Gypsophilia Film Fest Screenings
The Atlantic film Festival is coming up (Sept 16-25) and Gypsophilia has connections with three films being shown.  On Sept 17 Chaz Thorne's film Whirligig is screening at the Atlantic Gala. Gypsophilia played the music for the film's soundtrack which was composed by Darren Fung. It is a fantastic score which works really well with the band's style - we hope you can check it out!  Then on Sept 21 the CBC Atlantic Shorts Gala will feature two of our music videos - Hietzing / Battery Life by Scott Simpson and a beautiful stop-motion animation piece for Agricola & Sarah by Sydney Smith and Jason Levangie.

Where to eat when in St. John’s for the Junos
The band made it over to St. John's to play a showcase at the Junos this past weekend.  One of the toughest things about being on the road is finding good food and good coffee.  So for those of you also heading to Newfoundland for the Junos (or anytime really) here is Gypsophilia's recommended places to eat in St. John's: Hava Java: best coffee in the city and in fact some of the best espresso in the country(!) Folly: a relatively new and extremely delicious restaurant and by far the best place in the city for late night food, specializing in gourmet burgers and pizza. The Sprout: amazing vegetarian food. India Gate: delicious butter chicken and curries. The Classic Cafe and Velma's both offer homestyle traditional Newfoundland food, including giant toutens.
