The week of festivities begins! My friend Andrew (who you may recognize from the Turncoats) has been teaching in Japan for the majority of the past two years, and he is back for a short while to marry Julie! I am so excited for their wedding, but to start out this week Andrew pulled together a few of his musician friends and held a CD release party for his new solo album (which is pretty darn good!).
I spent one of my few wedding-free Saturdays at the Dragon Boat festival at Henderson Lake, and was so impressed with the entertainment all day! I’m embarrassed to say this was only my first time seeing Hippodrome… they are fantastic!
Okay, this will be the last old one for a while! Last month the Brains came back to Lethbridge all the way from Montreal and played a gorgeous night at Henotic. The restaurant opened up the large doors, letting the outside atmosphere in… and provided a wonderful cloudy background for the band.
Well, this makes it obvious I am a little behind on personal work… these photos are from February! Cicala played at the GCBC Lounge at Henotic to an unfortunately small crowd, but the intimacy there meant I could sprawl out on one of the couches, which was pretty fantastic as I remember being exhausted that night :)
Earlier this month Wide Mouth Mason finally came back to Lethbridge. You may have forgotten about them, since they haven’t put out any new albums in a while… but they are still around, and working on a new one! I always love seeing this band live; all three members put so much soul into the music they make. Front man Shaun Verreault is both one of my favorite Canadian guitarists and overall favorite singers.
My group of friends and I thought we’d miss this show since it was billed as a “private show,” but luckily we found out it was open, and free. Sadly, there was hardly anyone there as a result, but we had a good time ;)
