The Dirty Nil, NEEDS, and BRASS

Due to vehicle troubles, the main act Single Mothers couldn’t make it to their show on March 3 at the Electric Owl. Fortunately their supporting acts Dirty Nil and NEEDS made sure the show went on, only at a slightly smaller venue space: the Electric Owl basement.

Weed Tour Kickoff

It is shows like this that make me so thankful to be a tall girl. Seattle neo-punk trio So Pitted kicked off their first song at 7:23PM sharp, and though I was mid-interview with a pair of rad ladies who make great radio at CiTR, they sounded supreme.

Malk Release Show

On December 12th, I went to 333 and saw a few local bands. I had three major reasons for attending said show: first, I didn't know pop punk dudes Hermetic were still playing; second, it was one of my favourite Vancouver mainstays, Crystal Swells, last show; and third, it was to be my first time seeing a band called Malk.

Rachel Yamagata

It was a dark, rainy and blustery evening to go out and see a show but Rachael Yamagata is a show I would not miss.  The Biltmore Cabaret is perfectly cozy enough for Rachael Yamagata’s music. October 21st's show did not disappoint. Rachael has some very competent and compelling artists touring with her for this tour and they delivered nicely.

Metsatöll

There has been a lot of debate recently on whether rock and metal are dead. I'm just an unpaid metal DJ on a small campus/community radio station and my opinion is usually worth about what I'm being paid for it, but I listen to enough rock and metal and go to enough shows to say with confidence that these styles of are far from dead. The days of bands getting multimillion dollar corporate record deals may be a thing of the past (and I'm not sure that is necessarily a bad thing) but the music is far from dead. Rock is very much alive. Metal in particular is everything it ever was and more.

Christopher Owens

Dressed in Californian 70’s attire with disco balls hanging parallel to each other in opposite corners of the stage, Christopher Owens and his band cast a dizzying set that contrasted to the dingy, yet comfortable feeling of the Biltmore.
