STARS

I have to thank my friend Lindsey (http://lindseyblane.com) for asking if I wanted to be her +1 to go see STARS at the Vogue Theatre. I haven’t seen this band perform since Rifflandia 5 years ago! (photos here). Lindsay was there taking photos of the show and I stood right next to the sound station in the back.  Continue reading

Towers and Trees

TOWERS AND TREES are back! And after going on hiatus for a few years, they came back with a new single, “Head Down Heart Up” which is a real head-bopper! Much like previous jams, “Montreal”, “Free” and “West Coast Man”.

THE ELWINS

This is the first time I saw THE ELWINS perform – the first song I ever listened from them was probably “Stuck in the Middle” which was probably back in 2011/12? Continue reading

ZOUBI AND THE SEA

I didn’t get into town until close to 8 that night on Friday.  I had just enough time to get home and drop off my bags and grab a quick dinner with my parents before I headed downtown to Sugar Nightclub.

I made it just in time to catch a part of ZOUBI AND THE SEA performing on stage. I swear in the two years since I’ve moved to Vancouver, more local bands have been popping up on the island since I’ve been away!

Delhi 2 Dublin

I think the first time I’ve ever heard of the band DELHI 2 DUBLIN was when KYTAMI was touring with them for a bit (or all of it? I can’t remember it was a few years ago). And I remember each time they came to Victoria, for some reason I always ended up not being able to make there set because of either work or school.

Andrew McMahon in the WIlderness w/ Junior Prom and Hunter Hunted

Todays video is the time I went to go see someone who I’ve been wanting to see perform live SINCE THE BEGINNING OF FOREVER (meaning 2003/4)? ANDREW MCMAHON!!!!  aka SOMETHING CORPORATE and JACK’S MANNEQUIN

The opening bands:
Junior Prom: https://www.youtube.com/user/JuniorPromTV
Hunter Hunted: https://www.youtube.com/user/hunterhuntedmusic

Andrew McMahon: https://www.youtube.com/user/AndrewMcMahonVEVO

Both opening bands were awesome! I legit went home and listened and bought all of their music! And, you should go and check them out too!

I ALMOST wished I could’ve taken live photos of the show, but my friends bought me these tickets for my birthday, soooo CAN’T COMPLAIN!  And, I got to see one of the stage managers from Rifflandia Music Festival who was also working the event for UNION EVENTS (who were the promoters of the show) GOOD JOB GETTING THIS ACT! LOVE HIM!
