BarCode @ McGonagalls Pub

A few weeks after the fact, but nevertheless, I  thought I’d take a few moments to comment on our May 29th return to McGonagalls Pub.  It had been a few months since the last time we were at Brantford‘s premier Scottish pub, but we were able to pack ’em in, even seeing a few faces we hadn’t yet seen out to one of our shows in 2010.

Although the setlist hadn’t varied much since our last appearance, we were able to get together the night before and bring together the old Hollies classic, ‘Long Cool Woman (In A Black Dress)’, as well as throwing out a few numbers not done in awhile, like ‘Last Kiss’ by Frank J. Wilson and the Cavaliers (an old BarCode standard).

It’s the start of patio season and every year that tends to worry me a bit.  If the weather is nice, it’s becomes hard to get people to come inside and stay for an entire night of music.  Luckily, McGonagalls has a small patio at the back and it was cool enough that we were able to have the back door wide open and entertain those inside and out.

Also, a special thanks to George Blahitka for coming out again and filming us!  He seemed to cover all the angles and we can’t wait to check out some of the footage.  Watch for it on the BarCode YouTube channel at  We hope to put some up soon (with George’s permission, of course).

Since the gig was four weeks ago, that’s about all I can remember for now.  I promise I’ll start posting a lot sooner after shows and give the writing a little more meat.
