The past few days have featured the bands that played at a charity show on behalf of the UVic Mental Health Awareness Club. It was called Music Matters: Stigma Shakers with proceeds going to NEED 2: Suicide Prevention Education & Support and the Victoria branch of the British Columbia Schizophrenia Society.
The show was emceed by Jon Williams a local radio station voice who also shared his experiences as a bipolar person. He did a great job of introducing speakers from the various organisations that are to benefit from the funds raised, and seemed particularly good at helping them to relax as they came onstage. It was pretty hard to keep him in focus as he paced the stage with super-abundant energy.
