Last week I had the chance to attend not one, but two Library Voices shows here in Vancouver. As I've mentioned before, Library Voices is one of my favourite upcoming Canadian bands, and neither show disappointed. Yelling along with their lyrics was definitely the highlight of last week which coincidentally was my Spring break!
Library Voices has been touring constantly for at least the past two years and they're starting to get some wide recognition. They have tons of literary influence along with a strong dose of good old Canadiana — they are from Regina after all. Following are some photos I took at the shows.

The Media Club show was definitely the best. The venue is slightly larger and for whatever reason everyone at the show was just... nicer.

As kind as Library Voices were to come to Vancouver twice, Vancouver was not nice to Library Voices. While they were here they had about $10,000 worth of gear stolen from their van. Here is an appeal to get there gear back from CBC Radio3 on YouTube:
If you haven't listened to them yet, check out their Myspace page; they're really nice people and it's been great to see their fan base grow. Definitely excited to see them come around again!
