Forestry Reunion Show at Sugar in Victoria, BC

This was the last show Forestry ever played. I was at Sugar Nightclub here in Victoria to capture it. The Wicks and WoolWorm opened up. Forestry did an amazing job finishing off the awesome run they've had. Instead of an encore, they destroyed the stage for their last song (much better option in my opinion). WoolWorm was the big surprise for me. I really liked their music, and their live show was really fun to watch. If you ever get a chance to see this Vancouver band play, do it. You won't be dissapointed.  

First up was The Wicks.





Next up was WoolWorm.







And finally, Forestry.





Rock of the Woods Pre-Party at Lucky

So, once again I bring you photos from a concert at Lucky Bar here in Victoria, BC. This was a pre-party for the awesome Rock of the Woods Music Festival that will be taking place on August 26 and 27 in Bamberton, BC, here on Vancouver Island. It was a sold out show featuring Avairis, Carmanah, and Sunhawk. I wasn't able to stick around for very long after Sunhawk hit the stage, but I managed to snap a few shots before I had to leave. The few songs I did hear made me want to see these guys again. Avairis was up first.



Next up was Carmanah.






And last up, Sunhawk.


Dan Kosub's Victoria CD Release Party

Dan Kosub has been galavanting all across Canada while promoting his new album Jacob's Island (which you can get on iTunes here). The Toronto musician returned to Victoria, BC (where he grew up) on Saturday night to play a show at Lucky Bar. The crowd was full of Dan's friends and family, who were very excited to see him play. After much noise at the end of the show, he came back out at the end to play an emotional encore. Opening up for Dan, was local artist Geoffrey Lundstrom. I strongly suggest listening to some of his soulful tunes. Very solid music.

I've now seen 2 shows at Lucky, and both times I've been blown away by the sound quality. A very good sounding venue.

And now, on with the reason I was there, the photos! First up, Geoff Lundstrom:



And now Dan Kosub and his band.







Jessica Benini's CD Release Party

Jessica Benini was having a release party for her new album on Thursday night at the Upstairs Cabaret here in Victoria. She invited along Emily Spiller and Head of the Herd to play. I would urge you to check them out, as they all rocked the house. I had a ton of fun photographing my first concert. First up was Emily Spiller:
