Le Grand Nord Blanc

So we just played a GREAT show in Muskegon, Michigan. Awesome crowd....... and we're on the bus headed to the Chicago airport.... and then we're flying to Montreal, Quebec, Canada!

This will be my first time playing a show in the french-speaking part of Canada. I've visited Montreal once, but only for a weekend. Now that I've seen so much of the United States, I'm almost ashamed that I never explored Quebec more when I lived just a few short hours drive away. The Old Port District in Montreal has SO much character. Cobblestone streets. Centuries of history.

Unfortunately, this trip falls on a somewhat inopportune moment.... the finale of LOST!

If you're into LOST as much as I am, then you know that there isn't much that can keep you from watching the finale tomorrow night. I'm just lucky we play in the afternoon tomorrow - because from 7pm EST on, I'm gettin' my LOST on. I might even have an iced capp and a box of Timbits with me! Yeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaah!

Who here's into LOST. Are you excited? If our hotel has internet I'll most likely blog and tweet while it's all going down... Can't wait!!!

I'll admit, I laughed when I read this. As another person who loves LOST I'll say that I'm totally stoked for the finale, but sad that it's coming to an and. But I guess it's like they say that all good things must come to an end. *sigh* Sadly, I will not be able to watch it because I will be at my brothers Baccalaureate. *tear* Actually, my mom and sister have recently become obsessed with the show, but they're only on the second season so they won't want to watch it. Question: I Googled it, but couldn't find the answer; what does "Le Grand Nord Blanc" mean?

p.s. Do you actually *really* read these comments? (This is not a snide/rhetorical question, I really am curious.)

Ah! I am also a fellow Canadian who is feeling bittersweet but undeniably excited for the LOST finale. I was also in a bit of a pickle because I am volunteering at the Historymaker conference here in BC and I thought it went until Sunday night but thankfully I finish up in the afternoon as well! On the other hand... Those of us on the west coast only get to watch 3 hours after Quebec does, eh? I guess I'll have to hold off on checking my Twitter!

You are so funny sometimes! LOST finale is gonna be awesome. It better be or a few million people are going to put a hit out on those 2 creator guys! (j/k)

Having moved to the West Coast last fall makes it seem I'll be 2 hours behind everyone else watching in my old Central time! May have to ignore twitter tonight!

That show was AWESOME last night! It was probably one of the funnest I've ever been to.
I have to admit that "Lord Stanley" was one of the funniest and most aggravating moments all night but you guys rocked. Thanks for all the fun!
