So today we departed Toronto at an obscenely early time and drove all the way to Quebec city to kick off our cross-Canada tour. The ride here was fairly uneventful, mostly everyone was snoozin’ (except the driver, phewf!) Jamie and I recorded a radio spot for CBC in Fredricton from the van, so maybe you might hear it sometime this week. We also stopped by Last Gang Records office in Montreal, said hi to the crew there and hit the road with plenty of cds and vinyl to sell on the road.
Currently we are hanging out at Le Cercle in Quebec city, with our dear friends the Acorn, Howie and Jeffrey are playing dice, Ryan is reading and writing, Jenny is knitting, Heather is playing banjo somewhere, Jamie is touching his Ipod touch, and Casey and I are internetting. Nice ways to pass time before the show tonight!
