Just call me a Plaskett-case

May 21st, 2009

It might be an understatement to say that I am a big fan of Joel Plaskett. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve seen him perform — from small-crowd solo shows to rocking band stints, the guy is a true entertainer. He makes a point of connecting with every town he visits, is a terrific storyteller, and never fails to give 100%.

His show tonight at the Bronson Centre was no exception; despite somewhat muffled sound and a few overzealous off-tempo clappers in the crowd, the whack of us enjoyed a stupendous show. Joel was joined onstage by his dad, backed up by Rose Cousins and Ana Egge, then also by the Emergency Band, including Peter Elkas (who, if you’ve paid attention, I’m a fan of too); he also threw in a couple of solo tunes. It was a great mix, overall, and he even got the room to belt out an ode about his earless cat, White Fang.

I will certainly be snagging Joel’s latest triple-cd album (entitled, of course, Three) ASAP.

I took a number of vids, but only have the oomph to upload this one tonight — the clearest & closest-up movie I took of the evening. Enjoy!
