Still, caught JF Robitaille at Market Lane. There was a little delay because there were no power until the city guy came by.
Robitaille played a brief set, ran out of songs, but played on a cover of Simon & Garfunkel's "Blues Run the Game".
Other notable things, there were loads of kids at the park, eating their lunches with their teachers. The type of folksy tales of love and lost by Robitaille went over the heads of the toddliers.
Wednesday evening was spent at Supermarket (near Spadina and College) with Jon Bryant, from, Canada, but his heart is in Seattle, Washington. He sings softly about his experiences, and even wrote a song about Ontario, on a bus ride to and fro the city.
Everywhere were listed as Everywhere and Ross Mundo were like power rock. Played "Uh Oh", as well as other songs from their self-titled album. Highlight was a cover of The Beatles' "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds".
TimeGiant had brought their fans, who enjoyed rocking out to these guys. They seem like hard rock/borderline metal, and they love performing on stage. They look and sound like they are having a great time, but unfortunately, their music weren't really my cup of tea.
I was mainly at Supermarket to see Washington. Missed her in Minneapolis, when she unfortunately, fell ill. So, finally got a chance to see her last night.
It was just Megan Washington and her keyboard, so, as I suspected, she didn't do her more upbeat pop songs, "Sunday Best", "Teenage Fury" or her DiVinyls cover, "I Touch Myself". She did a pretty emotional version of her song, "Swallows".
As you can see from her setlist, she did a Rufus Wainwright cover song. The story behind that is pretty funny, as were all her little stories, but apparently Wainwright dismissed himself from Megan's company by stating, "excuse me, but I have to pee, from my penis."
Glad to have caught her, I'll be seeing her again tonight at Lee's Palace with Evan Dando and Juliana Hatfield. Should be a wonderful evening.
