Back to the bar, every Thursday

[British Invasion]When I worked as a full-time professional drummer in the mid-1990s, we often played small pubs and bars around the province for not a lot of money. Things have changed: most of our shows now are weddings and corporate events, in town, at large hotels and other facilities, and they pay well.

The pub shows are much better too. In the last ten years, brew pubs such as the Central City Brewing Company in Surrey have spring up around B.C., upping the ante for the kind of place we could play. So, starting tomorrow (Thursday the 24th), we'll be playing every Invasion Thursday at Central City, which is right next to the Surrey Central SkyTrain station.

If you get there before we start at 10:00 p.m., admission is free. After that, its $5—shades of our shows in 1994. I also have a small number of people I can add to our guest list, so if you're interested, e-mail me.
