What Do You Mean You Missed It?—Vancouver concert photography July 4-10, 2011

– by Ashley Tanasiychuk

Hmmm! What a weird week. In the midst of officially changing this grande olde site’s name from Guttersnipe to the shiny, tidy, and sexy moniker The Snipe, we were hacked, had to move servers, lost email as a result, and have had troubles with galleries.

Well, onwards and upwards! Last week, luckily in some ways, was somewhat slow on the show front. Toots, Omar Souleyman, and a big weekend in Vancouver, The Hip in Winnipeg, and Edgefest in Toronto (actually, I guess that’s still quite a bit of action, no?)… let’s get started!

At 65 years old, Toots showed that he is still “a force on stage and has an enviable amount of energy.” For the full review, check out the post here.

The Hip continue their westward cross-country tour with a stop in Winnipeg. Gord looks like everyone’s favourite grandpa, slingin’ stories of the good ol days while sitting on the porch

Here’s lookin’ up – whether the skies are full of sunshine, or raining buckets of demonic 3-headed rats. With fangs. Fanged 3-headed rats that gnaw their way into your computer and wreak havoc on your internets. Folk artists are like garlic to those vampires. Folk artists are knights (& knightesses?) cloaked in internet-savvy armour! Bring on the Folk Fest!!

Have a great, fanged rat-free week.
