That hothothot August day seems like it occurred ages ago, doesn’t it. On that day, sitting on the grass under the blistering sun watching one amazing band after another take a stage placed in the middle a ball diamond, winter with its snow and freezing rain and short days seemed like an impossibility. Now, with winter making its presence known, it is the summer days featuring a seemingly endless supplies of Mill St. Stock Ale and Apostle of Hustle that seem mythic, occurring in some distant past; perhaps never happening at all, only dreamed.

Apostle of Hustle brought a number of things to the Wolfe Island stage. Among the expected were impassioned, poetic lyrics and fierce percussion. Among the unexpected were a strange interlude and an even stranger story involving a Mountie, drugs, and severed heads. Yeah…it didn’t make much sense at the time either but it seemed to fit nevertheless with the wonderful, dramatic set.
