So I told the gal I'm seeing I wanted to go to Ottawa for this. First question I was asked: "is there a night ranger cover playing? I started to laugh, she didn't. I'm really not sure if she's serious.

Were you serious?

Yes and no. I'd love to make a journey to Ottawa and see friends, plus she's originally from Montreal and keeps talking how we should go there this summer. Dates of the fest fit the time frame and since she listens to a lot of those bands, and if into it, then sure why not. Musically we're not in the same boat though.

I hear they just added DSO.  

Now who's going?

 Considering I won't drive 35 mins east to see them, that wouldn't sweeten the deal. But as mentioned, if Ana is actually into checking this out, I'd go. Otherwise, it'll be two weeks in Varennes.

also if you have to hire a lead guitar player in your Prince tribute band, you're not covering him right.   Sounds good though and really, can't dramatically expect anyone to pull off all of Prince's skills at once.

I'm listening to these guys (and have a 2-day ticket for the July 20/21 Toronto shows)

 

And going out to see The Lizards tomorrow night.

I love a good cover band (but, that's no surprise).

I'll pass on Nostaligia Fest though..haha

Well it's official: I'm oblivious to francophone sarcasm.

Excuse the hijack...

Here's the setlist

Cold Rain and Snow

Mama Tried

They Love Each Other

The Race Is On

Hard to Handle

Loose Lucy

Masters of War (Bob Dylan)

Beat It On Down the Line

Here Comes Sunshine

Big Iron (Marty Robbins cover)...I'd never heard this song before...

Casey Jones

Scarlet Begonias

Big Boy Pete (The Olympics cover)....

Dire Wolf

Weather Report Suite

Eyes of the World

China Doll

China Cat Sunflower

I Know You Rider

Rockin' Pneumonia and the Boogie Woogie Flu (Huey “Piano” Smith & The Clowns cover)

Great company. Highlights for me were the opening songs (Cold Rain, Mama Tried, TLEO)... and then Weather Report Suite into Eyes, China Doll, China Cat (which they had teased a couple times). Not bad for a Tuesday night ;)

I'm guessing that this will flop but as time turns elastic I continually find evidence that proves that I know nothing about the music business.  Maybe this festival will prove me right about being wrong, but I doubt it.

They’re doing it again this year.
