Just Cuz...

I dunno why I feel the need to post this picture, I just like it. Wouldn't it be cool if the V on the building actually stood for "Verreault" instead of "Vogue"? ( far as you know, it does.)

Anyway--Shaun Verreault. Insanely good guitarist, and singer and stuff. Don't worry, he only looks 12, so nobody has to have any "Too Young to be an Insanely Good Guitarist" envy, or anything. I'm sure he's....uh...30ish, or something.

He's on a train at this very moment, doing some holiday shows--if you are in the Chicago area, the info is below, so by all means, hit it up.

Here's his Twitter (that's where I stole the pic).

Here's the Wide Mouth Mason Twitter.

And here's their web site. Hopefully, you can find everything your little heart needs in the Wide Mouth Mason world from there...really a stellar band. I mean it.

(You see how I justify stealing and posting pictures? "C'Mon, man! I lnked to you! I called you "stellar! See? Nothing but love...")
