Boasting local and international acts in well-curated venues, the very first Pretty Good Not Badfestival gave Victoria something new to trip out to. We saw Laurel Halo collab with Comp_Zit, got caught staring as Hyenaz scared the shit out of everyone sitting front row at Studio Robazzo and lost ourselves in the melodies of Jean-Michel Blais. Plus: Southwoods, EMP Interactions and more.
A fresh dollop of weird is coming Victoria’s way. From June 17-19, Pretty Good Not Bad will bring artists who thrive in the margins of familiarity to Vancouver Island for a weekend of unfamiliar festival programming venues.
