Inspired by motivation but decided by desperation, International Blindfold plays as if the fate of the world depended on it (as it often does). Starting in 2012 the band is composed of musicians with diverse histories that have come together to make what is now the International Blindfold.
Blending elements of 70's punk and 80's metal bleeding into a 90's grunge sound, International Blindfold brings a unique tone that is all their own.
What is the International Blindfold??? By definition: An International Blindfold is how media manipulates information creating a blindfold around those who consume that information.
Illuminiferous is a collaboration of lantern-makers Jacquie Rolston and Lin Ho-You. We love crafting lanterns and all things that glow or illuminate. We're both long-time members of the Vancouver Folk Fest lantern committee. Our creations start as frames of flexible bamboo sticks welded together by hot glue. A layer of tissue paper is skinned over the frame then reinforced by several coats of thinned white glue. Inside the structure, candles or small battery-operated lights provide the lantern's magical glow. We've also constructed several lanterns using fabric instead of paper illuminated with LED lights instead of candles. With these few materials, passion and ingenuity, we've made a menagerie of luminous animals, creatures and icons of geekdom.
