The Acorn and Ohbijou at Barrymore’s Music Hall, The Final Live Act Played at the Venue? – S04E08

The Acorn and Ohbijou at Barrymore's on December 12, 2008

Due to a bus strike that started on December 10, 2008, I almost could not make it to The Acorn concert at Barrymore’s Music Hall. Luckily, I had a friend who gave my brother and myself a ride and enjoying the concert. The only part I panicked was thinking the tickets were sold out and my friend would miss out. Eventually, I was saved by extras tickets and the guys who guard the entrance of Barrymore’s were kind enough to remind me about my friend. It was funny how my friend told me the guys remembered when he returned. In a way, it was memorable to do something in a worrying way. Despite the on-going bus strike, I did not expect to see a big crowd at Barrymore’s. It was also great to see Amanda Putz as she is a big supporter of The Acorn. Almost a blast from the past was seeing a few people from high school.
On to the concert, Ohbijou gave an excellent performance as it was elegant to hear their music. The Acorn’s performance was by far the most important as they are the hometown band. They totally lit up Barrymore’s and the crowd. A slight change in the members of The Acorn as they added Mike Dubue of Hilotrons. It has been in the local media that Barrymore’s had a change in ownership and it’s been said that The Acorn concert was the last live act to be played as the music hall will hold ’70s and ’80s night dance music and cover bands. What I will like about Barrymore’s Music Hall is the interiors of the building and how it is bigger than Zaphod Beeblebrox and other venues in Ottawa. I love the bigger space and the early 1990s look of the building. Let’s hope that there will be live bands performing for 2009. The photo on top is the final act of The Acorn with Ohbijou helping them out.

Enjoy and I haven’t had the feeling of Christmas yet. I haven’t seen any Christmas music videos but have been hearing some of the songs on the radio via the Internet.
