Joel Plaskett Show

There has not been a show during which Mr. Plaskett has disappointed me.  Miklos felt bad for me after we missed the June show at Brock because I was working in a pee-pee soaked heckhole so he got these tickets as soon as I found out they were on sale. We’d been looking forward to it all summer.  So when we realized it was actually October 19th this past week, we got ourselves psyched, headed to Hamilton, Ontario, and got slightly lost in a parking … Continue reading

A Day Without a Dog

…or a few hours anyway. So rarely does the house smell as good as it does when there’s no Labrador to shed all over it.

Robin Pecknold continues to be wonderful in every way.

Well, there’s more proof in the pudding that one of this era’s most talented musicians is just as great a guy as he is at tugging my emotions every which way on a long drive down the northern highways. Not only did he comment on this guy’s cover of “Olivia, In a … Continue reading

More Music without Videos

These helped the evening along nicely. Back to reality (from… unreality? Lala land? I dunno). Matthew Good – Last Parade Modest Mouse – The World at Large Addendum: Oh and if you’re a fan of Joel Plaskett (or don’t yet know him), I’ve been listening to Scrappy Happiness tonight and you can too, thanks to CBC Music.
