I was so happy to catch one of my favourite bands,   Elliott BROOD  , while they were in town, performing at (of all places) The Railway Club.  The venue was jam packed but I politely elbowed my way to the front (constantly apologizing and gesturing towards my SLR), and grabbed some shots. There are  a few more on the blog over on  3am Revelations  .

The entire reason I went to France was for the Trans Musicales Festival that took place in Rennes over several days.

The only band I knew going in when I was invited was Vancouver’s own Dralms, but other than them, I had a lot of digging to do.

I found a ton of great new artists and had a quite a time going from stage to stage to photograph as many as I could.

You can find the full recap of Day 1, Day 2, and Day 3 of the festival on 3am Revelations (the music blog I collaborate with), and see the entire set of photos from the festival on the Facebook page by clicking HERE.

Nobody ever has fun in a photo booth…….   yeah, right.  Once again I ran around the annual  New Years Eve party “One Night Stand”  ironically in it’s 8th (and final) year.  HUGE thank you to Eric Adams for helping me hold down the fort & capturing some magic.   The whole album is available on my Facebook page, including some photos of the band taking it to that background at the end of the night.   Happy New Year Everyone!

Got to hang out with the  Arkells  last night as they rehearsed for their Canadian tour, which starts tonight at the Commodore.  I’ve been to the venue so many times and it was pretty crazy to be there when it was empty, and dance around on the bouncy-floor while the band practiced.  There are a few more shots  on my Instagram ,  and theirs .

It appears I know a few handsome musicians (okay, a LOT) and it’s always great when they ask me to take photos of them.

Never work when you have great subjects to start with.
