Brocken Spectre @ Converge Magazine Social

Brocken Spectre (Colin Ablitt, Nic Campbell, Colin Campbell, Scott Bjerkness) played our Converge Magazine social on Saturday, June 2, at the gorgeous Five Stones Church in New Westminster (exposed brick, hardwood floors, right on the river).

Playing an unfamiliar venue to a largely-unfamiliar crowd can be a big challenge. Being a social event with appetizers aplenty and drinks flowing, everyone is already pretty chatty. But halfway through their first song, “Parallel Dances“, something magical happened. A stillness was setting over the room; everyone was tuning in. A couple minutes later, and a big round of applause for a band that barely anyone in the room knew (yet).

Brocken Spectre will be playing a show with In Contra and Aida Saturday, June 16 at the Southside Community Church venue. Doors open at 6:39. Tickets are well-worth it at $10.

1st Annual Converge Magazine Social

I’ve been thrilled to write for Converge Magazine since its inaugural issue last year. It brings creative people together as we document, applaud, and critique events and trends in fashion, the arts, entertainment, and the world at large, and has been a great way to meet people. 

I know some of my blog readers, but many of you are anonymous. Nonetheless, I want to extend a warm invitation to all readers of my blog, if you are in the Vancouver area, to come to our social. Tickets and RSVP at the Facebook event page: http://www.facebook.com/events/326242700781344/

Hope to see you there.
