Start practicing your jazz hands

The Vancouver International Jazz Festival is in full swing.


Went with my ladyfriends to see Vancouver’s Brasstronaut at the Commodore.


Which was like a reunion of sorts.


Because Laura, Ashley and I have known lead singer Edo Van Breemen since elementary school. We’ve been good friends with his sister since the first time scrunchies and spandex were cool. (Wish you were there, Elke!)


And I realize that I am completely biased, but Brasstronaut was absolutely amazing.


They were animated, they sounded even better than they do on their album, and they were downright fun to watch.


Wore a vintage dress that may very well have belonged to your Great Aunt Helga. And I’m not kidding. Just look at what it looked like before.


Wore it with flat boots. Always flat boots at concerts (dancing shoes, ya know?).


The Vancouver International Jazz Festival runs until July 4th. Go! Take your friends! Have fun!

P.S. Put your jazz hands to good use and follow The Anthology on Twitter.

    Brasstronaut looked super fun! I completely agree that flats are essential at concerts. We’ve all learned that one the hard way :P
