Frost Fest: Jon and Roy with The Zolas, Woodsmen, Grass Tracks, Dj Murge and Dj Marshall
The Strathcona was packed Thursday night as a huge amount of UVIC students took it over for their winter formal. I some how missed the whole “formal” part of the title Winter Formal and showed up in a hoodie, but such is my life.
There was a good size crowd in the Sticky Wicket to check out Grass Tracks and the Zolas but, Club 9one9 was absolutely packed with finely dressed university students listening to local bands Woodsman and Jon and Roy.
I settled into 9one9 to check out Woodsman. They caught my interest when I saw them perform last summer. Since then they have only gotten better and have earned themselves a nice local following.
Next was Victoria music scene staple; Jon and Roy. I am always glad to see this folk group perform. Thursday night was no exception, I grabbed a beer and my friends and together we pushed our way into the crowd to stand shoulder to shoulder and bob happily along.
