Our good times have been scattered as of late, few and far between but all big, fun times (as in, occasions of large enjoyment.) Some of them have been in unorthodox formats (and for us, that’s saying something), and others have just crept up on us while we were consumed with other details (ask Airbeard about his musical Choose-Your-Own-Adventure, for instance!)
Case in point, we had a lot of fun at the Gastown Tattoo Parlour’s grand opening Sat, May 28 — one of the very, very few kinds of rooms we’d never played before. But you never found out about it until now. Well, do go check them out — even when they don’t host damnable jug bands, their ink is something quite special.
We’re not going to let tonight quite squeak on by — at the Railway Club (579 Dunsmuir, upstairs) from likely 9 on we’ll be opening for another of our new Manitoban friends, Winnipeg’s wholly decently-named F-Holes, delivering a heady mix of gypsy jazz, zippy dixieland, and viper blues. We’ve never played a gig east of BC, but at this rate we’ll never need to — they keep on coming to us!
