Friday April 26th w Blackdog Ballroom @ Lee's Palace (529 Bloor W) 10:30pm

blackdog I was excited and a little bit frightened when Dave Langguth called me up to sub with this band.  Dave is best known as Nelly Furtado's powerhouse drummer and is one of Toronto's finest.

Anyhow I took the plunge and am glad I did. This band has some very challenging and groovy material....
