VANCOUVER – Much like the setting in of seasonal affective disorder in Winter, we have entered a period of time known as the summertime blues. Most of your friends are probably camping or going to festivals every weekend, and there aren’t a lot of shows happening in town to distract you. Hopefully, these will be enough to break up the doldrums.
