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.


A Morning Bike Ride Around Victoria, BC

This morning I woke up with a little more vigour then normal, so I decided a scenic bike ride was in order. I didn't really have any particular destination, so I loaded up my camera gear and just pointed my bike towards the water (not hard to do here in Victoria). I ended up riding by Craigdarroch Castle, which, even though I knew existed, I had surprisingly never seen. Even though I am quite out of shape, I found riding a bike much better for exploring then a car. A car can be cumbersome to park in some spots in Victoria. Being able to quickly stop and snap a photo was very handy. I will definitely be heading out to do this again sometime soon.
