Ten Years Ago Today

Eyewear's nostalgia knows no bounds....

On Sunday, February 23, 1997, I hosted a Vox Hunt cabaret show at the Cabaret Music Hall on St. Laurent Blvd. in Montreal, featuring writer Evelyn Lau, "MTV Poet of the Year Regie Cabico, local slam champ Emily S. Downing", as well as musicians Bionik, The Buzz Blast-Off Trio, and violinist Jonathan Crow, performing the work of Fritz Kreisler.

I recall sharing cigarettes with Heather O'Neill that evening, backstage. She had run to a shop to get them for us. She must have been 22 or so. Already brilliant and writing then, she recently published a highly popular new Canadian novel. I am happy for her.
