Just a quick update of where to go etc. Ignite Waterloo 9 is tonight at the Perimeter Institute. For all details, including how to watch the livestream, go to ignitewaterloo.ca.
Doors open at 7:30 with talks beginning at 8. I’m the second-to-last speaker so will likely be on shortly after ten. Hm… just had my first hint of nervousness. Thought I might avoid it! Oh well…
I’m looking forward to it; will be great to see one at the PI – what a fantastic space. Good luck to all the other speakers as well!
This past Sunday, our newly-formed band had a great time playing the Grand Porch Party in Uptown Waterloo. Thanks so much to Tenille and her team for organizing what is becoming a wonderful annual event!
It’s a busy week so I have no pictures etc. to share of the event; however Darin White made a great photoblog of it here. Thanks Darin!!
My lovely and ever-patient sister was kind enough to record our set at the price of her arms going numb (thanks chickadee!) so when I get that, if it turned out, I will post a few songs. In the meantime, have a wonderful day!
PS – looking for something to do? Check out Ignite Waterloo tonight (in person or streaming) – I’m speaking.
After several years of looking for people to play jazz with me, I have found a group. Here are a couple of recordings from our fourth (?) practice this evening:
Wade in the Water
A bit faster than we ended up doing it but still fun. Again, some sketchy bits while we (I) figured out where things were falling but I’m pretty happy with where we seem to be going.
