Arts & Culture: Live Music in Winnipeg

2

This April my band, The Sure Things traveled from Toronto to Winnipeg to play some shows with local bluegrass heroes, The Magnificent 7s. Had a great time playing music and taking lomographs!

In April, 2011, my band The Sure Things, traveled from Toronto to Winnipeg to play some shows with local Winnipeg bluegrass heroes The Magnificent 7s.

After a long drive from Toronto, we settled into our home away from home in Winnipeg. Our first day in town, we had a night off. My band mates headed out to watch the hockey game, but I was keen to check out legendary local live music bar The Times Change, High and Lonesome Club (234 Main St.). I have heard about this bar from many musicians who have traveled through Toronto and was eager to check it out. I decided to walk through Winnipeg to the venue with my Diana Mini at my side.

I arrived at The Times Change in time to catch local musician Keith Dick and bar owner John Scoles performing Bob Dylan songs in honour of his 70th birthday. Great times and great music.

The next night my band performed at another infamous local live music venue, “The Standard Tavern” (61 Sherbrooke St.), opening for local faves Andrew Neville and The Poor Choices, who have performed here every night for 6 years! Much beer, music and pinball followed.

So if you are ever looking to visit a town with a fantastic local live music scene, I would highly recommend a trip to Winnipeg to visit The Times Change and The Standard Tavern.

    Lomography Fisheye No.2: Seven Years of Wonder

    Exactly seven years ago, I bought this camera from Indonesia's local Lomography community. I remember having some savings in my bank account and just spending it all on this camera. At that time, I browsed the microsite for the Lomography Fisheye No.2 and immediately fell in love with it! Coincidentally, my friend who introduced me to Lomography just bought this same camera for his birthday. My life has changed ever since I had the Fisheye, my first lomographic camera.

    Fresh from My Darkroom: Yoga for Africa!

    Last Sunday, a great yoga event was held in Cernobbio, a small tourist town near the city of Como. Local association Breathe Como made a performance of power yoga exercises to raise funds for Africa. I developed the film a few days ago, and today I'll show the photos to you! I call this "Fresh From My Darkroom" because I developed the black and white films by myself! Take a look!

    An Afternoon in Tagaytay Highlands

    I have good memories of Tagaytay Highlands. There had been times when some of my friends and I would spend the weekend there, playing all sorts of sports and having our bodies healed in the warm and lapping jacuzzi pool. But those were distant memories. I was able to go back to this place, but only for an afternoon, and tried to remember the good old days.

    Fresh from My Darkroom: The First Game of the New Rugby Season

    Last Sunday, the local rugby team Rugby Como played the first match of the 2014-1025 season. Rugby is my favorite sport to photograph, and for some years I've been documenting almost every home match of this young team. This time I used a 1959 Zorki 5 camera with a vintage 1958 Industar-50 lens loaded with a timeless film, the Ilford HP5+ developed in a century-old developer, the mythical Rodinal. Take a look after the jump!

    My Analogue Bucket List: Faster Than a Speeding Cannonball

    The new year is still young, but it seems as if it'll be over quickly. My organizer is already filled with entries until June. 2015 will probably be worse than 2014 when it comes to having time off so I could take some analogue shots. Anyway, there are some photography-related things that I really want to get done. It is probably best to set some goals if I only have very limited time.

    James Wright's So It Goes x Sri Lanka Photo Diary (Part I)

    In December last year James Wright, editor and creative director of So It Goes Magazine, went on a two-week trip to Sri Lanka, "a place so long on our bucket list, but up until then, as yet unvisited," he writes on the first of his three-part photo diary. Herein is the first of his series that chronicles his adventures, highlighted by a selection of breathtaking images of the Sri Lankan countryside and the locals, among many other images, captured with his trusty photographic companions: the Leica MP, Lomo LC-A+, and an assortment of films including the LomoChrome Purple.
