this is on the very cusp of being sadies related.
but i know since our dear moderators heart is actually constructed of tiny candies sewn together from wide eyed kitten fairies for union wages that she won't mind.

there is a rumour that rick white will be backing up the lovely julie 'break your heart with a song' doiron when she plays the 'evil dreary white pants only' drake hotel febuary 20th (w. support from wooly leaves and baby eagle).

that's right. me and 3/4 of the sadies! (i love the expressions on their faces.)
they were totally on my plane to vancouver yesterday! i was sitting at the beginning of the flight with my brother, and i was pretty sure i had just seen dallas walk by. sure enough, then came travis, and then the rest. sean was sitting right in front of my brother, and mike in the next aisle beside him. dallas and travis were a few rows back. i wasn't sure whether or not to say anything, but eventually (over 3 hours into the flight) i moved over one seat to the aisle (josh was in the bathroom) and said hi. i told sean that i was a big sadies fan and asked if they were playing a vancouver date. i was pretty sure they weren't, but it could have changed since i last checked. but alas, they're still not. he said something about them being booked at these places specifically (victoria, etc.) and not doing any more dates because they're getting old. heh. he introduced me to mike, who said hi and then went back to his headphones. and that was that, for the time being.

then, when we were waiting for the luggage at the airport, i saw dallas and mike and decided i wanted a picture with them because i'm cool like that. so my brother and i walked over, and then travis came too, so i said hi to him and dallas and they introduced themselves (well, dallas did, travis just kind of stood there, but i shook his hand anyway). then my brother took the picture. i'm not sure where sean was, but oh well. those good brothers are so...dry, or something. it's funny. travis asked me if i lived in vancouver, and as i answered, his gaze sort of directed upwards. maybe he didn't want to know the answer? maybe he was high?
anyway, so then we just hung around waiting for our bags, and then mike noticed my brother's baseball bag and asked if he played baseball (he does). they then got in a big discussion about baseball.

and then our bags came, and we left. dallas said bye. and gave me free tickets to a show. just kidding.

so yeah. craziness. i can now say i've waited for my luggage with one of canada's best live bands!

This isn't by any means news, but just makin' conversation....

I tend to be the last one to find out about things and in similar fashion, I discovered this gem of an album today: Carolyn Mark & Her Room-mates Present: A Tribute To the Soundtrack to Robert Altman's Nashville (scroll down to the third CD). It was released in 2002 and definitely worth checking out.

And this is Sadies-related, because there's a song on there performed by Dallas called "Bluebird" and Travis is credited to some violin-playing.

Are any of you already familiar with this tribute CD?

I'm finally getting around to sorting through and uploading the pictures I took this summer...and thanks in part to rockpaperpixel's encouragement, I have decided to come on over here and pimp out some Ottawa Folkfest pictures I took of The Sadies (with Amy Millan) back in August. They can be found here for your viewing pleasure.

andre ethier/sadies/greg keelor in vancouver

i went to the concert last night at the commodore, and i had been wondering before if it would be as good, since i had thought that the sadies might just be backing greg keelor and not playing their own songs, but they ended up playing a set before joining greg keelor. (run-on sentences are fun!) and of course they were fabulous. i went to the concert to see the sadies, so most of the pictures are of them. and a couple with andre. i've never been so close, i was resting my beer on the stage!
anyway, i'm not really a photographer, but pictures are here if you're so inclined! (the last picture is of an honorary sadie. just kidding.)
