Wagons Bushfire Fundraiser

23/23/2020

with James Ellis singing the songs of Merle Haggard
Night Cat, Thursday 13th February 2020

I have not been going out to gigs during the week since I moved as I cannot get home.

This one was special so I made an effort for it and planned when I had to leave as I know from going out in Fitzroy during the week back in the day that trams drop off after a certain time and that you can miss trams on three different lines if you do not get there in time.

I did take a matted print of Henry with Gordon for the auction later but it never ended up being sold. They did sell the custom signed guitar later for $2000 to raise money.

James Ellis was the opening for the night and had a few people dancing as there is a two step crowd who go to his shows down the road at Rooks' Return.

Some people introduced themselves to me at the gig. I think maybe they know me from instagram as I saw their photos of the gig later. I have a lot of people who know me these days but I do not know them at all. Mark Tuckerbag Dawson forgot my name hahaha. Was ten years before Richard Blaze asked who I was. Yes, Henry Wagons has always been like that.

This is closer than I have been to the band since that gig at the Marquis of Lorne where the only place to stand was in between the drummer and the guitarist. Hopefully someone handed Si Francis a drink during the show. Not sure if I would go to a regular gig here as they don't even start until midnight, I'm not a teenager!

I got to the city reasonably early but late for a weekday. Got home late but I wasn't doing anything except getting the VLine train back to Drouin that day. Too hot!
