Well here we are, after an awesome summer, the first day of Autumn come and gone, a little damper in our bodies, but not in our spirits!
A good weekend is planned, so please join me!
Tonight, Thursday I have a trifecta on the go...
First, at 6 pm Sylvia and I are heading to an Art Opening at the Archer and Horseman Gallery at 208 E 16th, to take in the trio of amazing artists:
Raymond, Mischa, and Philip... Tim Chow is having his birthday and will also be playing music there. I just might sit in....
After that, around 7 pm we head over to The Fairview (Broadway and Laurel) where John Nolan has performed steadily for over 20 years. I will definitely sit in! John plays great drums and always has a crack band...
Around 9 pm we will head over to Ten Ten Tapas
(1010 Beach Ave, on the seawall), where the little lady with alotta larynx, LJ Mounteney is performing with Ron Thompson..... they make a great musical team and yes, I will bring my horn....
, I am at the Hard Rock Casino
in Coquitlam at 9:30 pm
in The Unlisted Lounge. This is a fun little gig with lots of friends dropping by for a drink and some tasty food.
THEN ON Saturday eve at 7 pm, I am at MY regular gig at Ten Ten Tapas, and special guests such as Billy Dixon and Lisa Fennell are slated to perform. BTW, I am producing Lisa's first album, due in the spring).
FOLLOWING THAT, on Sunday I am back at the Hard Rock, where they throw a big party for ANYONE who has a birthday in September! Regular patrons are welcome, but if you are a September Baby, come to The Asylum at 12:45 pm and register for big prizes. I play there at 1 pm, and move over to The Unlisted from 2 until 5pm.
Hope to see you this weekend!
