Where: Mill Lake Park in Abbotsford, BC
When: June 27, 2015
Innerwild is a multi-genre spanning band consisting of Noel Gulbransen, Doug McFetridge, Bob Van Velzen, Freddie Schmidt, and Rick Noel. On June 27, 2015, Innerwild took hit the stage at Mill Lake Park in Abbotsford, BC. The show was included as a part of the 2015 Envision Concert Series.
Although it was ridiculously hot outside, the music was cool. It was the first time that I saw the band perform, but I enjoyed their renditions of a variety of different songs spanning across numerous genres. The band plays classic rock, blues, country, R&B, and more. I found it to be a solid setlist. Examples of songs that Innerwild played included: Mustang Sally, Moondance, and Night Train.
Overall, it was a good show. I look forward to seeing them play around the Fraser Valley again!
Hi Everyone! My name is Remington Fioraso. I am a graduate of the University of the Fraser Valley’s Bachelor of Arts program in Sociology, Anthropology, and Media and Communication Studies. Within my program, I focused on social media, learning about contemporary and classical sociological theory (Including Marx, Foucault, Bourdieu, and Durkheim), and communicating effectively in various modes and for different audiences (including oral communication, business communication, academic writing, entertainment media, and presentations utilizing visual media). Within my program, the question arose for many courses, “What is the relevance in the real world?” Stepping (temporarily) away from being in university, I gained an interest in Latin American development, social movements, and business. Sooner than later, I will be applying for post-grad programs to dive further into LA development and social movements to gain a theory-background in addition to a personal perspective onto the topics. In my free time, I love to travel, consume media, eat, listen to music, and write. Listening to music and writing led to my interest in working with Canadian Beats! I have been a part of the team since April 2014. A few of my personal highlights of interviews include ones with some of my favourite artists – Sumo Cyco, Madeline Merlo, and High Valley.
