Last night was really amazing zing zing. Thank you Miramichi New Brunswick.
Tonight Aug 3, I play 2 shows in Halifax
Nova Scotia. The city of my birth.
6:30 pm and 9pm at The Carleton. Someone please bring me some strong cough syrup.
Then 2 shows tomorrow night Aug 3 Wednesday/ at The Carleton in Halifax Nova Scotia
1st show is at 6:30
2nd show at 9pm
We had to turn it into 2 shows because tickets sales were great. So now you can bring your friends. Tix still available!
Thurs and Friday Aug 4 & 5 – I play Lunenburg Folk Harbour Festival in lively Lunenburg Nova Scotia
Sat and Sun Aug 6 & 7 – I play Red Rock Ontario at Live From The Rock Festival
Then Wednesday Aug 10 I play Nashville Tn at City Winery (upstairs lounge)
Then I sleep
Right when the needle hit the groove I knew everything was gonna be alright. The vases on the bookshelves rattled like earthquake victims. People started fruggin and doing the hippy shake.
By the time the pizzas were delivered I was stoned on horny weed and threw my wallet in the fire and screamed “someone else pay for the pies, my private parts itch.”
A crazy lady lit a pack of Chinese firecrackers and everyone screamed and started ducking behind furniture.
The coppers arrived and tried to shut down the party but the people weren’t having it. There was a naked girl on the roof flying a kite and smoking a corncob pipe. There was a helicopter above shining a spotlight on the naked lady’s pale skin and you could see her tribal palm tree tattoos. Some of the words were in Sanskrit and I was able to read them because Brigham Young gave me some special google translate glasses.
I started wishing I wasn’t me. I wanted to be a dog and hump people’s legs. But then I looked in the mirror and I was only me except I was paler and skinnier than usual and my eyes were as saggy as my jowly jowls.
So I entered a tunnel and realized that coupons were useless because they lured me into buying needless oddities that odd people need. So I prayed for forgiveness and forgave the forgiven and I drifted off to sleep on a cloud of ether.
Now I lay me down too steep.
I pray the bored my hole to peep.
And if I cry before I bake.
I pray the sword my pole too deep.
Have a good time with your Monday. You’re only allotted so many. Use them wisely.
Sunday July 31
My concert tonight at Club Passim in Cambridge Massachusetts will be broadcast live. I start at 9 eastern time. But don’t miss Lee Harvey Osmond who opens the show at 8. Here’s the link
Thanks Toronto. I love you. What a fun night at The Dakota. That room is something special. Great crowd. Lots of laughter. My pal Brian joined me a a few songs and shredded his guitar notes like a genie. And I got to see my cousin Jennifer and her amazing partner Nigel!
I even slow danced under the glow of a disco ball with the great Richard Flohill. I held him in my arms as I sang Colour My World by Chicago. A moment that may have permanently scarred both of us.
I love my job.

What was I doing here? Undressing the other guy?

The OTHER guy is Rob Little aka Mokie. My best pal.
Hey- I screwed up the other day when I said my 2nd Carleton Halifax show was being added for Thursday Aug 4. That was not right.
It’s impossible to do that. My Lunenburg Nova Scotia show is later than I thought.
So – we’ve added a second show on Wed Aug 3. Due to overwhelming demand I have agreed to do two shows in one night. Yes, you read that correctly. 2 shows in one night.
A 6:30pm show and a 9pm show. Wednesday Aug 3. Carleton Halifax.
This second show already has limited tickets so act now or forever hold your niece. Or is it peace? Or is it piece? Forever hold your lease. (On life)
What the hell AM i doing in this photo?

I’m in Toronto. The Padres are in town playing The Blue Jays. (Cool)
I went to the game last night. Pads lost. (Not cool)
I ran into Rocket From The Crypt at the game! (Cool) they were sitting right near where I was sitting. What are the odds of that? In Toronto of all places. Hey there’s a pic of me with Pete from Rocket!
I got to go down on the field for batting practice! (Cool)
I get to go see Rocket From The Crypt tonight at Lee’s Palace. (Cool)

Check this out –
My show in Halifax on Wednesday Aug 3rd is sold out.
I repeat sold out!
So we’ve added a second Halifax show. Thursday Aug 4. The waiting list for tix is already long so get on it today. Some of you may be saying “Steve, you’re already playing Lunenburg Nova Scotia on Aug 4.” I know this. However- I play early enough in the day that I will easily be able to play a show that night at The Carleton.
Contact The Carleton immediately to the get yer Tix because there is already a list of folks wanting Tix. The reason I was able to book this extra show is because Mike Campbell flew out from Halifax to see the game. And so did my agent Adam Bauer! So wenaddednthe extra whilst sitting at the game.
Does that make the game a write off?
I guess they like me because I was born there.
Then I play Lunenburg again the next day on Friday.
I hope this all makes sense.
I’m sick of politics. I want to play music and spread joy. It’s what I know how to do.
