Field of Dreams

The Sandwich.

Websters defines it as two or more slices of bread or the like with a layer of meat, fish, cheese, etc., between each pair. But most of us know is as an easy and delicious choice when faced with that dreaded duo hunger and apathy. It is the most important food in almost every culture on the earth. Walk any street in any city in the world and ask aloud: "Does anyone want a sandwich?" and you will see that everyone rich and poor alike does want a sandwich. Songs have been written about it. Great art. Poetry. It's in the Bible! The average north american eats roughly 3 to 4 sandwiches a day. Chances are it was your first food as a baby and it'll most likely be the last thing you eat. You may be eating one right now.

To celebrate this most omnipresent of cuisines I will be eating my 100,001st sandwich at 7pm saturday night in the basement of Sonic Boom(huge record store next to the bloor cinema). Entertainment will be provided by Castlemusic and $100. Please join us in this historic event. Feel free to pack one for yourself. You probably already have.

Always Yours,
Ian Russell

dudes, your show was killah. i loved every song, every minute. the fleetwood mac cover was a delightful surprise. the sandwich eating, however, was a "total letdown". im so glad i got to see you play.
