At the strike of midnight at the Horseshoe's NYE festivities on Sunday, Dallas Good (of the Sadies) promised that 2007 would be "the best year ever .. hell, 'ever' doesn't even come close!"

i think this would be dallas approved:

every wendsday - the rattlesnake choir @ the paddock (178 bathurst @ queen) > a really great country band feat members of the cameron family singer and john borra, they have a fella play the slinky and the cheese grater, no joke.

13th - kristine schmitt and the powers that be ("a blend of pre-war acoustic blues piano with honkytonk, bluegrass. gospel and jazz)") @ gate 403 (396 roncesvalles ave), pwyc

& creaking tree go at it every tuesday this month.

the best bands/people in toronto just play all of the day all of the time.


cheers

Arghh! Garry! Wow, I suck. I was so focused on the beauty of your photo that I mispelled your name. Yep, that's it.

Sorry I missed these brokenengine. Unfortunately if a show is not listed on any of my usual haunts (Eye, Now, Rotate, Stillepost, Zoilus) it's hard to find out about reminders without folks like you, so keep 'em coming!
