Collette and John ended the year on a high note when they were selected by guest host Rich Terfry (aka Buck 65) to play at Broken Social Scene member Jason Collett's annual Basement Revue, held at Toronto's very cozy Dakota Tavern on Dec. 28th. They performed three songs which will be featured on Collette's upcoming CD and then John had the pleasure of improvising some dobro behind acclaimed author Gil Adamson ("Outlander") as she read a poem about a gunslinger. Finally John joined Buck 65 onstage for a performance of "Paper Airplane" a song they co-wrote along with PEI songstress Jenn Grant and which will be featured on Buck's next CD to be released early in the new year. Other performers that night included Great Lake Swimmers' Tony Dekker as well as the Cowgirl Choir so it was a pretty special evening. The craziest part though, was what happened during paramedic/author/storyteller-extraordinaire Morgan Phillips' monologue. An audience member standing near the bar passed out and hit the floor hard, necessitating Morgan to cut short his appearance and spring into action to assist the unfortunate individual. The audience got to see first hand just how Morgan does his job but the only way to find out how the story ended was to buy Morgan's book "The Emergency Monologues" (which Collette did of course!)
