My friend Ben owns the Neptoon Record store on 22nd and Main in Vancouver.
He put together an 8 hour show here starting at noon on International Record Store Day.
This, by far, was one of my best birthday parties. I incorporated the show with my birthday and then had a long ass BBQ later on in the night.
Nardwuar put me in the spotlight and said happy birthday to me while he was performing. (If you can't tell that's me crowd surfing pffsht) I'd say this was probably one of my best birthdays aside from the first show I organized for my Bday when I was turning 15 and the Hokos Bday party 3 years ago.
(I'm posting this now because I just received these photos from Adam Smith, check out his website - he does a lot of awesome photography for a ton of artists!)
