Next up on the Irene's stage last Saturday: Hamilton-via-Toronto singer/songwriter Greg Hobbs. Hobbs has been around a while. He put his first album out in 1994; album No. 5 is imminent. Along with his own happy songs about divorce and sad songs about marriage, he covered Carmelita by Warren Zevon and Bob Dylan's Simple Twist of Fate.

Greg does sometimes have a band in tow, but this was just a solo gig.

He asked me between songs "Did you get any of me when I wasn't blinking?" Yes, but it was a close-run thing.
