playing the little bergs
My dear friends,
I have just read one of the most appropriate, intelligent
comments ever with respect to touring in this month's Chart magazine
(which also features a story on The Inbreds...).
The wonderful thought is found in the Furnaceface article, and the
particularly paramount passage features Tom Stewart of Furnaceface
saying the following:
"Anyone who calls their tour a cross-country tour and
only plays shows from Toronto to Victoria is lame.
Saying you won't make any money or that there won't
be 500 people at your show are poor excuses not to play in
Charlottetown or St.John's."
Just a little point to ponder. Ponder at length, if you please.
Tom goes on to say in the next paragraph: "If you're in a band,
[chances are] that you're not going to get rich. You're not going to
get famous. You might as well get out and see the country."
I would love to continue with this topic, but it appears that it
is a dead end. Sad, really.
My Canada includes Quebec... and Charlottetown... and St.John's...
