored by CKCU 93.1 FM, Red Leaf Music, and Ottawa Gig Posters

Pat Moore:

Pat Moore’s voice has a warm and expressive quality, as perfectly suited to a rich ballad, as it is to an up-tempo power song. She moves easily from the storytelling of the singer/songwriter genre, to the lonesome sound of traditional country and bluegrass. Born and raised in Ottawa, Ontario, she grew up in a house filled with music, from show tunes to Peter, Paul, & Mary, and Gordon Lightfoot; and later jazz masters like Ella Fitzgerald and Ray Charles to bluegrass legends like Bill Monroe, and Flatt and Scruggs. As a young girl she would sing harmonies with her sisters while doing the supper dishes – songs from the Momas and Papas, and Simon and Garfunkel. 


Ottawa Showbox calls Malak 'one of the most powerful and beautiful voices in town'. US born, Egypt raised, and now calling Ottawa home, Malak was immersed in diverse musical influences from a young age. Since winning multiple vocal competitions throughout Egypt and Europe, including Greece, Germany and Italy, Malak has turned her youthful passion for music into a flourishing music career. At 21, Malak is completing a degree in music performance and songwriting at Carleton University and has garnered many accolades for her songwriting and musicianship.
