Los Van Van in Toronto

Los Van Van on Stage

Last weekend, my wife Michelle and I went to see Los Van Van in Toronto at the Sound Academy. We got there relatively early so we were able to get almost right in front of the stage, but it turned out to be a terrible angle to get any good photos and way too loud to get good video. (I had my musicians’ ear plugs in all night and it was still pretty loud; I don’t know how anyone survived the night without ear plugs!)

Here are some photos I took that night:
