Born and raised in the city of Calgary, Alberta, FOONYAP started violin lessons at the young age of four, entering the Mount Royal Conservatory of Music by as early as age eleven. During these years, FOONYAP frequently found herself engrossed in a self-propelled battle, generated and fueled by a non-negotiable need to align with the boundaries established by her demandingly inflexible life.

LITO FORD (Real Eyes) https://www.realeyestalent.com/artists Full time mama of sassy twins, part time disco dancing record collector, Lito Ford enjoys every opportunity to provide music for her friends. From making mix tapes with her mum’s record collection as a child, to browsing record stores through her teens, to inheriting a life changing record collection and discovering the internet (read: discogs), there has seldom been a time in her 33 years when records are far from reach. Over the last 20 years of listening to electronic music, one of the most highly influential discoveries arrived with the 2004 release of Morgan Geist’s ‘Unclassics’ album: the introduction of Italo Disco to Lito Ford. The instant love prompted a musical journey that continues to grow to this day. When asked to explain the difference between mainstream disco and her much preferred underplayed gem... more...

BOUSADA
Equipped with a loop pedal, midi controller and a mic, BOUSADA’s unique sound and high-energy performances are rooted in his passion for building community. Using found sounds, succulent tones and deep bass, his mesmerizing performances and incredible showmanship awes crowds and is almost as much fun to watch as it is to dance to.

Zoo Riots, Peach Pit, Andrew Phelan , Teenage Wedding @ Copper Owl Mar 3 2017
2100
$10 at the door only.
Zoo Riots With a loud and frenzied live show that dips heavily into the melodic and mysterious, Zoo Riots’ competing influences of psychedelia, indie, blues, and soul merge to full effect. Intricate vocal and guitar harmonies, thundering dual percussion, and groove heavy bass lines are key features of their ever expanding sound that aims to keep audiences guessing as much as dancing. PEACH PIT With lyrics rooted in high school heartbreak and self deprecation, Peach Pit spin stories of backstabbing best friends and drug addicted tour guides. Having the dance moves of an epileptic headbanger and the body of a 14 year old girl, Neil brings a unique energy to their live shows while the rest of the band does their best to keep it weird. Andrew Phelan "Andrew Phelan has a sleeper of a voice-the kind that can lull one moment, and knock you back with its power the next" - Sa... more...

For this workshop we are looking at some communal, creative, literary magic for folks of all interests and levels. This workshop is a playful, open invitation to anyone interested in writing in a setting that focuses on generative energy, experimentation, and sharing. I truly believe in the innovative potential of impromptu writing and group discussions. For this workshop we will work through a couple of on-the-spot writing exercises and prompts to jolt us out of our habits and to explore some new directions. We'll connect over what inspires and frustrates us in the process. Please bring paper, writing utensils, poems and sections of prose by authors who inspire you (to read aloud), and beloved objects for a communal altar. This workshop is PWYC/$5 suggested donation/No one turned away for lack of funds. For more information about this kind of workshop: http://www.sadmag.... more...

Strike A Pose Dance Party: DJ Nova Jade* Greene @ Copper Owl Feb 9 2017

During the AIDS crisis in the 1990’s seven young dancers joined pop star Madonna on her most controversial world tour, Blond Ambition. These flamboyant dancers became icons of sexual freedom, inspiring people all over the world to be their own unique selves. What wasn’t known then was that three of these dancers had been diagnosed with HIV before they joined the tour and one of the seven would die from AIDS-related complications in 1995. The six surviving dancer’s stories became the narrative of a new follow up documentary to “Truth or Dare” called “Strike a Pose” which will be screening on February 9th at the Vic Theatre as part of the Victoria Film Festival. To honour their spirit of freedom and joy in the face of adversity we are throwing an after party following the showing of “Strike a Pose”.

From 1991 until 2005 Sunshine Jones was on the road. The first gig outside of the legendary Dubtribe house was at a storefront on Haight Street in San Francisco. The first booking was from a guy named Paul who was at one of the monthly parties – he was standing there in the middle of the front room dance floor trying to find the DJ. I was watching him as he realized that there was no DJ, that the music everyone was dancing to was bring made live and it was a beautiful thing. He begged us to play for him, and so we agreed that we’d come to his club and perform. But before that, our friend Perry asked us to come up to his storefront and play.

$8 at the door only.
A night of music that will move you..... $8.00 BILLIE ZIZI: http://billiezizi.com/home There's a certain amount of misdirection in the blues-jazz title track of Billie Zizi's debut album in that it doesn't quite prepare you for the wooziness to come. Sure, there's plenty of Gypsy violin(courtesy of Zizi's pops, Cam Neufeld) scattered throughout, snaking through Windog Blues, bringing an irresistible jauntiness to Dancing Shoes, but Zizi's heart is apparent when she slows everything down to mournful. Like the looping backwards guitar melting into the sparsest of intros on You Do Me No Good, with Zizi abandoning almost all lyrical drive by simply repeating in an oddly matter-of-fact voice “drag me down” over and over again on the chorus, or the long, slow build in Jukebox Baby, leading to chaotic squalls of Zizi's guitar. A fine first album, laying down ground work for what will n... more...

Boreal Sons: Calgary band Boreal Sons, Evan Acheson, Regan Cole McLean, and Zach Schultz, never had the same guitar player for any two consecutive releases so when they finished touring overseas in 2014, they found themselves at a sonic crossroads. They were filled with doubt and uncertain about their future. This identity crisis drove Boreal Sons to forge ahead without a guitarist and experiment with their sound in their sophomore album You & Everyone. Under the guidance of producer Jonathan Anderson (Aidan Knight, Jordan Klassen), You & Everyone is a textured and emotive affair filled with a bevy of keyboards, layers of synths, the gritty bass of McLean, and Shultz’s commanding percussion section. With Acheson’s sonorous voice an anchor throughout, the album is a mix of light (“Strangers”) and dark (“Midnight Mass”), introspective downtempo tracks (“All Catastrophe Di... more...

His propulsive improvisations utilize voice and reeds (primarily bass clarinets and his invention the Bromiophone) as multiphonic tools in the navigation of liminal spaces between shamanic seance and rock and roll ecstasy.

Kathryn Calder returns to the Copper Owl this time she brings with her The Burning Hell. Tickets are $12 at the door. No advance tickets at this time.

Garden City Grooves presents Tanika Charles, one of Canada's most talented soul singers, in concert Tuesday May 24th at the Copper Owl. Tanika is touring in support of her full length debut, Soul Run, which will be officially released on May 10. She will be joined on stage by her band of stellar musicians for an incredible evening of soul music. In five short years Tanika Charles has transformed from an emerging solo artist to a commanding performer and band leader, a staple of the Canadian festival scene. Both on stage and off, Edmonton-raised Charles presents an immutable charm, at times endearingly abrasive and honest in her vulnerabilities. Her art is inherently autobiographical. If Tanika’s singing it, she’s lived it. With 2016 comes the release of Tanika Charles’ long-anticipated debut LP, Soul Run.

Wired To The Sky https://wiredtothesky.bandcamp.com/releases Wired To The Sky is the newest project from Canadian songwriter Dylan Perkons. The singer takes his imaginative dark folk to new heights with the help of Pat McTaggart, Michael Van Lewis and Spencer “Nevada” Brown. Mining the depths of roots rock with healthy doses of psychedelia and excursions into otherworldly blues, the group inhabits a space nestled somewhere between Townes Van Zandt via Our Mother the Mountain, Crazy Horse guitar freak-outs and Exile-era Stones. Taking equal inspiration from the great storytellers of Nashville and the weird, wild psyche of 60s California, Wired To The Sky combine a vast array of influences to deliver a sound that is both rooted in tradition and forward in ambition.

It comprises obscure, atypical examples of genres such as new wave, so-called "minimal" electronic or synthesizer music, electropunk, synthpop, post-punk, coldwave, electroclash and electropop."

MARK AND DARYL Side project of Mike Edel and Derek Janzen from Island Eyes. https://islandeyes.bandcamp.com/ http://mikeedel.com/ SCOTTY HILLS http://www.scottyhills.com/ Scotty Hills sings of love gone wrong, with a feeling of freedom and fearlessness. Bluesy, sleeper anthems that look into future human relationships. Never wearing his influences on his sleeve, Scotty draws from city blues, r n’b, old country, and soul music, then exhales a voice that is an equal sum of them all. Stories and voice, like the farm when you were 4, and granddad’s records, juxtaposed with post modern leanings. Akin to a well oiled machine, on a well travelled road. This January, one of two self produced Ep’s will be released, collectively titled “The Great Regression”. The Juno nominated singer now makes his home on Vancouver Island, Canada.

North of Here: https://www.facebook.com/NorthOfHereMusic Fox Glove: http://www.foxglovemusic.ca/ Justine Vandergrift: http://www.justinevandergrift.com/ About North of Here: After first piecing together an odd arsenal of instruments and modern-folk harmonies in 2012, the sounds of North of Here have grown into a rich and unique collection of voices and awfully catchy hooks. They continue to produce original music at an alarming rate in preparation for their busy year ahead. If thereʼs one thing to be expected at a North of Here show, itʼs an engaged and involved crowd. If the foursome's on-stage group dynamics and the hit-or-miss wit of their banter doesnʼt get you, the high-energy performance will have you stomping, clapping or singing along (possibly all three) to one song or another. Collaborative writing amongst the group is a strong point, balancing a set that ... more...

The NakedDjs have been terrorizing the coastal island communities with musical entertainment since 2008. Originally from the sheltered waters of Cortes Island, the NakedDjs Benjamin Eliah Howells, Justin Stirn (aka Dubtecha, & Mike O’Donnell (aka The MOD) now base their operations in the Comox Valley. They are generally found hosting, performing at, and producing some of the best events on Vancouver Island. The NakedDjs have brought in a new kind of life to the valley with the founding of Little Island Productions, and if you’re from the Island, or surrounding communities, you have probably heard of their events. To name a few: The Hornby Island Get Up, Reggae Night, Winter Solstice, and of course the celebrated Carrington Bay Camp Out which is approaching its two-decade anniversary as a free summer festival!

After a long hiatus from playing live, this will be his first show in Victoria. From ballofwax: "Brad Dunn is yet another of Seattle’s all too well-kept secrets. Whether spewing noisy, somewhat-tonal guitar riffs with his old band Sleepy Workers or creating masterpieces of brooding pop music under his own name, Mr. Dunn can do little wrong to my ears. Brad Dunn’s sound is somehow timeless – there are echos of Lee Hazlewood, Ennio Morricone, and 90s guitar bands such as Polvo a... more...

Tickets are 15$ (available at the door), doors at 730pm. About the Walbran After massive protests and public outcry in the early 1990’s over proposed clear-cutting in the Carmanah and Walbran Valleys, the provincial government created the Carmanah Walbran Provincial Park. While the park protects some incredible forest, the government left the roughly 500-hectare Central Walbran Valley out of the park. The Central Walbran contains arguably the most impressive and massive trees on the Island, in areas like the Castle Grove and Black Diamond Grove. Now a new company, Teal Jones, has its... more...

Cover: $10. ..PARAB POET AND THE HIP HOP HIPPIES.. The Hip Hop Hippies formed in 2012 when Parab Poet (The Hip Hop Hippie) introduced live instruments into his show. Starting with only live percussion and a DJ, the group gradually evolved into a very unconventional folk/hip hop concoction, with addition of marching kick drum, glockenspiel, violin, bass and trumpet. The alternate instruments mixed with the classic turntablist and emcee combination, has created quite a flavour-filled experience! Lighting up stages and crowds with their brand of hip hop music, Parab Poet and co. have made a lot... more...

He is the modern embodiment of the traveling bard and the singing troubadour. Kyle's discography is vast and impressive, full of tunes that are plucked from the lexicon of great American songwriting. On his latest effort, EXPLAINS, he crafts melodies so haunting and familiar; it's as if he's not composing them at all. He is tapping into something greater, acting as a vessel for the collective unconscious that is folk music. This is an album that is immediately accessible and also unfolds slowly, revealing greater depth with each listen. Kyle's lyrics are direct yet poetic, funny yet sad. EXPLAINS is a fantastic record that celebrates the ... more...

FIver “Fiver is the solo project of Toronto-born and raised singer and songwriter Simone Schmidt, known for fronting The Highest Order (a band that just released its debut album, If It’s Real, back in March, 2013) and the acclaimed country outfit One Hundred Dollars. No matter which name she is performing under, two strengths of Schmidt’s that immediately arrest you are that voice – awesome and haunting, strong as oak but sanded with sublime vulnerability – and the palpable Dust Bowl-thick instrumental air that fleshes out the mood of every song. Each is so commanding that it’s a testament to her gifts for bleak, poetic firepower and sure-handed nuance that neither crumbles under the magnitude of the other.” - Justin Wesley, No Depression http://www.fiverfiverfiver.com/ https://fiverforreal.bandcamp.com/ https://www.facebook.com/fiverfiverfiver DARCY HANCOCK ... more...

It all started with two 15's in the back of his '78 Corolla and has pretty much gone down hill since then. Hailing from the lazy left-coast of Florida, he spent most of his DJ life in Atlanta; now residing in Seattle, via Chicago. All the manifestations of house music are game: from slo-mo disco-infused jams to tripped-out techno and everything else in between. Being part of both the Atlanta-based Warm Art music collective and a resident with Cardio has allowed him to play alongside dozens of artists, including several of his music idols, such as Charles Webster and Morgan Geist, as well as tech stalwarts like Ame, Alexi Delano and Franklin de Costa.

Jeff Kalesnikoff Victoria BC native and Indie-Pop-Rock singer/songwriter/madman Jeff Kalesnikoff is no stranger to the ups and downs, the overall euphoria and the crushing lows of being a wayward touring musician trying to successfully juggle a life of normalcy and fantasy. In fact, he has let the glorious struggle inspire him to finally leave his comfort zone and break out with his own brand of acoustic-indie-rock songs about breaking hearts, introversion, being stupid in love, depression, smoking with celebrities and the overprivileged. He doesn't like to call it Emo, but growing up with nothing but bands like Saves The Day, The Get Up Kids, The Promise Ring and Jimmy Eat World, how could he not? Although this is Jeff's first true solo venture, in the last 7 years, he has written and released 3 albums and 2 Singles (Cordova Bay Entertainment/AlcopopUK/Fierce Panda UK) and perform... more...

Concealer Sleazy rock and roll and proto-punk collide with emotionally naked post-folk. “One of the stranger musical partnerships to have ever risen from the Edmonton music scene” (Vue Weekly), Concealer combines disparate musical traditions to create melodic and hypnotic Heavy Wave. Polaris Music Prize nominated songwriter Mark Davis sings and plays treated bass. And, when not striking poses, missmannered supplies keyboard drones and dial-twisting shrieks and blips. Ancient drum machines provide static beats. Flamboyance spars with stoicism. Ambience flirts with aggression. From sinister to soothing and back again.

Doors @ 8PM / $10 Cover Wendy McNeill / Originally from the Prairies of Canada, Wendy's songs retain her love of wide open space and the longing that such big skies can generate. She is a fan of underdogs, strange cats and brave hearts. These characters are often the centerpieces of her songs which she creates using looped vocals, accordion, and guitar. Described as an artist that makes 'dark twisted tales' and 'wise moving music', she has been steadily gaining acclaim for her poignant lyrics and captivating live shows.

Her songs are fine-tuned delicacy with a snarl and her shows laced with disarming candor. Proudly carrying the torch of her love for the domestic arts (she is from South Dakota, after all), Rachel’s homemade preserves and hand stitched notebooks can often be found at shows, nestled amid the 180 gram vinyl, cds and t-shirts. Rachel is currently promoting Ghost of a Gardener, her first record in five years which Uncut calls a "Gorgeous gush of warm-blooded harmonies" and Maverick UK states is a "technicolor treasure in word and melody."

Come and double click with us this month as we explore INTERNET.
