We woke up on Friday morning to an overcast Victoria day – something we’ve come to expect of the Canadian west coast where sunny days seems more like the exception than the rule. It occurred to us that we hadn’t played Victoria since 2005. In the meantime we’d been to the island for shows in Nanaimo, Duncan, Courtney and Cambell River but it had been seven whole years since we played Victoria proper. It felt good to be back. We played a club called 9one9, formerly known as Legends. We played this very same venue on our first ever trip to the island back in 2002 as the support act for the Big Sugar farewell tour.
