Anyone that know me knows that one of my all-time favourite musicians over the past decade has been Mr. Dan Bern. The poignancy, humour and outright honesty of his songs have been a big influence on my little life. And now a little dream of mine is coming true- we’re doing some shows with him! The Fugitives will be doing four Northwest dates with Dan Bern in two weeks. The Van one is May 25 at the Waldorf. Here are the others:
May 21- Joe’s Garage in Courtenay, BC
May 22- Char’s Landing in Port Alberni, BC
May 23- Hermann’s Jazz Bar in Victoria, BC
Tickets are now on sale for Van and Vic.
It’ll take you 5 seconds. This is for a wonderful CBC/Green Couch collaboration called Tracks on Tracks to bring a few Canadian acts across the country on a big music train. Like Festival Express! It’s pretty cool. I’m up for it and The Fugitives are up for it. But you can vote for 3 artists! So go here, click on Take Our Survey (not a survey) and vote for myself and The Fugitives (and my buddies The Zolas while you’re at it).
Greetings of Spring! Chocolate rabbits and implied fornication to all! Resurrection! Redemption! All wonderful things. I hope this finds you in a well. I am Glynn and this is my news.
I’m at the tail-end of recovering from euphoria withdrawal after the closing of our play, Chelsea Hotel, in early March. It was a wonderful run here in Vancouver and we hope to do it again in the Fall. Thanks to anyone who was able to make it out to see it.
I have to ask for your vote again. I’m starting to feel like an NDP Leadership candidate but it seems to be the way things work these days.

I’m very excited to announce that The Fugitives will be playing a couple West Coast shows with none other than Dan Bern! For the past 9 years or so, if anyone asked me if I could suggest some new music for them to check out my first response would almost always be Dan Bern. He is one of the funniest, most unpredictable, most poignant songwriters i have ever come across and his music has been a huge part of my life for almost a decade. Can you tell I’m excited? We’ll be playing Vancouver with Dan on May 24th and Victoria on May 23rd, details to come.
Other than that, it is mainly back to writing for me now. This involves a lot of sitting and staring so i stretch in the morning to prepare for all the sitting i’m going to do. If you know any good stretches to prepare one for the strenuous endeavour of couch-sitting, fire away.
There will be summer dates and such to come, so stay tuned. And thanks, as always, for your patronage.

O, February, dark month of low sun and faltering resolve. Wilt thou have mercy on us yet? Happy belated New Year, friends and neighbours. Here’s what is happening in Glynn-town.
It’s been a while but Adrian is (temporarily) back on the theatre stage. He is starring in Chelsea Hotel, a new work that tells the story of a love-lorn and creatively blocked writer through the songs and poems of Canadian icon Leonard Cohen. The show plays 8 times a week at Vancouver’s Firehall Arts Centre until March 3rd.
Tickets can be found here.
