Hail To Davidson

Craig Davidson's The Saturday Night Ghost Club New Book

I was just online browsing for images of this crazy hail storm on highway 22 when I found this other link and then another link. In the second link I found some really good information that I feel compelled to share. The same author who wrote Precious Cargo has written a new novel titled The Saturday Night Ghost Club and it comes out this August. Well, look how things turned around there! From hail to a new Davidson book. Things are look up!

“Saturday 30th June, 4-9pm at Station Square

A live interactive painting event at Station Square!

Over the years almost 40 dumpster and recycling bins have been transformed into works of art. At this live painting weekend, artists will prep dumpsters and start painting on the evenings of Thursday and Friday, with pop-up DJs building the atmosphere. The main event is on Saturday from 4-9pm with a beer tent, DJs, kids crafts, and chance for all to join in painting the community Dumpster.

Come out to watch artist’s visions come to life and vote for your favorite – there’s a $500 people’s choice award up for grabs for the winning design.

This year the Dumpster painting will be an evening event with DJs, a beer garden and kids’ Dumpster Trail activity.

Come by between 4 and 9pm to see the dumpsters painted live and contribute to the community dumpster.

Music Break : New Neko Case Hell-On

Neko Case almost made me cry big ugly tears when I saw her perform in Vancouver ten years ago. She has a strong, beautiful voice that fills a room…and my heart. Neko Case has a new album out and the first song I heard Hell-On did not disappoint. Enjoy your day!
