What a year! It’s that time of year, get ready to be inundated with ‘Best of…’. This year I thought “lets get this out with more than 3 days left in the year”. I got to spend some serious time in “the pits” this year. I was fortunate enough to see some of my own favorites from Pearl Jam, Matt Andersen, and Red Hot Chili Peppers, to some of my faves growin’ up like Culture Club, Platinum Blonde, and Vanilla Ice. As well, getting to be a part of special moments from Sebastian Bach playing Barrymore’s, I Mother Earth and Edwin together again, and one of the most special being The Tragically Hip show last show in Ottawa.
Easier said than done going through the last 12 months of shows…here are some of my favourites. It’s harder than one would think. I tried to only include 1 shot from an artist (there’s always an exception to a rule, like Pearl Jam & James Bay). Also some artist aren’t here for various reasons like waivers, releases, band usage etc.
I gotta say it’s been a heck of a year for concerts for me, and 2017 is gonna be incredible in Ottawa. Make sure you get out and see a show or 3.
