Fun at The Fair, Rock at The Rainbow Room and Geoff's Birthday This Weekend at Jack's

Our road trip to Port Alberni last weekend was a blast. Playing in the sun at The Alberni District Fall Fair was sweet! Thanks to Lance LaPoint for setting that up and thanks to Andrew from Sound Advice for making us sound good. While we were at the fair I got to do a short interview on 93.3 The Peak, too. Thanks Jolie. Also I just discovered that our gig was in the paper.. FUN!

After our afternoon at The Fall Fair we went and checked out the salmon ladder at Stamp Falls then went and sound checked at The Rainbow Room. A really cool small room with a great sound system and killer staff. They captured some videos from our show... The audio isn't amazing since the mix was set up for the live sound in the room but it's pretty cool to have. Check it out;

This Friday and Saturday we're back home at Jack's in Tofino, should be a good weekend. My birthday was this week and I hope you come down to celebrate with us. Then, as usual it's jam night on Monday

See you soon bacon-lovers!

Port Alberni Fall Fair, The Rainbow Room and Funky Bass

This coming weekend Ballistic Pig is hitting the road and heading to Port Alberni for a couple gigs on Saturday September 7th. In the early afternoon (1ish) we'll be playing a set at The Alberni District Fall Fair, then we'll be heading down to The Rainbow Room for the night. So if you happen to be in Port, we'd love to see you. (If you're in the Wickaninnish Inn Pro Am golf tournament our stripped down arrangement will be playing there as well on Friday)

On another note, I've been getting a little funky on my bass this weekend. If you're desperate for entertainment I recorded some fun stuff:

Hope to see you this weekend in Port Alberni and tomorrow (Monday) night at Jack's in Tofino for jam night. -Geoff
