That’s the summation of my experience so far with this site.  I honestly had no idea what to expect when I started doing this.  I didn’t really know if I’d like it or be able to keep up with it – I was just trying to find a way to use my addiction to music in a creative way.

Then came the first email from a label rep, asking me if I wanted to interview a band.  So I figured I’d start writing to other bands coming to Burlington, and see if they’d answer some questions too.  Much to my surprise, it worked, and I’ve been able to “interview” some really interesting folks.

I was on a roll so about two months ago, I figured what the hell, why don’t I try and get press credentials to Osheaga.  So I filled out their form and sent in my letter.  Much to my surprise, that also worked.  Today, I received notification that I’ve been granted a photog pass, meaning I’ll be able to bring my SLR camera (and brand new telephoto lens) instead of just my small LX-3 (which is a wonderful camera, particularly in low light, but a festival setting can be a bit more difficult to get to where you need to get to in order to get a good shot).

I can’t wait for Osheaga, and I can’t wait to share my photos and experiences from the festival on here.
