It’s Better To Burn Out Than Fade Away, Isn’t It?

.: In the fall of 2004, my friend James invited to join him and sit in with a band called Hardy Drew and the Nancy Boys, a long-running musical project of the drummer and songwriter, David Leigh. James, the bass guitarist, and I had played together previously in Edmonton in 1990-91, as members of the seminal, cutting-edge band The Flicks (ok, so I embellish a bit, but seriously…) I continued rehearsing with HDNB until Feb 2005, when the project went on hold for about a year, until spring 2006. Since then, David and James and I have been rehearsing and polishing up David’s original tunes as well as a handful of covers.

Now comes word that we have a one set gig on Sunday, 28 May 2006, at The Fox Pub in Edmonton. The information I have is that we will be on stage at 2000 hrs (08:00 pm), and will play a short, one set gig. Cover is $6.00. If you’re in town that night, please come by, it would be great to have the support of friends. With the exceptions of playing twice with the late, great Edmonton band, Capt. Nemo, the last time at The Sidetrack on 13 July 1999, this will be the first time I perform loud, noisy electric music on stage since 1991. Is it too late to rock at 52? Stay tuned and find out.

    of course it’s NOT late! Congratulations on the gig!! I hope all goes well and that if I’m somewhere on the same continent, I would definitely drop by.

    Good luck!

    Curse you! First, I see Maria is playing on the 18th, and now this. We’re in town over the long weekend, and so will conveniently miss both shows.
