An amazing thing happened this fall. I've been pinching myself for a while now, and I have lots of bruises, and the thing still appears to be true.
The owner of my favourite bar/watering hole/music venue stumbled across this post, where I was whining and complaining about not being able to go see Ball and Chain. She liked what I said about her bar, and watched our videos. Then she sent me the following miraculous message: "I love your band. You should play here."
Just a second while I pinch myself again. Ow. No, I'm not dreaming.
So, our first full gig is going to be at my favourite place to hang out, drink, listen to music in all of Ottawa, the Elmdale House Tavern in Hintonburg.
Ow. Yes, it's true!
So save this date - December 11th, it's a Thursday night, you can call in sick the next day.
If you don't like drinking beer by the quart, you can have Beau's Organic. Or if, like me, you're not really a beer person, I recommend a rye and ginger.
