>Hasn't any band member got a cute new s.o.?
We're all cute in NF, it's just part of the culture. :^) 

>Aren't any EC bands currently on tour, and worthy of review?
Burnt Black are here in St. John's this week and next. Smiley (Fredricton) 
just left St. John's yesterday as they played a few successful and very
entertaining shows at Junctions and the Edge. Ofcoarse we just had the
Great Big Picnic last weekend but I can't review because I had absolutely
no interest in going.

>Aren't any gigs happening at little dives, or has our nightlife been

>waitress dumping his girlfriend's last call on the sidewalk?

Peace-A-Chord is all this weekend in Bannerman Park, St. John's. It's FREE
folks so everyone is welcome. Entertainment starts at noon and runs till
10PM each day. Over fifty local acts will perform, key speakers,
environmental booths, and ofcourse Peace-A-Chord CDs will be for sale for
$12 (19 bands for $12 - good deal). 

Burnt Black play Saturday night at The Edge with St. John's locals Bucket
Truck and Ched.
The Burnt guys will also play the following weekend at Junctions... more on
that later.

Monday night is the CD release show for Gearbox at Junctions.

Tonight Fur Packed Action and Trimmed Naval Beef (two of NFs most funest
bands) play at Junctions.

>The quieter, the better, I say.
