Because of that, I had the chance to finally see Hayden live - he headlined a fundraiser at the Ravine Estate Winery in Niagara-On-The-Lake.
Needless to say, I went completely fangirl.
He played a lot of the (fantastic) new album, but threw in a few older ones as well.
I think hardcore fans are always happy when Trees Lounge makes an appearance.
And after that, the fangirl mode went to the next level and I managed to meet and get a photo with one of my favourite musicians.
An amazing way to turn my weekend around.
(Huge thanks to Cait and Nick for making that happen - everyone else, go listen to Nick's band, Serena Pryne and The Mandevilles, and come see 'em next Wednesday the 29th at the Mojo Lounge in Toronto. Ok? Ok.)
