Happy Tuesday my music blogger friends. The above Vine is a clip of my ECCW Wrestling debut…and possibly my last match? I took part in a small bout between some of the main events on Saturday at ECCW’s sold out Ballroom Brawl5 at the legendary Commodore Ballroom.

My fight was the “15 Minutes of Fame” match against Brady Malibu. An open challenge fight that ended with my head being smashed in by an iPad. Good times.

On to the tunes.

The Griswolds are going back on tour and coming to North America. Looking forward to a show on May 3rd at The Imperial with Panama Wedding and Magic Man. Other Pacific Northwest dates for the Hotling Spring Tour include Seattle on the 4th and Portland on the 5th. Weird, last time I was in Portland, The Griswolds were there and I missed them because I was doddling.

Thrice is firing it back up! (I used to love Thrice) Tour and a new record in 2016. I am jazzed on hearing what a 9th Thrice record might sound like, sad that there are no Vancouver shows.


The CBC had a story on Victoria rad duder Aidan Knight. They asked, “why isn’t he bigger in Canada?”

“Knight also explains how the last decade of his life has been like a research period — replete with lessons for his fresh start in Europe.”


Got my old Versicolour LP in the collection at home.

I’ve been a fan of his work since early Victoria band Black Tie Social. Still LOVE hearing “Silver Screens.” (I hope they don’t mind…I uploaded the song on Soundcloud….eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!)


And here is a live recording from 2006….just before the band’s final show at Big Fernwood.

Ugh…. nostalgia, you are a powerful drug.

Go with yourself.

Brooklyn’s Panama Wedding are back with a new song called “Infinite High.” New record is Into Focus and comes out on November 6th on Glassnote.

“Living month to month on a credit card. And there’s never quite enough, just being who we are.”


Next band was sold to me as shades of Royal Blood or Foo Fighters. Since I believe anything a PR person tells me on an unsolicited email, I hit play. Band is Armchair Committee.

“the band grabs the aggression and experimentalism from contemporary guitar music and drags it through the era of delta. The result is a dynamic blend of punk rock energy and skewed melodic blues.”

Happy Halloween…love the holiday day even more now that I have a couple kids. The parties were fun in my 20s, but kids really bring the magic.

Go with yourself.
