At the Vancouver Island Music Fest

CFUV 101.9FM, the University of Victoria campus radio station, has seen fit to turn me loose on another event. This spring they had me cover the first Victoria Spoken Word Festival and I must have managed to mix just enough insight in with my dirty jokes for them to trust me with covering the Vancouver Island Music Fest in Courtenay. The event runs from Friday, July 8 to Sunday, July 10 and features headlining acts like hip-hop legends Arrested Development and (my personal favorite) Randy Newman. I'll be updating the CFUV VIMF blog with posts several times a day and have so far been keeping up a steady stream of photo updates on The Twitter.
All the photos are now up on the Largely the Truth Flickr account if you don't feel like wading through Twitter,
