Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, y'all. I'm beyond excited. This is a big deal. This is Tom Waits big. This is Bob Dylan big. This is Soundgarden in the '90s big.
Even better is that I'm getting off this island for the first time in months. You go kind of stir-crazy in a way that's tough to explain when you live on an island and don't get out every once in a while. At least those of us who grew up on the prairies do. Being surrounded by ocean can be claustrophobic.
And even better better is my dad and a couple of his friends are flying in from Calgary and meeting me there. I have a cool dad.
