Interesting Gig in a small town called Mirror

We had an entertaining night on Saturday when we played at a small bar in a hotel in Mirror, Alberta. There were some hilarious moments.

The first thing we noticed when we arrived was a used syringe in the gutter outside the hotel. On the other side of the street kids were playing...

The place where we played has an interesting look to it. On the walls, you can find a talking deer head, stuffed animals like a beer-drinking coyote and a mole with the sign "No Gamoling" next to it, as well as other kinds of animals on display.

The crowd was small but very interactive. When Myra said, "here is a song by Sheryl Crow", a guy yelled, "Hey, I shot a crow today!". It went on like that between songs - quite hilarious! Some of the comments were too obscene to post here.

I played my Reverend Hellhound and my usual pedals, mostly the Maxon SD-9, Fulltone Clyde Wah, Bad Monkey and my Lexicon LXP-1 reverb. I had really good tone, and I was miking the amp so there was guitar everywhere.

We had some new country songs we tried out (songs by Sara Evans and Trisha Yearwood) and it sounded promising. We just need to rehearse them a bit more.

I had the video camera set up, and hopefully I'll get some good clips from that night I can post on this website. I'll try and get that done this week.

This Wednesday we are hosting the jam again at O'Shea's Eatery and Ale House - come on over and jam with us!
