Angus' American Trip Details.....

Yay! I now know where I'm staying in LA. It's The Grafton Hotel on Sunset Bvld about 100 meters or so away from The House of Blues which is where The Sisters of Mercy gigs are on the Sunday and Monday nights. So no problems for me finding my way back to the hotel late at night. The Grafton is pretty central to a lot of things so this will certainly help keep taxi costs to a minimum. Only a couple of miles away from the Hollywood Sign too so I guess that's one touristy thing I'll be doing :p

The Viper Room and some other clubs/bars are only a stones throw away too so I may try and taste a bit of the LA social scene when I'm out there if my money has held up from Vegas!

Anyway, I'll be in Vegas from Saturday 11th to 17th March staying at The Riveria (the hotel the GAMA Trade Show is actually held at). From the 17th to 21st March I'll be at The Grafton in LA. I get back into London at around 7.30AM on Wednesday 22nd March.

So, any of the bods who will be in Vegas who read this journal - fancy getting up to anything? :p

Also, apart from the Sunday/Monday nights in LA I'm free! I'm hoping to meet up with a couple of people on one of the days but if there are any other LA citizens who read my blog and fancy meeting up please let me know! :p

I'll be flying by Air Canada this time. It breaks the flights up a bit as I change planes in Canada (Toronto going and on the way back I pass through the city of my Conception - Montreal!). I actually really like the idea of being able to get up and walk around properly after about 5 hours of flying before the second leg of the trips.

On a completely unrelated subject - I delved into my old cassettes (rememebr those things?) and pulled out an old Ghost Dance album. God they were great - live as well as on record. There are certainly some bands I really wish were still around today and Ghost Dance are definetly up there amongst them.

Will you be stopping in Montreal for any length of time? I'd love to come out and do dinner or coffee at the airport if you are...

That would be nice, but I've just checked my return itinery and I'm only in Montreal for 55 minutes so I think I'll probably be running round looking for correct terminals in that time! It's a shame as I'm in Toronoto for about 3 hours going!

Thanks for the offer though. It would have been good to meet you.

That would be Toronto Pearson?
It takes about 6-7 hours to get there from Heathrow all told as I recall. S'a lovely airport with nice views. Much nicer than Heathrow terminal 3 :)
