Hey beautiful people!

It is with great regret that I have to let you all know, there will be no Toronto Thin Lizzy Celebration in 2009.

Those of you who know me, know that the past year or so has been filled with one trial after another and I just don't have the resources to devote to putting on the show this year. The Lizzy Celebration has always been about sharin' the love and spreading the word and rest assured, although I'm taking a short break, I am not abandoning the show. My intention is to take a brief pause and return next year for round 8, recharged and ready to go.

On August 20th 2009, Phil Lynott would have celebrated his 60th birthday. I've got some very preliminary plans for a more intimate birthday tribute based out of the store on the Saturday following... More info to come.

In the meantime, as those of you who made it out to this past year's Toronto Lizzy Celebration know, once again, we worked our butts off to put together a great filmed performance of a couple of kick-ass Lizzy tunes, "No One Told Him" and "Hollywood" with our good friend Danko Jones (on the night of the show was in Europe on tour with Motorhead and Saxon(!) ) with righteous T.L.C. faves, the McBrides. The vid was premiered on the night of the show and the audience response was truly overwhelming... Thank you all again for making these nights so special.

Well, now we are very proud to be able to share this footage with you again thanks to the magic of YouTube! The songs are embedded on our homepage, www.monsterrecords.ca as well as our

Myspace pages www.myspace.com/monsterrecordstoronto and

.. (and on our Facebook group here: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=2370666482 )

(if you can handle the bandwidth, please be sure to click on the 'watch in high quality' option for full awesome effect!) Thanks again to Danko, the McBrides (Des, James, Gary and Joe), Kevin Hilliard and Tim Foy for all your hard work... you guys kick ass!

Enjoy! ...and we hope to see you all out in 2010 for the 8th Toronto Thin Lizzy Celebration! Stay tuned for more details...

Peace,
Rog
