"Thankfully, good news from Pemberton: the police have now said there is no suspicion of foul play. Still sad for the young man's loved ones."

Sharon van Etten - Rickshaw Theatre (Vancouver – July 6, 2014)

"I can't wait / 'til we hide / from nothing" is the poignant refrain from "Afraid of Nothing", the first song in Sharon van Etten's Vancouver set. The Rickshaw -- essentially a large, open concrete box with only about 15 rows of seats at the back of the floor -- was packed with an audience of adoring fans who were in for a treat as van Etten unfurled a 90-minute show that put everything out on stage and left nothing in the shadows.Van Etten and her band took the stage at about 9:00 and quickly…See More

2014 in Music: The Year So Far (Album Reviews)

There will come a time late in the year when lists begin to get compiled. It’s one of the ways we mark time in life: somewhat arbitrarily attaching significance to dates as time passes. In this business, the usual means is a “top ten list.” If we’re being honest there’s a part of me that loathes these things: the arbitrary nature of the competition, the perception of ranking, the impact of personal taste, and limited access to music all add up to skew these lists. Buzz around a band means it…See More

Geoff Berner - Festival Man (Book Review)

Geoff Berner is probably the finest songwriter to come out of Vancouver's music scene, and it should come as no surprise to anybody who's followed his career that the singer had a novel in him. Berner's songs are filled with quirky characters who live life not exactly on the fringes of society, but certainly not in any world that could be defined as conventionally normal. In the endlessly charming "Clown & Bard" -- the opener to a tale of a drunken night spent in Prague -- he sings: It…See More

Vancouver International Folk Music Festival Day One (Jericho Beach, Vancouver BC - July 18th, 2014)

A glorious run of unseasonably warm weather for a couple of weeks in Vancouver had me all but convinced that the 37th annual edition of the Vancouver International Folk Music Festival would see rain: we can rarely rely on the sun for that long in the Pacific Northwest, so it seemed like a sure thing. As it turns out I was wrong—again,…

thanks, friend.  i should tell you i was also carrying someone  with me to the show.  i met james back in 1991 at a weekend seminar on traditional folk music and dylan at uvic.  a couple months later 2 shows were announced in seattle at the paramount and james said he couldn't go cuz of his heart condition.  i promised that if he went but needed medical attention, i would get him home, so he agreed.  to show his appreciation, i came home one day to find a box of tapes containing all the shows i had been to up to that point, starting in montreal 1974.  and as a bonus the "royal albert hall", that is to say manchester free trade, concert which he left unmarked so i could jump up crying in surprise when i heard "judas".  in 1997 james had a heart transplant and lived quite well, even catching a few more shows, until his death on october 2nd of this year.  he was in my heart in the vancouver show. 

i see you're into all kinds of awesome music and musicians and will appreciate all that brings.
