Fun Weekend with The Steadies

Geoff as a walking poster for the show
Well folks, we finally got to play the Tofino Legion. a legendary stage for sure, even if the days of its biggest concerts may seem to be over.  We were fortunate to share the stage with some super great guys, The Steadies. I've been a fan of Earl's bass playing since the Wide Mouth Mason days so I loved it. After a big weekend with that show and a killer jam at Jack's we're happy to be taking a weekend off but we have an outdoor show in the Tofino village green on August 9th as part of the Friends of Clayoquot Sound's 20th Anniversary of the 1993 mass arrests then we're back to Jack's for a weekend of RAWK!

Earl and Nick put the finishing touches on the stage at The Legion
A big thanks to The Legion folks and everyone who came out, we had a blast and it looks like The Steadies are planning to return this fall to support a new album.

Ballistic Pig opening for The Steadies
And the main event

The guys came out to our usual Monday night jam at Jack's, too. Earl didn't play (we'll get to that shortly) but Jason and Juice sure rocked out with the locals;

We've got a few gigs coming up as I mentioned; August 9th's FOCS event and August 16th ant 17th at Jack's;
Speaking of posters, we gave The Steadies the world famous Ballistic Pig poster treatment;

 And speaking of treatment, Earl fractured his hand surfing! Get well buddy and good luck powering through the rest of the tour.
Well, thanks for checking out the blog. Hope to see you at a show, soon. -Geoff
