This is what my pal Joel Stewart has to say about the songwriter’s showcase this Thursday the 22nd-
Just a note to let you know that I will be spreading my unique brand of holiday despair at the Karma Local Arts House on Thursday, December 22nd.
My friend Lorrie Matheson is hosting the event and I will take the stage with an acoustic guitar and an attitude.
If you are in the Calgary area, come out and drink beer.
Say hi to Sparky, the new owner of Karma.
Hear many songs about my crappy life up to this point.
Should be fun.
Please pass this on to anyone I may have omitted.
That about sums it up, really, but he should have added that the many songs about his crappy life up to this point are frickin’ brilliant.
If you can’t get out on Thursday, or if you haven’t had enough of me by then, come down to the Barfly on 11th Ave between 5th and 6th Streets SW on Friday nite, where I’ll lay it down old-school all night long. Say “Happy Xmas” to the bear behind the bar (Clint), and we’ll have some holiday cheer.
Next Thursday, the inimitable Clinton St. John from local faves the Cape May will take the stage w/ me @ Karma, and on Friday the 30th, my old pal Tim Leacock and I (and hopefully some guests) are gonna knock out some rock, duo-style @ Karma. $5 cover on the 30th, just because its a day before The Big One, when you’re gonna pay anywhere from $25-$100 to get in anyplace. So ring in the New Year’s Eve w/ me and Dutch, and then stay home and rent movies on the 31st. It just makes economical sense, dontcha think?
Merry Christmas, all. Cheers!
