I’ve been checking the concert listings in Vancouver lately and they seem kinda dull – although there are a few gems we’re going to check out later this month [604]. It seems like I completely missed out on some GREAT shows when I was living in Boston. I’ve only been to the Middle East once and I should have been there 5 times a week, definitely the best little venue in that city. Every big and little band (before they get big… or not) stops by the Middle East (downstairs), if even just to pop in on the crowd and do an inpromtu set a-la Eddie Vedder. Not sure if there’s an equivalent in Vancouver – highly doubtful…. which is sad [mg].

I posted only a few pics from our trip to Wreck, no pics of us (don’t worry Laura) although I’ve been told it would be blogging gold if I did take any/post any from there :p. We were planning on going back today but I’m all sick-y like and it’s mucky out.

After breakfast (yes, at 1pm) we’ll consider heading over to Davie Day. Tomorrow I work from 3-11pm – I hope the little TV in the office get Global so I can watch Simpsons and Family Guy while trying not to work too hard.

Tonight I’ll cook us a lovely little meal with help from AllRecipes.comhave I mentioned how great that site is lately?

    If you’re into indie rock and local (or at least Canadian) talent there’s a couple of shows coming up I’ll be checking out.

    Bella (Local Vancouver Band) alongside Viva Voce (from Portland) will be playing at the Media Club on the 22nd this month and then Hawksley Workman has a show on the 26th at the Commodore.

    Missed you and John at the Workspace Unveiling?

    I’m not a huge HW fan, the striptease song never did it for me – but we’re all for checking out indie acts, for sure.

    Naw, we weren’t at the workspace thing – I believe I was sunburnt all lobster-like so we had to miss out. However we did check out the location the following week during BarCamp.

    “Striptease” isn’t remotely representative of Hawksley Workman’s body of work. He’s diverse and brilliant.

    check out a bunch of multimedia stuff on the official fan community board – links to lots of different audio and video files. you definitely should give this guy a few minutes of your time. i decided to give him about 10 minutes at a festival. those minutes have lasted more than 4 years now 😉
