The EMERGENCY's 10th Anniversary has gone nearly unnoticed by one and all ; we'd be remiss not to reminisce a bit for ol' tymes sake , eh ? We'll be posting some photos from throughout the years ( Those hardscrabble years ... when we never knew where our next buy-out was coming from ! When you slept three in a room ! Instead of two ) . That's all in the past now . Now , one can sit back and savour the rewards of hard work and determination from the comforts of home , and look back with satisfaction at a job well done . And forward , to a job tomorrow morning painting Steph's folks condo . Dig the memories .

Ana Egge performs Talco Girl by Steve James . After the success's of Massey Hall in Toronto , La Sala Rosa in Montreal , Bronson Centre in Ottawa , and The Rebecca Cohn and Fleet Club in the dirty old town of Halifax herself , the tour lands gracefully with a late night singsong and sponge bath ( some lugubrious liquor ) at Tribeca . Ana was the first to get up and get down . Check it out .

The audience was beautiful , ready to listen , and ready to rock . So many friends , as with all TO shows . A grand introduction from Jeff Cohen was only topped by his , and Tara's , invitation to unwind afterwards at their pad . Which we did , along with many others . Back to the Delta at a million o clock and straight to the Campbell y Joliffe show on floor 26 .
Thanks to Paul ( `s Boutique ) Babiak for saving the day when the bass pedal exploded during You Let Me Down . Shame , had to abandon the maraca .
And thanks to everyone for making the shows in Ottawa and Monteal just as note worthy as Massey was . Thank you Barbarella`s . Thanks Lamp . Thanks Cuccina on St. Laurent . Thanks Bronson Centre . Thanks La Sala Rosa . Thanks JPE Nation .

Meanwhile back at the ranch , what a rocking time was had at Tribeca 'tother night . It was the closest CBGB's vibe I've felt since ... cbgb's ? Nah , the Marz bar was better . ... more like the Double Deuce on Hollis with a dash of Flamingo stage 1 ( Grafton ) . Tom Smith got so excited when we joined him on stage for Warsaw that he popped 2 strings on his fancy new Taylor acoustic . I lent him mine and he blew our minds with the original composition , Long Sleeves . The Skank Williams were next . Adorably fantastic . Then Dawn and Dave with I Remember You by Steve Earle , and on to The True Love Rules ; 3 piece , dead simple , new danelectro pedal , step ... 1 , 2 , 3 , and boom ... newbies , ' I Manipulated ' , ' We Don't Belong ', and ' Wide Boy ' . Rolly topped the evening off , joining the band onstage where we blew the lid off with his ' Raining On Me ' , Steve Jones style . Zwick did a great job FOH . Late night come down drink , home to bed . Magic .

Day 2 ; Precious , Precious , Precious and Lazy Bones are saddled , and Pine , Pine , Pine falls right in line .
Day 1 ; there's much work to be done but now it's begun , coming along nicely ( what else ? ) , Gone , Gone , Gone and Run , Run , Run .
Not long now and Joel hits the road with father Bill , Rose and Ana , and fills any cracks in the country with his hearty musical soup . If you have the opportunity , step out and take it in . It's going to be a genuine whistle stop from Esquimalt through the Canadian Rockies in a Buster Keaton-like rail ride across the prairies to the east where the sun rise back lights the old home . Handkerchiefs will wave and local guys and gals will reluctantly part with meltwater filling up their bootprints . Spring will blossom once again under the feet of all our compatriots and you'll be pressing the ticket stubs between pages in the book of love . Rock on . mmm , good wine .

SLOAN with Dave Marsh's True Love Rules this friday night , The Grawood , Dalhousie Uni . That turned out to be a grand night all round . Unusual number of handcuffs and arrests but most remained at liberty and had a real cool time . Sloan were on fine form ; some nice hardcore slams and a rocking visit from Patricks pop on keys . Radio MRCH broadcasted all night from the merch pavillion with hype man Kevin ( Skip Lowe ) Hilliard divining the 50/50 draw .
The True Love Rules also laid down a bitchin' 8 song chicken dinner with the hotness supplied by the ladies of Skank Williams on Move You Around . Magic !

Trouble about recalling everybody is just that . All sorts .
Downtown on a Wednesday night in January is for the lucky . Stand on Argyle street , cozy and spacious and chatty and quiet . You hear talk about hockey and guitars , old concerts and this coming summer . Donstock 4 . 15 paid and a guest list as big . Man , that's life in Halifax in January . Flick yer butt in the gutter James Cook spat in .
Skank William's have rejuvenated my faith in a stage , and a guitar/banjo .
Al Tuck is downstairs asleep . It was a late one .
