Delhi 2 Dublin 2 Vancouver Island
They say that the journey is the real adventure. What started as a one-night-only jam piece in 2006 has turned into international adoration for Vancouver’s Delhi 2 Dublin. Fusing musical roots from around the globe, these five eclectic musicians have created a sound that is far more than simply unique.
I first discovered Delhi 2 Dublin while wandering down Granville Street during the 2009 Juno Street Party, bounced with the crowd at last summer’s Big Time Out festival and last night celebrated the release of the band’s second studio record, Planet Electric. Rebecca and I made our way to the legendary Commodore Ballroom, a venue that was a dream come true for the band. While the new record is nothing short of a party in my living room, Delhi 2 Dublin is a band that’s a live band first and foremost.
Vancouver Islanders have a chance to see this musical gem in concert as Delhi 2 Dublin are playing a number of shows on the Island over the coming days.
Contact your local venue for tickets… that is, if there are any left. “Sold Out” is quickly becoming a term synonymous with Delhi 2 Dublin these days. The rest of my photos from last night can be found on my Flickr set.
