Around Vancouver

Last modified on April 2nd, 2007

So, I had almost completely forgotten that the Trailer Park Boys were in town this week. My friend Kris met them while he was at SXSW a few weeks ago and had a few drinks with the guys. He had said they were coming to town shortly, but it had slipped my mind until the end of the day today.

Since I figured that the Robson’s Chapters is on my way home, I swung by with my 70-200mm lens and decided to snap a few photos of the guys. I was hoping Kris or Robert would have been around so I could have gotten a quick intro (Mike Smith, or Bubbles, used to be part of a band I once listened to called Sandbox — something I would have loved to have told him).

I believe the new season starts this week, so if you’re into the show, make sure to check it out.

In other news, Matthew Good is currently streaming a single from his new album, Hospital Music, for registered members of his website. It’s a really amazing track, so I highly recommend checking it out.

Here are some of the shots from this evening.

    So here’s what I’m dying to know (but am too embarrassed to ask in case people realize that I actually wasted thirty seconds of my life wondering this): does that guy really need coke-bottle glasses to see or does he just wear them for show (and then pops 4 Advil for the headache)??

    It’s just his character…

    Here’s a shot of Mike without the glasses.

    I dated a guy who used to play hockey with Bubbles in Halifax!
