Chords I've Known
So after the movie last night, we swung by the Unicorn on Eglinton for some food/drinks. They had an honest-to-god bar cover band there! We’re talking, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jimi Hendrix, Tragically Hip covers here… and of course, Stevie Ray Vaughan. I was fascinated, I’d heard tale of such things but never thought I’d witness one! They were tight, but the guitarist didn’t seem too keen on taking solos which is odd, since these outfits are usually vehicles for a good ol’ six-string wank-o-rama. Either way, I was amused.
Got my Longwave CD in the mail yesterday, it should hold me over till the new album is released in February. Still no sign of my Joe Pernice CD though – it’s been almost two weeks since the auction closed, and even with the holiday rush, that’s a little long. Emailed the vendor and he said it either went out last Friday or this Tuesday. Seems like an honest enough guy, so I’ll give it another week before I chalk it up to the USPS or Canada Post losing my stuff.
Have to finish my Christmas shopping today. So much for that one-day swoop I’d intended a couple weeks ago.
Having a bit of a Waterloo class reunion tonight. The excuse is that Yolanda is back from Cambridge (UK) for the holidays and is in town. Should be fun, there’s people coming who I haven’t seen since graduation. I figure after three years, we might actually have something to talk about. For a few minutes, anyway.
