COUNTDOWN TO RIFFLANDIA! SIXTEEN “MUST SEE” ACTS: SIXTH INSTALLMENT (Victoria, BC Sept. 11th – 14th)

Six, six, pick up sticks:

RENNIE FOSTER (Vancouver)
rennie-foster-lessthan3-v2

There’s gonna be a lot of good house/techno/electro/DJ music at the Riff, but I just had to single out Rennie Foster because he’s something of a legend here on the West Coast and has been a Rifflandia favourite in past years. Foster spent several years as part of Japan’s club scene where he was consistently ranked as one of their top DJ’s. Catch him late night Friday.
