My friend, Maggie, was kind enough to snap a few photos for me. Thank-you Maggie!
Lily and the gang organized another successful night of music at Citizen Cain last week. Actually, I’m going to correct that statement. Citizen Cain owes yet another successful night of music to Lily. She’s the woman behind the show. Lily’s in charge of promoting and organizing the show. She also takes care of the sound system, musicians and organizes practice nights for us.
Lily is well-known to anyone who’s a Citizen regular. She’s the lady with the big smile on her face and a kind word for everyone.
There she is! Lily also happens to be an amazing performer. She does a terrific impersonation of Tina Turner and belts out Filipino love songs like they’re going out of style. I think she’s one of the nicest people I’ve met here and that’s a big statement because I really have met some amazing people over here. Lily is definitely someone John and I like to spend time with. We just wish she wasn’t so busy all the time!

The party kicked off at 8pm. I was a little sad to arrive so late in the evening. My last class finished in Shu-lin at 9pm. I didn’t arrive until the second set and wasn’t able to sample any of the mouth-watering food that was being served. But the tunes were good, despite two interruptions from the police. Apparently, the upstairs neighbours are really touchy about sound. Despite the interruptions, everyone seemed to have a good time. I’m looking forward to the next event sometime next month.
We hope to see you at the next show and for those of you who are musicians or for those of you who would like to join in the fun, we are more than happy to have you join us!
