Then was the headliner, Julia Massey and half of the Five Finger Discount (their drummer Dom was off on a Hawaiian vacation):
And since this is me, I made an animated GIF of them. Of course.
After that was Terrapin Productions, who was joined by the FFD’s bassist Geoff:
One thing that was very nice about the night (other than the musics) was the fact that when I looked around the rather-packed room I knew probably 90% of the people there.
But what was especially special was the fact that we brought wee baby Avery with us for her first real outing at only one week of age. She ended up being the real star of the show! It was for many people the first time they had seen her. She was passed from friendly hand to friendly hand all night long.
Even rock stars couldn’t resist the urge of the cuteness of the wee beb:
In fact, Avery is so beloved that Julia Massey & The Five Finger Discount actually wrote a song for her before she was born. It is called “Montana Capri” because before we announced the name of Avery we used Montana Capri as her codename. This was the first time the song was every performed live, and it was performed for Avery:
How many babies have songs written for them? And how many babies have the song performed for them live on stage in their first week of life? We have a very, very lucky wee beb.
Unfortunately we had to leave while The Old Salt was setting up due to the wee beb having been out for a couple of hours. But it was a pretty amazing night.
