Get Over the Loss of Pemby by going to The Center Of Gravity

Center of Gravity Festival I know a lot of people who bought tickets to PembyFest are probably, and rightfully, royally pissed off right now, but for every grey cloud you can find a silver lining. The silver lining could come in the form of WayHome who has generously offered ticket holders some deals, but there is a much brighter lining

The Flaming Lips live in Vancouver

The Queen Elizabeth Theatre or Alice’s Wonderland? In 1993 the world learned all about a girl who used vaseline, a guy who used magazines, and yet another girl that used tangerines (“She Don’t Use Jelly”) from an experimental psych rock indie type band from Oklahoma City… The Flaming Lips. Fast forward almost a quarter of a century and the Lips

Me First and the Gimme Gimmes live in Vancouver

Elton John, Dolly Parton and John Denver probably never played the Commodore, but their music still rings through the ballroom.

The band featured Spike Slawson

1975 live in Vancouver at the PNE Forum

The first time I caught the 1975 was at Venue Nightclub down on Granville Street. A few short years later and here they are at the PNE Forum having thousands of girls swooning. How has this group managed to get all the love from the girls? Matthew (Matty) Healy seams to be the answer. Is it his sweet sounds when he sings

BottleRock Napa Valley 2017 Schedule

The First Taste of Summer in the Napa Valley There is not much I appreciate more than good music, but when you add in some culinary dreams and pretty much have one of the best assortments of craft beers… look out!

Interview with Little Hurricane in Preview of BottleRock 2017

We’re only about a month away from BottleRock 2017 and our excitement for it to mark our first festival of the year is near exasperating.

The Zombies live at The Commodore Ballroom

It took 50 years for The Zombies to reach Vancouver, but it was absolutely worth the wait.

Blossoms live in Vancouver

Crucify me if you must… but last night’s Blossoms concert at the Fox Cabaret took me on a drive some 50 minutes away from their hometown to a place called Wigan. How did I end up having my mind race towards this other little Brit town? Starsailor! Summing up the sound of the band I would easily put them into the Starsailor

Mr. Roadhouse Swoons the Rio The mystery for many of us was revealed in Vancouver at the Rio Theatre as Mr. Roadhouse, aka Allan Rayman, started to open up a bit during his live concert!
