The Rodney Graham Band at Candahar, Vancouver – photo by Ken Eisner
I finally made it to Candahar, the bar/artwork at Granville Island last night just in time to watch Rodney Graham doing his sound check for a performance that would start a couple of hours later.
Named after a Belfast street, The Candahar is Theo Sims’s vision of an Irish bar. A sculptural installation with real beer on tap.
Rodney Graham is a legend of Vancouver’s photoconceptualism and I was surprised to find out about his musical skills. He sounds a lot like Lou Reed.
