back to SHOW DIARIES

Deep in the Canadian snowbelt lies the town of Barrie, Ontario. OK, well... maybe not deep. But it's in the snowbelt
nonetheless. Although there was no now that day. It was, however, freakin' cold. Compared to Toronto, anyway,
where it was a beautiful, nearly balmy, T-Shirt and shorts kind of day.

Steve showed up at the rehearsal space with a Jeep this time, which we filled with our gear and selves, leaving Scott
at the mercy of Scworm's creative driving skills. On the way there, we rocked out to "A-With-A-Teeth-A". This was my
first time hearing it on a good system, and I'm still not sure how I feel about it. Too much mid-tempo grooving for my tastes.
(Although the production is, of course, stellar.) I want to give a vocal-less copy of "Only" to James Brown and see what
he does with it.

But anyway... off we went, into the uncharted wilds (AKA anything north of Bloor st), up highway 400, past the giant plastic
mountain, past the old factory where Molson used to make something they claim to be beer (but isn't), which then became
a place to grow vegetation which some people claim to be illegal (but shouldn't be), and finally on to Barrie and the
Foundation nightclub.

The Foundation is a pretty cool place. They've obviously sunk some serious cash into the sound and lighting. It's just too
bad that more people don't seem to realize that. Oh well. So the crowd was small, but appreciative. And I'd rather play to
25 people who like us than 80 000 who don't. So during "Vomitorium", I walked out into the crowd and thanked everybody
individually.

It's those personal touches that really make a show special, don't you think?

Thanks go out to the Divine for inviting us up to play, to Eric the Sound Guy for doing as his title suggests, and to Universal
Love Attack for putting on a great show.
