    The first get together of my new band took place on Sunday afternoon. We consist of a fabulous female singer (who will from time to time play acoustic guitar, harmonica or trumpet), another guitar player, a bass player and a drummer. The musical focus is covers of old country, alt country, country rock and Americana (for stuff that doesn't easily fit the other categories). The first eight songs we worked through on Sunday were:

    • The Rolling Stone-Dead Flowers
    • Emmylou Harris-Heaven Only Knows
    • Lucinda Williams-Lost It
    • Ryan Adams-Firecracker
    • Townes Van Zandt-Pancho and Lefty
    • Lone Justice (Maria McKee)-Ways to Be Wicked
    • Linda Ronstadt-Poor, Poor, Pitiful Me
    • Rodney Crowell-Ain't Livin' Long Like This
    All suggestions welcome.

    I think I may come to regret the "all suggestions welcome" invitation.

    Believe it or not, right around the corner from where I live, not 30 feet away, is a statue of the unofficial first mayor of Vancouver, Gassy Jack.

    Mad, I was just reading about him (and Vancouver in general).
    Beautiful place from the pics. Kitsilano Beach looks great. The cityscape looks so damn good in the pics.
    I read about Gastown too.

    Looks like an awesome place.
