The rosemount is still my favourite, seen some great shows there.

The new Red Jez album is awesome.
And I was recently surprised by the Friends of Rico EP – very cool.

Weezer in Vancouver BC
Death Cab for Cutie @ Metros Freo

Why support local original music? Why not cover bands?
I prefer the originality.
