Just realized this was a Friday and not a Wednesday, so I can make a weekend of it and not miss work. I'm in!

Can't wait to see Canned Heat earlier in the day.
Has anybody checked them out before?
Do they still got 'it'?

I'll be there. (Shrugs)...festival setlist, plus dealing with festival idiots...I don't usually like the hip at bluesfest all that much.

rain/thunder expected around 7 and at 10.... usually not 100% accurate timing so maybe we'll be ok. Or not!

It was really wet. Rained like crazy at the end. Everyone soaked like they'd been swimming. No defined encore, just a set, FC, set. Long Time Running was great. Wheat Kings also pretty good, almost in the complete dark with the rain.

Bobcaygeon was on the setlist. I don't know why they skipped it.

Got front row. Dude beside me caught both a setlist and Johnny's drumsticks, lucky tall bastard. Photos to follow!

Great show. Very similar to Toronto show except no Bobcagen and Blow At High Dough instead of Little Bones at end. And theg played Chagrin Falls. Just kidding. By the end the stage was flooded and Paul's guitar was soaked and Gordie's hat too. I was worried it might get cut short like in Buffalo that one time. The wind also damaged the screen curtains so they could.not be used after the start of FC set thus Wheat Kings was a dark stage. Crowd was good. Loud as hell on NOIS, ABAC, WHEAT KINGS, AND BAHD. Band sounded great top to bottom. High Dough sounded magical.
