Back on the road, and we brought a friend!
Hey friends! We are finally back on the road this week after spending a good week in Victoria catching up, and it feels so good! We brought a friend with us this time around, to take some beautiful photos and videos and help us sell our finest and cheapest of Acres Of Lions products directly to you at the gigs… Her name is Lindsey Blane. She is an excellent photographer, experienced cat lover, kind of a big deal and an all around good buddy… we are so excited to have her travel with us for the next week, hopefully scar and trauma free! The first stop was The Royal on Baker St in Nelson BC! It was a rather rainy Sunday evening, but it didn’t seem to stop the great >> read more

Releasing “Home(s)’ into the wild = Excitement!
Following an incredible gig in Vancouver at Joe’s Apartment last Thursday, with talented babes Ali Milner and Zerbin (It really was an incredible gig… there were some pretty epicly amazing high fives given out during our performance) we said goodbye to Vancouver and our Vancouver besties, and gave a very fond hello to our fair home city of Victoria. The ferry ride was a bit more bearable this time around… one could even say we missed it like nothing else… Here’s a few shots FROM THE GARAGE took from the Joe’s Apartment Gig (Thurs, March 28) The next night we had our official “Home(s)” album release party at Lucky Bar with Chris Ho and Sunhawk. It felt nice to be back in a familiar venue with familiar faces and that >> read more

Good day at The Peak!
Yesterday, we had the divine pleasure of spending a solid hour at Vancouver’s best station, 102.7 The Peak (DUH), and although it wasn’t quite time for their legendary “Beer Club,” something I think we can all enjoy, and have, thoroughly in the past, we still had a great time with them fine folks, as expected. We had a brief chat with the warm and kind likes of James Sutton and Carly Walde on the air, and we were even given the privilege of performing an acoustic version of our new single “Bright Lights” for the listeners… check it out! A huge thanks goes out to The Peak for spinning our new song “Bright Lights” and for their constant support of our craft. It was a pleasure and we hope we >> read more
