Ryeberg Live Vancouver 2012

RyebergCuratedVideo, “Ryeberg Live Vancouver: Tuesday, 6 March, 2012

Ryeberg travelled to Vancouver and found its people. Sincere thanks to every one of you who packed into the Cabaret Room of the Waldorf Hotel to make Ryeberg Live Vancouver such a glorious event. Michael Turner kicked off the show by throwing a frisbee into the audience and urging us to “live in fragments no longer.” Miriam Toews followed, asking us to join 30,000 Stoke football fans in a minute’s silence. After intermission, Charles Demers showed us whose houses to raid when the shit hits the fan, and Stephen Osborne closed the evening with his own “view cone” of historic Vancouver. Everyone went home with a copy of Geist Magazine and a whole lot to talk about.

The four Ryebergs performed at the show are yours to read on Ryeberg, and here are a few photos from Ryeberg Live Vancouver taken by Vancouver photographer, Christine McAvoy.
