“It’s hardly a shock that when the Straight gets hold of Tyson Yerex, the Victoria-based musician isn’t at home. He’s on his way there, on a ferry from the mainland, but the Acres of Lions keyboardist and guitarist won’t be staying long. His band has been on the road for the past four months, almost solidly. “We’ve only been back to Victoria two or three times,” Yerex says, “and only for a day or two.””
Acres of Lions plays West Vancouver’s John Lawson Park on August 5 as part of the Harmony Arts Festival. The band also plays at North Van’s Lonsdale Quay Market on August 6 at 1 p.m. as part of SummerFest.
