music and fireworks


On Tuesday night we ventured down to Yaletown, one of the sites that is part of LiveCity Vancouver to catch some of the free concert series going on. Every night for the entire run of the Olympic and Paralympic Games, there are free concerts and celebrations happening around town. There is a long list of great artists to check out including: Wilco, Alexisonfire, Sam Roberts Band, Wintersleep, Buck 65, and Blue Rodeo... just to name a few.

At the end of each show, there is a huge fireworks display too... very cool, exciting and romantic... well, except when we were there, and it was pouring rain and the two burly policemen standing in front of us kept sneaking into all the photos.

ps. don't forget to enter the february giveaway here!!!

Great shots of the fireworks, it's not easy to capture things like that...and my little pixie of a camera would not have capture ANY of it. It doesn't like working after dark. LOL

Oh don't you just love "Photo Hogs" ? Those people who try to sneak into every shot? =D

Great photos, you are having some fun aren't you :)

I heard on the CBS news last night that so many people had complained about the big fence around the olympic torch, that you mentioned the other day, that they cut a hole in it to allow people to take photos :) T.

Wilco?? That's awesome! I saw them in Charlottesville, VA with my mom and had an amazing time. Beautiful pictures, by the way!

Wow there's a lot going on in your neck of the woods these days ;) That first photo is intriguing. Almost looks like something extraterrestrial is going on!

PS I love Wilco! And my friend who lives in Delta introduced me to Blue Rodeo--5 Days in May is my fave.
