Winter delivered a one-two punch a week ago - first, with a blast of Arctic air, and then a record-breaking snowfall. East Coasters New Love Underground managed to enjoy both highs, first in Quebec City on Valentine's, then in Ottawa a couple of days later for a show at Black Squirrel Books with locals Spell and Pith & The Parenchymas, who were one first. Here's Chris Love!

New Love Underground is usually two people: Mike Fong and Eliza Niemi. For this gig they doubled their staff, recruiting Erin on keyboards and vocals and John Lake on drums. Here's Erin and Eliza!

Spell finished things off with their slacker krautrock.
Rhythm section action!
Then it was time to fire up the sled dogs and head home.
