March 30 – Fredericton, NB

Stage at the Capital in Fredericton, NB

I’ve played in Fredericton several times now, but only once before at the Capital. I forgot how friggin’ loud it is in there! It was just myself and Judicom (a disco/house DJ duo) that night, so we each did several sets throughout the evening. After my first set, Judicom kicked things up a notch by taking the party into the ‘dance’ direction. I was stuck. I had to bring the party. So I did a whole lot of improv interspersed with my written tunes, and had people dancing, clapping along, and even a punk rock inspired ‘oi’-style chant.

Then something bad happened. I started to lose my voice. It was probably the chanting, but it was on it’s way out. Luckily, a black fellow missing a tooth leaned over the railing on the stage and yelled out, “Yo man, can I spit some rhymes?”

“Hells yeah, do it!”

This whole thing could have gone in either direction: deadly hip hop, or random drunk guy mumbling into a mic. Thankfully it was the first option! Apparently it was Ceeb, one of the few hip hop MC’s in Fredericton, and notorious for jumping up on stage with random artists.

My friend Greg (who is working on a remix on one of my tracks) even caught the jam session on video. Check it out!

March 25 – Fredericton – The Capital

Shannon and I woke up in a nice house after the Saint John show, thanks to our wonderful hosts (whose names I don’t remember because I was still getting over the food poisoning), which was across the street from Andy Stevens’ place. We headed over just in time to join Ace Kinkaid and ¾ of We, The Undersigned enjoying some homemade breakfast thanks to Liam and Jared. We thanked them all, returned their gravol and other pharmaceuticals and started driving to Fredericton.

Fredericton was fun, as I was feeling substantially better and Shannnon did a jumping shoot with our friend John Martin. The show was at the Capital, which is a cool, long venue. The only problem is that there are hardly any chairs in the entire place, but there is a lounge upstairs for anyone into dance music. After the show we had to go across the back alleyway to grab a giant slice of pizza, which is always fun on a weekend and there’s a lineup of 25 people who are too intoxicated to keep the toppings on their slice.
