lounge act

Next Tuesday (June 24th), the City of Vancouver is hosting an open house from 4pm to 8pm in the Alma Van Dusen and Peter Kaye rooms of the VPL where they'll be collecting feedback for a review of liquor licensing in restaurants in Vancouver. Not specifically music related, but depending on how licenses that aren't liquor primary get revamped, it could be.

Tonight at 1114 E. Pender the Chris Bland Experience, Beggars & Chairs, Chris-a-riffic, Role Mach, Peter Plett, gr8-2000, and Leigh Hewitt play.

I also want to note that gr8-2000 is playing at Fake Disco at the Cobalt tonight, so that's triple duty for Tom. Youthful energy!

Tomorrow night Bend Sinister, Alphababy, and We Are the City are at the Media Club for a Kelowna ex-pat-stravaganza (I promise to never use that made up word again).

On Friday, Rich Aucoin is at the Peanut Gallery. Edo from the Clips and Brasstronaut supports with a solo set.

Also on Friday, the Doers, Cheerleader Camp, Mount Royal, Women, and Search Parties are at Little Mountain Studios.

You should really go check out Women at this show or Saturday (at Hoko's). Granted I haven't seen them live, but their record is one of my favourite's of the year... and it's been a pretty okay year thus far.

Also on Saturday, Defektors play the Sweatshop with Taxes and White Owl.

Flosstradamus are at the Sweatshop with those Half Alive guys on July 15th.

Conor Oberst brings supports his upcoming solo disc at Richard's on July 29th.

And, Lykke Li returns to town on October 28th at Richard's.

Hey, I'm really glad you mentioned the Women show, I just hosted a show for them here in Saskatoon last week and it was amazing! What a great, great band. I'd actually been thinking I should email you to give you a heads up, because they seem like they'd fit into the stuff you cover here.

i just saw women here in victoria tuesday night, and they slayed.

if you haven't seen them, you should really check out alphababy.
