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. Like most years the lineup of bands, culinary artists, wines, brews, and food is utterly outstanding so whether you are going mainly for the Foo Fighters, Martha Stewart, or a Red Seal Ale from North Coast Brewing

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

Game Of Thrones Live Concert Experience in Vancouver

Music Is Coming!! From the start I must admit that when I heard of the Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience I rolled my eyes.

Allan Rayman live in Vancouver

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!

The Mississauga rock band, touring on their fifth studio record Afraid of Heights, performed a

A Monday Night Rager Upon seeing the Facebook event for Alex Maher’s EP release party I was instantly drawn in by the visual of the album. Who is this guy and what is his music all about?
