The Eternal Harmony

Last night we left the kiddos with Helen and headed off to church...



In what turned out to be one of the best concerts we have ever attended, things got off to a raucous start with Bucan Bucan (Victoria’s number 1 gypsy marching band, so says they) and the equally eclectic and bizarre Meatdraw!


Tour opener Gentleman Reg then took the stage. Oh yeah... we had good seats pew!


The main event on this night was The Hidden Cameras... Canada’s premier indie-pop band and makers of many a tune I have stolen for familial video purposes (such as Effie's Eighth Birthday Movie)





Pretty decent setlist, though sadly no “Awoo”. And although I would have enjoyed hearing it, it is probably for the best that they did not include “I Want Another Enema” (my body is an exit wound”) given the band’s penchant for performance art.


Snippets (including coveted video of Gillian dancing)...

I love that you used a hidden camera to film the hidden cameras....

So do Hidden Cameras have a new album out? Is that why they were touring?

mesmith said...

Yes, new album. And after repeated and repeated listens.... best yet. Highly recommend you borrow it!
