This country act is "the dark horse" of the musical race, to use a gambling term. Here is the lowdown on the Corb Lund You Tube clip attached:
Corb played Toronto for two nights at the venerable Horseshoe Tavern. This is a famous club downtown which has featured all kinds of musical acts - from The Police on one of their first tours, to Stompin' Tom Connors who filmed a movie there.
Anyway, Corb plays The Horsehoe on Friday, into the wee hours of the morning (the encore was played after 2:AM).
Corb gets a few hours shut-eye and then he's up bright and early for his performance on CBC Radio's GO. He had to be there for a 7:30 AM sound check.
In this clip he is performing at about 10:AM on the Saturday morning. He looks and sounds a little bushed. But what a trouper!
The kicker to all of this is that this clip has become the most popular clip on the DirkFimbob Channel. Go figure! Check it out and let me know what you think.
Happy 60th Birthday Nick Cave!
