Spring minTour 2018: Day 3

Up late, we roust Em then walk to La Belle Place where we meet Alex & Dei.

Back to Em’s, we pack up, off to Ottawa, Rte 40 across town stop & go, eventually we’re clear of the city. 417N to Ottawa. We arrive in time for dinner. park at the venue, ??? street is coffee houses end to end. Dei spots a pub, beer, local, and oysters from Nova Scotia. Back to the venue, a large garage behind the house at 5 Fairmont St, home of IMOO [Improvising Musicians Of Ottawa].

Dei orders oysters

Ballentine, Safina and Paul are already there. We load in, tonight’s lineup –

8:00pm – Accordion Conspiracy
9:00pm – DeiX
9:30pm – Elka Bong

Safina has invited 4 friends, they’re all sitting together in the last row. Maybe thirty people in the audience. Accordion Conspiracy play first, eclectic. A short intermission, we set up. Dei is in story-telling mode. Smaller space, smaller crowd, a broader dynamic range, and a big white wall for video. Elka Bong plays a good set.

We hang out for a bit, load out and follow Ballentine home, we turn in, it’s 11pm.
