Canadian Idol, Rehearsals and Shows 

A while back we got an email from the folks at Canadian Idol letting us know that someone had auditioned with The Last Saskatchewan Pirate and that the footage may be used on the show. We're pretty sure that person auditioned in Western Canada so we'll be tuning in on Monday May 30th to see if they made it on the televised show. There were no guarantees that it would air but tune in if you can. That would be cool. We've had a couple emails from people saying that they auditioned with our songs and we couldn't be happier about that. Thanks for doing that. Check out www.idol.ctv.ca for more information on times and channels.

We've just returned from a couple of days in Perth, Ontario where we were rehearsing and learning new songs. Our friends were kind enough to let us invade their home and rock out for a few hours each day. We got a lot of work done so expect the new songs to appear this summer. We think there are some gooders there and we're excited about recording them for the next album which will come out early in 2006.

A couple shows coming up in the next week or so. Friday June 3rd, we are in Hamilton at Hamilton Place Studio Theatre. Tix at Ticketmaster or at the door. Then on Monday June 6th we are playing at the Peter Gzowski Red Barn Concert. We're doing about 10 minutes as part of a big show that features The Stampeders and Jane Bunnett. And we get to play in the golf tournament the next day. Comedy will ensue for sure. Check out www.frontiercollege.ca/english/whatnew/whatsnew.htm Then the festivals start happening with the first one being Old Songs near Albany, NY. Summer is finally happening.

Giddy up. See you out there.

Time off 

We three Worms are really digging the time off. Ontario weather has finally turned somewhat nice. Bike rides, picnics and blackflies. Good times. There isn't much to report. We've all been working on new songs that we'll teach to other later this month in an undisclosed location. We don't even know where it is. Gosh I hope we find it. We've been on the look out for a new WormMobile. Our current ride needs more than pimping, lemme tell ya.

And our summer schedule keeps growing. Check out www.arrogant-worms.com for the latest additions including an early June show in Hamilton, ON. A couple more shows will be added in the next while so keep an eye out every once in a while.

I think that's it for now. We hope you are all well. See you out there.
