You too can look like Ryan Guldemond

Recall my Beyond Awesome posting of 30th December 2011? Where I felt all smug for figuring out that Ryan Guldemond was wearing a T-shirt listing the J.J. Bean coffee-shop branches around Vancouver? Well, today I discovered that they’re available to Joe Public and elephants quiet and noisy alike from said coffee-selling establishments. Not cheap at $25 (including taxes), and it remains to be seen if they help your singing or guitar playing, but no more expensive than Mother Mother’s own T-shirts.

Let them drink coffee! (Or tea… but they didn’t sell it by the pot, at the corner of Bute. Philistines.)

Beyond Awesome!

After a couple of months of waiting, I finally got to see Mother Mother play live today at the Commodore in Vancouver. A smaller venue than I’d imagined, but a great atmosphere.
Excellent setlist including all their well known tracks and one off the up-coming new album.
A few photos from my middle offspring who also attended…

If you were wondering about the list on lead singer Ryan Guldemond’s T-shirt, they’re the locations of Vancouver’s J.J. Bean coffee-shops. Good places to get free WiFi if you’re close to the end of your monthly limit.

The encore finished with the great “Arms Tonite

I felt a lot younger leaving than I did entering… you knew I would!
