It was a nice sunny Saturday afternoon today and I decided to take a trip downtown to take in The Courtyard Sessions in Market Square. Almost every Saturday afternoon this summer, the organizers of Rifflandia and the Downtown Victoria Business Association are holding free concerts in the square. In the next few Saturdays the likes of The Archers, Christopher Arruda, The June Fiasco, Steph Macpherson, Carmanah, Celebrity Traffic and more are set to take the stage.
Originally the band Handsome Distraction was scheduled for today’s session, but they had to back out due to noise regulations and equipment limitations, so their spot was filled by Geoffrey Lundstrom. The first time I had heard Lundstrom was during one of Tash Baycroft’s Naked Jams sessions where I worked as the audio op for the shoot.
Here’s Geoffrey Lundstrom performing ‘West Coast’ The other songs I shot I don’t know the titles of and I can’t find any of them on the internet.
I shot 6 songs of the set in total. CLICK HERE to see the rest.
