What a long, strange trip it's been

I confess: I enjoy the subsequent projects by Julie Doiron and Rick White to the indie-rock fuzz of Eric's Trip, the band that put them on the map. But you have to give props to the East Coast quintet for their invaluable groundwork for the independent music scene Canadians enjoy today (not to say they deserve sole credit, mind you).

Here's Rick White, once again.

Julie Doiron has been growing her bangs for the occasion.

Chris Thompson.

I snapped this shot of Mark Gaudet at the start of the show. His musical roots predate his bandmates by several years - he got his start with Purple Knight in the 1970s.

The whole lot!

And now, trippy action!

Julie takes a spin on Dick Morello's Strat while Chris uses her bass.

And big fuzzy finish!

That's one reunion under the bridge. I wouldn't mind another.
