Do you know what never disappoints? Beer, it’s always good to go. The streamlined bottle, the artful label, the 'tcshhh' it makes then you pop the top and that first sip that really brings it home and will ALWAYS be there for you. ALWAYS

Lonely Dear, Asobi Seksu & Sleepy Sun

CJSF volunteer Sam Carter escapes the fall chills to review Loney Dear at the Biltmore Cabaret... 

It was a mild October night when the double headlining team Loney Dear and Asobi Seksu graced the stage at the Biltmore Cabaret. Representing Sweden and New York respectively, the room was filled with a buzz that can only be attributed to the thrifty glee of experiencing two equally appealing bands for the price of one. However, cost effectiveness alone does not make a concert.

Coco Rosie

On Wednesday September 16th, France/NY’s nomadic sisters act Coco Rosie played a show at the Vancouver’s Red Room in promotion of their new full-length album anticipated in 2010, CJSF volunteer Lise Monique reviews...

The nights that I feel like getting out of my home can be compared to watching molasses coming out of a carton, eventually wanting to give up, stay in, and read a new novel or watch the food network. Knowing that Coco Rosie was playing on a gloomy falls eve, I was determined to spice my wardrobe up, put on red lipstick and get my ass down to the Red Room.

The Lovely Feathers with The Racoons

Yes, it was a blistering thirty-eight degrees yesterday, and no, the Railway Club most certainly did not have air conditioning. But did that stop The Lovely Feathers from ripping off their shirts, sweating profusely, and rocking the socks off every devoted fan that stuck around and endured the heat for the chance to dance like seizing madmen? Not one freaking bit.

For British Eyes Only

Two words: cute and fun. If I had to completely summarize Vancouver’s local band, For British Eyes Only, this would be them in simplest terms. But let me elaborate…

Cute, like you want to cover them in strawberry ice cream and lick them down head to toe; like you could pinch their sweet cheeks until they went black from blood loss; like you just can’t control the stupid goofy grin on your face when you watch them.
