There was something angry about the way my cell phone vibrated on my desk. It was Matt Good calling from New York. He wasn't happy.
"I'm stuck in a shitty hotel across from shitty LaGuardia. We were on the plane, ready to fly back from Toronto when the captain told us to get off. Something about high winds in Toronto. They're flying in a bigger plane because apparently ours was no good."
I sympathized. "At least you're not in that awful Air Canada departure gate area," I said.
"Yeah, but this still sucks. I just want to get home."
Matt was on his way back to Vancouver after playing a couple fo sold out gigs in London. This one was shot at The Lexington. (More fan videos here.)
There was also a gig in New York at a place called Joe's. "That was a weird one. Usually it's gritty and cool. But this time it was like playing for a Las Vegas audience who had only come for the buffet."
"So, um, are you calling just to pass the time before your next flight?"
"No, dumbass. I have a new album coming out. Wanna hear about it?"
