Many other concerts happened last week (not just the PPP finale) and I managed to get out to see two of these shows on Wednesday & Thursday…
Honorary Vancouverite Michael Bernard Fitzgerald (who hails from Calgary but plays in Vancouver a lot and has toured with local favourites Hey Ocean) opened for (Canadian Idol star) Carly Rae Jespen at the Media Club.
For a Wednesday the club was pretty full, and many a cheer erupted when Ashleigh Ball from Hey Ocean joined MBF on stage for a song.
If you haven’t heard of Mr. Fitzgerald yet, be sure to have a listen, as he’ll be back in town on FEB 6th @ The PITT PUB & FEB 19th @ ALBERTA HOUSE, along with a giant choir.
Many of you probably heard of the opening of the Vancouver branch of the Victoria-based surf shop SITKA on 4th Ave.
Well this past week they had a special evening of art (by Ben Frey) and music featuring Aidan Knight.
Aidan (with Colin Nealis) played two sets to a pack store and ended the evening with the WONDERFULLY catchy song Jasper in the midst of the madness. If you haven’t heard Aidan yet, GO LISTEN to his music. He’ll be on tour with Dan Mangan at the beginning of February…
