...thanks for the insight....

I actually put together the list b/c I'm doing a radio show next week of all the great shows that have come through T.O. and the vicinity this year... if anyone has any live recordings from these shows or others that I missed (like JJ Cale, SCI, Scofield, Culture, Herbie Hancock) let me know....

I have seen some amazing music this year and of course this summer! So much I do not know if I can name them all.

Highlights from the summer are the 3 festivals I went to Bonnaroo, The Grey Fox Bluegrass Fest and Alpine baby! Also hit up Some phatty Gouda, Phil, Trey and moe. There is a never ending supply of music close by or a couple hours drive away!

I am in Santa Barbara California right now and seeing Zuvuya, a Michael Travis side project tomorrow night!! Friday night Yonder Mountain is playing here...came at just the right time.

Hey Mary, how was the Low show? Went to Dylan on friday night and missed them and missed them saturday because I went away. What night did you go and how was the show? I caught them during the pub Crawl at Clintons. Been lovin' the low for a long time.

I have the lLintons show and last summer's Molson show if you are interested.

Freak Freely!

Hey thanks to you and Puddles for the offers...

The LOTL show was great.... tickets were $18 but I had guest list so that was OK... went after the Sloan/Oasis show. Was going to go to the Horseshoe after that b/c Soundtrack of Our Lives was playing there... ended up friends of mine went to the Horseshoe and the Oasis guys were there watching the show - surrounded by a ring of bodyguards. Apparently they are surpisingly nice (and very short) and talked soccer with my drunken friends who stumbled past the burly guards.

LOTL show was good to see though... they played tons of old faves... all the ones I wanted to hear from "Shakespear my butt"... I believe (?!) Rosey and Grey was the last tune. All in all a fine eve. Good times, good people....

Much better seeing them live again rather than hearing their live album they released... wasn't the biggest fan of that.
