Dialing It In

Still playing around with the site design and such. I just can’t get it to a point that I am happy with how it looks. On top of that, I have been rather busy and haven’t had time to sit down and just work on it. Oh well, it will get there.

What the what?

Oh, well hello there. Welcome to my blog/photos/mess of a site. You may have arrived here via a couple of different domains. My long-time primary site has been Slightlynorth.com; hosted by Tumblr for the last few years. It started as an e/n site back in 1998. That was before we had powerful self publishing tools

Bob Mould & The Thermals at Showbox at the Market

Last night Showbox at the Market was host to Bob Mould and The Thermals. Portland Oregon’s The Thermals opened the night to a sparse crowd, but by the end of their 45 minute set the floor had filled up significantly and everyone was pretty into their indie post-punk sound. However, it was clear the majority

Chixdiggit / Old Wives / Smokejumper / Sweet Pups @ The Funhouse [Photo Gallery]

Calgary’s finest pop-punk band Chixdiggit played the other night at The Funhouse along with Old Wives, Smokejumper, and Sweet Pups. It was a really fun night of music and hanging out with friends. The only bummer was the thought of the looming closure of The Funhouse at the end of October. That didn’t keep us
