My review (with more photos) is on No Depression.
Matt Andersen played a killer practically sold our show at Vancouver’s Vogue Theatre. Paul Rigby, who provided guitar work for the Weightless album, joined Matt for the night.
Old photos from the very rainy edition of the 2011 Vancouver International Folk Music Festival. I’m particularly fond of this one of Joel Plaskett, a very happy guy.
Michael Ignatieff stopped in West Vancouver last night to participate in an open mic town hall with local candidate Dan Veniez. I was rather fond of this Win one for the Gipper style photo when I got home.
Duffy & the Doubters live at Zulu Records
Jaycelyn Brown of Said the Whale. Don’t kill the whales!
Kyprios took home the Peak Performance Project’s top prize of $100,500 this year with Vancouver’s Said the Whale coming in second and winning $75,000 and Vince Vacarro placing third and winning $50,000. The showcase finale was held at Vancouver’s beautiful Commodore Ballroom.
A complete gallery of photos is in my Flickr photo stream.
The level of talent of the twenty bands chosen to participate in the contest was extremely high, and the top three were well chosen. If any of these performers come to your town make sure you go see them: you will not regret it.
