T.O. Rustfest

Yes, it's going to happen. Tuesday or Wednesday night, Powderfinger will be in from Phili. We will be meeting somewhere for a drink along with Zain. We would love to be joined by other TO rusties. The plan for now is to go to the:

Blue Cellar Room
469 Bloor Street West (at Spadina).
If anyone knows of a better place, please let us know. I will post final plans to Rust when we know them. Looking forward...

Report by Mike Kaplan...

I guess I'm the first to report in, so here goes. Zain and I met at The Blue Cellar Room right at 6pm. Powderfinger (Mark) followed in around half an hour later. Andy joined in after that. Basically, we had a drink and some dinner and talked Neil. We explored many aspects of Neil, from the Rust List and how good it is, to this summer's setlists. It's nice to talk with fellow Rusties once in a while.

I met Mark and Zain at a record show over a year ago. They struck me as being very kind individuals who just love the music. That record show was the last time I'd seen them. When I came onto Rust, I found Mark and Zain. I have kept in touch with both so it was nice to finally meet again. It was also nice to meet Andy. He is a very classy guy.

Mark came well prepared from Phili. He had bootlegs, books, magazines and of course tapes for me that we agreed to trade. He was very eager to share all this with us. There's not much else to say. It was just 4 Neil fanatics shooting the shit for nearly 3 and a half hours. I hope to have a RustFest before I go away in late June, a BBQ or something. Again, many thanks to Zain, Mark and Andy for a memorable evening.

Keep On Rustin'
