|Saturday was my final day sledding, I was sad for the music to stop but my feet were tired from dancing and my liver was having trouble keeping up. After a free breakfast of scrambled eggs, beans, pulled pork and salsa at the Palomino, I headed over to Market Collective at the Ant Hill building in Kensington to check out some local vendors. Oh No! Yoko was about to perform as I was leaving and I didn’t want to look like a groupie watching them for the third time this weekend so I didn’t hang around.
I ended up back at Broken City in time for Dojo Warhorse, and was pleasantly surprised to find out that Dojo included members of the Dudes who I planned on seeing later tonight at the Plaza. I was lucky to see them play in a much more intimate atmosphere with a couple excellent musicians who aren’t on the Dudes roster. It was a full house at Broken City; I guess I stumbled on one of Calgary’s favorite local bands. The guitarist/vocalist from the Dudes was slaying guitar riffs, and keeping everybody entertained by joking with his friends in the front row. The keyboardist killed it with his soulful voice and up tempo keys. Everything was working. This has to be one of my favorite shows from the weekend.
