Summit Park reservoir

Today I discovered a place in the middle of the city I grew up in that I never knew existed! I drive by Summit Park on almost a daily basis and yet, it's been hitherto unknown to me. By shear accident I stumbled upon it, and I think it deserves a return trip or two.

After that, I ended up in the Songhees area of Vic West watching the sun set over the harbour and the hills. Is there anywhere better in the world?

You Say Party! We Say Die!

Last night I listened to the band Champion for the first time. I so liked what I heard, I was thrilled when offered a free ticket to their concert tonight! Opening for Champion was Vancouver dance-punk sensation You Say Party! We Say Die! who ably warmed up the crowd.

After YSPWSD, Champion brought the house down with their beat-heavy electronic blues stylings. The tracks I heard from their album last night was light and fluffy campared with the gritty thumping riffs that kept the crowd jumping up and down more than the 5 guitarists on stage! Two weeks from now, Champion is playing at the Junos, where they are nominated for Dance Recording of the Year.
