Rocket to the Rickshaw
Posted on October 2nd, 2010 by Mike
Back home after our mini-tour of Eastern Canada. Made it all the way; made the flights and made all the gigs and made it back home. A triumph of organization and logistics, by our standards.
Big thanks to all the people who helped us: James and Melanie who booked and publicized, Nora and Marie and David and Monk and Fred who put us up, all the club staff and soundpeople, and especially all the bands who did us the favour of playing with us: Coffincheater, Unbelievers, Skullians, Delinquents, October Crisis, Diskonected, Evil Boys, Omegas, Whiskeyshits, Snatchback, Four-Stroke, Striver, Gerbia, and Buddha Bulldozer. I got to watch everybody’s sets from the merch table (highlight of the touring day), and there wasn’t anyone who wasn’t worth a listen.
Next up: Saturday, October 16 at the Rickshaw Theatre, right in the heart of the picturesque Hastings and Main area of beautiful downtown Vancouver, with Jello Biafra and the Guantanamo School of Medicine, and Fuel Injected .45.
Last time we played with Mr. Jello B. in Vancouver was 1979, which is 31 years ago if you’re counting.
