I’m going to see PJ on Monday in Toronto at the ACC. 20 years of their music….I’ll be honest, I fell off their radar after Vitalogy. I remember them so fondly when I saw them open for RHCP at the Concert Hall when I was 18 with Jakub. ’Alive’ had such great songs.
When I heard they were doing a 20th anniversary tour that also supported a docu directed by Cameron Crowe (Say Anything and Singles fame)which ironically is being showcased also at TIFF this weekend – I felt excited.
Mudhoney is opening for them and apparently Chris Cornell is also touring with them to support Temple of the Dog sets. I’m sure its going to be very emotional for both fans and the band. ‘Hunger Strike?’. Sigh…man its lovely.
I’ve been having a really hard time with music of late. As much as it is such a big part of my life it also is really hard for me to listen to right now. This summer in particular has been one of the biggest challenges I’ve had to deal with in awhile. Of course music just has to be sewn into that fabric when I need it so much in terms of providing me with self care. I can’t even go near it even in my own flat. My stereo has been silent for a long time with tons of CD’s looking onto it so forlornly.
Bottom line…I’m working on it. I’m trying my best to lean into those sharp edges and find the love again with music. First step…this weekend I do some work on my ipod.
This maybe my last show for awhile. I gave up my Portishead tickets as part of a divorce. Yep – not going there. Most painful thing I’ve had to go through in awhile and I’m not talking about the tickets. It wasn’t a good end to a tough summer.
I’m going with an old friend to PJ. Oddly enough from the time I was in love with PJ during university. It’ll be nice to hang with Sasha…we haven’t seen each other in maybe 12 years. Hmmmm….kinda like me and PJ. Here’s to new beginnings.
I promise to take pix and post after Monday. I’m digging out my plaid, mini skirt, combat boots tonight.
Yours in fashion,
