At 5pm you can see it is still light out and that has always been a liberating experience for me, that first day of the 9-5 drudgery where you walk out and there is a sliver of light still in the sky at 5:01 and the world just somehow seems like a better place, that there is something to look forward to, that life will go on, and it’s all so damn good.
So that is sort of what The Jam feels like these days – an uncanny little happening full of warmth and possibilities and a little light that can be seen, maybe as just a dot right now, at the end of the usually long and cold winter tunnel.

It’s really her Jam, but most of the time she doesn’t seem to care.
And a mandatory “Gens du Pays” for birthday girl, Monelle Blouin!
Closing it out with The Girardins!
Jerome LeBlance and Ray Garneau pounding it out.

I have a potential job offer that may keep me away from the Jam in the next couple of weeks but that does not mean that there will not be any music at
