November 18th – Vancouver – Nyala
I had wanted to go to the island a day before my show at the VIU pub, but because of the weather (winds of 70 km/hr) the ferries were canceled. So, technology served me well, as I posted on facebook about how I wasn’t able to get to the island, and soon I got a response from the person at the Georgia Straight that reviewed my album (Miranda Nelson) inviting me to another show happening that night in Vancouver. So I showed up, met her in person, and even ended up getting an opening slot for the band Jackie Treehorn (made up of members of Distracticon). It was at an interesting little African restaurant called Nyala, and I was wearing a ‘Wivestale‘ t-shirt, and ended up having several people recognize the shirt and make the Thunder Bay connection!
