If you listen to NPR / PRI in the U.S., you already know Jian Ghomeshi as an award-winning broadcaster, writer, musician, producer and host of the multimedia phenomenon known simply as “Q” — or as The Washington Post calls it, “the most popular new arts and culture radio show in America”. If you are Canadian, or at all familiar with Canadian media, pop culture, or the CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation), then you know Jian Ghomeshi is a household name in that country — and he is well on his way to becoming one in this country as you read this.

Well, that was fun. Thanks to everyone who came out to our showcase this past Sunday at the 2014 Mo-Wave Festival in Seattle! At one point during the show, I looked out and saw Christeene, Justin Bond, Carletta Sue Kay and the boys from Night Cadet in the audience — which was really special.
I adored everyone I got to know this weekend and I look forward to seeing you all again soon! Thank you again to Mo-Wave organizers Jodi Ecklund, Markus Wilson and Seth Garrison for having us perform. Chop Suey recorded the audio and my drummer AC filmed our set, so there will be live clips sometime soon, which I will share. Here are some of the photo highlights to tide you over:Tweet
