Western Canadian Music Festival

Billy Talent with Jim Vallance

I'm not really sure If I should post this here, or one of my other blogs but I guess this is the where it fits most.

Last weekend was the Western Canadian Music Awards which ran with some other Western music festival.

Now I live in Vancouver, and I'm very active as far as seeing shows and knowing what's going on. Top this with the fact that one my friends is a music exec and was staying with me, and I still knew almost nothing about this event. Our local music magazines, and newspapers had almost no coverage.

Still, I had lots of fun, and got to meet lots of local Vancouver icons, like Mike Reno, Jim Vallance (legendary songwriting of Bryan Adams and Ozzy Osborne et al) and other famous Canadians like the band Billy Talent.
