I’ve posted some new (old) photos up on Flickr! These shots are from back in April at the 560 Club in Vancouver. Because one just isn’t good enough the club had a series of opening nights, one of them being the indie night with Library Voices and (the inaugural Peak Performance Project winners) We Are the City. Highlights of the evening included when all the members of Library Voices jumped on stage with sparklers during We Are the City’s set, and when I snapped a picture of the setlist from Library Voices.

Library Voices

On August 13th, We Are the City made the sad announcement that David would be leaving the band to pursue other interests. The split sounds amicable though with the transition being slow – David will stay with the band until they find someone who is the right fit for them and he will play in the remaining shows of 2010. According to the released statement the band has plans to write new material this fall and winter with a new album in the works for 2011, so there is no hint that We Are the City is slowing down anytime soon.

Upcoming tour dates:

September 4th 2010 – Squamish, BC – Live at Squamish Festival

September 23rd 2010 – Victoria, BC – Rifflandia Festival
