Baby FuzZ

TONIGHT * 10pm * No Cover
w/ Daveferatu Band & Huffdaddy (Colten of Time Cat)

“My career highlight, for sure, has to be when Queen performed a song I wrote live.” - Sterling Fox (Baby FuzZ)

Baby FuzZ, the latest creation of songwriter Sterling Fox, is a bizarre glam rock alter ego and band with a rotating cast of contributors and members. Baby FuzZ's music fuses a number of styles from rock and roll to soul to punk. Described as “one of the most slept on acts in music” by Hillydilly, Baby FuzZ released a litany of brilliant singles in 2018 and dropped a debut album Plastic Paradise in March 2019. Drawing comparisons to artists such as Elton John, Ezra Furman, and Yoke Lore, Baby FuzZ has introduced an eclectic sound yet remains rooted in classic songwriting. In the past, Fox, the frontman of Baby FuzZ, produced “Video Games” by Lana Del Rey and has written for the likes of Madonna, Britney Spears, and Avicii, so there is a decidedly surreal pop sensibility to the project. With a charmingly diy ethos and an eccentric self produced album, Baby FuzZ just might be the strange new arrival the earth needs.

Hiya, so I did this live session in Toronto with the band a few months back for Ones To Watch. Check it out

Baby FuzZ - “Shadowland” [Live + Interview] | Northside Sessions

TONIGHT w/ Daveferatu Band & Huffdaddy (Colten of Time Cat) 10pm * No Cover!

Baby FuzZ is without a doubt one of the most slept acts in the Canadian music scene, so it was our honor to have the wholly unique character perform his single “Shadowland” from his debut album ‘Plastic Paradise.’ Evoking comparisons to the quietly powerful ballads of of Elton John, it comes as no surprise that before stepping into the limelight, Baby FuzZ wrote for the likes of Lana Del Rey, Madonna, and Britney Spears.

75 Years Ago, One of the Best Dance Routines Ever Was Filmed, Unrehearsed on the First Take

Unbelievable!

twistedsifter.com Fred Astaire said it was ‘the greatest dancing he had ever seen on film’

We love our neighbors @ The Square Scullery!

We knew one of our biggest obstacles with opening a Ghost Restaurant instead of a traditional brick & mortar would be our lack of seating for our customers. Through the past couple weeks we have worked to put together a cute little patio in front of our entrance, and are starting to plan monthly events & pairings utilizing the American Legion's hall, which is connected to our kitchen.
.
In turn we have also cultivated relationships with our fellow super awesome small business neighbors in Highland Square! Did you know that you're also more than welcome to enjoy your Square food at Annabell's as well as The Highland Tavern? We're also actively working behind the scenes to provide an app for Square Scullery orders to be placed at either location with by foot delivery to you on select nights!
.
Stay tuned, we'll have more to come there, but know that we are continuously looking for ways to improve, grow and connect. ❤️ #highlandsquare #smallbusiness #supportlocal #squarescullery #annabells #highlandtavern #squareneighbors #heyakron #everydayimbrusseling #madefromscratch #akroneats #supportsmallbusiness @ The Square Scullery

Support our neighborhood Farmers’ Market before it’s gone!

Have you ever treasured something in your community, only to be devastated when it closed up shop for one reason or another?

Over the years, I've longed for and reminisced about Yocono's, Dodie's, and can now add Crest Bakery to my list.

Sure, I patronized these places, but had I known they were on the brink of closing, would I have increased the frequency of my visits?
Probably, if I didn't want to see them go.

Heads up: Countryside Farmers' Market at Highland Square is one of these places. It's seen by many as an asset to the community, but the hard reality is that it is struggling. Farmers unload truckloads of produce each week, only to pack it all back up and drive it home, unsold.
The customer count and sales are not what they need to be to make it worth it for the farmers and food producers to continue to invest their time and energy into this market.

This year is a bit of a test case: if Highland Square and the surrounding community shows up and proves to the vendors that this market is worth their time, we will return. If the sales continue to decline and the crowd continues to grow more sparse, my favorite little neighborhood market will not exist anymore.

If you're a person who would think nostalgically about the Highland Square market and "what a shame it is that it's gone," maybe you can prioritize it one of these Thursday evenings, and help a community gem come back next year.

Opening day is THIS THURSDAY from 4-7pm at Will Christy Park (the triangle park) located at 1175 W Exchange Street...in case you are looking for something wonderful to do.
