WOW !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well after my failed attempt at the CBC show I decided to get back on the horse and try again...this time with no tickets in hand and no hotel booked and a 4 hour roadie ahead of me.

So I checked in to the Holiday Inn and paid waaaaaay too much for a room and headed out to the Horseshoe in the hopes of a miracle. After about 40 minutes and starting to feel quite dejected I met 2 incredible girls and a great guy who were kind enough to bring me into their group and get me in the door. And once in there I couldn't believe what was happening. Mark my words I will probably never be able to see this band in a venue like that again, and to hear it on the day of the release of such a great album, to get to hear all of the songs off that album...it really was something special.

Along with getting in the door these girls were able to get me backstage access after the show and I had the pleasure to hang out with them, drink some more Labatt 50's and chill out with some really great people. Gord S was an absolute class act and a hell of a great guy.

Like I said it was one of those nights that you just won't be forgetting any time soon. It was great to see BigA again and to meet TLB (Tony) you're both really solid guys. Hope to run into you again soon.

Nice picks TLB.
Too bad you had to be so close. :)
I really like the drums with the light showing through.

Thanks Dan.

I've got two cams edited, and may wait to add another... but I may get tired of waiting and put it out as a two cam DVD.

(And after watching what I posted, I see that I only posted a single angle sample... doh!)

2 cams is more than ample chris...with so many shows, don't worry about being a perfectionist on every single one! we're all glad to get whatever you release, so don't kill yerself with making more work.
