Spring miniTour: Day 3

April 8, 2017

We’re up reasonably early, coffee and more coffee. We load out, head out. North on I87 past Albany NY, up the eastern side of the Adirondacks, up the western side of Lake Champlain. We stop in Plattsburgh at Gus’ Diner for a late lunch.

Bonnie and Matt

Gus’ Diner

There’s a long, long line of cars waiting to enter Canada, a 30min wait. We are sent to Custom for inspection, another 45min wait while the Customs agents unpack and repack the van. They find nothing of interest, clear to go, Rte 15 N to Montreal.

Pont Jacque-Cartier

We arrive at Casa Obscura at 7pm. Craig and Emilie are already there and set up. Bernard and Emilie have vintage Korg synths, can’t wait for their set, but Craig is first, here’s the lineup –

A great show, great venue. We load out, over to Emilie’s. After unloading and securing the van, I unpack my PeterB miniSynth. Emilie and I setup on the kitchen table and jam until 3am.

Spring miniTour: Day 2

April 7, 2017

Up late, Bonnie makes breakfast. Scott and I run errands, return the rent-a-car.

My bed

We head out late afternoon, Mass Pike to New York Thruway S to New Paltz. Still overcast, spitting rain intermittently, chilly and raw. We arrive at Matt’s at 7pm, load in, setup in the living room. It’s Matt’s apartment, a small apartment, 1/3 of an empty house that’s become the DIY focal point for New Paltz and the lower Hudson Valley. Audience starts arriving around 8pm. Al and Dan arrive around 8:30pm, Al sets up. We play first at 9pm.

Spring miniTour: Day 1

April 6, 2017

First day of the tour spent getting organized, working on my movie projector and getting organized. I decide to bring my amplified drumkit, to play with Bonnie, and the PeterB miniSynth, to play with Emilie Mouchous when we get to Montreal.

Feed the plants, feed the birds, pick up the rent-a-car. Dinner with Mary Ann. After the traffic clears head out on I495 S to Rte 2 W to Turner’s Falls. I arrive early ‘round 7:30pm, unload. Bonnie and Scott arrive around 8pm, unload.

Brick House, Turner’s Falls MA

Bonnie

Audience

Still raining, it’s been raining all day. We’re waiting for Matt Robidoux, last to arrive and on first. He sets up two tables of stuff including – soda straws, sampler guitar, bells, mixer, and a computer. He’s hooked to an amp and a video projector, a performance piece using prerecording audio and video, orchestral!

Matt Robidoux

Next up Kriminsky, Stillman, Weisman & Weisman, not a legal firm. Eliot Krimsky, guitar; Robert Stillman – keys, vocals; Kurt and Chris Weisman, sax, flute and cello. Very nicely compositions, written and performed.
