Sometimes you luck out and one of your favourite bands happens to also be one of your friend’s favourite bands and they decide to celebrate their birthday by inviting everyone out to a show.    That’s what happened this year, when our friend Phil celebrated his birthday! Of course, Phil did meet my friend Shawn at one of MY birthday parties many years ago and that was how he found out about this band. I brought my camera.

All three bands that evening were fantastic!

Here is the first opening band The Fires Of…

They called out that it was Phil’s birthday, so he proudly went to the front of the stage, where he could enjoy two of his favourite things (beer and live music in case you were wondering!).

Happy birthday, Phil!  Thanks for inviting us to celebrate with you!
