This afternoon I headed out to the Commodore (with Raul in tow) to interview one of my all-time favourite bands. Chris Demakes of Less Than Jake was great to talk to and we’re really looking forward to the show tonight.

Tickets are still on sale but they’re going fast. As this is a quick episode, you have time to listen to the conversation, the tunes, and still make your way down to the Commodore for the show as Less Than Jake takes the stage around 11:15pm.

Special thanks go to Tris for lending me his audio recorder for this episode (although my mic levels are all over the place). Our mobile podcasting gear is still missing/nowhere to be found so we’re making due right now and getting by thanks to the generous social media community in Vancouver.
In preparation for my campaign on National Digital Media Day (September 25th) I have been planning a campaign that would take me mobile. Thanks to Zipcar, I will be able to travel across the region, blogging at every stop. I decided to interview John MacSween of Zipcar to discover more about their services.
You can follow along on the 25th on my website, with all posts tagged: NDMD08.
The super special Miss604 referral link for Zipcar will be published on every blog post I write on September 25th so stay tuned.
Trying my hand at podcast producing yet again, we go mobile for this special episode. Yesterday Keira and I met up with Zac, Taylor and Isaac Hanson before their show in Vancouver. We learned about The Walk, what they’ve been up to in the 8 years they’ve been away from our city, and most of all that these grown men truly do have talent and a whole lot of heart.

My official article has been posted on E!Online. You can also check out Keira’s wrap up blog post, including her photos, as along with my recap blog post. Big shout out to Dave as well for lending me his M-Audio since our mobile gear has gone missing.
I sat down in a local coffee shop, opened up my MacBook (since our mobile gear is missing), and had a chat with Mark Latham of Voter Media and the Vancouver Election Blog Contest.
