    I'd recommend checking out the Jakob Bro Trio on June 25th if you get the chance. Joey Baron is an amazing drummer! He has collaborated a lot with John Zorn. Check out the live album Bay of Rainbows on Spotify to give them a go - I think many of youz would like it.
  3. I'd be there if I could. If only it was the night before, would have been perfect!
  4. New album 'Stella Bella Strada' is a lot of fun. It's up now on Spotify. I just checked his tourdates page and noticed a slew of new dates added. Of interest to Velvet, if no one else, there will be an album release show at Lula Lounge in Toronto the day after the Phish show in Toronto. https://www.kevinbreit.com/engagements No Montreal shows. 😞
  5. I'll be there rain or shine, cancellation or no cancellation. The show must go on!!
  6. Saw Doug Paisley last night at Quai Des Brumes in Montreal. Wonderful mellow show by an outstanding musician. It was him and his long time collaborator Chuck Erlichman, vocals and two acoustic guitars. Jenny Whiteley and Joey Wright opened -- not sure if that's the case in Ottawa or not. Either way, highly recommended. https://www.dougpaisley.com/ https://www1.ticketmaster.ca/doug-paisley-ottawa-ontario-03-30-2019/event/3100554FB6B53107?dma_id=522&artistid=1496495&majorcatid=10001&minorcatid=2

    Another lineup to make you feel old!
  8. True, better lineup than Blues Fest, but I will have no problem giving this one a pass.
  9. Radio Canada is giving away 108,000 records. http://www.cbc.radio-canada.ca/en/explore/french-services/calls-for-interest/

The outing will be presented by Sirius XM’s JamOn, and each evening will feature a moe. set, a Blues Traveler set and a third, collaborative set featuring both bands.

The tour will kick off on July 11 in Farmingville, NY, and make stops in major markets like Boston, Nashville and Atlanta before closing out on Aug. 11 in Austin, TX.

  11. New article from the McGill U website about alumni Donna Grantis from 3rdEyeGirl. http://mcgillnews.mcgill.ca/s/1762/news/interior.aspx?sid=1762&gid=2&pgid=2050
  12. The guys is a prolific songwriter, not all of it is gold, but I like how his music has progressed in recent years. I thought Prisoner was a great album. Both Prisoner and the b-sides album have a handful of beautifully crafted songs that I love. I'm not crazy about the new song with John Mayer on it, but the Mayer solo is nice. Curious to see what comes of the Bobby stuff!
  13. I thoroughly enjoyed watching the Netflix doc. Some good news: the Bahamian caterer lady who is featured in the doc has crowd funded over $240K. https://globalnews.ca/news/4883632/fyre-fest-maryann-rolle-gofundme/
  14. This was about the same as my experience, except I got lucky and ended up with a pair at the back of 201 right beside Kuroda. It was a bit chaotic, but worked out well and I have little in the way of complaints about my experience. Sucks that some of us here had a tough go of it. Better than the older model though. Almost everyone I know got pavillions - that's a first.
  15. Nice - glad that roll of the dice worked out for you!
  16. Well put Booche! I think the waitlist thing was a surprise for anyone who got that email. BUT, last night around Midnight I got text messages with my access code, and at about 4 AM got a second email saying "you've been selected". So now I'm a Verified Fan too. From the looks of things on Twitter many others have been going through the same process. Good luck to all for decent good seats.
  17. Marc Ribot is coming to Toronto and Peterborough. Hope he adds a Montreal date! 3/1 Toronto: Jam Factory https://www.facebook.com/events/1169521176547118/ 3/2 Peterborough: Sadlier House https://www.facebook.com/events/2025920214097561/ Ribot's legacy has seen him collaborate with Tom Waits, John Zorn, Elvis Costello & a plethora of others. His numerous diverse bands and ensemble projects, plus seven solo releases have worked to define him as one of the most unique and versatile voices on the guitar. From no wave, re-imagined blues, free improvisation, and avant jazz to contemporary composition Ribot moves from one mood to another with careful continuity. Intricate notes float off his strings with a natural abandon. His solo performances see him swim through the menagerie style and genres he's touched on through out his decades of exploration in the avant guitar world.
  18. Yes!! Toronto! It's been a couple years since I bought Phish tickets. Does anyone even bother with PTBM any more? I've been screwed (i..e. getting stuck with lawns that I don't want) so many times, that I assume no one bothers. Unless they want lawns.
  19. This is the first I've heard of the band.
  20. Just noticed on the Cameron House website that Kevin Breit and David Baxter will be playing: Thurs Nov 8 @ 6 PM Thurs Nov 15 @ 6 PM Also, Kevin mentioned from the stage last week at the Sisters Euclid show that there will be another Johnny Goldtooth show in Toronto sometime in early December.
  21. Nice. Thanks Steve! There were no surprise guests at the Sisters show on Thursday... but a killer show nonetheless! Mark Lalama was absent so they played in power trio format.
