Canadian clubs

A couple of shows in Canada on this date: Toronto’s Phoenix in 2006 with Why? and Montreal’s Club Soda the following year with The Horse’s Ha.  Demonstrating the unpredictability that’s been our hallmark for nearly 30 years, not only do we play a Neil Young song during both encores, it’s the same one: “Prisoners of Rock ‘n’ Roll.”  (At least we add a French-language “Et Moi, Et Moi, Et Moi” for the Québécois.)  No Neil Young number at our 2004 swing state show in Kansas City, despite a multitude of his fans on stage: Rick Rizzo, Doug McCombs and David Kilgour (and perhaps Eugene Mirman, though I think he leans more towards Jethro Tull).  But we only missed by a day–“Hey Babe” was part of the previous night’s set in Ames, Iowa.
