Show Day in Edmonton

Today we're playing the Rexall Arena in Edmonton, home of the NHL's Edmonton Oilers.

OK, now that you've stopped yawning…

First thing this morning, as I'm setting up my world, I look up to see Janet, our production assistant, doing a table dance on the table next to mine.


Get tired of working late morning and take a walk around the arena. Six trucks can sure hold a lot of crap:

I try to get some shots during the show, too, but they all sucked.

We had 12,636 paid tonight and a couple hundred more in comps. Good strong, loud crowd. The kids here definitely rock!

The band makes a bunch of extra money, their manager in L.A. is happy. I'm done early, so get the blog caught up and websurf for a while

Think I'll have a Bud or 2 tonight. We've got an 825 mile drive to Winnipeg for our day off tomorrow, so a couple of beers and an Ambien sounds about right for some good sleep. We won't leave here before 2am, so no way we're there before 4pm tomorrow, probably more like 5 or 6pm. Sucks!

Try some Tim Horton's while you're there (coffee or doughnuts; chocolate TimBits can be habit forming). That's the Canadian counterpart of Dunkin/Krispy Kreme/Starbucks. In most Canadian cities you can't swing a dead cat without hitting one. Try.

Going to see The Woods on Sunday night. I'll tell 'em you said "hey!"
