What the shit!? Really?!
Here the big plan was to do no shows in town or otherwise for the month of February and get some new tunes hammered out.
Well seeing as Saturday we were in Lethbridge playing and Friday we're doing a show here in town I guess things never quite work out how you plan.
Now I'm getting e-mails about May on the road. Christ last year playing two shows out of town was a big deal over the whole year. All of a sudden it's one a month . . . maybe next will be a whole week on the road. That would be a pretty killer life experience.
Speaking on life experiences I had a quirky one Sunday night when Lisa and I went to meet up with the dude promoting this Friday's show. Originally the plan was to hit Bottlescrew Bills . . . fine with me there, dingy meeting over some bad draft, sounds like my kind of meeting. Well, it was closed so his alternative was his place of work. Raw Bar.
Next thing you know he's dragging out REALLY good, and I'm guessing what would have been $15 a glass cocktails if we were paying, Tuna Tataki and Steak Tartar. So let's paint a picture shall we. Here are Troy and Lisa . . . dressed in dirty hoodies and jeans sitting in a place that describes itself as couture dining. On the ground floor of Hotel Arts. Being treated to some fine dining. Fact . . . Fine dining is over rated.
I have promised myself to try anything once. Once was enough. I'm not a fan of rare steak, let alone raw, I stay unpersuaded. Also not being a fish fan the Tuna Tataki was a leap. It was good. But I don't think I could eat a whole plate of it.
