Month: May 2015

UPDATE: 2015-05-12

Summer is here! Knacker’s Yard has a busy schedule! The last month and half brought us back to Port Alberni where we played to a full house at Char’s Landing. A great gig! Earlier that day we performed at “Tartan Day,” downtown Victoria in Centennial Square for a very receptive audience. Tartan Day(part of the Highland Games Association)is a celebration of ancient Scott culture including traditional dance and sports. Check it out:
