When you are touring, you know there is always going to be a a shitty moment and tonight was the night. We had lovely people come out to hear us play, they really listened to our music which was great and we appreciate that! The kicker was that we are two really great musicians who were not paid at all for an evening of performance. What does that say about the state of the arts today?
Swimming to Victoria
Thursday, November 19, 2009
9:00 am Mel has a look in her eye and I know it is not good! The ferry’s were shut down last night, because of gail force winds, so today there is a wee back log at Tswassen.
Apparently everyone is trying to get to Victoria to hear push3.
Mel, my personal hero, had an epiphany, at 9:07 am in the rain, without caffeine. So we head to Horseshoe Bay for the 10:30 am ferry which means we have to drive up island. in a downpour, to Victoria with large puddles on the highway. Did you know that opposing traffic can hurl water over the concrete partition and hit oncoming traffic windshields?
Well it can.
And we made it to Victoria.
The Superior was great. Everyone at the Superior was fabulous. The food is amazing. It is a great room to play. The are really supportive of indie music and more venues like The Superior would be grand.
The Pert Shampoo Marketing Plan
Friday, November 13, 2009
We are off to Vancouver Island next week and the pert shampoo marketing plan is in full swing. For those of you who don’t remember the commercials, imagine a blonde with really, and we mean really, bouncy hair, saying ” I tried Pert shampoo and I loved it. So I told a friend and she told a friend.” Well you get the idea. To any one who has passed on the gig info to a friend (or two) thank you so much.
We can’t wait to hit the island this Thursday and try out all the new songs.

Kathryn and I have jumped off the deep end while getting ready for the tour. The new gear has been flooding into our studios. We now both have new effect pedal systems to conquer, new amps and new mics. Look out Vancouver Island, here we come!
