Summer of Love


With Sasquatch around the corner (which I hold a glorious ticket to finally seeing Flogging Molly, Modest Mouse, Death Cab, Wilco, Iron and Wine, Chromeo, Dan Mangan and so so so so many more) and the sun peaking out to say hello, I am AMPED about this summer's music festivals.

Mother of PEARL!......Is that the SUN out there?? Well honk my hooter IT IS!!

The clouds have broke in Fernie and I am outside, shirt off, soaking in the vitamin whatever, blogging as we speak and....hang on.....what is THAT?? Folks there is some sort of jiggly pale jellyfish-like creature clinging to my midsection! Its big and white and round, has a bit of hair suggesting its mammalian! My god! Its also a cyclops and has an awkward tattoo on its face! Begone you with you demon!!.......................oh that's my belly.   Hmmm.

Anyway, we're gearing up for a summer of FUN and the kick off party for the summer is the fundraiser party for Fernie's 1st annual Wapiti Music Festival THIS Friday May 13th at the Central.  They are also announcing the artist line-up for the festival and Micheal Bernard Fitzgerald is playing all night long. STOKED! Tickets for the party are sold at Midges Mag's in Fernie and proceeds go to help funding the concert that will take place August 19th and 20th.
