May 25th-27th “Dude, the doctor I had came in wearing flip-flops and a t-shirt and looked exactly like Steve Nash. It was amazing all day. I was all like, Go Suns!” – Cody Beer on his visit to the Mackenzie Health Centre We write to you from Mackenzie BC! Established in 1967 by Alexandra Forest Industries (BC Forest Products), Mackenzie is a beautiful part of our province, operating and existing on forestry and metallurgy, the very stuff of our planet, and is also home to the World’s Largest Tree Crusher, in which we recommend not to play on. It is not a toy, it is not a toy, it is NOT a toy: We were really excited to set up Jobfest and play in Mackenzie! Not only was the weather >> read more

We began the day with a fancy breakfast, in which we prepared in our friend Becky’s hotel room with faulty, dull and ancient appliances, that threatened fire, blood and doom, an effort to pay her back for finding Jeff’s phone after he had briefly misplaced it when he became a momentary bar-star in Prince George.

May 19th-22nd “I’m glad I finally found an instrument that’s the same timbre as my voice.” – Dan Ball when referring to the Banjo After a couple days off in Prince George, where we did lots of laundry, took advantage of the Sandman Inn’s pool and fitness room, and spent a great deal of time losing our cell-phones and destroying our eardrums while dancing at a local club called “The Generator” (and promptly being kicked out for dancing a little TOO well, I might add), where we bonded as a team accompanied by the fine quality of an Earls restaurant (Oh, Earls…) and Dan Ball played banjo until the sun came up, we finally reach McBride BC!

Cover Song Tuesday – The Gaslight Anthem
Well Hello there, and welcome to Cover Song Tuesday! This week’s feature song is The Gaslight Anthem’s “The ’59 Sound.” Please enjoy, and let us know what you think! This video will be the first of many to kick off a series of weekly acoustic cover songs, which we are calling “Cover Song Tuesday,” a selection of our bands all time favourite songs and tour jams, stripped down and filmed in our hotel rooms while we are on tour this summer. We have to do something with the down-time, so why not make it musical? Every Tuesday will feature a new acoustic song, and hopefully we will have a chance to introduce some surprise guests along the way! Visit our Youtube to see the videos as we build our collection >> read more
