The Wedding Present rocked this little hole in the wall called the Media Club last night. I didn’t know what to expect and only knew the band from their reputation as a really cool indie sort of band from Britian that’s been around for the last 20 years. They put on a fine show that had all the older, balding men bouncing around in front of the stage. Vancouver’s known for crowds that stand still during a performance with everyone more interested in looking hip than watching the band onstage. So I enjoyed being in an energetic crowd last night.
Opening was an incredibly cool band called Earlimart who came up from California to support the Wedding Present on the west coast leg of their tour. They’re a poppy band who won us over quickly with a dreamy, but snappy set of songs. I’ve ordered some of their CDs this morning since I want to hear more of them.
Today it sounds as though I’m heading up the Chief’s second peak with Josh and possibly Shan and anyone else who’s interested in a hike.
