Royal Canoe- Who Knew?

I couldn’t help myself- someone yelled this out at tonight’s show.

Kind of cheesy and a little funny- in a Seusian (is that even a word?) way.

I saw them at Canadian Music Week twice and had planned to see them at The Garrison- even though the sound was atrocious the last time I was there. I waffled about going because of the sound issue but I am so glad I acquiesced. 

I had actually forgotten how much I liked them until a friend forwarded this video of a stripped down performance.

The crowd was small (about 50) but very enthusiastic- much better than the crowd at the Hard Luck show back in March.

I had a great vantage point so I got to see some things I had missed the previous shows. Each member of the band was SO into what they were doing and you couldn’t help but get sucked in and caught up in their energy.

Only two gripes….

Their set was way too short. I don’t care if it’s a school night. We’re all adults- if you have to go, you can go.

CDs? I want their old full length album and the new one they finished mixing just before embarking on their latest tour. My friend is going to get them to send her a copy but I think I’ll just have to go to their next show in Toronto- probably sometime in the fall- and get them then.
