Small-time celebrity

On Wednesday we played a show at an awesome little bar called Moonshine out in Oakville, an hour out of Toronto.  Everyone said such nice things about us, and was so friendly, and bought us so many beers.  A really good guitarist said my style reminded him of Johnny Buckland from Coldplay.  Someone else said one song was "so fucking Jefferson Airplane".  A table of people told Kat that she sounded like someone famous, then asked who she sounded like.  We named some random vocalists and they shouted yes! to each one.  It's so much fun when people like your music :)

I also have to write a little blurb about how awesome that bar is.  It's run by this guy named John, who is a songwriter himself.  He runs the bar because he loves to hear people come in and play the songs they poured their heart into, and he brings in performers and a crowd 7 nights a week.  The bartenders are also wicked musicians, and the jam session after the show was awesome.  John, the crew, and all the patrons are all friendly as hell, too.  And they built this community in what seems to be a suburb city, which has gotta be tough.  Plus, they organize all these cool events like camping trip/concert hybrids.  Can't say enough nice things about those guys.
