Giant Things by the Side of the Highway

On Monday, in celebration of Family Day, we gave perhaps the best performance ever of Giant Things. Usually this means we didn’t record it, but in this case we got lucky, so here it is!

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

If you’re so inclined, there’s a lead sheet here.

Also on Monday, Doug Tielli sat in for the second set. He was amazing. Stay tuned – we’ll be adding some songs we played with Doug, as well as a couple of tracks from our shows with James Robertson and Thom Gill!

Poor Christine!

Monday, August 30th, 2010 | Uncategorized | No Comments

Everybody knows how rotten a summer cold can be, and it looks like nobody knows it better right now than Christine.

This’ll be the third week we haven’t played together: 2 weeks ago, Christine played solo while I taught a class. Last week I played solo while Christine got some well-deserved nature time. We’re going to start getting a bit squirrelly after this!

I’ll be playing tonight with one of my oldest and best friends, Chris Banks. Hopefully, as a bonus, Julia Hambleton will be able to get out from behind the bar and play some clarinet for the second set. Christine will stay home and let Ali take care of her.

It’ll still be awesome, just different awesome.

Get better Christine!

Well, of course they are. And I’m lucky enough to have them play with me at the Tranzac this Monday while Christine’s away.

Then next week Chris, Roger Travassos and Bryden Baird join us for a whole night of songs by Hall and Oates!
