The Skinny: It’s safe to say that Brighter Brightest delivers a killer set every time they come to Ottawa, and this last time was no exception. Performing alongside Ten Second Epic, Brighter Brightest really set the bar for the night with an amazing set full of songs that got the crowd singing and excited. Not only that, but we also all got to enjoy a solo acoustic set by Brighter Brightest’s own Derek Hoffman, which was a rare but real treat. Incredible night!

The Gear: Nikon D90, 14-24mm f/2.8


Born in 2003, V13 was a socio-political website that, in 2005, morphed into PureGrainAudio and spent 15 years developing into one of Canada's (and the world’s) leading music sites. On the eve of the site’s 15th anniversary, a full re-launch and rebrand takes us back to our roots and opens the door to a full suite of Music, Film, TV, and Cultural content.
