Happy Easter! The world is going to heck in a basket, and how are you going to spend your end times? By ignoring reality and immersing yourself in the heart-wrenchingly joyous tunes that have come out of Quebec, of course!
The Tranzac is open again, which means we can meet in person for music, though Tranzac still has COVID policies in place to protect their staff, performers and guests. Short answer: masks are still required in the Tranzac, though you can take them off briefly to take a sip of your beverage. Performers (that’s us) must wear masks unless your instrument requires being unmasked. The bartenders rule, so adhere to their requests or be turfed in a most ungainly fashion! Do be vaccinated and boosted! Don’t be COVID-positive or symptomatic. Do be considerate of all our fellow community members!
All that being said, we can gather for tunes this coming Sunday in the warm bosom of the newly refurbished Southern Cross Lounge at the Tranzac Club. A birdy has told me that on-street pay and display will not be enforced on Sunday, so park like the mad people that you are!
|Date:||Sunday, April 17th, 2022|

Note the new time! We are only running two hours so the staff have time to wipe away all our nasty germs before the next act appears.
Finally, if your name is Derek, I have some information for you that may cause you to be a bit unsettled this weekend. While searching the public domain digital archive at the Toronto Public Library for an appropriately-themed photo to feature in today’s blog post, there are a number I’ve discarded as being too sweet, a bit odd, or possibly inappropriate. I did find one titled, “Don’t look now, Derek” which I felt I had to share as it captures at least the general unease that I have felt these last few years. And so, here it is in all its glory.
