Concert Shirt/Posters Of The Day July 29th (Ottawa Blues Fest.)

Today's t-shirt is from the Ottawa Blues Festival I went to in 2003 with my Brother (Citrus) and Lorreine. I had gone to Montreal with Lorreine to visit my brother while he lived there. We decided to make a day trip to Ottawa to catch Elvis Costello and The Imposters at the Festival. This was my first time being in Ottawa and first time seeing Elvis Costello in concert.

My brother was able to get us in to the show for free, as he was working for a record distribution company at the time and knew some of the vendors at the festival. He was able to snaggle a few free tickets for the show. We got there in the afternoon and caught some of Sonny Landreth's set and then next was Elvis. Elvis Costello put on an amazing show.
