The show last night was amazing. I met the Ladies and Gentlemen and bought a CD and saw some other great bands to boot: Sleep The Season along with Wintersleep,Friday Mornings Regret, In the Hills the Cities, and Noyan Hilmi (Five Blank Pages). I hung out with Greg "the soundman". He's cool. He owns a farm and records bands at his farmhouse studio, has been doing it for years now, since before Jerry's Alley burned down. So we talked about music while the bands played, and that was nice. Jeffrey couldn't make it, he didn't have the money for cover, and Steve and Robin couldn't make it, because they got stuck at a party in Thorold until 1 am. Still, it was a great night, and I got to meet some great people. The bands' were all gracious and not at all uptight. Very cool.
