I Watched With Glee…
“Please allow me to introduce myself, I’m a man of wealth and taste…” okay, maybe just taste. And one of the tastiest nights of December is not necessarily on Christmas day, but it is when the folks at Hidden Charms and the Rickshaw put on the annual Fundrager to donate money to the greater Vancouver Food Bank. This year was the 8th annual event hosted some familiar faces and some must see acts that included Rich Hope, The Pointed Sticks, La Chinga, Slip Ons, The Knast, and highly sought after The Pack AD. Wow!! Get your Jack on and get down.
Raffles, prizes, and good times oh my! When you get a room full of people together to listen to some awesome bands playing tributes to Keith Richards and the Rolling Stones you can’t help but to have fun and that is exactly what Saturday night had in store for the sold out crowd. With this event always taking place so close to Christmas it really might just be a Christmas miracle that it sells out, but it is the simple fact the event can be trusted to run smoothly considering the major logistical nightmare that having that many performers taking to stage in such a short period of time. I mean, with all the other varying holiday events that are taking place a swarm of lovelies takes over the Rickshaw Theatre to pay homage to either the great bands, the Stones, the food bank, or just to a great time.
Apparently, this would be one of the last performances of The Pack AD in a while and the crowd roared along to their insanely awesome rendition of “Emotional Rescue” which has to be my absolute highlight for the night because… well it was the Pack. But then again, how can you ignore all the other amazing acts performing their faves? You can’t!
Rich Hope was again on point for the night with his zany ways and crowd pleasing moves. While the late 70s punk rock Pointed Sticks made a massive impact with “Mother’s Little Helper”.
We were there photo document the event so check out the photo links below and come back to see more shortly.
