At lunch, to entertain the crowd at the Just Transitions summit in Regina, musician and song writer Laura Stewart played her carbon tax song. It’s pretty catchy, and I hope the PM listens to it.
Kicked it off on Monday with a dancing pickle, and Bike Regina.
Pile of Bones Brass Band
Parade on Saturday
Hatching a plan with Elan Morgan and photographer Aidan Morgan. #YQRtweetupX idea was born in the middle of 13th Avenue by Safeway, because only people with interesting ideas can be found standing in the middle of streets.
If they were half as loud, they’d be twice as good. PandaCorn grew on me as their set went on. I kept hoping for a wardrobe change after the first song, because they are too good to depend all show on a costume gimick to support their band name and image. I opted to plug my ears for most of the songs so I could hear them without more than my guts shaking.
PandaCorn’s female singer Megan Nash sounds a bit like Jennifer Nettles.
The third band was just as loud, or louder, and I left with my friends after a couple of their songs. The sound mixing folks have to realize that they can be loud, but they must play to the limits of human comfort, not to the limits of audio technology (which is quite capable of making all of us quite deaf in short order).
