The Rebels Sing gig was astonishing. Really fun getting odd comments from Erin ("I feel like I'm standing front row at my own gig"), and intense performances from a bunch of people, especially Jesse LeBourdais, and two people I left out of my article for Westender, Meeka Morgan and Doug Naugler. Plus Soiled Doves and the Royal City Rebels were great. I didn't catch all of ATD, but they seemed holy-shit-intense. Elliott did an amazing cover of "Pride and Prejudice" with his new band Freak Dream, who seem like they're going to be a force to be reckoned with. I'm growing to like the punkier stuff on the comp, too.
As for now, I have stuff up on the BC Musician website... Huckle, and a pending Joey Only feature. And a new West Ender feature on Psych Fest iii this Saturday. But I don't have the energy to track down links. I've had a busy week, helping prepare a Filipina woman for her immigration test, which involves memorizing a lot of Canadian trivia.
I saw The Ornithologist today at VIFF and loved about one third of it, was puzzled but compelled by a third, and frustrated and annoyed by the a third. Mostly I liked the birds (except the white dove).
Anyhow, happy Thanksgiving, etc. More to come here soon.
