Party hearty rock-out weekend

My band has been playing every Thursday at the Central City Brewing Company in Surrey, B.C. since late February, and it's been going well—last week's show, coming before the Easter weekend, was particulary busy and fun. This upcoming weekend, March 31, April 1 and 2, we're there the whole weekend, starting around 9:00 p.m. each night.

While we're unlikely to play any Crowded House songs (although anything's possible), I'll be silently dedicating the weekend to Paul Hester, that band's drummer, who appears on my top drummers list. Hester, who had apparently long fought clinical depression—but who seemed to have been in good spirits recently—committed suicide earlier this week in a suburban Melbourne park after talking a walk with his dogs. Mine will be a small tribute among many.

Don't worry, though: The Neurotics will be as silly and wacky as ever. That was the way Hester always played too.
