    The brewery scenes in Strange Brew were filmed at Pacific Western Brewery in Prince George, BC.
    I lived in PG, and played an anniversary (of the brewery) gig there.
    Funny movie!

    I agree with what has been said about Rush, Gordon Lightfoot, Leonard Cohen, Oscar Peterson, the Collectors, Neil Young, etc.

    Just want to add some metal like Sacred Blade/Othyrworld, Annihilator, Exciter, and Zaum's atmospheric doom.

    Remember Klaatu?
    The whole buzz was that they were actually the Beatles in disguise.

    From the last album Moe Koffman made. Moe plays flute, with Ed Bickert on guitar. As most of you know, he played a Tele with a Gibson humbucker in the neck position. (I met the tech who installed it for him).

    I don’t even pretend to be at the level EB is at here. However, I did go to hear them whenever I could.

    Both at the top of their game.

    I got to meet and chat with her a couple of years ago on a Saturday night. She got into my car when I was driving for Uber. It was dark and I didn’t recognize her right away, and the ride was on her friends account. We fell into talking about music. There was something about her face and voice that was familiar. I realised who she was just a few minutes before dropping her off in Yorkville and told her so. She seemed a little surprised that I recognized her. She is really very sweet and friendly.

    One more that fits with the above.

    I was neighbours with Lorraine for years, don’t think I ever saw her smiling.

    Cheers,
