Tonight (Wednesday, Jan 27), Secret Society will be appearing on WHYY-TV's awesome music show On Canvas. If you are in the Philadelphia area, you can tune in on your teevee machine at 8 PM. Everyone else will be able to watch a stream from WHYY's website beginning Thursday. (UPDATE: Watch the full episode here.)
Previous episodes of On Canvas have featured performances by Terence Blanchard, Rufus Wainwright, Andrew Bird, and Lionel Loueke, so we are super-excited about being included. This show, part of the estimable Ars Nova Workshop, was taped on June 5 of last year at Philadelphia's International House, a few days after our return from our first-ever European Tour, so the Society is in fine fighting shape. I myself was sick like the dog, with a bad case of what may or may not have been H1N1 -- I narrowly avoided passing out at more than one point during the show -- but that doesn't seemed to have interfered with the band's performance at all.
Here is a sneak preview of "Transit":
