The Georgia Straight


Couldn’t make it out last Saturday? You missed Nardwuar and Vancouver’s own garage rock band the Evaporators at Khatsahlano. 
Adrian Hertzberg was there and caught a moment of the show on Instagram. Here’s your concert pick of the morning. The Evaporators at the West 4th Ave Khatsahlano Street Party on July 12, 2014.
Thanks Adrian!

The Khatsahlano festival appeared in view like a desert mirage as you approached West 4th Avenue in the scorching sunshine, the fairground reaching circus proportions with 50 local bands across eight stages spanning 10 city blocks. What crazy nuts would brave the meltdown-level heat to see as many bands as humanly possible, pig out at up to 40 food trucks, and prowl the goods of hundreds of vendors from noon ‘til night? Well, the entire city of Vancouver—or at least that’s what it looked like.

The turnout for the 4th annual music and arts festival was massively impressive, not to mention refreshingly diverse. In one sweeping glance you could spot little tykes toting balloon animal crowns, old gay couples sipping lemonade, and green-haired fashionistas stomping along in combat boots. A shout-out goes to the girl who cried out in passing, “So many good-looking people here. I can’t….”

Surf’s up in Kitsilano. Kind of. 

These days, it’s not unusual to see more than a hundred board aficionados west of Kits Beach. With school out, numbers swell even higher as skimboard camps are in session.

Sadly the pool doesn’t open until the May long weekend. Stay cool out there until then, folks!
