Dar and Moxy it had to be one of the best combos ever. I loved the venue, intimate, no smoke, no drunkards, no standing up (I had a long day at work). I thought I'd also give you Dar's set list plus Moxy commentary to Mike's setlist
When I Was a Boy-
What Do You Hear in these Sounds-
Are You Out There
Oh Canada, Girls - new
As Cool as I Am
Christians and the Pagans
Another Mystery- new
When the guys came out Dave was in yellow, Murray in blue, Mike in red and Jian as almost always in black. The mainly primary color scheme made my partner think of a certain South Park ep. If you know SP you'll get the joke if not skip down. The ep where cartman has a birthday party and the kids are handing him the Mega Men which are in exactly the same colors as the lads are dressed. So my boyfriend in his best Cartman impression says, "oh Stan you got me the yellow Mega Moxy thank you, you can go and have cake."

All of them started making squirrel jokes amd when you just thought Mike had got them back on track. Mike started a squirrel song. LOL > MORPHEE - such a great song but no sleepy sighs in the middle maybe because it's hard on the voice and I gathered the fruvirus had struck > MINNIE - a very political version full of Cdn references that you'd have to be poli sci student to keep track of > PORK [Mur+Dave] - WOW I only go to TO shows and I've never heard that one before. Murray got his hat all rolled up in the front then went over to Dave took the acoustic guitar out of his hands and went back to his side of the stage. Dave seemed to have forgotten what song they were doing but got his banjo and his hat. Murray sucking on his teeth cracked me up so badly. That and the line about the three kids "Caine, Issac and Chris" my sig others' name is Chris and I started laughing again. If anyone has the lyrics to this could could tell me where I could get a look at them or tell me where the song comes from. > TODAY'S THE DAY- great preamble by Jian about how Harris is kicking the crap out of Ont [Ji+Mike] > MARION-Before Mur started to tell the story he said "a story by Ann Elk- the Python reference made me lose it again. If you were there the chick barking out laughing was me :) > SPLATTER > HOLD - very cool discussion about Jian's fav book "Love in the Timje of Cholera" I should go out and read it. Though Jian did admit if he'd stayed true to his beloved like the character in the novel it would seem pretty stalker-ish in todays world > MPG > AUTHORS - the great "Bovril" substitution but in deference to being in the church no "crucifixion" line > PSYCHO Get in the Car > ---- > MICH > ---- > KING > GREEN- during the Beatles part Jian pointed to Mike who had been crushed by Mr Cheese's cruelty and Mike did this weird oinking noise and was sort of bent over then he'd shot up and yell Caroline. Does anyone other than Mike get the allusion? > DRINK [off-mic]
