My brother and I returned from Ontario yesterday and a rousing performance from Stompin’ Tom. It was a rowdy (but not unfriendly) and patriotic crowd. Tom’s voice sounded outstanding as always and he was fantastic at connecting with his fans. He struck a good balance between interacting with them and ignoring them when they didn’t fit the plan of the show. Probably one of the top five shows I’ve ever seen.
On the way back, I filled up on Chicken Paprikas at Tony Packo’s (again) and built this crazy structure at COSI Toledo:
Then my brother knocked it down (at my urging, and while being videoed).
