What a night it was. Gentleman Reg opened up with a superb set minus one tune. I spent the rest of the night meeting with old friends and dancing to the eclectic uber gay, somewhat celtic somewhat 80's synth, music of The Hidden Cameras . Their new LP, Origin:Orphan, was purchased with bonus MP3s thank-you very much. Danced until 3 am with Dave Meslin, Joel Gibb, and the band, who changes usually on each tour and is not the same as when I saw them 6 years ago at Mt Royal College. Their tour bus is spacious and I mean "space", the final frontier of tour buses. What a treat. Dave and I went on a walk and I showed him the evils and public spaces of a four block radius. At one point I was sure that the Memorial Park cenotaph had been decorated in christmas lights, to my relief this was only a reflection of the flashing police vehicle lights picking up excited and soon to be crushed, unbeknownst to them, Rough Riders fans. What an appropriate evening. What fun! I highly sugge…
