Another in my series of featured artists from Rifflandia this year.
I first saw Helio Sequence at Sub Pop's 20th in Seattle a few years ago. They blew my mind, and I became huge fan. I've always wanted to see them again, but their shows in Vancouver and Seattle were always at awkward times for me. I could never escape the island to see them, and it was clear they were never coming here.
When they played their debut show here in Victoria during Rifflandia I was floored. They've put out two records since the first time I saw them, and man is their new stuff live fantastic. The Metro is a weird place to shoot, but I was there for the music not the photos.
