Last month I had the pleasure of seeing Joel Plaskett Live in Concert for about the 5th time. He was fantastic and mostly acoustic. It was a sit down show in a theatre which was new but also quite comfortable. One of the nicest part of the show was seeing Joel interact and perform with his father. It gave me hope that I might someday appear in a regional or semi-national publication with my father. This show was a while ago and I meant to mention it here but April really got a way from me. The reason I mention it now is because I heard a song on the radio today that featured Joel (Mr. Plaskett is his father's name). This afternoon CBC Radio 2 played a song by Classified (right after a song by The First Aid Kit). In this track, Classified figured out that putting a skinny white singer songwriter in the background was the quickest way to get me interested in Hip Hop and get a mention on my blog! Thanks to Damian for pointing him out to me.
