Let me just start by saying this is the first time this 46 year old had ever attended an event at The Rickshaw Theater in Vancouver.
When I had told people I was going I had heard a ton of stories, mostly to due with the area in which is around the building being at Main & Hastings right in the bad part of town.
The door staff was friendly and Dahlya who was working the door taking tickets etc for Invisible Orange Promotions was a fantastic host as well.
So we get into the theater no problems at all all that were in attendance were happy and as I looked around found the staff chatting with patrons etc and all seemed to enjoy themselves as well.
Metsatoll was perfect for an opening act had only heard them a few days before the show I was intrigued to find out how they sounded live-they did not disappoint.
Estonian euphemism for
TYR would please the crowd with their tight set and great music.
The songs were tight and the reason myself and my friends Tazz and his wife Morgan went to begin with.
The band hails from Torshavn, Faroe Islands --Their subject matter revolves almost entirely around old Nordic Lore , Mythology and history.
Going outside we met and spoke with the lead guitarist( of TYR and he was quite nice-enjoying the tour he was.
They hail from Scandinavia and were musically the best show of the night(for me anyway).
Moonsorrow would then come on having not heard much of their work I was unknowing of their music at all. I was not impressed by the vocals, however the music was good. I have been to alot of concerts over my years so I know what I like and don't I just did not care for this band.
Here are a few more pics from the night.
Thank you for reading this
Hope you come back again
Till Next Time
