This is the first video I made, was a little gift for Alina.

Quite honestly I had heard quite a lot about Japandroids over the last couple years but just didn't take the time to check out their music, as it turns out I go to a lot of shows where this is the situation, call me lazy or living in my own musical bubble but once in a while I am pleasantly surprised at what I hear, this was one of those cases. I was lucky enough to talk to to Dave and Brian before the show and found them to be two good humans, I could tell that they are genuinely in it for the music and the good times. After a long stint of touring and playing a blitzing amount of shows at SXSW they showed up in Vancouver to a packed house at the Lifetime headquarters and played their hearts out. To say people went crazy would be an understatement, monitor towers were tipping, front rowers were getting crushed, cymbal and mic stands were toppling, all the kids got what they asked for, a real rock show. Any ways here are a couple photos I managed to squeeze in whilst at the show.
