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!

I was not intending on seeing FIVE ALARM FUNK tonight. Honestly. I met up with my friend Darcy and we pretty much started the night at Phillips Brewery Tasting Room and then I wanted to do a “mini” pub crawl of all the sound boards that he has worked on or installed at various venues. Capital Ballroom just happened to be the 3rd and last venue we checked out that night!
I think the last time I saw such a huge ensemble band was Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeroes! Although they were more of a 13-person band, this was half that – an 8-person band. But it felt like such a party on stage! Everyone was just so into it and having a good time! The fiddle player and the bass player were dancing so hard – it was awesome!
Today we went on a second boat tour! I think this was probably one of my favourites! We went and visited the 7 Phi Phi Islands.
