Joel Plaskett Emergency!

Alderney Landing, Dartmouth Waterfront, July 20, 2007
Special guests: Gordie Johnson of Big Sugar and Peter Elkas

Joel takes over the drums for "Fashionable People".

This concert was super awesome, and I was comfortable enough to enjoy it's full rockitude. They did not "White Stripes" us and make us wait in inhumane conditions for 45 minutes before they started their set. Although, I still enjoyed the White Stripes concert, I probably would have liked it more if I didn't feel like death.
There was also some great free form stuff where the band fondly remembered Bob Switzer of Taz Records and how all their records smelled like smoke, which was odd, as I literally had the same conversation about Bob and Taz about an hour earlier with my friend at this concert. It was fun to join in and shout "Hey Bob Switzer!" over and over.
The following is some video I shot of the band playing "Hot For Teacher" with Gordie Johnson.
