Photos of Frank Turner @ The Venue

with 2 comments

I first came across Frank Turner while living in a seedy (yet surprisingly upscale) apartment with two Parisian chess grifters, some Argentinian girls, and a garden possum near the “dirty half mile” of Kings Cross in Sydney. I didn’t know it at the time, but Turner could have written the soundtrack to the next 15 months of my traveling, crossing deserts, sleeping in airports and sailing down the coast. Turner has an amazing knack for capturing the human condition, and of writing honestly about a lot of the things I’ve thought and wish I’d said – to myself, my friends, and to the whole bloody world. As he showed last night at The Venue, he can still “wing” an awesome high octane whiskey fueled show… and all he needs is an acoustic guitar with a rambunctious crowd that keeps the shouts of whiskey flowing up on to the stage.

Saint Motel & Band of Skulls @ The Venue

without comments

My friends in the LA based band Saint Motel have been touring up the west coast with Band of Skulls.  As they were driving up for their first Canadian show, AJ gave me a buzz and asked if they could crash with me while they were in Vancouver.  Their show in Victoria went great, and reviews from their Vancouver show where steller.
