Day 1. Brantford / Ford Plant
2 of the 4 bands listed on the bill didn't play/show up which is usually a bit of a bad omen. Good thing we shared the night with our pals and practice space cohorts Pants and Tie, who besides being an awesome band are also really snappy dressers with good senses of humor! Rob and I ate at KFC while Tim and Al made far more sensible dining decisions. Beers were drank in our van and someone told Tim and I about all the free burgers he managed to consume in one day and all the burger pals he made along the way doing it. We decided to play in the dark on the floor. It was a good decision.
Day 2. Peterborough / Montreal House
The easiest way to work out the kinks after a stint on the highway is to hit up the local amusement area (conviently located behind an East Side Marios/Swiss Chalet dining complex), hit the batting cages and make some stuffed animals.
We arrived at The Montreal House to more surprise last minute lineup changes. When rolling with the punches beer can be a pretty good place to start, because sometimes you gotta make the good times happen! Be advised: The guys in Great Bloomers may play great country dipped rock songs, but they can also dance. To anything!
