Heas sitting in the Drum & Monkey, drinking a pint during the BreakOut West event that just rolled through his former hometown of Calgary, and heas got a smile on his bearded face. Itas probably because after all these years, heas finally figured out this whole music industry thing. Heas decided the best way to get ahead is by going for the easy cash grab with a live album. Mimnaugh, who performs and records under the name Wil, laughs when asked how itas working out for him. aReally well, actually,a he grins. That new album, Live at the Ironwood, was recorded over two packed nights last year in the Calgary venue, a favourite of the now West-Coast-based artist. Itas far from a lazy, obligatory, press arecorda and start playing affair. Anyone whoas ever seen the veteran guitarist perform knows that heas incapable of going through the motions. aIave been vehemently opposed to a live record for a lot of years,a he says. aPart of it is youave seen shows that felt wonderful but youad never want to hear a board mix of it. Being the right kind of high and the right kind of drunk at a My Bloody Valentine concert will change your life.

Tickets were $55 plus a $25 food and beverage minimum. On the second season of Smash, the musical Hit List was a gritty, low-tech off-Broadway show that became a theater community darling and later competed with the glitzy Broadway-bound musical about the life of Marilyn Monroe called Bombshell. Hit List songs were written by Drew Gasparini, Joe Iconis, Andrew McMahon, Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman and Lucie Silvas. Smash was cancelled this summer after two seasons. ___ Online: Copyright 2013 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.
