Is there a better feeling than Friday? Today is filled with music, all of which wants to get you up and dancing and having a good time!

Here are 5 things to do in around Victoria today!

Band of Rascals

What: “Nuts and bolts rock ‘n’ roll” is how to describe the dynamic fusion of explosive drums, driving guitars, and inimitable vocals that is Band of Rascals. The Victoria, BC based four-piece has quickly established itself as a major force in the Western Canadian music scene; the result of an overwhelmingly successful year of sold out shows, multiple festival slots and the release of their critically acclaimed self-titled debut EP.

Cost: Tickets are $15 in advanced – get your tickets here!

Carlos Del Junco & The Blues Mongrels

What: To say Carlos Del Junco plays the harmonica is like saying “Jimi Hendrix plays guitar”. He blows the blues harp through a prism — suddenly it seems he’s holding every color in the musical rainbow right there in his hands. A sound that is at once sensitive, soulful, and sexy while never forgetting the rawness inherent in blues music.
