Whistler concert series

metric.jpg

April 14th until the 23rd there’s a big free concert festival up at Whistler that’s sponsored by iTunes [wcs]. There’s some good bands like Jurrassic 5, Metric and ummm… that’s about all I’m going to endorse. Then there’s bands like Hedley and Default who I’ll remain silent on least this post turn into a long winded rant.

Check out the above link for individual bands and their show times. There’s also snowboarding and other extreme style winter sports.

I never had the chance…

No More HarbourLynx (link to News1130’s site)

I always wanted to hop on that cute little ferry and go to the island – not specifically for Nanaimo, but just for the ride on the cute little passenger ferry. Sadly, it looks like I’ve lost that opportunity, as they’ve failed to submit a proposal within a required deadline. I guess no one had any good ideas about how to make people visit Nanaimo. The Harbourlynx Website is still saying they’re out of service due to engine failure.

I suppose engine failure can be another way to say bankruptcy. Or maybe they’re just bankrupt because the engine failed. Poor little ferry that couldn’t.

Seattle or bust X2

One of the nice things about having Seattle [mbs], Super Bowl Losers of 2006, so close to Vancouver is that anytime something particularly exciting is happening in our American twin city we can just take a short drive and check it out.

In the next month I’ll be going down to Vancouver-With-Guns for the New Pornographers / Belle & Sebastian show on March 25th.

On April 1st and 2nd I’ll be down again for the Fourth Annual Emerald City Comic Convention [eccc].

Any Seattle Metrobloggers [mbs] going to either of those events?
