Willie Nile played the Carleton in Halifax last night and he was flippin' amazing . Great songwriter . We know because we made it to the show ; straight from the 7 am lobby call in Surrey to the 8 pm arrival at Stanfield International . Wasn't a whole lot left in the gas tank after the weekend and a great show at the Surrey festival but Willie summoned the reserve out of us with two highly entertaining sets . Bit of rockin' guitar , bit of piano , whole lotta talent , it was fab . Nice work from Robbie Crowell too . Big props to Mike Campbell for his inspired booking . http://www.willienile.com/main.html

Thanks to everyone at the Surrey show saturday night . Good times , eh ?
