hold the wheatgrass

hold the wheatgrassI recently moved to Victoria, BC; land of flowers, tourists and everything British. The west coast is known for being green and mountainous. It’s also known for rain, methamphetamine addicts and Birkenstocks (guilty). In music, the west coast likes to lure me in with cutesy indie-pop acts with lots of clapping. Or hip-hop that makes me wanna shake my ass at random men. Actually, my music experience here in BC seems to primarily consist of me narrowly missing seeing my favorite acts live (I had to miss the spectacular Sasquatch Festival for starters). But I refuse to be defeated! And personally I’m not sure how anyone who lives here for any length of time could stay pessimistic for long. So here’s a sampling of west coast love from me to you:
