Back in Toronto after a blitz drive from Halifax yesterday. The tour was alright in the end, a few mix ups and cancellations, but we did what we could with what we were given, you know? Had a blast at the Harvest Jazz and Blues festival with D. Myles as well on Thursday. They really know how to treat a band; gave us a rider with fresh baked cookies, trail mix, fruit, lots of great beer, and even a copy of the New yorker for David, he’s a big fan. The show was super fun, and saw some great acts including a family band from New Orleans called Homemade Jamz. I heard their drummer from backstage and was totally into it, then had my mind blown when I found out she wa turning twelve the next day. Impressive and depressing all at once, geez. Also got to see JJ Johnson lay it down with Derek Trucks. I’ve never been a fan of the records he’s put out, but live it was really special.
It’s super nice outside and I’ve spent waaaay to much time in a motor vehicle lately, so I’m headed for a stroll. Lots of things getting started this week, we’ll talk soon. xo
