Maria's Dream Dinner Party/Jam Session...

Dinner Party...

Guests: Amy Obarski, Ingrid Michaelson, Kaki King, Gwen Stefani (Circa No Doubt), Regina Spektor, Tegan Quin, Sara Quin, Andrew Bird, Janis Ian, Holly Throsby


A mid-Autumn evening in Toronto.  The trees are changing colors.  And there is that autumn smell hanging in the air.  A cool loft apartment.  Not exposed piping cool, but classic cool.


Chicken Tikka Masala with Naan and white wine.  Chocolate covered strawberries for dessert.

Seating Arrangement...

Giant circle table.  Okay, my girlfriend, Amy, gets to sit next to Kaki, becuase she loves Kaki King and Amy wants her to play our wedding.  Andrew and Holly would sit next to each other, because they both have such interesting musical arrangements and...if they're not friends they should be.  I would sit in between Janis and Ingrid, because they are my musical idols.  Regina would sit between Tegan and Sara, (and if they turn her into a lesbian, I'm sure that would make a lot of lesbians happy world-wide.)  If Gwen is anything like she is on stage, she probably won't be sitting down.  She'll be the one running around doing push-ups.

Jam Session...

Every would just be sitting around warm and happy from dinner, and carrying around their third glasses of wine and gorging themselves on chocolate covered strawberries.  We'd all start to just play together, and everyone would go.  It wouldn't be cacophony, but it would still be a mess.  An organized mess.  Everything would flow into everything else.  But, the things that would happen for sure?  I would just want to to watch Kaki King play first.  Because she is a goddess, and no one else would be able to play along with her. And, I would want to jam with Ingrid, so she would start liking my music and I could tour with her.

Thanks, Maria!  And, if anyone has any interesting in being featured, just comment or e-mail me. --molly.
