6th & St. Catherine’s. This little community garden is right at the top of the hill in that huge park by the VCC campus. Great spot for tobogganing, if it ever snows in Vancouver again. I chose this place so that I could stagger home late after a show at the Great Northern Way Campus.

If any of you haven’t ever seen Tanya Tagaq perform, you really, really have to rectify that. Prehistoric wailing and growling and heavy breathing that does something subliminal to your primate brain. And last night she was paired with Michael Red, one of Vancouver’s most darkly gifted electronic music producers… the two of them had every single person there totally entranced and ecstatic. So goooooood!!!!
