This event has absolutely nothing to do with the OIympics. This event will be intimate and memorable. Luyas (members of the Bell Orchestre), from Montreal, play the Western Front on Saturday Feb 20th with locals Aunts and Uncles and Rose Melberg’s new band Brave Irene.
You will thank yourself for indulging in this beautiful reprieve from chaos!
This is something that we’ve tried and failed to do before. Finally it has happened. We’ve managed to get Headlights to play Vancouver. This is exciting for us, and exciting for them too, as they will then begin their tour with Pedro the Lion’s David Bazan. Sadly David will not be coming to Vancouver, but these Illinois born gems will be playing the Railway Club on Feb 28th (last day of the Olympics!)
Just to sweeten the deal, we’ve got Blank Cinema and Shane Turner Overdrive playing the bill too.
Tickets available at Scratch, Red Cat, Zulu and Ticketweb
I once read on another blog, “calling someone the best songwriter since Dylan is about as original as listening to MGMT”. Humorous and poignant, yes. However, The Tallest Man on Earth is certainly doing a good job of making people seem unoriginal. In support of his third album, The Wild Hunt, he will be playing St. James Hall on May 12th.
The proof is in the pudding:
Now how original do you feel? Tickets are available at Zulu, Scratch, Red Cat and Ticketweb this Friday.

Alright, we all know that the Olympics will bring mayhem. At the height of that mayhem…Foreign Born. The difference is, this is the best kind of mayhem. If you haven’t heard them before, take even one minute to check em’ out. A clean pair of undies might be needed.
Don’t let the Olympic walkups get there before you do! Get your tickets at Red Cat, Scratch, Zulu or Ticketweb. This is an EARLY show (7:30pm) on Saturday, Feb 27th.
If you were racking your brain trying to think of something to do next next Friday the 12th, think no more! Rah Rah, Like Animals Again, and Pineapple (members of the Neins Circa) are going to be putting on one hell of a show at the Railway Club. Mark it in your calendar and we’ll see you there!
Should the I.O.C. approve of a music as a recognized sporting event, FOREIGN BORN would surely stand highest on the podium. All flattery aside, this L.A. group have been breaking records all over the place; and almost as if it were planned this way (weird) they will be headlining right here in our host city on Feb. 27th. While the downtown core will be unbearable chaos during this time, FORTUNE SOUND CLUB will be the best place to escape it. So do yourself a favor and come check them out, with Philadelphian idols, FREE ENERGY. Minds will be blown.
Tickets available at Zulu, Scratch, Red Cat and Ticketweb
