  1. Yes a great read and sentiment at the end. I can only imagine.....
  2. Nice run of gigs there.....still truckin'
  3. Ughhh.....killin me. Was supposed to see them in Cleveland last night and ArtPark today. Resigned I guess. But cool to see this nonethless
  4. Hmmm I got a message saying the vid was private, I didn't have viewing permission. Voted in spirit!

    Where's Carl?

    The story of festival season's most elusive partier.... https://edm.com/.amp/features/carl-rothbury-2008?fbclid=IwAR0WWS6oU3d9uD782suQAKj_db19OhF0jKDvrdX_83eUVmB0mwExVHjm9gM
  7. Fight back;) But agreed live streams have been a tether
  8. Lol....classic. My bets on Skern too lol. Also, I remember once at the chalet, Bren coudn't get enough of playing to himself in the mirror after he had freshly touched up his frosty tips bwahahah......"Hey you guys do you mind moving over? You're blocking the reflection of my frosty tips".....Oh to be one's own muse. Pretty sure I slept under the staircase...all class.
  9. Yes I have a vague recollection of this as well. Didn't 'Uncle Ted' end up with his mug on that site as well? I think it was actually a photo from ghost town. By the way Greg do you remember that first come together. We all drove up in your van. Arrived in the dark and was trying to park somewhere in the perimeter. Whichever hippy was navigating you as we backed in ended up getting you wedged between two trees. Lol. That was a great weekend. I think I drove your van on from there to the Gleesons' chalet in Thornbury/Collingwood. More good times. That seems like a lifetime ago.
  10. It felt weird reading that last sentence of yours! lol Kind of in the same boat....hard to get too revved up over anything with so much uncertainty. Had considered Hershey but decided to wait and see on that. I'm sure Vegas will be near impossible to acquire....maybe Fall... Maybe so and maybe not
  11. A nice little tribute....I'm sure we could come up with a list of our own. Nice to see a shout-out to Hamilton's own Casbah and for you Ottawa folks House of Targ also made the list. https://www.cbc.ca/musicinteractives/features/50-magical-canadian-concert-venues/ontario#jumptosection
  12. I never realized wook 17's origin either. Unbelievabruh!

  14. Also sending vibes, hope & a nod to the venues that keep trying to get back up despite what the government keeps throwing at them through inequitably targeting them in comparison to other industries https://globalnews.ca/news/7740287/concert-venues-ontario-covid-rules-prohibit-live-streams/?fbclid=IwAR1QaDJgykQfnPVHT2f_MU3lW2L-D7AwZLGfKMPoJ6BVDsdHFHfG-AAMldM
  15. Now off of ventilator, yet still in hospital. ((((()))))) https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/hamilton/gene-champagne-covid-19-off-ventilator-1.5976433
  16. Drummer Gene Champagne (The Killjoys, Teenage Head) in Burlington ICU with COVID-19 https://www.thespec.com/news/hamilton-region/2021/03/29/covid-gene-champagne-jo-brant.html?utm_source=facebook&source=the+hamilton+spectator&utm_medium=SocialMedia&utm_campaign=&utm_campaign_id=&utm_content= This hits close to home. I hope he pulls through. 52 years old....
  17. https://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-56256885 There's a natural mystic blowing through the air If you listen carefully now you will hear Gratitude for all that was brought and inspired
  18. For those of you who have a fondness for the unique brand of gritty, dirty beats, grooves, light, darkness & sketch that was the Comfort Zone & Silver Dollar, there is a cool little piece from Spacing magazine: http://spacing.ca/toronto/2018/02/15/peak-inside-last-days-waverly-hotel-comfort-zone/?fbclid=IwAR1_taNIcWKAnD_jn8qyiQxwQcy-0sdHC-gJ07prSa2kM1GzFlQycomweqo So many great shows there....cheers to NewRider & Mulemomma for all the amazing acts they brought through there. I have often wondered whatever happened to Cosmic Steve. These are among my MOST memorable nights, in no particular order: -Regular Fat Cats residencies; -Burt Neilson Band; -Fat Burt New Years 2000; -Jazz is Dead (faaaackin awesome...holy shit, like Jimmy feckin Herring in your living room, that band launched me); -Derek Truck Bands (he was so wee...and so was I. Also mesmorizing); Tony Trischka (nuff said); Gov't Mule (among the sweatiest shows of my life, briefly met Allen Woody & Warren that night in the staircase before the show, poor Allen passed away days later I believe it was. I remember thinking at the time of running into him that he looked a little...tired. But the show was 'bumpin') Burning Spear (ya mon....positive, uplifting times) There are many more nights that have likely been lost or obscured in the haze. It was a matter of time, but sad to see it go
  19. I mean this kid is even younger than I am
  20. Hey Adam! Good to hear from you. We sure were a lucky lucky bunch. Will be all the more grateful when we can gather for music again....at any scale!!! Hope you are faring well.
