Nous y serons. J'espère amener mes ados. A bientôt!
Ottawa has a fantastic festival each year and this year can only be magical with the Furthur show coming. Unfortunately there is no parking lot at this venue or even one close by, parking would be in a downtown lot then a long walk to the site. The transit system (bus) is the easiest way to get there.Check out bluesfest.ca for all the info. I have volunteered the last 5 years at this festival and it out does it self each year, I live in Ottawa and any info you need let me know.
Time to kiss up to the wife. If ottawa is the only gig up here I guess I'll take it. Still holdin out for a T.O gig though
Whoa, there.... Ottawa you say? Geez - Playin' & I got a jammin date that night... hmm...
ya beat me to it man.................see you all there :):):)
I am so amazed that the Furthur show is crossing the border and coming to my town on Wed July 7. It will be the highlight of my year to see the boys.

Probably just the only one online. How long you been living in the big nickle? How's your weather?
I can't be the only head in Sudbury, could I?
I posted this elsewhere but wanted to share with our thread too:
For all you heads in the academy, and for those of us struggling to follow along, I wanted to share my excitement at a new publication:
The Grateful Dead in Concert: Essays on Live Improvisation
Jim Tuedio, Stan Spector, eds
My partner, Brent Wood, contributed an essay entitled "The Eccentric Revolutions of Phil Lesh". It is a great piece of work and feels good to see it in print after hours of conversation, listening and writing. He's already published an essay on Robert Hunter's poetry and psychedelic experience and is currently tackling the subject of Jerry & tragedy. These pieces will hopefully appear as a whole book in future.
This book is carefully put together with foreword by Stanley Krippner and contributions by Meriwether, Spector, and the usual suspects as well as others. Great writing, nice organization (tuning, first, 2nd, 3rd sets, encore...) and good ideas. Reads like a show. Enjoy!
Thanks for the Caution Jam info.....
