I am excited to announce that Blues In D has asked me to play at their final Show; I'm even more excited that it's going to take place at Lee's Palace, one of Toronto's most legendary venues!
Why so legendary you might ask?
The following bands have performed at Lee's Palace early in their careers: Nirvana, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Elliot Smith, Blue Rodeo etc etc etc...
The set times are as follows:
10:00 - The Jing Bang Show: http://www.myspace.com/thejingbangshow
11:00 - Dave Borins w/ full band - http://www.daveborins.com
12:00 - Blues in D - http://www.myspace.com/bluesind
Truth be told, I did play there once!
It was 1:30am, on a wednesday 2006, I was last on the bill, playing solo acoustic after 8 punk and metal bands! In attendence: The Bartender, The soundguy, some drunk dude, and I vaguely remember my friends adam haller and rob trager bothering the soundguy to give me a record deal!
A lot of time has passed, and Its a Friday night, 11pm... Prime Time for my first big full band show of the year!!!
come party with the other bands and I, The evening's energy is going to be incredible!
Here is a note from the headliners:
"We hope you will all join us on this night to celebrate the last year and bit of Blues in D and to be a part of our last show together. We couldn't be more excited about playing Lee's Palace on a Friday night. Playing this unbelievable venue has been a dream of ours for quite some time, and we would really like to share it with all of the people who have supported us along the way."
