Another back to back entry which wasn’t planned because the Sci-Fi Spectacular and George Takei from Friday night was unexpected. Originally, I planned the Said The Ocean and Hey Ocean! concert as my returning blog entry from my so-called April hiatus. All I can say that I totally enjoyed Said The Whale and Hey Ocean! concert at Zaphod Beeblebrox as part of BC Scene. It’s my third time to see Said The Whale live and the first time to see Hey Ocean!. The crowd was red hot for both bands but it was fully packed for Hey Ocean! Said The Whale also had a good amount of crowd as well. The more I keep seeing Said The Whale, the more they keep turning up a notch for their performances. As you see on the photo, Amanda Putz was introducing to Said The Whale. The funny thing when I encountered her was that her CBC Radio 3 sweater (I think) was drenched because earlier tonight, it was raining. I stayed indoors the whole time. I was lucky to avoid the rain. I did not get to take a lot of photos for Hey Ocean! because the crowd was packed like crazy and tried to take some good shots. Overall, it was an excellent show and the Ottawa crowd loves British Columbia music bands.

I still like “Zero” by Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Finally, Brian Leung played the song on his Go West radio show on RTHK Radio 2. During his show (spoken in Cantonese), he mentioned the passing of Bea Arthur, who played Dorothy Zbornak, in The Golden Girls. I am still fond of the show because I grew up watching this sitcom and mentioned on his chatroom that the show was the Sex and the City at that time.
To round out my exciting week, I had a lion dance performance. It was at a church in Gatineau, QC. It was great to see the lion dance buddies but it was pretty chilly outside and I thought it would be warm for Sunday.
That was my Sunday.
