Bend Sinister Is One of Vancouver’s Best Bands

On my way home from a grocery run tonight I heard Bend Sinister’s song Things Will Get Better on The Peak. I saw Bend Sinister a few months back when they played at UBC with the Paper Lions (another of my favorites who I discovered last year) and was totally hooked. Their sound is something like an updated Supertramp. Before you think I’ve lost my mind, realize that I don’t like Supertramp at all but Bend Sinister takes their sound and makes it amazing.

There’s a video of them on Edmonton’s Breakfast Television show where they play that same song. Skip forward to the 5:00 minute mark if you want to get straight there, otherwise enjoy their opening song, Change Your Mind, that I quite like too.

Tomorrow Dave rolls in to give me a hand putting new shelves and such into my closets. I’ll be able to hang stuff up in my place!┬áPandemonium! Dogs and cats living together!
