Called upon to share BC’s most desirable stages with the likes of Latmun, Mark Knight, Gene Farris, Eats Everything, Shiba San and Sonny Fodera to name a few, the past few years have seen nothing but Sivz’s ambition establishing herself as a leading creator and curator of All Things House. One of Vancouver’s most active DJs with a reputation for her selections, relentless hustle and local contributions, she is regularly found drawing a dedicated fan base across town while holding her residencies at MIA and Gorg-O-Mish Afterhours. Equally popular beyond home base, Sivz has performed at prestigious BC music festivals including Bass Coast, Snowbombing Canada and Motion Notion. Expect a chunky, yet funky, sound characterized by fat kicks, simple basslines, endless bass-facing, and dirty vocals that bring a satisfying dose of attitude to any room.

Fri. October 19th  Richard Reed Parry, Corwin Fox

Richard Reed Parry, Corwin Fox @ Copper Owl Oct 19 2018 - Oct 20th @ Copper Owl
7:00 PM
$22.50 Ticket Info
A man travelling in a foreign land wanders through a forest of ghosts, who sing his past back to him. A rainstorm that starts and never ends. A boy dissolves into a body of water. These images inspire music that tells the story of two spheres: in one, an embodied experience of the physical world; in the other, something disembodied, dissolved and oceanic. Japanese folk myths, death poems and British folk music are tributaries flowing into a river of late-20th century avant-garde composition and traditional songcraft, written and performed by a member of a Grammy-winning rock band. This is a meditative, widescreen musical experience with Beach Boy harmonies and a hypnotic pulse. Layered songs that move in a linear fashion, following a current rather than circular composition. This is Richard Reed Parry’s Quiet River of Dust.Being released as two volumes, Quiet River of Dust Vol. 1 will be available on the start of the autumn equinox, September 21 2018. Quiet River of Dust Vol. 2 is coming out next year on the spring equinox 2019.

Long before he joined Montreal’s Arcade Fire in 2003, Parry grew up in a thriving folk music community in Toronto, where house parties were full of singing, where weekly gatherings featured dances of the British Isles, where all the progeny were routinely corralled into singing on popular children’s albums. While a student of electroacoustic music and contemporary dance in university, he formed the instrumental ensemble Bell Orchestre, who have released three albums, with another expected soon. In 2014, he released an album of biologically inspired compositions, Music for Heart and Breath, on the prestigious Deutsche Grammophon classical label.

Quiet River of Dust has been slowly gestating for the last decade, in many ways a necessary respite from Parry’s other gigs. Creating this music grew into a meditative practice. “I’m lousy at sitting still and being nothing,” he says. “But being out in the natural world or being immersed in music is the meditation for me. That’s the heart of this record: the experience of transcending the place that you’re in, getting lost in the feeling of where you end and where the world begins, in a dreamlike world of music and thought.” It is music meant to be absorbed in a setting devoid of other distractions, not shuffled into your streaming playlist—a tall demand these days but one worth the time.

The genesis of these songs came after Arcade Fire’s first tour of Japan in February 2008. Parry stayed on for weeks after the last show, heading to a monastery for some solace in “the biggest silence you’ve ever heard.” One day he was walking alone in a massive, snow-covered cedar forest when he heard distant voices, voices that sounded a lot like his father’s folk group back in Toronto, Friends of Fiddlers Green. (Parry was 18 when his father died in 1995.) “There was no reason for something to sound like full-throated, British-Isle folk singing there,” he recalls. “I walked and walked but I could never get closer to where the music was coming from.” The ghostly experience inspired the song “On the Ground,” which in turn inspired the rest of the song cycle. When it came time to record “On the Ground,” he enlisted his father’s former colleagues on concertina, Northumbrian pipes and fiddle.

More material began to flow, including one song on Vol. 1called “River of Death” and another about a small boy who disappears into the ocean while his parents are sleeping on the beach. On a return trip to Japan years later, Parry was on a hike by a hot-spring river when he saw a sign directing travelersto a “River of Death” (“Sai No Kawara”). He learned that it was a pre-Buddhist mythological concept of a place where parents go to mourn dead children, a body of water understood to be a liminal space between life and an afterlife.

ABOUT BEN KUNDER & "BETTER HUMAN" |
"Better Human" is Ben Kunder's dazzling new album and confident follow-up to his 2015’s internationally acclaimed album "Golden". This 9 song collection fearlessly explores themes like the birth of a child, the struggle for life balance and the workday reality propping up our outward facade to name a few. Teaming up with engineer/producer Aaron Goldstein at Baldwin Street Sound last fall, "Better Human" is host to several esteemed players - bassist Anna Ruddick (Randy Bachman, Bry Webb, Ben Caplan), Arkells drummer Tim Oxford, keyboardist Anthony Carone, violinist Drew Jurecka, and drummer Loel Campbell (Wintersleep), among others. With vocal assists from luminaries Oh Susanna, Jim Guthrie, Carleigh Aikins (Paper Bird/Bahamas), Sarah MacDougall and Maïa Davies, this stellar new album will now dominate the balance of Kunder’s 2018 via tour dates across Canada, Europe, and beyond. We hope to see you out on the road to celebrate this new album and it's release into the world!

Mystery Lover

YT:https://youtu.be/_6tCO4L4dkg
IG: https://Instagram.com/mysteryloverband

Formed just one year ago, Victoria Indie Rock/Mystic Emo band Mystery Lover have already established themselves as a promising new act on the local music scene, playing 20+ shows at almost every live music venue in town, and on a BC tour this past summer. Their music calls on a diverse array of influences such as Death Cab for Cutie, Mount Eerie, Bon Iver, Japandroids and the Hotelier and is informed by sonic and poetic explorations of Eros/romance, archetypal symbolism and myth, our local urban and natural spaces and an oceanside view of churning emotional waters. They have recently finished recording their debut LP at Fat Dad studios, to be released sometime in early 2019.


Electric Blanket

Tue. October 2nd 2018  Scenic Route to Alaska, Peach Pyramid

Scenic Route to Alaska, Peach Pyramid @ Copper Owl Oct 2 2018 - Oct 20th @ Copper Owl
2000
tba at the door only.
SCENIC ROUTE TO ALASKA return to Victoria with their current album TOUGH LUCK.

SCENIC ROUTE TO ALASKA
https://www.scenicroutetoalaska.com/

Substance and accessibility. They’re often considered opposing forces when it comes to pop music, making it all the more impressive when a band like Scenic Route to Alaska so effortlessly delivers ample doses of both.
The easygoing Edmonton-based trio, comprised of Trevor Mann on lead vocals and guitar, drummer Shea Connor, and bassist Murray Wood, weaves catchy vocals and memorable melodies through rich arrangements – instantly engaging but begging to be heard again and again. It’s a coveted combination within the crowded sphere of indie rock – and one that’s rarely the product of anything but time, talent, and heaps of hard work. Of course, Scenic Route to Alaska are no strangers to any of those.
Recently, the band once again hit the studio with famed producer Howard Redekopp (Tegan & Sara, The New Pornographers) to cut the 10 tracks comprising their upcoming fourth LP, Tough Luck.

PEACH PYRAMID
https://peachpyramid.bandcamp.com/

Peach Pyramid is the brimming honesty and personal experience of one Jen Severtson. An internalized cry pulled to the surface; transformed and juxtaposed by way of graceful melodies and swirling guitars. Based in serene Victoria, British Columbia, the group explores the sounds of the pacific northwest while nodding at Jen’s upbringing in Calgary, Alberta. Repeating Myself, Peach Pyramid’s newest release, is a project recorded and produced with engineer Colin Stewart (Dan Mangan, Black Mountain, Yukon Blonde) and Kathryn Calder (The New Pornographers, Immaculate Machine) released Sept. 22nd on Calder’s newest label, Oscar St. Records. Repeating Myself explores themes of abuse and healing, glued together by Severtson’s ethereal vocals and pop hooks; Repeating Myself dives deep into the great beyond. Supported by a rotating collective of musicians/close friends, Peach Pyramid sonically exhales Jen’s intimate narrative.

Heavydive (CALGARY)

Based in Calgary, Alberta, Heavydive is a three-piece rock band that mixes post-punk rhythms and shoegaze soundscapes with dreary, yet angelic, vocals reminiscent of Ian Curtis, Morrissey, and Robert Smith. Inspired by the turmoils of mental illness, escaping emotional abuse, and the fear of failure, their work soars and crashes with sonic intensity that brims with melancholy, uncertainty and hope.

2100 - 2400
$10
WELCOME, our beloved LGTBQIA+ community and allies. Showcasing queens and things local to Victoria’s amazing drag scene, Extravalanka is an 80’s theme party involving exciting group and solo performances! Independently produced, funded, and organised by performers involved in the show.

ROSTER (performer bio coming soon!):
Bri Lanka : lankabri@insta
Henrietta Dubet : henriettadubet@insta
Ada Rawl : ada.rawl@insta
Boi Idol : boi_idol@insta
Equinox : kween.equinox@insta
Honey Dewme : honeydewme92@insta
Meow Mx : mx.kittyxo@insta

TICKETS: $10 presale via eventbrite (https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/80s-extravalanka-tickets-49188594410) to add your name to the door list, or $12 cash at the door! All ticket money collected is going to the independent artists and organisers which are making this show come to life, so please come and show some support!

TIME: To encourage and allow attendance among folks with a "regular" 9-5 weekday work schedule, we have scheduled the doors of the event to open at 9 pm, and we will be starting the show at 10 pm sharp, followed by drinks/socialising with the cast until midnight! The Copper Owl has a midnight curfew on Sunday's, so rest assured that you will be soundly sleeping in time for work Monday morning if that is what you need!

VENUE: We would like to thank the Copper Owl for providing a lovely and affordable space to host our event. We are devoted to creating a space revolving around diversity, consent, and respect for our all of our attendees by providing security, gender neutral bathrooms and encouraging suggestions which could make the space feel more inclusive and safe for our typically marginalised community.

ACCESSIBILITY: Wheelchair access is unfortunately minimal since there is a large set of stairs into the venue with no accompanying elevator. We recognise that accessibility to LGTBQIA+ events is important for the disabled members of our community, so we are actively pursuing affordable and accessible venues where we can host future events. Due to the premiums involved with booking well-known and accessible venues, we are opening our minds to the possibility of booking alternative accessible spaces which have never been explored previously by LGTBQIA+ event organisers. These options include warehouse space, unused retail locations, affordable community centres, private properties ie: barns, houses, etc.. As long as it is accessible, affordable, has access to electricity, and legal (we don’t necessarily need a liquor license) we are interested! YOUR suggestions and leads should be directed to missadarawl@gmail.com mentioning “Venue Opportunity” in the subject.

LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT: We, as a group, would like to acknowledge with respect the Lkwungen-speaking peoples on whose traditional territory Victoria/ the Copper Owl stands and the Songhees, Esquimalt and WSÁNEĆ peoples whose historical relationships with the land continue to this day. It is important to know where you stand, and respect the sacrifices which were made in order to call this land our home.

CONTACT: For any additional queries or information about the event, please email missadarawl@gmail.com or joshuamendis@gmail.com. You can also contact Josh Mendis (Bri Lanka) or Thomas Besenski (Ada Rawl) on Facebook.

Sat. September 15th 2018  RIFFLANDIA COPPER OWL 2018 SATURDAY! Lito Ford, Mr Moe b2b Thom Banks, HZ 528

RIFFLANDIA COPPER OWL 2018 SATURDAY!: Lito Ford, Mr Moe b2b Thom Banks, HZ 528 @ Copper Owl Sep 15 2018 - Oct 20th @ Copper Owl
2130 doors at 2100
Riff passes only
9:30 Lito Ford
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 gems of the late 70’s and early 80’s, her response is simple: “There’s disco, and there’s disco. I play disco”.

10:30 Mr. Moe B2B Thom Banks
Thom Banks has been a staple in the dance music community in the City of Gardens since the 90's. His blend of house music ranges from funky, to minimal, to tech, to deep, to straight-up classic house music. Thom has earned himself many residencies over the years and has been invited to play at the best festivals, parties and clubs on the West Coast, including Song & Surf, Festivus, Cosmic Campout, Diversity Festival, Tall Tree Music Festival, Freq Fest and of course, Soundwave, west coast Canada's fabled electronic music festival. Thom currently holds residencies in Victoria, BC at Frequency Saturdays (Chinatown Events) @ the Copper Owl and Too Much Love (Surge Events) @ Lucky Bar. His tight mixing, unparalleled track selection and keen ability in interpreting his crowd on the dance floor has allowed him to play alongside names such as Mathew Jonson, Dave Seaman, Mark Farina, Gene Farris, The Mole, Bassnectar and Eddie C, just to name a few. Often considered a DJ's favourite DJ, Thom tends to lay down beats that are deep and techy - his timing's right and his beats are tight.

12:30 528HZ
The 528HZ collective consists of two Vancouver Island based friends and musical kindred spirits. Crossing many musical traditions their eclectic sound is perhaps a result of their varied and cross cultural backgrounds. One hailing from Western Canada and the other from Eastern Europe, collectively the duos influences and skills are wide ranging. Pooling a vast musical knowledge from Jazz to African, to Acid, to House and of course Disco.

RIFFLANDIA COPPER OWL 2018 FRIDAY!: INKSTER, Lyssa, Slim Media Player, Braue @ Copper Owl Sep 14 2018 - Oct 20th @ Copper Owl
2130 doors at 2100
Riff passes only
9:30 Inkster
he aural version of squid ink on canvas, Inky provides a mosaic tapestry of electronic sounds. That said, this bio goes no further, since the best way to experience music, is not through reading descriptions, but through listening.

10:30 LYSSA
Having spent 11 years in Mexico, and being fortunate enough to be exposed to Latin culture, Lyssa has a strong desire to explore her roots in her musical selections. Lyssa's style could be described as sexy, smooth, organic, & classy, and depending on what what mood we catch her in, expect anything from rolling Chicago house, bouncy ethnic house, deep and lush, slamming tech house, soulful funk and disco, and even quirky leftfield...

Lyssa has had the privilege of performing at summer festivals such as Shambhala Music Festival, Victoria Electronic Music Festival, Entheos Gathering, Fozzyfest, and in 2014 made her US debut at the Northwest House Music Conference in Portland, Oregon. Since then she has been blessed to have been invited to play in Milwaukee, D.C., and Chicago at the legendary Smartbar.

In 2015 Lyssa took the leap into music production, and has had three releases since. She has been working steadily during 2018 on a new multi-track release coming out on a prominent label from California, featuring both her vocal and production work.

11:30 Slim Media Player

12:30 Braue
Braue (aka Lyndsy Brow) was born and raised in the rainforest basin of Vancouver, British Columbia. Misty, shrouded and often impenetrable, the region’s influence drenches Braue’s music and brings a deep, contemplative and rain kissed coastal feeling to every mix, production and event. With over 15 years at the controls, and as an integral part of the aptly named Subversive Music, Braue has hosted and played alongside such house and techno luminaries as The Black Madonna, Daniel Bell, DVS1, Efdemin, Joey Anderson, Prosumer, Steffi.. the list goes on. A classically trained pianist, natural musicality and attention to fine detail are hallmarks of Braue's sound. Whether recording as Coral Beech (Panel Records, Rhombus), performing as Braue or pushing things forward through events and record label (UBU) with brother and collaborator "Jesse Bru", Braue's impeccable taste, profound musical knowledge and attitude are always front and centre. Recent time spent in Berlin and beyond have pushed Braue to hone and sharpen a formidable arsenal of moody, tough and worldly sounds crafted for the discerning dance floor.

Thu. September 13th 2018  RIFFLANDIA COPPER OWL 2018 THURSDAY! DJ Frothbot, Psychic Pollution, Passenger, Fnkstll

RIFFLANDIA COPPER OWL 2018 THURSDAY!: DJ Frothbot, Psychic Pollution, Passenger, Fnkstll @ Copper Owl Sep 13 2018 - Oct 20th @ Copper Owl
2130 doors at 2100
Riff passes only
9:30 DJ Throthbot
Hailing from the land down under Frothbot is known for running various underground club events throughout Australia with the likes of Audible Communication. His strong grounding in electronic music is the staple of what you’d expect from this Melbourne lad along with quirky Afro beats and the deeper vibes of techno & house.

10:30 Psychic Pollution
Psychic Pollution is the long time solo project of Victoria BC producer J. Schuurman. What started out as a noise improv project back in 1998 and has since progressed to a full on cosmic psych/synth/kraut/kosmiche/EDM project influenced by such great artists as Pye Corner Audio, Brian Eno, Giorgio Moroder, Kraftwerk, etc. Ambient layers complementing synth solo sections with Berlin school discreet rhythms make up the Psychic sound. Psychic has a strict no computer regime for live sets and sequences hardware analogue synths and drum machines to fill out his sonic palette.

11:30 The Passenger
Combines Armando’s optimistic bass rumbling, Orbital’s playful chimes, Wendy Carlos binary fairy-telling and the sort of acid riffs that Plastikman would have come up with if he had been commissioned to update Maurice Sendak’s bibliography, in collaboration with Paper Rad. Everything that those gifted whippersnappers need to grow strong and mischievous!

12:30 FNKSTLL
For the past two years, Mafred Lotz and Jason Camp have taken their artistic drive and their shared love for electronic music, and formed the West Coast Canadian Techno duo known as FNKSTLL /fəNG/ /stil/ /aH/. The artist name originates from the German word, “Funkstille”, which translates into “Radio Silence”. Their productions are dark and minimal using classic sounds like the TR-707, TB-303 and a range of Detroit Techno chords and samples. Their inspiration and style is generated through the cold grey winters that overtake Canada for more than 6 months out of the year, and the vastness of the Pacific Ocean that lays at their doorstep. With a fresh sound, and tight productions, their music has been featured in underground clubs around the world. With their exuberant drive, and passion for Techno, it is a sure thing that their tracks are pushing the boundaries of your expectations.

Victoria's weekly intimate underground club night!

featuring;

Jesse Bru (Vancouver) Heart To Heart, PIFF Records
https://soundcloud.com/jesse-bru
Influenced by early 90s hip-hop’s use of samples, and his own experiences as an MC, DJ, sound designer and audio engineer, Bru’s sample-heavy music production mixes diverse sounds pulled from found internet videos into deep, mid-tempo house tracks. His sounds reference and pay homage to older traditions in music but come skillfully into their own as soulful tracks. He released his debut album, MidCity (Audio Parallax), in 2012, and has followed up since with a slew of 12”s over the the last few years. His DJ sets gravitate towards the Detroit/Chicago House/Techno side, always with room for disco and soul.

Andrew Allsgood (Shawinigan Lake)
https://soundcloud.com/andrew-allsgood
Lifelong music freak, Andrew Allsgood started spinning on the Toronto DJ scene back in late 90s and then transplanted to Vancouver Island in 2014. Always one to champion new, left of center sounds as well as looking back to the origins of dance music, Allsgood incorporates classics and new alike into his creative DJ sets. With releases on highly touted labels History Clock, Beard Science, Truffle Music and his own Free Association project, Allsgood’s international profile as a solid purveyor of underground sounds keeps growing.

Jen Li (Victoria)
https://soundcloud.com/jen-li-636879132
He are very happy to host Jen Li's debut Copper Owl performance. Keep an eye out for a bunch of talented up and comers at Frequency Saturday.

Thu. September 6th 2018  Blackwood Kings, Boomshack, chris jones

Blackwood Kings, Boomshack, chris jones @ Copper Owl Sep 6 2018 - Oct 20th @ Copper Owl
2000
$10 at the door only.
Blackwood Kings:

Now over five years into their lifespan, Blackwood Kings has proven to be one of the more unique bands to pop up in the Victoria BC scene. A dub-reggae crew at its core, the eclectic band also pulls from equal parts punk, prog, and jazz to make a left-field take on the genre that needs to be heard to be believed. Blackwood Kings' varied and malleable style has allowed them to share the stage with genre heavyweights such as Authority Zero, J-Boog, The Slackers, The Mad Caddies, The Skints, and Third World.

Boomshack:

Boomshack might be the hypest dance machine on the island. They play an infectious mix of jazz, funk, reggae, and Latin styles that is guaranteed to get feet stomping and bodies swaying. Their explosive live show and air-tight hooks have made them an island festival favourite, boasting appearances at the likes of Fernfest and the Victoria Ska and Reggae Fest.

Chris Jones:

As a member of local acts SweetLeaf and The Leg-Up Program, Chris Jones is no stranger to the Victoria scene. The Ontario transplant has made his presence known with catchy hook-laden songwriting and ripping guitar leads. He'll be performing a rare acoustic set. Maybe we'll even get a bluegrass song. We heard he loves bluegrass.

Tickets are $10 in advance.

ABOUT BEN KUNDER & "BETTER HUMAN" |
"Better Human" is Ben Kunder's dazzling new album and confident follow-up to his 2015’s internationally acclaimed album "Golden". This 9 song collection fearlessly explores themes like the birth of a child, the struggle for life balance and the workday reality propping up our outward facade to name a few. Teaming up with engineer/producer Aaron Goldstein at Baldwin Street Sound last fall, "Better Human" is host to several esteemed players - bassist Anna Ruddick (Randy Bachman, Bry Webb, Ben Caplan), Arkells drummer Tim Oxford, keyboardist Anthony Carone, violinist Drew Jurecka, and drummer Loel Campbell (Wintersleep), among others. With vocal assists from luminaries Oh Susanna, Jim Guthrie, Carleigh Aikins (Paper Bird/Bahamas), Sarah MacDougall and Maïa Davies, this stellar new album will now dominate the balance of Kunder’s 2018 via tour dates across Canada, Europe, and beyond. We hope to see you out on the road to celebrate this new album and it's release into the world!

Loving
loving1.bandcamp.com

Loving is a Victoria basement-based trio comprised of David Parry, and brothers Lucas and Jesse Henderson. The group came together several years ago as a result of their shared summers working in the capitalist ruins of British Columbia’s forests. Together they create a warm and dreamy sonic landscape kept adrift by existentially-oriented lyrics and an unspecified, encompassing sense of nostalgia. The group is presently adding the finishing touches to their first LP, slated for release in late 2018.

Ora Cogan http://www.oracogan.com

"Cogan can be strikingly sparse and overwhelmingly composed in the same sublime breath. She summons orchestral waves of violins and rolling psychedelic guitars, propelled forward by a voice that sweeps audiences away under a tsunami of blissful sonic complexity." - Sled Island Festival

Cogan’s new album 'Crickets' was recorded in Philadelphia with Tom Deis & released on Hand Drawn Dracula in November 2017. This complex & political record has married the intricate and atmospheric style this artist is known for with bold new arrangements that stretch out across many a sonic realm.

Iminah Kani http://www.iminahkani.com

Iminah Kani is a west-coast, island girl who creates beautiful music with elements of flamenco, folk-noir, psych and experimental sounds. Her guitar creates the foundation upon which she builds layers and plays soulfully.

(asthe) crow flies-We've been working in Victoria for about 8 years. The pocket started out solid and has only matured. As a rock band we've played most every stage in Victoria and neighbourhood. We have toured as far as Calgary, garnering high praise at every stop. Our membership is battle-hardened, playing in such luminary projects as Carolyne Mark and Her New Friends, Ball Gag n' Chain Gang, The Ghostbirds, and Compassion Gorilla. Our eponymous self-titled album received a very warm reception from the Victoria community and sells well at every show.

https://crowflies.bandcamp.com

Zulu Panda is folksy charm and raw passion, delivered with an outstanding live presence. Hailing from Vancouver BC, this indie-rock singer-songwriter performed in every province and territory to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Canada in 2017. His music combines heartland rock with grunge while maintaining a pop sensibility. His dynamic sound is matched nicely with warm melodies and Dylanesque storytelling. He is a troubadour of sound, stage and beard. He will be touring Canada from April to August of 2018.

WALLGRIN
wallgrin.com

Harsh screeches, angelic choirs, mangled noises and soaring strings — Wallgrin creates a contemporary soundtrack for ancient mythologies. The art-pop solo project of composer, vocalist and violinist Tegan Wahlgren, Wallgrin delves into the space between beauty and dissonance through layers of strings and exploratory vocals. Drawing from an array of musical influences — including fiddling and choral singing — Wallgrin melds fragments of myths to form the music of an indistinct and personal folklore.

Wallgrin’s self-produced recorded material incorporates eclectic instrumentation, field recordings and unconventional song structures, while their live performances consist mainly of virtuosic vocal and violin electronic manipulation — all of which is centred around Wallgrin’s powerful voice. Wallgrin has shared stages with Jenny Hval, Flock of Dimes, Nicole Lizée and Holy Hum, and has been a featured performer at Music on Main, Khatsahlano, ArtsWells, Tidal ~ Signal and TEDxVancouver. Wallgrin's debut album Bird/Alien will be released via Heavy Lark Records on July 6, 2018.

WONDERFUNC

Lyssa's style could be described as sexy, smooth, organic, & classy, and depending on what what mood we catch her in, expect anything from rolling Chicago house, bouncy ethnic house, deep and lush, slamming tech house, soulful funk and disco, and even quirky leftfield...

Victoria's weekly intimate underground club night.

Featuring;
DANE, Berlin/Edmonton (Common Edit)
https://www.residentadvisor.net/dj/dane
Now residing in Berlin, Dane hails from the icy Plaines of Canada’s North. Born and raised in the work hardy city of Edmonton, he grew up playing Shinny Hockey and driving a Zamboni in the local rinks. Naturally those cold nights on the ice led him directly to the warmth of the dance floor at the age of 15. From then on his life in Edmonton blossomed into being a part of a loving community, where he manned the local record shop and played his weekly residency at The Common for over half a lifetime. Now 32, Dane has relocated to Berlin with excitement for the oh so unpredictable, cosmic future ahead.

Over the years, a deep love and adoration for Western Canada grew. Spending time out in Vancouver and Victoria, falling in love with some of the finest people around. With timely meetings of Westcoast disco OG’s Koosh & Eddie C, coupled with the support of The Common, Dane had the gentle nudge needed to start his label Common Edit. Starting out as a simple excuse to press a record, throw a party and have a time, it soon became one of Canada’s foremost edit imprints, specializing in 7” & 12” cuts for the floor and bedroom.

Love, records and dancing have always been Dane’s passion. It shows in his sets with maniacal hair flips, expressive dancing and belting out lyrics to every hard dug record in his crates. Obsessive collecting and practice have made Dane one of Canada’s favourite 4x4 contributors. Carrying on the message of love, unity and lust for music, that you can feel every time you share the dance floor with him. Whatever the mood, he’ll take you higher and higher and let you leave happy and fulfilled.

Fallbrigade

Hailing from Victoria, Fallbrigade was created and founded by brother and sister duo Caleb Scott and Esther Jungclaus in the fall of 2012. Raised in Canada, South America and Scotland, the siblings’ sound echoes their adventurous and eclectic upbringing. In 2013 the talented two made top 20 in Music BC’s “Peak Performance Project.” They went on to release their first EP, “Greater North” in the fall of 2013, and followed that up with their self-titled debut album FALLBRIGADE in 2017.
Feeling incomplete the band began to change and grow, Fallbrigade was soon joined by multi-instrumentalist Matthew Jungclaus. Their music took on a new twist of raw sound with deep lyrical weight and soaring heartfelt vocals. Building on their earlier successes, the band has recently had many film placements and have been playing in festivals throughout Canada, including “Rifflandia” in the Royal Athletic Park.
In 2018 the band made it into the Top 10 of Canada's nationwide “CBC Searchlight” competition.

https://soundcloud.com/fallbrigade-1/sweet-hope

Maverick Cinema:

Within the crashing waves of the West coast, and the breeze that tosses through the pines is where Maverick Cinema finds their bliss. It is a fine line between the whispering summer wind, and the roaring winter rain that voice the aspects of their sound. The band has toured tirelessly in 2017, and 2018 in preparation of their debut full-length LP "First Light" set for a July 2018 release.

https://youtu.be/ZAxkRRNbwn8

Shepard:

Drawing influences from blues, folk, metal, and jazz, Shepard has established a name for themselves in Victoria with a unique modern rock sound. Their performances are unforgettable experiences, embodied by compelling lyrics, groovy bass lines, wicked drums, and guitar solos that will make you shed a tear. With blues driven progressions and euphoric vocals, the sound of Shepard will leave you breathless. Their upbeat debut single 'Passion' was recorded with Malcom Owen-Flood (Band of Rascals), and they are currently working on their first studio EP.

Hush Hush Noise, Ida Nilsen, David P. Smith @ Copper Owl Jul 5 2018 - Oct 20th @ Copper Owl
2000
$10 at the door only.
Hush Hush Noise: Hush Hush Noise is an experimental pop band from Victoria BC, who combine organic sounds with electronics to create memorable songs. “An ever changing creation of sound that wavers between the pit of your worst fears and the euphoria of love at its peak. Strange sounds and textures, sweet melodies, lush harmonies, shimmering guitars, big beats, chaos and beauty.” Lily Fawn has an unconventional songwriting style that’s like storytelling set to music. She sings both through her voice and her musical saw, a most serene and enchanting sound. She also emboldens Hush Hush Noise’s rhythmic assault with drums of all variety. Eric Hogg has been recording, playing guitar and writing songs since age 10. His experience making noise and electronic music has left an indelible impact on his approach to pop music.
https://www.hushhushnoise.com

Ida Nilsen: Victoria native Ida Nilsen is a Canadian pianist, singer and songwriter. She led the band “Great Aunt Ida” from 2002 until 2013, releasing three albums of original material. Influenced by classic songs from a variety of genres, her writing has been called intimate and honest, warm and spare, and bordering on misanthropic. She has been a collaborative member of the bands the Beans, the Violet Archers, the Buttless Chaps, Cunt, and has shared the stage with the Waterboys, the Weakerthans, the Rheostatics, Sarah Harmer, Veda Hille and others.

https://www.facebook.com/Great-Aunt-Ida-251002627162/

David P Smith: Victoria, BC songwriter David P. Smith has been writing, performing, and recording since 1995. He is essentially a storyteller, his narratives visceral, sometimes hilarious, peering into darkness, stumbling into surreality, lurching back into the everyday, and occupying that honest spot where good C&W dwells. Musically and sonically he draws on everything from the raw emotion of hard-core country and rhythm and blues, to noise, to folk, to the forms dictated or suggested or discovered on the accordion or piano.

Dizz N' Omen
DIzz n Omen met in 2004, bonding over a mutual love of hip hop. Early affiliations were a group of local MCs associated with Natural Talent Entertainment such as Ham-E, DZ Man(R.I.P.) and Trev-One. Hard hitting music, cyphering and discussions into the genre they love developed their early friendship.
In 2008, Omen appeared briefly on a large list of tracks via Haze Entertainment. It was this time working with Haze and Asylum Ave Studios that he would make his first recording efforts. During this period, Dizz was already working with a variety of local artists recording tracks of his own.
The two would then team up and begin recording. Their first project, Haf Kut, a group surrounding themes of partying, good natured lifestyle. Difficulty in Omen's personal life, caused a split until 2011. Reunited and rejuvenated, they hit the studio and started their promotional album "Fresh 'N Twisted" developing and defining their sound. A comedic/concious duo, with a raw edge, diverse and original, they maintain a "what you hear is what you get" policy with no falsehoods.
The release of the "Fresh 'N Twisted" mixtape they garnered a great deal of perspective on their talents. Both take pride in their craft and culture, and continue to grow. In 2014 they released their first full length album, "Filthy Measures, Guilty Pleasures," and are continuing to do shows and share their positive nature with their growing fan base. http://www.reverbnation.com/dizznomen http://www.facebook.com/dizznomen

----------------------
RICH NINES - Salt Spring Island
https://soundcloud.com/richnines

An anagram of his name, encompassing all permutations of his personal musical vocabulary. Rich Nines was born in 2010 when Eric Shinn moved from Toronto to B.C. and adopted a “genre-as-instrument” approach to open-format DJing, a break from his previous 15 years of switching aliases associated with specific bpm (Hypercolour for jungle/dnb, Invisibling for dubstep, etc…). This incarnation also coincides with “going digital”, allowing for a fuller spectrum of selections than when lugging around crates of vinyl. Rich Nines mixes with the body of a dancer and mind of a musicologist, fearlessly transitioning on mood rather than tempo, or delighting in the discipline of sticking to a strict curatorial vision. Equally at home having a half-hour of autonomic dnb erupt after an hour of minimal techno, or tunneling through hours of only steppy amen rollers from ‘97-‘98. He still keeps a few crates of classics handy for special occasions, highlights being at throwback jams like Lighta!’s Bloodsound and Automatic’s Origins events. Frequently found at farm festivities on and around Salt Spring Island, as a regular guest in Toronto with 40Hz / Architextures, and monthly at Red Room (Vancouver) and VEC (Victoria) as resident DJ for the past 3 years at the Art Battle live painting parties. Fave Labels: Ninja Tune, Warp, Metalheadz, Moving Shadow, Suburban Base, Hyperdub, Planet Mu, Cosmic Bridge, Strictly Rhythm, and Motown.

----------------------
DEERFACE - Vancouver
https://soundcloud.com/deerface

Deerface got her start in Victoria in 2010 on a pair of turntables. She lets her mixing speak for itself, with smooth layering of tracks and attention to atmosphere. While Deerface is inspired by many genres, producers, and DJs, this gentle doe prefers the dark and sexy side of minimal, elegant, and rolling bass-driven drum and bass and works to create sets that build and flow. Happy to be playing for any crowd, her sets will invite you in to a playful and mischievous landscape and get your energy moving.

tba at the door only.
Victoria's weekly intimate underground club night.

Featuring;

SONNS (Kompakt Records, ESP Institute) * Los Angeles
Alexandre Mouracade's roots in the Los Angeles music scene span the better part of two decades not only as a musician and DJ, but also as the founder of the globally hyped party, "Making Shapes" and more recently as a charting producer under the moniker, Sonns and Split Secs with Travis Kirschbaum. Mouracade's roots reach as far back as the Southern California punk scene that gave rise to an equally as rich underground club world in the 90s. He studied jazz improvisation and music theory in college, at which time he bought his first samplers and sequencers. In the process, Alexandre got a severe addiction to buying records and finding old synths to record and learn from.
Mouracade's music and DJ sets reflect his passion for digging deep and not sticking to a specific genre - but by finding those tracks that have a timelessness to fit any moment on the dance floor.
. . .
Andrew Allsgood, Resident DJ * Vancouver Island
Updated bio coming soon..
. . .
DJ Frothbot * Melbourne, Australia
Hailing from the land down under Frothbot is known for running various underground club events throughout Australia with the likes of audible communication and cub lock events.
His strong grounding in electronic music is the staple of what you’d expect from this Melbourne lad along with quirky Afro beats and the deeper vibes of techno & house.

POSTDATA Live at Copper Owl

Tickets - $15 advance / $15 at the door

The frontman of beloved Nova Scotia alternative outfit Wintersleep, Murphy has built a circle of collaborators, friends, and family around him for more than a decade. Murphy first released music with Postdata in 2010, a self-titled debut that saw him working with his brother Michael to record a set of songs that dealt with family, legacy, and connection. Now, Postdata returns with Let’s Be Wilderness, a record characterized by those two old bickering friends: love and death.

The 10-track record came together much the same as Murphy’s other projects: through a community of friends and family. A vacation in Europe found Murphy ringing up friends and former tourmates Grant Hutchison and Andy Monaghan (both of Scottish indie rock triumph Frightened Rabbit). It was these meetings with old pals that birthed Let’s Be Wilderness. The cast was rounded out by Murphy’s Wintersleep bandmates Loel Campbell and Tim D’Eon, with additional work from Simone Pace (Blonde Redhead) and production from acclaimed Scottish producer Tony Doogan. http://www.postdatamusic.com

MARLEE
djmarlee.com / Marlee Presents

DJ Marlee first stepped to the decks at age 19 and enjoyed a meteoric rise within Canada’s West Coast scene, particularly hometown Victoria BC where she was known for creating romping dance floors through dirty rhythms and big bass. She packed clubs, stood beside legends, and carved herself a loyal following but 15+ years later Marlee is rediscovering her first love and focusing on the music before the scene.

“I haven’t retired,” Marlee says. “But I used to be so full-on and just live and breathe it all the time. Now music is more of a garnish on my life, instead of the full meal deal.”

The step back has allowed her to focus on producing tracks and by only playing when and where she feels excited Marlee is bringing a passion back to her live shows that she believes may have been left on the roadside in the days of rushing from clubs to rave to radio to residency.

“I realized I have all these tracks I started putting together but haven’t finished,” she says. “And I’ve bought and sold and re-bought and re-sold my gear so many times now it’s a bit of a mish-mash, but when I step up to the decks these days the energy feels new.”

That fresh energy is evident in new tracks and also in a new focus to pass her knowledge onto a new generation. Marlee’s beats still slam, her build-ups still melt faces but there is a confidence behind it all that comes with doing things on her own terms.

“It’s fun again,” Marlee says, “and that reminds me of those early days when I first fell in love with electronic music. Except now I realize I don’t need to be here every minute of my life– it’s an incredibly freeing feeling and isn’t that really what this music is supposed to be about? Freedom?”

When catching a live DJ set, Jon’s well known for his high energy, precision mixing, and ability to change up the vibe in the room on a dime. No dance floor is safe when it’s his turn to take the stage.

WE THE FEW - BIO:
Based out of Victoria, B.C, We The Few is an alternative rock band that puts both blues-y lead work and a tight rhythm section in the spotlight.
Established in 2017, We The Few is an up and coming act that you will not want to miss!
http://www.wethefew.ca/

REDWHYN - BIO:
Redwhyn is an up-and-coming three-piece alternative rock band from Northern BC. Founded by brothers Josh and Michael Hanson, and later joined by drummer David Morgan, the band has been playing shows around BC since the summer of 2016. They released their debut, self-titled album in November of 2017 on all major streaming platforms.
Redwhyn’s music is a refreshing take on alternative rock, with traces of modern blues-rock and echoes of late progressive rock. You can expect to hear a range of influences including Biffy Clyro, Goo Goo Dolls, and Coldplay. Redwhyn’s show boasts intricate riffs, haunting melodies, and soaring solos full of energy and crowd appeal. Original songs that have been borne out of both the bitter cold of British Columbia’s Central Interior and the endless rainfall of its Lower Mainland will grip concert goers and album listeners alike.

$10 at the door only.
The Carbons are on TOUR!!

With their debut full length album behind them, The Carbons are quickly booking stages around western Canada to perform live for the 10K ears that have heard they're plays on Spotify, Google Play, Apple Music, itunes and much more.
The Carbons released their full length album on May 12th at the Fox Cabaret in Vancouver and are now headed on their western Canadian tour May 25th! They have secured dates with notable Canadian touring acts The Wild, Open Air, and Aviator Shades and will be tearing up the stages of BC and Alberta for a month!

The Carbons are a groove rock band that performs their catchy tunes with passion and purpose. It’s all about the music, and it’s all about the rock show. The spectacle on stage features Natte standing—and often jumping up and down—on his throne while pounding the drums; Tomy using all four limbs in parallel to conjure as much sound out his guitar and voice as possible; and Trevor slapping his bass and complimenting Tomy's rich tenor voice with smooth soothing harmonies! This trio has the crowd entertained and on their feet all night long! They are a memorable act, and after the laughs, shakes and cheers fans leave smiling and humming their tunes. The Carbons give everything to their act. And when they get on stage, the crowd gives it all back.

Upon their return, The Carbons will be recording a new music video at home in BC this summer and they are headed back on a Canada-wide tour in the Fall!

Thank you for all the support. See you from the stage LIVE! http://www.thecarbons.ca

SINISTARR - Exit | Hospital | Creative Source | Metalheadz - Detroit
https://soundcloud.com/sinistarr
https://www.facebook.com/Sinistarr.music/

Starting out as a strictly Drum & Bass producer in Detroit, Jeremy Howard aka Sinistarr has gained a healthy catalog of releases and remixes on prestigious drum & bass labels such as Metalheadz, Hospital Records, Project 51, Renegade Hardware, and many others, but has grown into new tempos and styles across the electronic music genre.

Jeremy Howard, aka Sinistarr, is truly one of the most interesting and exciting names to hit the underground dance music world this past decade. He has become known as an innovative and consistent producer and a skilled and adventurous DJ, and his sound is an authentic extension of his soul and the pure talent that Jeremy possesses, deftly exploring the soul of yesteryear with a modern context. This sound represents his life living in and around his hometown of Detroit, MI and his collective travels around the world. His creativity defies genres, and sees him infuse his unique sound into a broad range of tempos and vibes. He is equally at home writing emotive headphone music, or in-your-face dance-floor cuts.

Jeremy began his movement deeply rooted in the world of Drum & Bass, having releases on legendary labels like Metalheadz Platinum, Renegade Hardware and Creative Source. He continued over the years to evolve his sound as his own prowess as a producer grew, eventually branching out into many different tempos, still maintaining his unique sound exploring the realms of Footwork, Jungle and Techno. Recently he has seen releases on labels like Tectonic, Hospital, Loose Squares and most notably, the 70th release on dBridge’s iconic imprint Exit Records. He has shared the stage with and been supported musically by some of the biggest names in the game like Machinedrum, Fabio, Ivy Lab, Om Unit, Sam Binga, Rockwell & Dabrye to name but a handful. His sounds have been heard all over Rinse FM, NTS, FM Xtra and BBC Radio 1 & 1Xtra and he turned in a DNB60 mix for Friction’s quintessential Drum & Bass show.

With all of this momentum, Sinistarr has been increasingly touring and hitting major clubs and festivals like SXSW, Secret Solstice, Tresor, Shambhala Music Festival, Bass Coast, and many others across North America and Europe. There is seemingly no obstacle too high for him, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to watch his amazing journey.

Merzbow & Balázs Pándi with Annunaki
----
Merzbow
For over thirty years, Merzbow (aka Masami Akita) has been the biggest and most recognizable figure on the international noise scene. Since 1980, he has released over 400 recordings, and has collaborated with various artists. There is no need to argue: Merzbow stands as the most important artist in noise music. The favorite moniker of Japan's Masami Akita appears on hundreds of albums. The name comes from German artist Kurt Schwitters Kurt Schwitters famous work Merzbau, which he also called The Cathedral of Erotic Misery. Akita's choice reflects his fondness for junk art (through Schwitter's collage method) and his fascination with ritualized eroticism, namely in the form of fetishism and bondage. All these elements constitute the Merzbow persona.
----
Balázs Pándi
Balázs Pándi is a Hungarian-born improvisational and avant-garde, grindcore drummer, composer who has worked extensively with electronic and industrial musicians as well as jazzmen. Pándi's early outfits were the Venetian Snares,To Live and Shave in LA, Zu and the iconoclastic Killimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble. He has worked extensively with industrial pioneer Merzbow on the road; the pair have recorded a number of albums together, including dates with saxophonist Mats Gustafsson. They headlined the experimental stage at the Scion Rock Fest in Tampa, Florida in 2012.They released Cuts in 2013 on RareNoise. For the follow-up Cuts of Guilt, Cuts Deeper, they were joined by Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth.

The Universal Law states that everything in the Universe moves and vibrates - everything is vibrating at one speed or another. Everything you see around you is vibrating at one frequency or another. Your frequency is different from other things in the universe. BUT you are not separated, you are in fact living in an ocean of energy. We all are.

Anunnaki is Arlen Thompson (Wolf Parade) - drums/percussion/modular synthesizer & Dave Read (Moths & Locusts) bass/guitar/synthesizer.

Kayla Briët is a 21 year old multi-instrumentalist, composer, songwriter, filmmaker and virtual reality artist exploring themes of identity in multiple mediums of storytelling. After teaching herself how to create music in her room at a young age, she took up multiple instruments, scores her own films, and draws from elements of electronic, a-cappella, folk, and alternative pop; singing textured tales of love, loss, and all that's in-between. She's now bringing her “room” onto the live stage as a one-woman band, with a loop pedal, keyboard, guitar & guzheng zither, a traditional Chinese instrument. Her Prairie Band Potawatomi/Neshnabe, Chinese, and Dutch-Indonesian roots deeply inspire her in both music, VR, and film. Her award-winning short documentary, Smoke That Travels, immerses viewers in her native Prairie Band Potawatomi heritage and explores fears that her culture may someday be forgotten. This film has screened and won awards at over 45 festivals internationally, including Sundance, MoMA NYC; and is archived in the Smithsonian Institute in Washington DC. Currently, she is creating a room-scale VR collective diary (TROVE), teaching all-ages workshops, scoring independent films, and directing experimental stories in 2D & VR.

The See Monsters are Dean Hunt (DJ/Production) & Bracken Hanuse Corlett (Live-Visuals). They have been performing across Turtle Island since 2011, initially as members of Skookum Sound System and now as their current audio-visual duo. Both artists retain sonic and visual connection to their Indigenous lineage and bring forth a fused performance of Northwest Coast bass and moving light and images. They are known to transform the spaces they work in - moving fluidly from art gallery, to community space, to dance floor.

Dean has been DJing and producing music for 15+ years. He digs into the realms of bass music with a heavy Northwest Coast influence. He also practices full-time as a contemporary artist working within the Heiltsuk traditions of painting and carving. Bracken comes from the Wuikinuxv and Klahoose Nations and works in a variety of media including digital design, painting and sculpture. He has recently been creating stories and drawings for 2D and 3D animation.

Speak Easy play Copper Owl in Victoria, BC with friends Still Fools and Saint Wellesley, as they kick off their West Coast tour in support of their new EP '(There's No Place Like) 1330'

$10 at the door

Speak Easy is a psychedelic pop driven trio originating from the interior of British Columbia. The band the was formed during the winter months of 2016. After an ongoing, jam inspired collaboration of drummer Scott Sparrow and guitarist Oliver Sandberg during their university years in BC, bassist Lauren Giorgio was introduced to the project, and Speak Easy was conceived.

The group combines moody psychedelic rock with an eclectic sound, which has been compared to John Lennon - if he’d never met Yoko Ono. With their love-hate inspired lyrics and dad-pop chord progressions, the band has accumulated a steady fan-base within the Okanagan, playing multiple packed-house shows - including an overflowing debut show at music hub Milkcrate Records in Kelowna.

Speak Easy are setting off on their first ever tour May 2018, heading out along the West Coast of BC in support of their first full-length EP '(There's No Place Like) 1330'.

Kitty + The Rooster (Vancouver) http://www.kittyandtherooster.com
----Kitty & The Rooster is a rock n' roll duo from Vancouver, BC featuring Jodie Ponto banging on the cocktail kit and East Van guitar wizard Noah Walker. They are known for their surf-tastic hooks, clever lyrics, and ridiculously fun shows.
OFFICIAL BIO:
https://youtu.be/QX68tkjUFyk

Soda Pony (Whitehorse) http://www.sodyponymusic.com
With one full-length album already tucked into their waistline and another currently being cooked up in the kitchens/studio of Old Crow Recording, Soda Pony truly kills during their live performances. Hamilton, playing bass synthesizer with his left hand while also hammering at his drum kit, keeps the course steady for Tentrees' hooks and leads, alternating between organ and crunchy electric guitar. Meanwhile, the duo trade off vocals (frequently even in the course of the same song), adding to their charismatic, playful dynamic. The songs are clever, musically sophisticated, tightly arranged, and most of all, performed with original, forceful spirit.

T-rav The Transformer and The Decepticons w/ JimaJam

A new project by T-rav The Transformer (of The Party on High Street) focusing on material that spans a 7 year period of solo musical production. Studio beats and hip-hop flows have been reworked and adapted for a live band performance. Joining T-rav will be long time collaborator and prolific m.c. JimaJam. Backing them on stage will be The Decepticons, a band of brothers, featuring members from The Leg-Up Program and Spaceport Union. A set of music, unheard and unseen, raw and transformed.

WoodStockhausen is an annual event happening in Victoria, Canadian West Coast, which presents experimental/avant-garde music played by a rock band setting in a night club environment.

Mixing the concepts of music from the Woodstock festival, and of Karlheinz Stockhausen's aesthetic ideas, WoodStockhausen 2018 brings music by the United States' groundbreaking composer John Cage, Canadian/Italian composer Giorgio Magnanensi, local composers on the West Coast of Canada and abroad!

This event will be hosted by the wonderful Copper Owl, in Victoria B.C. Cover charge will be of $ 15.00 at the door, $ 10.00 in advance, and this is a 19+ event (not for minors).

APRIL 21: African Boogie with Eddie C, Hristo & Inky
APRIL 28: Eddie C (live PA) *first live show* with CtE resident DJs

Raised in Southern Ontario somewhere between Detroit and Montreal, Eddie C began his experiments in music some time in the late 80s. Inspired first by Hip Hop and the burgeoning Acid House scene, he began making tape edits of late night radio and shortly thereafter began visiting record shops and warehouse parties to discover the music first hand. Record collecting has since been a way of life for the man, followed closely by an opposing passion for skiing which lead him to his 10 year sabbatical in the Rocky Mountains of Canada. With plenty of time over the past decade for reflection and research in his log cabin studio, C has recently re-located and reconnected with the electronic music community in Berlin. His raw yet sophisticated approach to production has yielded countless releases and remixes since just 2009 and his now renowned eclectic and passion-fueled DJ sets have garnered a cult following world wide. We are very happy to have him join us for a month residency during April.

ERAS ~ L.A.
Skirting the fringes of many celebrated music scenes in Los Angeles, electronic composer Nathaniel Eras links Eastern rhythmic and tonal ideas with dark dizzying beats, and an impeccable indie sensibility. These bottom-heavy modern club structures are balanced melodically and manifest in contrast to Eras' affection for exploring off-the-grid tones and droning soundscapes. The resulting mixture is an intoxicating work of unique electronic pop culled from synergic experiments that give voice to Eras' shadowy productions. Interested in exploring the ambiguous sounds between notes and non-traditional scales, This exotic melodic approach meshes well with the Southeast Asian percussive elements that are woven into Eras' expansive palette - inferring IDM mutations of UK Bass, Footwork, Garage, House, and Techno.

LIEF HALL ~
Lief Hall is an interdisciplinary artist and musician living in Vancouver, BC. Her solo music project while living in Berlin in
2014, emerging out of her practice as an audio-visual performance artist, experimental vocalist, and electronic music producer. Hall’s practice as an interdisciplinary artist incorporates sound, installation, video, multimedia
performance and choreography. Her interdisciplinary installation and performance works explore themes of nature, technology and the body as they relate to mythology, mysticism and
the posthuman voice.

ANTHONY SHACKELL

Hailing from Vancouver, Canada, Anthony Shackell is now a Victoria-based musician. A multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and performer, he can be often be found playing trumpet with MYLA and Phonosonics, in a practice room, or writing his next work. He draws on influences from artists and groups such as Donovan Woods, Hiatus Kaiyote, Greg Holden, Lawrence, and Busty and the Bass, and is always looking to add a new twist to the music that he writes.

Anthony will be joined by the following personnel:
- Amy-Lynne Toth on Violin
- Chris Calvin on Upright/Electric bass
- Myim Bakan Kline on Drum Kit

Anthony is rearranging most of his music for a 4 piece group, so even if you've heard it before, you haven't heard it like this.

NICK MINTENKO

Nick Mintenko has toured Canada, Europe, and the United States with some of Canada’s finest Folk and Jazz acts (The Marc Atkinson Trio, The Bills, West My Friend). In 2017 Nick debuted with positive reviews as a solo artist with his record “What I Thought I Knew”. His second, yet untitled release is scheduled for spring 2018. The new record features powerful vocal performances, and a unique songwriting palate that draws from all of Nick’s influences including Dave Mathews, Owen Pallet, Jeff Buckley, Duke Ellington, Carlos Jobim, Radiohead, and many more.

Nick's influences are married in his compositions. A love of lyricism for songs that can bring people together by speaking to the heart is met by a love of Jazz for expressive exploration and blistering improvisations and fused together by an imaginative composition style that, at times, abandons traditional song form and focuses instead on a stream of consciousness style of bridging ideas and themes.

Nick will be joined by Eryn Sharpe on vocals.

KUBLA KALM

The new solo project of Kiaran McMillan (from Victoria's own Electric Sex Panther), Kubla Kalm comes to you to create a lush, smooth & funky atmosphere for you to enjoy and engage with. Kick back and relax to the sounds of the city, rare funk grooves and smooth neo-soul!

Raised in Southern Ontario somewhere between Detroit and Montreal, Eddie C began his experiments in music some time in the late 80s. Inspired first by Hip Hop and the burgeoning Acid House scene, he began making tape edits of late night radio and shortly thereafter began visiting record shops and warehouse parties to discover the music first hand. Record collecting has since been a way of life for the man, followed closely by an opposing passion for skiing which lead him to his 10 year sabbatical in the Rocky Mountains of Canada. With plenty of time over the past decade for reflection and research in his log cabin studio, C has recently re-located and reconnected with the electronic music community in Berlin. His raw yet sophisticated approach to production has yielded countless releases and remixes since just 2009 and his now renowned eclectic and passion-fueled DJ sets have garnered a cult following world wide. We are very happy to have him join us for a month residency during April.

**EARLY SHOW - DOORS @ 6PM**

Sorry Edith and local Victoria bands Bloody Whilma and Fall Fair Car, are playing an early show at the vintage Copper Owl!

Sorry Edith - The post-punk revival triad, Sorry Edith, began in a dusty old artist studio above a heavy metal jam space in East Vancouver. Pulling influences from grunge to synth pop - Aubrey, Deona, and Kaylee, fall nothing short of deftly produced minerals and stones.
http://www.sorryedith.com/
https://www.facebook.com/sorryedith/

Bloody Wilma - https://www.facebook.com/pg/bloodywilma/about/?ref=page_internal

Fall Fair Car - For the past 7 years, Fall Fair Car have been bringing their brand of garage rock with a hint of alt country to Victoria's eclectic indie music scene. Led by brothers Jes & Evan Matthiesen, who keep themselves distracted by their other projects (The Plodes, The This, Moonbat, Chinatown Sessions), and joined with bassist Ben Arscott, their latest EP "Port Machine Works", named after their now defunct family business, features songs about growing up in Port Alberni and the changes of city life.

Doors: 6pm

"Aleshia St Cyr is a Canadian artist, born and raised on PEI and currently resides in Vancouver. Incredibly excited to support an amazing band like Sorry Edith, not only are they inspiring but also go hand in hand with what influences her paintings; strong females, folklores and story telling, and all things taboo.

TEXTURE & LIGHT (Powell River)
- Indie Dance / Electronica (Live) -
http://textureandlight.ca/

Trevor allows his music to lead him where it may, not putting much thought into staying inside a certain genre or following a certain formula. This is simply the music that Trevor was born to make, and it continues to evolve over space and time as he is carved by experience, joy, sadness, and wonder. His live shows are built around the idea of bringing listeners on a fuzzy, deep, slow motion journey that takes place on a dance floor beneath the stars, but leads you deep within yourself. Trevor just released his new EP, 'Eat Magic', you can hear that here: https://textureandlight.bandcamp.com/


Soft Circuit have been creating ambient electronic music in Victoria BC for the last year. Their first EP “Regions” was recorded in the later half of 2017 in their home studio. It was recorded from re-interpreted improvised material and shaped into more rigid structures. Daniel and Alexander's performance combines live and sequenced electronic instruments with elements of improvisation to keep the sound evolving.


Zephyr Nova makes electronic music of all varieties, from ambient to breakcore.
You can hear some of his ambient music here: https://zephyrnova.bandcamp.com/releases
Some of his crunchier beats here: https://www.beatport.com/release/shatterscapes/341861

Hello Moth interweaves electronics with organics to make poetic electro-pop that is sometimes dark, sometimes uplifting, and always deeply affecting. His voice--forceful yet ethereal--merges with synthesizers to create otherworldly songs and powerful performances.

ELIZABETE BALČUS (Latvia)
Elizabete Balčus is a Latvian musician and performance artist who creates neo-psychedelic dream pop from surprising, collaged genre juxtapositions, simultaneously melodic and experimental.

Mon. March 26th 2018  The Rabbit Hole Presents: Sam Shelstad , Cait Flanders, W/ Guests

The Rabbit Hole Presents:: Sam Shelstad , Cait Flanders, W/ Guests @ Copper Owl Mar 26 2018 - Oct 20th @ Copper Owl
1830
$5 at the door only.
The Rabbit Hole is BACK!!!! We're trying something new, but don't worry, we're still bringing you the most amazing artists we can find.

We are pleased to announce the Victoria launch of UVic writing graduate SAM SHELSTAD'S debut book of short stories 'COP HOUSE'; CAIT FLANDERS will be reading and hosting a Q&A for her new book 'THE YEAR OF LESS'; and K'ari Fisher and Susan Sanford Blades will be taking the floor as special guests!

As usual The Copper Owl doors will open at 6:30 with the event starting at 7. A small door fee of $5 will get you past the doorman (it will go to covering the venue fee and all remaining will be divided between the performers). There will be beers and books available for sale. This event is 19+.

SAM SHELSTAD is a writer from London, Ontario. His stories have appeared in The New Quarterly, The Fiddlehead, and McSweeney’s Internet Tendency, among others. He was longlisted for the 2014 CBC Short Story Prize. Of his debut collection Cop House (Nightwood Editions, 2017), Quill and Quire said, “reads like something out of George Saunders. It is precisely this blend of humour and pathos that give Shelstad’s stories their disarming power.” Sam lives in Toronto.
COP HOUSE is a collection of stories about when we desperately try to recapture—or replace—the things we’ve lost. There are secret vacations, library book fetishes, an unusual exchange for protection from teenage vandals, and a doomsday cult operating out of an aquatic centre. An exiled polar bear spies on his old community and fights to survive in unfamiliar territory. A man campaigns to keep the sitcom Friends on the air after the collapse of his family. A masochistic deer wants to feel something other than the slow digestion of cud.

CAIT FLANDERS is a former binge consumer turned mindful consumer of everything. Through personal stories, she writes about what happens when money, minimalism, and mindfulness cross paths. Cait's story has been shared on Oprah.com, Forbes, Yahoo!, The Guardian, The Globe and Mail, CBC News, and more. She inspires people to consume less and live more. Cait lives in Squamish, BC, Canada, with her three loves: the mountains, the forest, and the ocean.
THE YEAR OF LESS is a self-help memoir that documents Cait's life for the first twelve months of her two-year shopping ban. At every stage, she learned that the less she consumed, the more fulfilled she felt. But the challenge became a lifeline when, in the course of the year, she found herself in situations that turned her life upside down. It was then that she realized why she had always turned to shopping, alcohol, and food—and what it had cost her. Unable to reach for her usual vices, she changed habits she had spent years perfecting and discovered what truly mattered to her. Blending her story with insight and practical guidance, The Year of Less will leave you questioning what you’re holding on to in your own life—and, quite possibly, lead you to your own path of less.

SPECIAL GUESTS:

K'ARI FISHER's fiction was long-listed for the 2015 Journey Prize and won The Malahat Review's Jack Hodgins Founders' Award for fiction. Her work has appeared in the Malahat Review and Prairie Fire Magazine. Last year she completed her Master's degree in writing at UVic and she is currently working on a novel and sometimes writes short fiction when she needs a reprieve from it.

SUSAN SANFORD BLADES In May 2016, Susan Sanford Blades completed an MFA in fiction at the University of Victoria under Lorna Jackson’s inimitable guidance. Her short stories have recently been published in The Puritan, Numero Cinq, Grain, The New Quarterly, and Prairie Fire and have been anthologized in Coming Attractions 16. Her first novel is currently in the market for a publisher.

We're so happy to be back in our new book launch form! We have some more exciting events coming your way later this year.

See you all on the 26th! Tell your friends, bring your friends, bring your fam.... hell, bring a stranger you meet on the bus. This is going to be good.

Mint Records Presents:

Kellarissa - Ocean Electro Record Release Show Part 2!
https://kellarissa.bandcamp.com/album/ocean-electro-2

Larissa Loyva first became entangled with Mint Records in 2005 with p:ano, her project with Nicholas Krgovich. Since then, Loyva has had her hand in a boatload of projects including Fake Tears and The Choir Practice, and has served as a touring member of Destroyer and How To Dress Well. Loyva has also released two solo albums on Mint under the name Kellarissa, which is Finnish for “in the basement”. Now, Kellarissa returns with Ocean Electro, (momentarily eschewing the Finnish language) to propose a new genre which entangles femme psych electronica with driving synth pop. The album is dedicated to the planet’s mysterious forces, namely the ocean, in all its metaphorical and natural powers. Kellarissa is celebrating the release in Victoria with an incredibly talented line up of the West Coast's best experimental pop artists including:

Mike Edel w/ Scenic Route To Alaska
Tuesday, March 20th
Copper Owl 1900 Douglas St. 19+

TICKETS: mesrta.brownpapertickets.com

Mike Edel - http://www.mikeedel.com
Edel has entrusted his finest work yet to producer Chris Walla (Death Cab For Cutie) as Walla travlled from his home in Norway after he heard the demos Edel was working on for more than 12 months. The two, along with a tight supporting cast have made lots of music to be excited about.

On the heels of 150 shows supporting Edel’s last release India, Seattle, and shows with Serena Ryder, Foy Vance and Said The Whale, Edel has written and demoed tirelessly while taking time off the road. This time as seen him get married as well as split his time between British Columbia and Seattle, where his wife calls home. 2018 has lots in store and this is just the beginning.


Scenic Route to Alaska - http://www.scenicroutetoalaska.com
Substance and accessibility. They’re often considered opposing forces when it comes to pop music, making it all the more impressive when a band like Scenic Route to Alaska so effortlessly delivers ample doses of both.

The easygoing Edmonton-based trio, comprised of Trevor Mann on lead vocals and guitar, drummer Shea Connor, and bassist Murray Wood, weaves catchy vocals and memorable melodies through rich arrangements – instantly engaging but begging to be heard again and again. It’s a coveted combination within the crowded sphere of indie rock – and one that’s rarely the product of anything but time, talent, and heaps of hard work. Of course, Scenic Route to Alaska are no strangers to any of those.

Recently, the band once again hit the studio with famed producer Howard Redekopp (Tegan & Sara, The New Pornographers) to cut the 10 tracks comprising their upcoming fourth LP, Tough Luck.

$8 at the door only.
A great night of music in Victoria!

Listen to Hearing Trees' first single "Telling Peter," out now!

Hearing Trees is supporting the release of their long-anticipated full length album, "Quiet Dreams." The group’s lush, layered brand of ambient and anxious rock is built atop a foundation inspired by R.E.M., Matthew Good, and The Tragically Hip and tinged with the more modern and atmospheric musings of Wintersleep and The National. Coupled with sometimes cryptic, always captivating poetry, Hearing Trees offers a masterclass in sweet-sounding catharsis.

Non Stop Talk

Consisting of members Chris Banks (from Port Alberni), Collin Massie, Aaron Thurlborn-Hansen and Matt X (from Campbell River), this YYJ-dwelling band creates original music with roots in rock, funk and a sprinkle of jazz.

"Space disco is the fusion of disco music with futuristic themes, sounds and visuals, a genre that became popular in the late 1970s. The main idea behind the genre is that of an exploration of the wonders of outer space by humans, and many bands often included robotic shapes, laser illumination and computer screen sequences in their live performances. The artists themselves often dressed in a manner inspired by glam rock and somewhat futuristic fashion."

Expect the best in killer space disco from the past to the present.

Peach Pyramid
https://peachpyramid.bandcamp.com/

Peach Pyramid is the brimming honesty and personal experience of one Jen Severtson. An internalized cry pulled to the surface; transformed and juxtaposed by way of graceful melodies and swirling guitars. Based in serene Victoria, British Columbia, the group explores the sounds of the pacific northwest while nodding at Jen’s upbringing in Calgary, Alberta. Repeating Myself, Peach Pyramid’s newest release, is a project recorded and produced with engineer Colin Stewart (Dan Mangan, Black Mountain, Yukon Blonde) and Kathryn Calder (The New Pornographers, Immaculate Machine) released Sept. 22nd on Calder’s newest label, Oscar St. Records. Repeating Myself explores themes of abuse and healing, glued together by Severtson’s ethereal vocals and pop hooks; Repeating Myself dives deep into the great beyond. Supported by a rotating collective of musicians/close friends, Peach Pyramid sonically exhales Jen’s intimate narrative.

Wired To The Sky
https://wiredtothesky.bandcamp.com/

Wired To The Sky is the always evolving solo project of Canadian songwriter, Dylan Perkons. After relocating from Montreal to the West Coast he began performing new material, frequently collaborating with a rotating cast of Vancouver Island musicians. In late 2016 the band entered the studio to record their debut album, produced by Juno Award-winner Colin Stewart (Dan Mangan, Black Mountain, Yukon Blonde). The upcoming 2017 release, titled Steady Sparrow, Steady Flight finds Perkons' residing comfortably in a post-Americana landscape. Though his dusty baritone remains at the front and center of the album, the dynamic arrangements carry the listener through the songs. The album features contributions from Pat McTaggart, Dave Thompson, Kathryn Calder, Laura Mitic, Marc Jenkins, Nevada Brown, Michael Lewis and Megan McCaffrey. Swaying between colorful indie folk and eerie country-noir, the music compliments the earnest writing woven throughout the songs.

The Half Moon Shine
https://thehalfmoonshine.bandcamp.com/releases

The Half Moon Shine is a band of women from Victoria, BC, initially bound together by their love of sweet country harmonies. Since they formed in 2015 as a good old-fashioned all-female country band, it’s been all-hands-on-deck. Each gal is a songwriter in her own right and from the get-go they were delighted to hear and share each other’s songs and flesh them out with luscious four-part harmonies, guitar riffs, and train beats. As the songs tumbled out, the country faded into the background, and their honest sound shifted into the light. Drawing on everything from classic doo-wop, spaghetti western, folk and surf rock, they couldn’t learn the songs as fast as they could write them. Bret Enemark (Carousels, Snoqualmie), Jocelyne Van Horn-Foy (Carousels, Running Water), Julia Knight (Bucan Bucan, Julia and the Spectacles, Aidan Knight), and Tanya Semple (Elder Sister Plum) are the four voices, guitars, bass, drums, and trumpets of this collective. Their live shows have a heavy dose of endearing banter, a juggling act of trading instruments and magically appearing trumpets, and all the sweet harmonies you could ask for. They don’t shy away from some heavy emotions on stage, but their positivity, love, and support for each other shines through. With each live performance, these women welcome you into their worlds of whiskey, adventure, and heartbreak, allowing you to find yourself within the stories they share.

Victoria's weekly intimate underground club night.

TYGER DHULA (Cobblestone Jazz)
https://www.residentadvisor.net/podcast-episode.aspx?id=78
Tyger Dhula is responsible for the loops and sampling side of Cobblestone Jazz, the Vancouver three-piece bringing the spirit of improvisation and jazz to techno. The band, made up of Dhula, Mathew Jonson (bass & drum programming) and Danuel Tate (live keys, vocals), have been particularly busy recently, releasing a string of singles and an album (23 Seconds) in 2007, but they’ve actually been playing together since the late nineties, not only in Cobblestone Jazz but in other Wagon Repair collaborative projects such as The Modern Deep Left Quartet (with The Mole) and Dante & Dhula.

While Jonson and Tate are responsible for the techno and jazz sides of Cobblestone respectively, Dhula’s role is a little more mysterious. With a background as a DJ and a producer, Dhula takes on the programming side of Cobblestone in the studio, while live he’s the man who ties it all together, mixing tracks, feeding samples to Tate and looping sounds and effects for the dancefloor.

One thing about Cobblestone Jazz is they like to do things their own way. When we asked trio for a mix for the RA podcast, lo and behold they took us literally, handing in the first ever Cobblestone Jazz-endorsed DJ set, handpicked and mixed by Dhula. "Dan and Mat actually entrusted me to do the mix and pick the records," say Tyger. The odd thing is that Dhula’s mix channels a lot of the same spirit as his band, this time via the decks. His rare RA set mixes up jazz-influenced house, hypnotic techno and Cobblestone productions to intriguing and original effect.


SCOTT W.
https://www.residentadvisor.net/dj/scottw.
Helped run Boomtown Records 1999-2007, one of the curators for New Forms Festival 2011-2017, made the soundtrack for the documentary “Memory of the Peace” about Fort st John(2017), collaborated with ARNP to release a 12” as Money Morning on Acting Press Records(2017).

NEO IMAGE (Mood Hut, Vancouver)

“As a member of two key groups, Aquarian Foundation and Kinetic Electronix, Chad Thiessen has long been involved in Mood Hut. Solo, he's taken longer to find his voice. A couple of tracks on a Pacific Rhythm compilation and a remix of Flørist on All Caps were decent takes on Vancouver's familiar fuzzy house style. On Thiessen's first full solo release, he doesn't develop a more distinctive identity. Instead, he executes a variety of minimalist ideas with a deft touch, demonstrating that versatility alone can be more than enough.” RA

SLEEP SCIENCE

Sleep Science was formed when vocalist/guitarist Taylor Nichol, bassist Dan Lomonaco and drummer Alex Moscrip all got together after working in many different bands and projects. Based in Vancouver, BC, they draw influences from all over to create their distinct, progressive/alternative-rock sound, which is hard-hitting, yet groovy, with deviant time signatures, articulate bass lines and wailing, sometimes ambient guitar work.

Eager to hit the studio almost immediately after forming, the band recorded their first EP Avoiding The Cure with Ryan Worsley, who’s produced acts including Dear Rouge, Derrival, and Little India. With their unique sound and tight live shows they started to build a loyal following on the West Coast. To kick off 2016, the guys flew down to LA and recorded their single Tears For The Money with Rick Parker (The Dandy Warhols, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Scott Weiland). The song has been featured on major rock radio stations across Canada and has been praised by Vancouver DJ Todd Handcock as being one of “the top 5 indie songs of 2016”.

In 2017, Sleep Science took their show on the road for a successful cross Canada tour which took them as far east as Montreal. The band also headed back down to LA to record 3 more songs with Rick Parker. October saw the first single, Sounds of the Underground released to heavy plays and rave reviews. The song showcases the band’s ability to juxtapose heavy grunge rock with haunting melodies and tastefully executed arrangements. Screamer Magazine described the song as “a masterpiece of what really good indie rock music is all about" and Alternative Nation said that “it hits you in the face with Nirvana Riffage". Their followup single, We Could Never Be was co-written with producer Nygel Asselin (Half Moon Run) and is already generating attention after its release. Sleep Science has big plans for 2018 including international performances and returning to the studio to record their next EP. http://www.sleepscienceband.com http://www.facebook.com/sleepsciencemusic http://www.twitter.com/sleepsciencevan http://www.instagram.com/sleepscience

SONDEROUS

Guitarist/vocalist Tyrell Beal and drummer Travis Chrysler met in Nanaimo, BC in 2012. Having left school shortly after starting, Beal spent his time writing and hoping to find someone to start a project with for a few years while Chrysler performed in thrash bands and finished up his diploma in jazz drumming. As fate would have it, the two ended up relocating to Victoria BC only a few months apart from each other, both with the desire to pursue music in a new city.

After each ended up with endeavors that didn’t work out, the two decided to start working together. It wasn’t long before they realized they were on the same page musically and decided to get a house together so they could focus on the music in more depth.

Soon after, old friend and bassist Zach Cameron joined the duo and things clicked even more. About a year into writing songs with the three members, Sonderous finally found their final member, Dylan Lammie, a young rock/blues phenom that Beal had met while working at a music store. With their solid 4 member lineup, the group began the recording of their EP in summer 2016. The rest as they say, is history.

DUTCHESS (Smasha & Kirtay) - Dubselekta

SMASHA
https://soundcloud.com/smasha9
Smasha is a veteran DJ with over a decade of experience behind her; first cutting her DJ chops in Calgary’s Drum & Bass scene through a number of high profile residencies. Initially a strictly vinyl DJ, she still remains one of the few remaining artists that you can consistently see carting her crates of records to each show. While her days are mostly now filled with being a Mom and day job responsibilities (where she flexes her other artistic abilities as a MAC makeup artist), she still finds time to regularly fit in DJing.

KIRTAY
https://soundcloud.com/dub-selekta
An all-around electronic music aficionado, and the force behind Dub Selekta (a multimedia site that showcases forward-thinking low-end electronic music), Kirtay is an avid supporter of the West Coast bass community. When not writing about music, or keeping busy managing various projects for Dub Selekta, Kirtay can be found in front of her turntables. With a signature sound developed from her own cumulative musical journey, Kirtay’s sets connect the dots between jungle and juke, whilst dabbling in bits of drum and bass and footwork.
-------------------------------------------------
HUWSWHO?! - Revelstoke
https://soundcloud.com/huwsaundersmusic

Seventeen years ago HuwsWho?! (aka Huw Saunders) went to his first rave and never looked back. Growing up on Vancouver Island in and around the electronic music scene had a huge impact on his life. Having many close DJ friends and continually collecting music along the way, the idea of DJing was always present but was not until he moved to the BC interior that a life behind the decks began to unfold. While always having interest in a wide variety of genres, drum n’ bass has been a passion from the beginning. This will be the first time HuwsWho?! has played Victoria and is excited to showcase some fun, smooth & sexy liquid dnb for all to enjoy!

L CON

L CON is the ever-evolving avant-pop project of Toronto-based songwriter and sonic adventurer Lisa Conway. Her recordings have been described as "ethereal, minimalist, experimental, unnerving…and downright elegant" (AUX), with the Toronto Star claiming, "Conway is bound for greatness, even if she doesn’t realize it yet." Although secretly born in Victoria, this is her first official show in BC's fair capital. http://www.lconofficial.com

THERESA PASALUKO

Fueled by emotion as raw and slicing as the bitter winds of northern B.C, Canadian singer-songwriter Theresa Pasaluko has staked her claim as an ambitious and powerful female force. From the rural landscape of Smithers to the sprawling streets of Vancouver, Pasaluko’s geographical influences channel through both her 2008 self-titled EP, and her 12-track album Sound of Town from 2010. Having honed a sound that blends her love of roots, rock and soul, the 28 year-old currently draws inspiration from her home of Victoria B.C. http://www.theresapasaluko.bandcamp.com

JAYA BREMER

Jaya has been singing since before she had front teeth and that’s no exaggeration. Enchanted by female powerhouses from Billie Holiday to Wynonna Judd, her musical influences cross quite a spectrum. Picking up a guitar in high school, songwriting was instinctual-the most natural outlet imaginable. She writes about growing up on the west coast, time spent on the ocean, in the forest, her travels and the navigation of the heart.

NEW YEARS EVE by Chinatown Events

Featuring;

DANE, Canada/Berlin (Common Edit)
https://www.residentadvisor.net/dj/dane

Dane hails from the icy Plaines of Canada’s North. Born and raised in the work hardy city of Edmonton, he grew up playing Shinny Hockey and driving a Zamboni in the local rinks. Naturally those cold nights on the ice led him directly to the warmth of the dance floor at the age of 15. From then on his life in Edmonton blossomed into being a part of a loving community, where he manned the local record shop and played his weekly residency at The Common for over half a lifetime. Now 32, Dane has relocated to Berlin with excitement for the oh so unpredictable, cosmic future ahead.

Over the years, a deep love and adoration for Western Canada grew. Spending time out in Vancouver and Victoria, falling in love with some of the finest people around. With timely meetings of Westcoast disco OG’s Koosh & Eddie C, coupled with the support of The Common, Dane had the gentle nudge needed to start his label Common Edit. Starting out as a simple excuse to press a record, throw a party and have a time, it soon became one of Canada’s foremost edit imprints, specializing in 7” & 12” cuts for the floor and bedroom.

Love, records and dancing have always been Dane’s passion. It shows in his sets with maniacal hair flips, expressive dancing and belting out lyrics to every hard dug record in his crates. Obsessive collecting and practice have made Dane one of Canada’s favourite 4x4 contributors. Carrying on the message of love, unity and lust for music, that you can feel every time you share the dance floor with him. Whatever the mood, he’ll take you higher and higher and let you leave happy and fulfilled.

"Space disco is the fusion of disco music with futuristic themes, sounds and visuals, a genre that became popular in the late 1970s. The main idea behind the genre is that of an exploration of the wonders of outer space by humans, and many bands often included robotic shapes, laser illumination and computer screen sequences in their live performances. The artists themselves often dressed in a manner inspired by glam rock and somewhat futuristic fashion."

Expect the best in killer space disco from the past to the present.

LADY AK - Comox Valley

https://soundcloud.com/lady_ak
http://djladyak.wixsite.com/music

Lady AK’s love for music began when she was a child. Growing up in a house full of musicians was a major influence in a development of what is yet to be her biggest passion. By age of 4 she was enrolled at a local art school in Kiev, Ukraine, where she immersed classical piano and music theory. Through the teenage years, she became interested in the dance music, would consistently record dozens of UK underground radio shows, gather mix tapes, CDs, eventually ending up with substantial collection of music.

At age of 16, she had an opportunity to learn the essentials of mixing, peaking her interest in DJ’ing. Later in 1999 she got her first pair of Gemini turntables and a box-full of random records, which gave a start. But it wasn't until 2004 when Lady AK saved enough to buy professional Technics turntables, explored the art of beat mixing and eventually started to get some local gigs. Since, she has played massive amount of club nights and parties throughout Canada, US and Europe. Whether it's a headlining or an opening slot, she has been fortunate enough to play at the most pristine venues, along-side some of the biggest names in the industry.

In the past 10 years, Lady AK has worked hard pushing the music industry through various club promotions, parties and festivals on the West Coast. After relocating to Nelson, BC few years ago, she enrolled herself into a Contemporary Music and Technology Program at a Selkirk College. By April 2013, she has successfully graduated from the 2-year program, acquiring herself a diploma in Music Production and Engineering. In that time, she explored many different genres of music, receiving extensive training in-a-state-of-art recording studio, covering all aspects of the appointed major. In addition, she spent many hours at the "Shambhala Music and Performance Hall" assisting instructors with engineering duties at a world-class performance facility, around the most recent and up-to-date digital technology. Besides Engineering and Music Production, she worked hard mastering her instrument and composition techniques, as well as learning how write, analyze, arrange and score music.

As a performing DJ, Lady AK is known to be exceptionally dynamic, who brings great energy to every dance floor. Her collection contains many different genres of music to create proper dancing atmosphere for any type of audiences. Lady AK is observant with a versatile style and she assures to get everyone’s attention with her selective sounds.

HRISTO
https://soundcloud.com/hristostoev
Hristo is a Bulgarian born DJ/producer based out of Victoria, Canada. He also runs his own Honey Disco and Friendly Monster record labels.
This boogie monster grew up in a bedroom filled with his father's records. He has followed in those footsteps and is always on the hunt for the “sweet groove.” This has led him to discover many interesting and rare records across many genres and develop his love for a broad range of music from around the world. Hristo’s current track selection is a journey through rare and timeless grooves from Africa, Europe and the Americas.

LITO FORD
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 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 gems of the late 70’s and early 80’s, her response is simple: “There’s disco, and there’s disco. I play disco”.

MIDI SYNC #5: Sex Death Religion, Psychic Pollution, Landscape Body Machine, Richard Quirk, Sara Gold , Cindy Reichel @ Copper Owl Nov 12 2017 - Oct 20th @ Copper Owl
2000 - 0000
$5 suggested donation at the door only.
MIDI SYNC is hosted by Garden City Electronic Music Society and the Copper Owl.

This is the 5TH night in this series. MIDI SYNC performances include a local cast of curated synthers carefully navigating the maze that is MIDI technology. An educational experience for players and non players alike.

How it works:

- 8 players take one MIDI clock signal to sync to their gear
- then players are randomly selected in pairs to jam out 20 min pieces
- once the first round of 20 minute performances are complete, performers are then placed in randomly selected groups of 4
- master jam! all 8 musicians work together to create one sonic masterpiece

The set up is open concept on the dance floor so that spectators can observe how each player is putting together their sonics using various types of hardware, drum machines and synthesizers. Each player is available to answer questions about their setups and chat about how they approach MIDI. If you're curious about hardware MIDI tech, this event is for you. Also lots of cool gear to check out as performers bring purchased hardware and machines that they have built. This is a strictly a no laptop, no ableton affair.

Performers are chosen based on their sonic palette and experience with MIDI equipment. The evenings music although unpredictable in nature will delv into the experimental and psychedelic sonic spectrum as well as encompassing anything from ambient soundscapes to minimal/glitch/downtempo/house electronic beats.

As usual there will be super rad projections.

Here is the first round of performers, more tba soon!

Grayson Caligari aka Sex Death Religion
Jro J Schuurman aka Psychic Pollution
Craig Joseph Huxtable aka Landscape Body Machine
Richard Quirk aka Richard Quirk
Sara Gold aka Sara Gold
Cindy Desmarais aka Cindy Reichel

It's only $5 at the door which is super cheap considering the massive talent usually involved.

this event is 19+ :(

James & The North Shore Kamloops, BC

http://www.facebook.com/jamesandthenorthshore
http://jamesandthenorthshore.bandcamp.com/

A new group honing their tones whilst living together at the crossroads. Imagine if Leonard Cohen took the reigns of Crazy Horse or Neutral Milk Hotel. You can get lost in the poetry or dance your faces off. “Those Hoodlums that make beautiful music."

The High Quadra Ramblers Victoria, BC

https://thehighquadraramblers.bandcamp.com/releases

The High Quadra Ramblers are newly formed duo creating their own interpretation of traditional music – fusing oldtime with classical, metis, bluegrass and more. Hailing from the East Coast and the West Coast, these ramblers bring both sides of the continent together for the love of traditional music.

The Ramblers were formed during the cold long winter over a need for mournful appalachian mountain tunes and a love of traditional music. Mack has played fiddle since he was 8, competing in Western Canadian fiddle competitions and developing a wild, syncopated style. Kaitlin picked up the banjo after playing guitar and piano all her life and found a rhythmic, melodic bliss. Banjo and fiddle are a timeless partnership of instruments. With beautiful oldtime vocal harmonies and skilled instrumentation, they weave intricate notes over the droning backdrop of clawhammer banjo. They play a wide range of traditional music, from metis to celtic, appalachian, oldtime, bluegrass, cajun and roots. Expect high-energy hillbilly hoedowns to droney, middle-eastern inspired instrumentals.

Vic Horvath, Victoria BC.

https://vichorvath.bandcamp.com/
https://www.vichorvath.com/

Vic Horvath is a singer-songwriting whose recently released debut album, West Coast Reign, is currently at number 8 on Earshot's National Folk/Roots/Blues Charts. Their music navigates social changes in Canada, looking through the lens of what it means to be queer in our times."

Lil Buddy and the Blue Meanies, Victoria BC

What if folk and jazz had a baby that was raised with punk low tones and lots of vibrato? From the streets to the stage stopping at a few gutters in between.

SPECTRASOUL - Ish Chat Music | Shogun Audio - UK
https://soundcloud.com/spectrasoul
https://www.facebook.com/spectrasoul/

Since their emergence in 2006, SpectraSoul have carved a truly unique position, not only in Drum & Bass, but electronic music as a whole. Having released music on only the very finest and most respected labels in the scene, from Goldie's legendary Metalheadz, to dBridge's boundary breaking Exit Records, and Kasra's ever progressive Critical Music, they went on to become vital members of Friction's irrepressible Shogun Audio imprint.

Beautifully deep and etched with groove yet powerful enough to move any dancefloor, SpectraSoul's stunning musical productions are a far cry from the soulless, synthetic rave fodder so many unfortunately associate with Drum & Bass today.
Their creative evolution has seen them incorporate such a variety of tempos and moods - bending genres in the process - yet their underlying sound remains instantly recognisable, and in many ways unique.

The breadth of their creative influences is a rarity within their peer group; taking influence not only from a unique mixture of musical genres and moments in time, but also from wider fields such as photography, art, film and beyond.

With the release of their debut album 'Delay No More' in July 2012, SpectraSoul received well-earned critical acclaim from an idiosyncratic plethora of supporters, and impacted, not only on UK shores, but across the globe leading to a touring schedule covering 4 continents and 30 countries, as well as radio support from far and wide. With the singles 'Light In The Dark' and 'Away With Me' gaining heavy rotation on BBC Radio 1, 1Xtra and 6Music. Their sophomore album, 'The Mistress' followed in 2015, and saw the duo gain notoriety from top DJ's at BBC Radio 1, and 1xtra, with the lead single, 'Always', serving as Annie Mac's 'Special Delivery'. The world tour that followed saw the duo playing extended 3 hour sets to allow them to showcase their discography, as well as the breadth of their taste within the 170bpm format. With this success came a string of high profile remixes for artists such as Jungle, John Newman, Raleigh Ritchie, Benzel, and Dornik, all of which gained support from specialist radio figureheads such as Annie Mac, Mistajam, Huw Stephens, Friction and others. With this success came a string of high profile remixes for artists such as Jungle, Rag N Bone Man, Dornik, Rudimental, Raleigh Ritchie and Benzel, all of which gained support from specialist radio figureheads such as Annie Mac, Mistajam, Huw Stephens, Friction and others.

2016 saw the duo spread their wings and launch their very own label, Ish Chat Music. With the release of three EPs in twelve months, they drastically upped the frequency and diversity of their output, with experimental tracks sitting alongside straight up club music. 001 to 003 garnered wide-ranging support from Radio 1and Beats 1 and from a variety of highly respected music media outlets such as DJ Mag, MixMag, Resident Advisor.

The final quarter of 2017 will see the release of their third studio album, ‘How We Live’; the fourth release on their own imprint. The album is an exploration of the underground sonic pallette and a return to the core ideals that formed the drum and bass genre; uncompromising, energetic, experimental and danceable. The duo, in their trademark fashion, straddle the varying styles within the genre and showcase, once again, the diversity of their production capabilities.

GHOSTWHIP (Philthtrax, Nelson BC)

As half owner / operator of Philthtrax Records this artist’s sole mission is to revamp booty music for today’s dance floors without losing the raw appeal of the 90’s.

Turntable sets consist of classic ghetto house and a new breed of booty of which he is an integral part of of. His own tracks are a modern take on Detroit’s ghettotech sound; prominent four-on-the-floor drum patterns, bubbly percussion and a healthy dose of R&B.

DJ TigRess (Victoria)

TigRess got her first taste of playing live when she stepped up to play a New Year's party in Kelowna in 2013. Playing alongside 5 accomplished DJ's, she quickly showed her natural prowess with her flavourful taste in music selection. As the dance floor filled up it was clear this tiger had earned her stripes. She was hungry for more and sunk in her teeth, securing a regular club night in Kelowna before moving to Victoria in 2014. Since that time, she’s been refining her craft while playing shows in Vancouver and private parties in Victoria. She also held a resident DJ slot on Funky Beatz Radio in the UK for 3 months. A fierce music lover, she brings contagious energy and joy with her when she’s lighting up a dance floor. TigRess is always on the hunt for that new sound and brings you the best of house, bass, tech-House and techno with a touch of Sass.

SPILLY WILLY (Victoria)

He's on a life-long musical odyssey, and all he wants to do is bring you along. A lifetime of festivals and shows has given Spilly Willy a deep passion for dancing and music curation. Usually found tearing up dance floors, it was a bush-rave in 2006 where he decided playing dance music was his true calling - since then he’s been DJing any chance he can get. From disco to house, glitch to psy, downtempo, funk, and even pop... if it’s got flow, melody, and bass: he’s on it.

Hurry Hard Records presents

Vissia
Place Holder Canadian Tour

Those of you who are fans of Alabama Shakes, or just good ole rock 'n' roll from a powerful female songwriter, might very well come to love Edmonton, Alberta's VISSIA. VISSIA might be a new name, but she is an old soul who bleeds blues. There is boldness in the direct songwriting, which suggests honesty pulled from real life experiences, but also a cleverness that comes from hard, steady work and maturity. This is pure rock 'n' roll at its finest from an artist who is set to breakout at any moment.

The Hermitess is the solo project of songwriter and harpist Jennifer Crighton, who comes by way of various other musical incarnations, including The Consonant C and Devonian Gardens. Stripping back the performance to a harp and a circle of women's voices, the Hermitess is an inquisitive, contrary, wounded, wise and ever dreaming incantation

“The Backhomes, with their futuristic sounds, are alerting us to the fact that the future is unknown, something that we innately fear. Whether it will turn out to be as ghastly as our worst nightmares or as heavenly as our sweetest dreams may come down to the subtle difference in how we perceive it.” (RIDE THE TEMPO)

Hansmole is the bedroom electro-pop project of Victoria-based artist Hannah van Adrichem.

GREG REKUS (Winnipeg)
With an acoustic guitar, giant stomp box, and punk rock tucked away in his back pocket, Greg Rekus' unique brand of Folk Punk or “Riot Folk” is like no other.

Finally, he has released two full length albums and a 7 inch in several different countries through a network of indie labels.

PAGES FROM THE OAK TREE
Starting as street performers in Victoria, Pages from the Oak Tree are something between Louisiana Blues and Eastern European old time. Bringing a Baltic twist to a warm folk sound and covering it in a heavy dose of foot stomping rhythm and heart warming harmonies. These three folks blend six instruments into a macabre sing-a-long and pour it over a waltzing old-time mosh pit.

feat.

firestarter (album release!)
https://firestartermusic.bandcamp.com/
firestarter is an apt name for Jaye Kovach's bubblegum-industrial avant-pop project. Her blistering guitar and synths sizzle and sputter out from around raw, thick drum machine beats - ember-like slow-burns radiating intense, glowing heat, and flared-out rave-ups that blaze furiously from a solid core of incandescent punk. It's also a fitting word for Jaye herself; her politically pyrotechnic lyrics on firestarter's first release, 2016's self-released Es-tro-jen-z, bring the album's digitally-mutated hooks into shape with sharp, agile broadsides against tyranny and brutality of all sorts, an explosion of synthetic artistic energy that clears the earth to make way for a better and more meaningfully human tomorrow.

&

Also Also Also
https://alsoalsoalso.bandcamp.com/
A new project put forth by Eden Rohatensky (Eden the Cat, Orphan Mothers, Rotten Spooky) that explores electronic pop in a different direction than anything they’ve done before. A mix of ethereal vocals, sarcastic hooks, synths and beats: Also Also Also looks to present itself as a cinematic experience.

Doors 8pm, $5, 19+

Death Kart
Victoria’s down-tempo post-punk slackers Death Kart spill their guts with the lo-fi richness required to spin lysergic daydreams into hazy somnambulisms.

Listen: https://deathkart.bandcamp.com/

The Foreign Resort are Denmark’s finest musical export of post-punk and dark new wave. The band combines the shadowy mysticism of The Cure’s Pornography era with a driving production aesthetic akin to LCD Soundsystem.

Listen: https://soundcloud.com/theforeignresort

Watch: https://youtu.be/RDsB6ikCe7E

Island Eyes are crafting exciting, experimental pop/rock that incorporates a range of instruments and electronics. Live, Island Eyes incorporate drum machines, various synths, delayed guitar and driving percussion to create their unique and grandiose sound.

Listen: https://islandeyes.bandcamp.com/

Watch: https://youtu.be/WtDUkrF_AQ0

Katabat are a bright, jangly indie rock band from Victoria. Named after a type of wind that cascades down a mountainside, the band echoes their namesake by playing rollicking, punchy rock songs with sharp twists and occasional dips into dream pop territory.

Garage Surf Night (Plus 7" Release Party): Bad Hoo, COLD CREATURE, Scrunt Brothers @ Copper Owl Aug 25 2017 - Oct 20th @ Copper Owl
2100
$10 adv $15 door Ticket Info
Cabaret Voltaire Diversions & Velvet Rut Records Presents:
A night of modern Garage Surf Rock...and the celebratory release of the much-anticipated Bad Hoo / Scrunt Brothers split 7" vinyl (VRR007).

Come out for the ginchiest night of the summer and let's see if we can make this THE Endless Summer we have all been hoping for!

It will be a search for the perfect riff. Between Cold Creature, the Scrunt Brothers, and Bad Hoo there will be too many perfect riffs to settle on just one...

And don’t you forget while you're groovin’ away to pick up a copy of 'HaHa Munny' -- the new 7" split featuring Bad Hoo and the Scrunt Brothers (fka Clunt & The Scrunts). This lil black circle comes hot off the presses and is carefully curated by Victoria’s own boutique vinyl label Velvet Rut Records.

This is a summer surf-themed night, so feel free to dress up. And as an extra incentive there will be a tiiiight goodie for the best dressed!

Cold Creature- B-movie fuelled psych vibes, channeling the Mr. Weirdo in all of us.
https://coldcreature.bandcamp.com/album/ep-1

The Scrunt Brothers- Damn fine dirty garage, at times schizophrenic, but never miss a beat
https://thescruntbrothers.bandcamp.com/

Bad Hoo- High octane surf punk bop-bop fun rock till you drop-drop, these boys ride their woody at 200 on their way to Jordan River (full disclosure: they're crap surfers)
https://badhoo.bandcamp.com/

PLUS
DJ Clint Notingham will be burning up the turntables with a great selection of surf & garage rock tunes for you to get your freak on to!

Mr. Weirdo will be returning to provide state of the art psychedelic water art projections and visuals throughout the night!

&
Mother’s Worry Go Go Dancers will be keeping up the energy all night long. But remember -- only looking with your eyes, not your hands! These talented dancers are both independently acclaimed (The Velvet Unicorn) as well as being part of the boundary-breaking and mind- expanding Riot Grrrls Burlesque Revue! Truly a privilege!

DWELLERS ON THE THRESHHOLD


An exhilarating night of improvised rock and sound for the discerning and adventurous space-cadet at Victoria’s favourite indie venue. Watch and listen as the primordial unformed becomes manifest. The evening’s aural thaumaturgies will be engineered by some the Island’s least predictable artists:

*EL HOMBRE AL AGUA* (Nanaimo)
Is that a bass guitar or an atom smasher? Member of Moths & Locusts and Annunaki will confuse and amaze.

http://noiseagonymayhem.com/

*TRIAL x STONE* (Victoria)
Pacific Northwest Sludge adepts make it up as they go. References include Soundgarden, Sleep, Subarachnoid Space, Magma; but never the same tune twice, ever http://www.trialxstone.bandcamp.com
https://www.facebook.com/trialxstone/

*FORMIDABLE LIQUOR|CE* (Victoria)
Fierce punks, bad attitudes and sharp chops, also all improvised.
Psych, industrial-electronic and analog instuements set

https://formidableliquorice.bandcamp.com/

*LL* (Victoria)
AKA CFUV’s Fiji Mermaid and the strange lady behind Cabaret Voltaire Diversions. Her ways are weird and her theremin-and-machete performances get weirder.

walter tv
Walter Tv is a chopped and screwed remix of an epic dubstep riff. undeniably bassy, these 3 lewd dudes from Vancouver Canada ruin the stage. onlookers rant as they fall to their knees in splendor and awe. the force of sound emanating from inside these incestuous creodonts is in close resemblance to a putrid defilers rugose moan. hoping to play in a city near you, and to kiss you on the lips.

Coffee Eyes (acoustic pop-punk)

Coffee Eyes is an Acoustic pop-punk duo from Victoria, Canada. After meeting at a local show, members Joel Cossette and Xana Morris bonded over their love of music ranging from heavy hitting emo bands to fun and vibrant pop artists. They assembled in 2015 as an acoustic duo with a focus on tightly crafted songs that rely heavily on lyrics to connect with fans. They started garnering attention thanks to shout outs from the international magazine Alternative Press, famous youtuber Bryan Stars, and producer The Machine (Fall Out Boy, Gym Class Heroes). They are currently writing and preparing for the release of their debut album.

REFLEKTOR - Vancouver
https://soundcloud.com/reflektordnb
https://www.facebook.com/reflektordnb/

Nestled deep within the many sub-genres of Drum & Bass, Vancouver's emerging production trio, Reflektor, has been firing on all fronts.
Their creations blend the soulful, melodic stylings of Liquid Drum & Bass with a barrage of deeper elements. An addictive sound complimented with the seamless, pin-point percussion we've heard within Reflektor's mindful productions are a sure fire way to submit yourself to another planet within their musical realm.
But they don't stop there... Reflektor has a live edge with their in-depth musical library to go with an uncanny ability to blend tracks. Mixing seamlessly and leaving fans on their toes for the next transition, Reflektor has without a doubt become a staple in the Vancouver Drum & Bass scene.

the Copper Owl presents:

FOONYAP (calgary)
"...one of the most wildly talented and expressive artists I have ever seen." -Calgary Herald

"...a gorgeous combination of the delicate and lovely with a tornado of powerful emotions..." - Song by Toad

​FOONYAP’s musical aspirations emerged in a dark world, permeated by rigid structures and exceptionally high standards; a world she could never fully accept but was ultimately forced to navigate. 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. Largely exposed to only influences of classical music studies, Catholicism and traditional Chinese culture, FOONYAP spent years facing off against feelings of oppression, patriarchy, judgement and struggles with conformity, alongside a desperate longing for acceptance and understanding.

Eventually, amidst her frustration, deepest suffering and constant search for self-awareness, FOONYAP managed to achieve slight yet remarkable growth through her own self-destruction. In experiencing the openness that came with recognizing the breaking point in her own misery, FOONYAP was able to grasp the shattered fragments of her musical past with new positive intentions. It was through these positive intentions that she was able to rediscover herself through the creative process.

FOONYAP’s music is a deeply raw and unguarded reflection of her tumultuous journey to self-discovery. What it means to not only accept but to love oneself, to engage in the incredibly challenging experience of letting go of all the past’s preconceptions, to create a new space for learning and understanding. These are some of the complex themes captured in FOONYAP’s boldly individual compositions.

Now an in-demand performer and collaborator, FOONYAP’s talent spans the protest rock of Art Bergmann to soundtracks for Anne Koizumi’s introspective films. She toured various parts of Europe as a solo act in 2010 and 2011; additionally, she explored alternative expressions and styles while performing in bands like Woodpigeon and her own FOONYAP and The Roar. A hauntingly beautiful blend of folk and electronic that incorporates her Chinese heritage, FOONYAP’s sound is refreshingly unique and astoundingly honest. Each song captures various components of her past and present realities, be it through dark soundscapes that mirror anxious longing, or powerful electronic rifts that reflect painful life transitions. Music now allows FOONYAP to use a voice she always knew she had but never knew how to find, in a world she always knew existed but could never figure out how to be part of. Instead of feeling forced, trapped, and confined, FOONYAP finds the most unexpected outlets. In those times when she feels like she can’t breathe, FOONYAP creates.

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 gems of the late 70’s and early 80’s, her response is simple: “There’s disco, and there’s disco. I play disco”.

DUBCONSCIOUS - Nelson
Shambhala Music Festival | Dubslingers
https://soundcloud.com/dubconscious
https://www.facebook.com/djdubconscious

Dubconscious has come to represent both the east and the western coast of Canada. Born in Toronto and raised on the jungle / drum’n’bass sounds permeating the city in the late 90s & early 2000s, he developed a taste for hard beats drenched in reggae vibes. 2004 brought a big move across the country to the city of Victoria, which was nurturing a fledgling breaks and jungle scene – by the end of his first year of University, he had bought his first set of Technics and the seed was planted. Bouncing back and forth between Toronto and Victoria for the next three years of school presented plenty of opportunities to play different music to new crowds, adding reggae & dancehall to his repertoire, as well dubstep – in its infancy at this point. After school the move was made back east, joining up with the Dubslingers crew in Toronto, while they were holding down Canada’s longest running dubstep weekly - Dubslingers Wednesdays at Thymeless.

Having established a name for himself in Toronto’s competitive scene, he headed west once more, this time settling in Nelson, BC. After spending two productive years in the area immersing himself in both the great outdoors & the underground party scene, he's moved on further west to Vancouver, where he continues to DJ all across the board - dropping sets jam packed with a mash of many forms of urban & modern bass music at a wide selection of venues across the city, the province, and the country on a regular basis.

Appearing in nearly every major city in Canada, and sharing the stage with a wide and varied spectrum of headliners - from Beenie Man and Barrington Levy, to Andy C, Shy FX and Dillinja to The Roots, Mixmaster Mike and Blockhead, to Gramatik , Dub FX, Glitch Mob and Beats Antique, to Bicep and Kastle, to Salva, Clicks & Whistles and the Gaslamp Killer to Truth, Plastician and Rusko - he's proven his versatility many times over, across an array of arenas. He's also appeared at numerous music festivals including BC's Shambhala (5x), Bass Coast (2x), Diversity, Motion Notion, Loki and the BC Ska Fest, WEMF and Harvest Festival in Ontario, and the Dragon Festival in Granada, Spain. He has been curating a Sunday night weekly at The Keefer Bar in Vancouver for over two years, and was also running an all-vinyl reggae & dancehall weekly, Wax Wednesdays at the Waldorf - the poster for which was featured in the music video for Major Lazer & Busy Signal's "Bumaye."

• BENDY, Realeyes Talent
The love of dance music is strong with Bendy, who began his life long record collecting journey at age 14. By age 20 he had his own radio show in Hamilton, Ontario, where he spent the following 4 years developing his interests in various styles of quality sounds, namely brit-pop moving towards house music. A move to the west coast in 2001 turned his focus towards DJing, and he’s continued to fill dance floors ever since.

Like many who crave the knowledge of house music’s origins, he started to delve into disco, and discovered an instant love for the deeper grooves. Despite calling himself a “picky old codger who plays music that makes me want to dance”, crowds continue to adore his every selection, making him a highly sought after DJ for music festivals, night clubs and private parties.

• KOOSH, resident
A record collector and audio manipulator of a quarter century. Koosh has played all types of parties from the underground break-in loft jams of the early 90’s to the modern day mega festivals. When it comes party time Koosh can take it just a little higher. Dubbin out underground disco classics for the enlightened dancers for extended multi hour sets. Building a heightened environment for friends to have the time of their lives has been a life long commitment.

TigRess (Victoria)

TigRess got her first taste of playing live when she stepped up to play a New Year's party in Kelowna in 2013. Playing alongside 5 accomplished DJ's, she quickly showed her natural prowess with her flavourful taste in music selection. As the dance floor filled up it was clear this tiger had earned her stripes. She was hungry for more and sunk in her teeth, securing a regular club night in Kelowna before moving to Victoria in 2014. Since that time, she’s been refining her craft while playing shows in Vancouver and private parties in Victoria. She also held a resident DJ slot on Funky Beatz Radio in the UK for 3 months. A fierce music lover, she brings contagious energy and joy with her when she’s lighting up a dance floor. TigRess is always on the hunt for that new sound and brings you the best of house, bass, jackin, funk, ghetto funk, hip hop and dance.

Victoria's weekly intimate underground club night.

BRON, Edmonton (Heart to Heart)

Weaned on a diet of hip hop from masters like Pete Rock and Kut Master Kurt through his teens, Bron truly fell under the spell of club music after catching house legend Danny Tenaglia perform one of his legendary marathon sets in 1999. Bron’s been DJing ever since, producing for the last decade, and remains committed to exploring the quirky underbelly of the electronic underworld. Hailing from Edmonton, Alberta, Bron is a fan favourite in Canada’s West, and isn't stopping there.

He’s been in good company, DJing together regularly with fellow Edmontonian and Chinatown Events regular Dane MacDonald. Whether it’s faith in their respective programming choices or in the crowd being assured of a great party, they've become synonymous with good times and great music.

https://soundcloud.com/morningshowmusic/sets/prom-theme

San Felix
If Modest Mouse and the Talking Heads had a fist fight, this band would be the bruises; formed from a host of other Victoria-area acts, San Felix is a sinuous blend of sand-strewn guitar, mirage-conjuring synth and a hook-heavy rhythm section
https://soundcloud.com/sanfelixband/sets/tropic-of-self-preview

Wise Child
At the forefront of Wise Child's driving, melodic indie-pop is lead singer Jaya Bremer’s lush, expressive alto, contrasted and supported by Roger Eldridge’s melodic electric guitar.

Peter Brötzmann,  Heather Leigh, Insular Dwarfism @ Copper Owl Jun 1 2017 - Oct 20th @ Copper Owl
2000
$20 Ticket Info
the fifty fifty arts collective new music presents: Peter Brötzmann and Heather Leigh

Thursday June 1st at The Copper Owl Tix $20 at Cavity & Online

A meeting between saxophonist Peter Brötzmann and pedal steel guitarist Heather Leigh.

Peter Brötzmann is a giant of European free jazz, and indeed avant-garde jazz and free improvisation in general. His legendary second album, Machine Gun, remains a ferocious and imposing work and essentially stands as a document of the formation of the European free improvisation scene. He has led and collaborated with others on numerous influential recordings, including Schwarzwaldfahrt which was recorded outside Germany’s Black Forest and found him playing sax while Han Bennink drummed on trees and other objects. He has served as a member of such blistering groups as the noise rock and heavy metal influenced Last Exit (with Sonny Sharrock, Ronald Shannon Jackson, and Bill Laswell) and the Albert Ayler indebted Die Like a Dog Quartet (with Toshinori Kondo, William Parker, and Hamid Drake). He has remained active, tirelessly recording and touring, since his 1967 debut For Adolphe Sax.

Heather Leigh wields the pedal steel guitar like no one else. With echoes of American folk traditions, avant-garde jazz, and the furthest extremes of noise experimentation present, she renders her instrument’s voice into expressive wails and lilts that belie its oft-typecast laid back country image. She has collaborated with such peerless music luminaries as Jandek, Charalambides, Richard Youngs, MV & EE, Stefan Jaworzyn, Chris Corsano, Smegma, and many more. Her latest album, I Abused Animal, is her first proper studio release and was met with universal acclaim. The Quietus wrote, “Even hundreds of listens in, I can’t quite put my finger on why ‘I Abuse Animal’ is so wondrous, but it is, and Heather Leigh has emerged from centuries of tradition and the improv world she is most closely associated with, to deliver a work of art that exists in a world all of its own.”

$10 at the door only.
"Not My Fault Productions" presents a night of hard funk and seamless grooves. Don't miss your chance to witness 2 of Victoria's most danceable acts in one room.

THE PARTY ON HIGH STREET
If you were to put the playfulness of George Clinton, the quirkiness of Tom Waits, and the energy of Primus into a cauldron and mixed it together, you would brew up the likes of "The Party on High Street". Hailing from Victoria BC, the trio has conjured up their own style of west-coast funk.

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.

The fifty fifty arts collective
presents

Woods
http://www.woodsist.com/woods/
American folk rock band from Brooklyn NY formed in 2005. The band consists of Jeremy Earl (vocals, guitar), Jarvis Taveniere (various instruments, production), Aaron Neveu (drums), Chuck Van Dyck (bass) and Kyle Forester (keyboards, sax).

Woods have released nine albums, the latest being City Sun Eater in the River of Light. Pitchfork Media reviewed one of their previous albums, Songs of Shame, giving the band its "Best New Music" designation and described the sound as "a distinctive blend of spooky campfire folk, lo-fi rock, homemade tape collages, and other noisy interludes, all anchored by deceptively sturdy melodies."

Wired To The Sky (LP Release!!!)
Wired To The Sky is the newest project from Canadian songwriter, Dylan Perkons. After relocating from Montreal to the West Coast, he began performing new material with a group of Vancouver Island musicians. In late 2016 the band entered the studio to record their debut album, produced by Juno Award-winner Colin Stewart (Dan Mangan, Black Mountain, Destroyer). The upcoming 2017 release, titled Steady Sparrow, Steady Flight displays nine of Perkons’ most compelling songs to date. Featured with him are core members Nevada Brown, Pat McTaggart, and Dave Thompson, alongside guest musicians Kathryn Calder, Laura Mina, Marc Jenkins, and Megan McCaffrey. The album sees the band move into adventurous sonic territory swaying between colorful indie folk, eerie psych rock, and blistering alt-country. Full arrangements and Neil Young-esque guitar work compliment the earnest, somewhat melancholy writing woven throughout the songs. Wired To The Sky will be touring western Canada in summer 2017.

Ryan Boldt
http://ryanboldt.bandcamp.com/
Smokey low key folk music with a mild touch of psychedelia.

Ryan Boldt is a Canadian musician and songwriter, best known as the lead singer of Canadian prairie gothic folk band, The Deep Dark Woods. The band originates from Boldt’s birthplace of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.

In November 2014, Boldt released his debut solo album The Broadside Ballads. The release features a collection of Boldt’s renditions of traditional North American and British folk songs.

Other influences on Boldt’s performances and songwriting include Ian and Sylvia Tyson, Bob Dylan, The Stanley Brothers, Neil Young, The Grateful Dead, The Band and Leonard Cohen.

Boldt is co-founder of Big White Cloud Recs, a Saskatchewan, Alberta and BC based record label.

Evan Cheadle
https://evancheadle.bandcamp.com/releases
Evan Cheadle’s sophomore album, Make Your Way, made its way into the world via Bandcamp in March of this year. The album, recorded mostly live at a makeshift home studio in a mere two days, serves as a testament to Cheadle’s burgeoning songwriting talent. Cheadle’s intricate guitar picking and delicate vocals instantly transport listeners to a diverse musical world inhabited by the likes of Bert Jansch, Big Bill Broonzy, John Fahey, and Nick Drake. all-the-while avoiding nostalgia’s tepid waters; Cheadle, it seems, stands outside of time.

SUBMORPHICS - Shogun | Hospital | Liquid V | Metalheadz
https://soundcloud.com/submorphics
https://www.facebook.com/Submorphics

Submorphics (Greg Axelrad) has made his name with soul-drenched, deep, emotive, nostalgic yet forward-thinking music. Starting from the very bottom, Submorphics eventually rose through the ranks of the DnB scene, now releasing on only the top labels in the genre: Shogun Audio, Hospital, Liquid V, Innerground, Good Looking, Spearhead; etc.

Anthems such as "Summer Soul," "Organ Grinder (Calibre Remix)," "Higher Ground ft. T.R.A.C," "Burning Love," "Long Been Gone" and "The Divine ft. Jenna G" have seen extensive play on BBC Radio 1, Apple Beats1 Radio and clubs worldwide.

Drawing on eclectic influences from his formative years in Detroit and Chicago, Submorphics' sounds have been heavily supported by a who's-who's list of A-list DJs, yielding praise from both sides of the Atlantic.

Now based in San Francisco, Submorphics continues to relentlessly complete new music, always stepping up his game, while touring the US and Europe as much as possible. As a DJ, Submorphics sonically alloys disparate styles; the grimy and the smooth, the hypnotic and the astonishing.
2014 saw the release of the acclaimed "Burnside Park" EP on Liquid V, followed by Submorphics' first single on Friction's inimitable SGN:LTD imprint. In 2015, the pace was picked up once again with appearances on the 'Hospitality 2015' + 'Fast Soul Music' compilations on Hospital Records, as well as a remix for Lenzman's 'Looking at the Stars Remix EP' on Metalheadz. After that, SGN:LTD released Submorphics' "The Divine EP" to widespread fanfare and scene support.

Stay tuned for much more from Submorphics, a rare talent whose unique vision sets him apart as one of the genre's ones-to-watch for the future.

Bill Johnson Blues Band
JUNO Nominee, Maple Blues Nominee (4X), and well respected bluesman BILL JOHNSON brings his quartet to The Copper Owl in Victoria. Listening to Bill play and sing the blues is like taking a master class in how its done.

A review from Goldmine Magazine on Bill's latest album:

"Canadian Bill Johnson has a great voice. Its what holds his self-released fourth album Cold Outside togetherthat, and his compositional prowess. The dude knows how to string some sentences into a cohesive whole, make em rhyme, and have em come out profound. To hear him sing his 11 originals while playing guitar and leading his keyboards/bass/drums band is to feel what hes feeling. His is a communicable enthusiasm, be it the Nine Dollar Bill hes trying to pass or what Makes A Fella Nervous totin around his Angry Guitar with My Natural Ability, Free From My Trouble.Highlights all, Johnson rolls with a savvy flair.

http://billjohnsonblues.com

Opening the night, from Vancouver, is THE JOHN PIPPUS BAND. SoundProof Magazine has declared him,"a folk/roots gem"; The Vancouver Province says he's:"a refined tunesmith with serious pop hooks". Earshot Magazine says:"He has a gift for making us believe that he's been down the road and around the block, and is still kickin' it.The Vancouver Sun says:He lives and breathes his musical muse.John tours regularly in The Netherlands, Ontario, and around BC. He has released four albums, and has just released a 5-song EP, Weapons Of Emotion

She combines the intricate guitar picking of Americana with grunge and psychedelic dreamscapes, drawing comparisons to 70’s folk legend Karen Dalton.

Tue. April 18th 2017  MIDI SYNC #4 Psychic Pollution, Landscape Body Machine, Sealion, Sprial Coyote, Porta2Note, Rozek, Overseas Territory

MIDI SYNC #4: Psychic Pollution, Landscape Body Machine, Sealion, Sprial Coyote, Porta2Note, Rozek, Overseas Territory @ Copper Owl Apr 18 2017 - Oct 20th @ Copper Owl
2000 - 0000
$5 at the door only.
MIDI SYNC is hosted by Garden City Electronic Music Society and the Copper Owl.

This is the 4TH night in this series. MIDI SYNC performances include a local cast of curated synthers carefully navigating the maze that is MIDI technology. An educational experience for players and non players alike.

How it works:

- 8 players take one MIDI clock signal to sync to their gear
- then players are randomly selected in pairs to jam out 20 min pieces
- once the first round of 20 minute performances are complete, performers are then placed in randomly selected groups of 4
- master jam! all 8 musicians work together to create one sonic masterpiece

The set up is open concept on the dance floor so that spectators can observe how each player is putting together their sonics. Each player is available to answer questions about their setups and chat about how they approach MIDI. If you're curious about hardware MIDI tech, this event is for you. Also lots of cool gear to check out as performers bring purchased hardware and stuff that they built. This is a strictly a no laptop, no ableton affair.

Performers are chosen based on their sonic palette and experience with MIDI equipment. The evenings music although unpredictable in nature will delv into the experimental and psychedelic sonic spectrum as well as encompassing anything from ambient soundscapes to minimal/glitch/downtempo/house electronic beats.

As usual there will be super rad projections.

Confirmed performers so far:

Daniel Demers aka Overseas Territory

Lorne Hammond aka Sea Lion

Jay Hammer aka Porta2Note

J. Schuuurman aka Psychic Pollution

Chris Rozek aka Rozek

Alexander aka Spiral Coyote

Craig Huxtable aka Landscape Body Machine

+ one more ( that could be you, pm Jro J Schuurman if you're interested in playing)

It's only $5 at the door which is super cheap considering the massive talent usually involved.

this event is 19+ :(

This is a fundraising event in partnership with PODA (Partnerships for Opportunities Development Association) an NGO and grass roots collaboration that strives to support sustainable development in communities in Uganda. Their projects aim to empower African communities with sustainable revenue building and educational opportunities. The profits generated by this fundraiser will go to 2 of their many innovative projects:
The community beekeeping initiative- Helping buy new hives, bee suits and a smoker as well as providing village residents with apiary training. This program is both revenue generating and conservationist, as the bees keep elephants out of agricultural areas in turn protecting them from potential poaching.
Sewing project- Supplying sewing machines and materials for reusable pads, so female students have equal opportunity of education as well as repairing student uniforms.

This event will take place at Copper Owl
April 2nd 8pm until 11pm

Also, a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a copy of that 0=0 record that never came out on Planet Mu, and two dozen dj mixers with no mids. Not that we needed all that for the trip, but once you get locked into a serious drum and bass collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can. The only thing that really worried me was the Calibre. There is nothing in the world more helpless and irresponsible and depraved than a man in the depths of an Calibre binge, and I knew we'd get into that rotten stuff pretty soon.

Fri. March 3rd 2017  Zoo Riots, Peach Pit, Andrew Phelan , Teenage Wedding

Zoo Riots, Peach Pit, Andrew Phelan , Teenage Wedding @ Copper Owl Mar 3 2017 - Oct 20th @ Copper Owl
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" - Sarah Fawcet, Red On Black Music.

Australian born, Vancouver based singer Andrew Phelan writes close to the chest, and this heartfelt approach to songwriting quickly cut a path in the Canadian music scene after he formed Folk band The River and The Road with Canadian musicians in 2011. The past 5 years have included multiple cross Canada tours, shows across Japan and Australia, a nomination for breakthrough album of the year at the Canadian Folk Music Awards, and supporting such artists as Sam Roberts, The Arkells, Shakey Graves, and John Paul White of Civil Wars.

Poetry Workshop with: Adèle Barclay @ Copper Owl Feb 15 2017 - Oct 20th @ Copper Owl
1630 - 1800
By Donation
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.

Thu. February 9th 2017  Strike A Pose Dance Party DJ Nova Jade* Greene

Strike A Pose Dance Party: DJ Nova Jade* Greene @ Copper Owl Feb 9 2017 - Oct 20th @ Copper Owl
2100 - 0200
$10
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”. We invite you to come to our “Strike a Pose Dance Party” at the Copper Owl for a chance to show off your best dance moves, have fun and celebrate these pioneers of sexual freedom. All proceeds will benefit programs at AIDS Vancouver Island. We will warm up with a Vogue dancing lesson at around 9:30pm and throughout the evening AVI’s very own Screw Crew will be there offering educational resources and safer sex supplies.

DJ Nova Jade* Greene, an award-winning DJ, will be our musical guide for the night. Her musical range is eclectic and vast, and she is excited to help create a memorable atmosphere for every event she gets to participate in! Connect at: Facebook.com/djhealthcoach

Tickets $10, see link below

Nicholas Lyons


Nicholas Lyons has been a freelance writer for over ten years. His work has appeared in publications such as Exclaim!, Monday Magazine, Rifflandia Magazine, and Beatroute Magazine. Nick was the Founder and Editor in Chief of analogue magazine from December of 2013 to February of 2016. Bound in Blood and Skin is Nick's first novel.

Nicholas Lyons started work on Bound in Blood and Skin ten years ago, shortly after graduating with distinction in English from the University of Calgary. The first two chapters came to him in a day and he was immediately very excited by their potential. He has had the good fortune, throughout these five years to have former professor, now friend, A. Mary Murphy as a mentor. Mary, a published poet, professional writing consultant and recipient of several writing grants, has helped him at every stage of the writing process, offering indispensable advice and critique. When he read the first two chapters to her, she said, confidently, that they were the seeds of what would be his first novel; as always, she was righ

A strange and complex novel has indeed grown from the seeds of the first chapters. The novel might best be described as magical realism. Weighing in at approximately 100, 000 words, the novel is about a young writer who struggles to come to terms with his main character, the mystical bastard, butcher son of Louis Riel. This character reveals himself slowly to his creator through conversations, historical documents and, ultimately, the author’s own imagination. As the novel progresses, the line between author and subject dissolves, forcing the reader to question who made who.

This novel is an homage to disparate literary and musical traditions. At the outset of the novel’s composition, I was at the height of my Thomas Wolfe obsession (the first chapters composed shortly after a trip to North Carolina to sit at his grave): the novel’s very title bears reference to one of his lesser known works. There are many other influences too. The novel borrows styles and themes from The Gospel of John, Salman Rushdie’s Midnight’s Children and Reinaldo Arena’s Singing From the Well. There are poets and musicians here too: Rainer Maria Rilke (as translated by Stephen Mitchell) joins Walt Whitman, Carey Mercer, Edgar Lee Masters, Bob Dylan, William Blake, Dan Bejar and Jack Kerouac (Mexico City Blues Kerouac, that is) all lend their voices to Milk and Honey’s strange, drunken choir.

DJ TIGRESS
(Victoria)
facebook.com/djtigress
soundcloud.com/djtigress

TigRess got her first taste of playing live when she stepped up to play a New Year's party in Kelowna in 2013. Playing alongside 5 accomplished DJ's, she quickly showed her natural prowess with her flavourful taste in music selection. As the dance floor filled up it was clear this tiger had earned her stripes. She was hungry for more and sunk in her teeth, securing a regular club night in Kelowna before moving to Victoria in 2014. Since that time, she’s been refining her craft while playing shows in Vancouver and Victoria. She also held a resident DJ slot on Funky Beatz Radio in the UK for 3 months. A fierce music lover, she brings contagious energy and joy with her when she’s lighting up a dance floor. TigRess is always on the hunt for that new sound and brings you the best of house, bass, jackin, funk, ghetto funk, hip hop and dance.

SPILLY WILLY
(Victoria)

He's on a life-long musical odyssey, and all he wants to do is bring you along. A lifetime of festivals and shows has given Spilly Willy a deep passion for dancing and music curation. Usually found tearing up dance floors, it was a bush-rave in 2006 where he decided playing dance music was his true calling - since then he’s been DJing any chance he can get. From disco to house, glitch to psy, downtempo, funk, and even pop... if it’s got flow, melody, and bass: he’s on it.

EDDIE C (Red Motorbike, Endless Flight) - Berlin/Canada http://www.facebook.com/therealeddiec http://www.soundcloud.com/eddiec

Raised in Southern Ontario somewhere between Detroit and Montreal, Eddie C began his experiments in music some time in the late 80s. Inspired first by Hip Hop and the burgeoning Acid House scene, he began making tape edits of late night radio and shortly thereafter began visiting record shops and warehouse parties to discover the music first hand. Record digging, DJing and production has since been a way of life for the man, followed closely by an opposing passion for skiing which lead him to his 10 year sabbatical in the Rocky Mountains of Canada. With plenty of time in the Noughties for reflection and research in his log cabin studio, C recently re-located and reconnected with the electronic music community in Berlin where he has remained for the past few years. His raw yet sophisticated approach to production has yielded countless releases and remixes since just 2009 and his now renowned eclectic and passion-fueled DJ sets powered by a lifetime of record digging have garnered a cult following worldwide.
Eddie C could well be described as one of the heaviest hitters in the Slo Mo / Edits / Disco scene. In just over six years he has released and/or been featured on over 40 original EPs and singles as well as completing countless remixes covering all bases of Underground Dance Music from House and Techno to Afro-Cosmic and Down Tempo. Having graced labels like Endless Flight, Crue-L, Sleazy Beats, Jiscomusic, Wolf Music, 7 Inches of Love & Lumberjacks in Hell, amongst others, with his deep, lush and beautiful grooves, C is constantly name checked by every major playa this end of the underground. In 2011 he released his first full-length album “Parts Unknown” on Endless Flight and later that year began releasing new projects on his own Red Motorbike imprint still going strong to this day. His second album, also on Endless Flight, “Country City Country” dropped in 2013, and in 2015 “High Road” and “Low Road” on Red Motorbike Records and Tapes; a coupling of sample based cosmic-funk experiments within a Hip Hop mixtape framework. The fact is, the guy hardly needs an introduction.

KOOSH (7 inches of Love)
http://www.residentadvisor.net/dj/koosh
https://soundcloud.com/koosh-koosh

A record collector and audio manipulator of a quarter century. Koosh has played all types of parties from the underground break-in loft jams of the early 90’s to the modern day mega festivals.

SUNSHINE JONES (live)

IN THE TIME LEADING UP TO NOW...
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. So I packed up everything, and I mean absolutely everything, and drove it up to the upper Haight and set it all up in his shop Housewares and played a 3 hour set. The first gig for Paul went even better than that. Then the guys at Spundae offered me a residency and it was on… Urb wrote about my band, and we piled into a van and drove to New York City. The rest of that story is essentially undocumented history. You just had to be there.

The best thing about playing live, aside from the experience itself has always been the mind-blowing nature of defying people’s expectations. I will never forget being in the middle of a live set at Family Groove in Los Angeles in 1992 and this woman in a fur coat was marching back and forth between the staircase and the DJ booth looking for the DJ. She looked really upset. Finally she leaned over to me and shouted “Where IS the DJ?!!” and I said “I’m performing live right now.” And she huffed back into the DJ booth, and then back to me and shouted again “Where is the DJ?” and I smiled and said “I am playing live right now.” and she leaned over to better yell into my ear, and actually stopped the sequencer and shouted “I just want to know if any Janet Jackson is going to be played here tonight, otherwise I am going home!” and it picked up on my microphone, and everyone in the club roared and cheered and she looked up, and looked around looked so confused. So I said into the microphone “You guys wanna hear some Janet Jackson?” and the crowd went completely mental. So I pressed play on the sequencer, and everyone got down, even the woman who was going to leave if no one was going to play any Janet Jackson.

For the next 10-12 years I traveled around the world with all my gear, setting up on the floor, in the dark, on a mission to express that everyone is a star, and the dancer is the most important one of all. Anyone can create rhythm, melody, words and sounds. I sat down on the floor of record shops, electronics stores, and cafes to host seminars where I demonstrated how plugs, and sync, and midi and synthesizers work together to create music. Eventually I began bringing drummers and other musicians with me to further demonstrate that all music counts, and purity is a matter of perspective, and intention. On the floor of a Tower Records in New Orleans I sampled the hand drumming of a heckler who was offended by my SP-1200 and wrote a riff and performed it right in front of him and made that very tough audience dance, and understand.

Ease and convenience, distraction and re performance have become the tools of today. This isn’t entirely bad, in that we have taken the post production tools and made stutters, and filtering an art in and of itself. There’s a lot of inspiration to be taken from the tools in our hands. But still my heart wasn’t satisfied. After September 2001 it became very difficult to travel with equipment. I tried, and each time I tried I was stopped, strip searched, delayed and missed flights, missed gigs, and it was pretty clear that something had to be done. So I took a closer look at digital techniques, and the world of computers. This allowed me to get where I was going without a TSA agent buggering me, but it wasn’t the same. It wasn’t as much fun. I set my efforts to mixing, and began traveling all over the world performing what I called a live/dj set. That meant I would mix mostly my own music, but also sing live, and add the songs I loved by my brothers and sisters and heroes. It’s been a great decade of proving that 110-120 beats per minute are revolutionary tempos, and force is more powerful than speed. I’ve almost always been able to find a place between what the audience expects and what I want to tell them and bring everyone together. Not that I’ve ever really been a main room thumper – I leave that to DJ Pumpy-Pants and people who are more concerned with things that are “big” and I’ve devoted myself to the disenfranchised, the lost, the lovers and the lonesome. I have always felt that the Larry Levan school of house music was the truth, and so I am no more shy about playing pure techno than I am about laying down a disco track. The truth is the truth, and when you’re in the mix, anything goes. It’s what I love most about house music – it’s practical application as opposed to it’s intention, it’s sedentary conventions, or rules. Because what happens in the moment, between the musician and the dancer can change everything instantly. That’s beautiful. That’s real. I love that.

About a year ago I was leaving San Francisco with much of my digital gear to head to Death Valley, Joshua tree and New Mexico to record, and complete work on my fourth solo album and take a quiet look at the pre production for the forthcoming Dubtribe album. Before I even got out of town my rental car was jacked. I was in the bank for 9 minutes and the window was smashed, and all my gear was gone. I lost it all. Fuck I was gutted. Totally ruined. People were so sweet, and so supportive and kind, but nothing could replace what I’d lost. All my records, personally digitized and then given away, all my music, works in progress, pre production, maters, everything… gone. In the quiet of my grief I took a moment and reflected. Nothing could really be this bad. So what did I want? Did I want to replace my computer, try to replace my music, to re construct what was already accomplished? No. So I asked myself “When were you last most happy? When were you last most productive as an artist?” and the answer was instant – when I was playing live and using physical devices.

Now it’s time to hit the road again. These are inspirational times. There has never been a better time to be an electronic musician. Little tiny devices from my wildest dreams are being manufactured in Detroit, Los Angeles, British Columbia, Pittsburgh, and all over the world – new and better ones are arriving every day. These little sound making boxes and modules are changing everything. And I’m really excited. So I’ve put a little rig together, and I’m packing it up and heading your way. I’m starting in San Francisco, my hometown, and performing my first 100% live electronic set in nearly a decade. I’m not going to play anything from my back catalog, so there is no Dubtribe revival in the set, I am instead going to stop at every modular boutique, every record store, and every gathering place I can find and set up, and start up a dialog with anyone and everyone who is interested in lighting ourselves on fire with live performance, electronic music, modular electronics, and modern synthesis and sequencing techniques. And in every city I get to , I will perform. I am available for DJ sets, live/dj sets along the way if it’s more appropriate, but the main event is this new, 100% live performance. The show is 2-3 hours long (or longer) and the idea is to take everyone on this adventure with me.

----------------------------------------------------------

The Mother Lovin' Honey Tongues:

Something mysterious happens when two similar objects moving in opposite directions collide. They morph, twist and tangle until they become something neither could have become on its own.

So it went with bands Red Haven and Dirty Grace, who collided and began performing as one group in the summer of 2015. After bringing Vancouver songstress Logan Thackray and lifelong creator/performer Aubrey Burke (raised in a full-time clown family) into the mix, the new ‘super band‘ consisted of 8 unique voices/songwriters forming a veritable choir.

The Mother Lovin’ Honey Tongues were born, as was a new distinct genre – ‘Swamp Opera‘ – that combines Americana roots grit and indie swing with soulful harmonies and beat-boxing. Crafting delicate folk arrangements and stomping dance numbers, the band embraces a wide palette – from accordion to saxophone to mandolin to mouth percussion – to express the ancient soul of the modern era. Whether it’s songs about shadows, earth magik, grimey handshakes or lovers old and new, this band of many faces will show you them all.

Excited to release their debut album “Live At Monarch Studios” in summer 2017, The Mother Lovin’ Honey Tongues have already begun confirming spots at summer festivals across B.C. and Alberta, including the Vancouver Island Music Fest (which draws 10,000 attendants annually). With 8 hearts bent towards celebration and 16 eyes on the open road, these Mother Lovers hope to share the Honey with you soon!

Fri. November 25th 2016  The Tourist Company, San Felix

The Tourist Company, San Felix @ Copper Owl Nov 25 2016 - Oct 20th @ Copper Owl
2100
$10 at the door only.
The Tourist Company has outright rejected the idea of being confined to the limits of one genre or sound. Chalk it up to living in Vancouver that this eclectic group feel far from settled. The group has toured multiple times across Canada, sharing the stage with several of Canada’s elite rock and alternative groups including We Are The City, Dear Rouge, and Fast Romantics, and garnered extensive radio airplay. “We truly feel as though we have had a wild first chapter as a band and are ready for the next musical mission”, said lead singer and songwriter Taylor Swindells.

Their next offering to the world? Apollo, the group’s long awaited debut LP.

In itself, the word Apollo can conjure up many images, the most obvious being the US space missions of the 1960’s and 70’s, which ultimately put man on the moon. In Greek and Roman mythology, Apollo was known as the god of music and poetry as well as one of healing and truth. The themes of idealism, skepticism, venturing into the unknown, and a longing for home, all bleed into The Tourist Company’s new music.

Opening the record is the achingly beautiful string and harp intro of “1957” leading into “Sputnik”, where The Tourist Company waste no time in making a musical impression by adding everything from bright piano plunks to tambourines, bass synths and trumpets, yet never once sounding lost in their musical landscape. The tune carries an urgency and directness, much like a spacecraft tearing away from Earth’s gravity towards a singular goal. This group isn’t shying away from the dramatic either, as evidenced by “Astronaut”, which features a heavy drop into pulsing bass and distorted Rhodes halfway through the track. As experimental as these approaches may be, elements of pop can be found scattered throughout, in songs such as “Sidelines” and title track “Apollo”. In the reflective piece “Mercury II”, keyboardist Jillian Levey carries the tune with a haunting, dream-like effortlessness, starkly contrasting lyrics like “hold your head above the water”. Those who are privy to the US space missions will know that the album closing song title is pulled from the last words spoken in the televised Apollo 8 mission broadcast.

This group has built their sound and identity around the concept that outer space is more than a vast, dark space. To the band, "outer space encompasses our ideas and questions about humanity, and one’s own journey and struggles."

Daniel Moir
http://www.danielmoir.com/

On tour in support of his recent release of the new album "Swing and Sway," Daniel Moir is a Canadian folk/rock songwriter who is wise beyond his years. He has played several festivals, worked with award winning producers and has toured with the Grapes of Wrath front man Kevin Kane. His songs have seen chart positions in college radio and placements on NBC. Millions of television viewers watched as Daniel performed at the CBC concert for Alberta Arts Days.

His sophomore release, Road, has been compared to Eddie Vedder, Rufus Wainwright and even The Beatles. An “alternative folk trip that takes the listener on a quasi-cinematic journey through the great Canadian landscape”, Road was produced by Juno-winning producer Russell Broom (Jan Arden, Emm Gryner, Sam Roberts), and was co-engineered by David Kean (Bjork, Audities Foundation).

Drawing from personal insight and life experience, Daniel is a "gifted instrumentalist" with an honest talent for songwriting.

Zoubi Arros (solo)
http://zoubiarros.com/videos

Zoubi Arros grew up exploring the serene forests of Hornby
Island, Canada. Written from the heart, her songs are sung
with vocal tonality akin to a 1920‘s torch singer. This coined
the term, “Torch Pop” to describe Zoubi’s folky genre. Feist
and The Alabama Shakes are examples of artists who inspire
Zoubi's melodies. She grew up listening to Leonard Cohen,
No Doubt and the Beatles. In 2010, Zoubi performed at
Rifflandia Festival. She also performed for the Grand Opening
of the Victoria Public Market in 2013. This summer, Zoubi
released her new EP and successfully spread it across
Canada on tour with Devarrow. She wrapped up the tour with
a performance at Ukee Friday Night Market

Tanyss Nixi http://www.tanyssnixi.com

Tanyss Nixi is a Roots Alt-Country Artist from Edmonton, AB
Tanyss Nixi draws from classic country & rockabilly influences (Kitty Wells, Hank Sr., Carl Perkins, Wanda Jackson) and modern alt-country greats (Gillian Welch, Richard Buckner, Jason Isbell) to make her own original, world-wise but never weary songs.
Tanyss has released 2 albums and played across Canada at festivals and showcases such as NXNE, WCMA, Much Music Unplugged to name a few. Her second album was supported by Rawlco Radio, and received shiny reviews from !Exclaim and Chart Attack. She is very excited to be recording a new album with the band this winter, set for release in 2017.

Doyle has played lounges, clubs and festivals all over B. C. including The Commodore Ballroom and The Tall Tree Festival 6 years in a row. In that time he’s shared the stage with international heavyweights Aphrodite, Funkanomics, Serial Killaz, Slynk, Netsky, Camo & Krooked and Andy C, not to mention many of the west coast’s finest.

Doors: 8pm
Music: 9pm

ABOUT:
Major Funk and the Employment is a hard working group of dedicated musicians whose collective ambition is to deliver high quality danceables to the people. Founded in Whitehorse in 2014 by bassist and bandleader Etienne Girard, the band mixes a strong and steadfast rhythm section with a colourful collection of guitars, horns, keyboards, and passionate vocals. Major Funk’s big and unique sound has gotten crowds grooving at some of the Yukon’s biggest events, creating a vibrant and rambunctious party atmosphere at every step along the way. What’s Up Yukon has characterized Major Funk as “quirky but really smooth". CBC Yukon hosted the band for an interview and live performance in both 2014 and 2016. In early 2016 the band recorded a live album and video entitled “Hot Off The Floor” to capture their live energy and showcase their eclectic style and musicianship. Gig by gig, Major Funk and the Employment continue to bring their tight, bass-driven tunes to enthusiastic audiences far and wide. http://www.majorfunkandtheemployment.com

Victoria favourites Old Girl and Cleopatra and the Nile are joined by Calgarian Hello Moth for a Sunday night of vibes, verve and voltage.

Doors at 8:00pm
$10 cover

Anchor Hill's listing on the Shambhala Music Festival website calls him "a unique blend of phat, broken mid-tempo beats, flowing melodies, glitchy edits and organic samples. Each composition is unique. His eclectic styles range from Eastern-infused downtempo and detailed IDM to psychedelic crunk and epic orchestral glitch-hop."

Hello Moth, as described by Sled Island: "Expressive keyboards stretch into filmic expanses that wouldn’t be out of place in an art-house score. Sombre ambient-tinged synth trails and hollow, sorrowful wails let you be what the shadows ask you."

Cleopatra and the Nile, as described by Weird Canada:
"Paul Pedrosa plays synths, bass, drum machines and always drives rad cars. Sarah Murphy plays the theremin all calm and cool with amazing technique. Together they make music that’s refreshingly organic in a genre that’s moved so heavily towards laptops and all that man or machine shit. Dang-a-lang do they got style. Shades of hip-hop, science fiction, ambient noise, dated futures, Giallo, alien funk, neon lit diners, and every imaginary film playing inside yer head."

Brent Oliver presents:

New Occupation Tour 2016

Duotang
https://duotangband.bandcamp.com/ http://www.duotangband.com
Duotang is Rod Slaughter (bass) and Sean Allum (drums).

Formed in the summer of 1995, the 2-piece band's mix of mod-rock and post-punk garnered critical attention, and in March, 1996, signed to famed Vancouver independent record label Mint Records. Over the next 5 years, Duotang released three albums: Smash the Ships and Raise the Beams (1996), The Cons and the Pros (1998), and The Bright Side in 2001. All three topped the college radio charts in Canada and allowed Duotang to tour extensively across Canada, United States, and Europe. They shared the stage across Canada with The English Beat, landed the cover of Exclaim magazine and in 2002, won the Prairie Music Award for Best Video for 2001s The Evidence Comes From All Directions.

The duo decided to take a hiatus in 2002 - one that wound up lasting 12 years. In December 2014, at the request of Mint Records, they reunited for a show in Vancouver, and followed it up with a sold-out Winnipeg show. With a renewed vigor, and crop of new songs, the duo went on to play the Winnipeg Jazz Festival, Calgary’s Sled Island and Edmonton's UP&DT Festival.

And now, 15 years after their last release comes Duotang's newest album New Occupation, releasing October 14, 2016 on Montreal's Stomp records. Opening with a tongue in cheek ode to the reunion, "Nostalgia's a Vice" the 12 track album is the group's best material to date. Other notable tracks include the sing-along "Karma Needs to Come Around", the rocking "Bastard Five" and the mod-influenced "A Suitable Distraction". Yes, it appears Duotang are not only back, but better than ever.

$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 no doubt be one of the country's most inventive voices for years to come.

Scars & Scarves
https://scarsandscarves.bandcamp.com/
Formed with the desire to write and perform music that distills their various influences, Scars & Scarves is minimalism as maximalism. Yet the attention to sonic detail is all encompassing as well. Drones, tremolos, distortion, phasing and feedback are essential ingredients to the Scars & Scarves sound. The concept of beautiful chaos and sublimeness within noise is paramount.

http://stevenlambke.com/
Between 2006 and 2015 Steven Lambke wrote and performed as Baby Eagle, releasing the albums Baby Eagle (2006 Outside Music), No Blues (2007 Outside Music), Dog Weather (2010 You’ve Changed Records), and Bone Soldiers (2012 You’ve Changed Records). He has performed at readings, concerts, events and festivals across Canada, including tours with Ladyhawk (2012), Julie Doiron (2007), and Christine Fellows (2007), and appearances at POP Montreal, Halifax Pop Explosion, CMW, NXNE, Sappyfest (Sackville, NB), Lawnya Vawnya (St. John’s, NL), In The Dead of Winter (Halifax, NS), and The Summer’s End Folk Festival (Grand Manan, NB). A new album, Days Of Heaven, will be released in October 2015. It is his first album released under his own name.

Shuyler Jansen ( Old Reliable/ Big White Cloud Records)
https://shuylerjansen.bandcamp.com/
"Shuyler Jansen melds his disparate influences into a cohesive whole, treading unlikely common ground in the sounds of modern Americana, Kraftwerk synth, fuzz bomb psych-rock, and lush Pet Sounds arrangement and vocal harmony." BEATROUTE

Forest Tate (Calgary, AB)
https://foresttate.bandcamp.com/
What people don’t say about rolling stones, is that though they gather no moss, they also bloom late, and have excellent bullshit detectors. Forest Tate is at the peak of his reflective and rhetorical powers, giving strength and focus during an uncharacteristically extended perch in the past half-decade. Crafting and debuting a new batch of songs about a complicated relationship with the past, and an optimistic ambiguity toward the future, Tate is emerging from the woodshed again to shake off his moss.

"But most endemic to her artistry is her ability to capture a moment in time and bring you inside – her songs are simultaneously visceral and ethereal and as comfortable with chaos as they are silence."

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 Dies”) and beautifully layered pop songs (“Another You”). You & Everyone is a bold step forward for Boreal Sons and marks a confident new chapter in their career.

Layten Kramer:
In October of 2014, Kramer released his experimental-folk EP, which featured the acclaimed song “Sea of Glass.” The final production of the project was made possible by an incredibly successful crowd-funding campaign through Indiegogo. Shortly thereafter he embarked on a two-month tour, playing over 20 shows across British Columbia, Alberta, and Saskatchewan alongside talented Canadian musicians including Michael Bernard Fitzgerald, Danny Olliver, and Jasper Sloan Yip. Both his EP and the tour have been well received and continue to garner acclaim within the Canadian music sphere, including The JUNO Awards, Ride The Tempo, and Digital Journal.

Kramer is currently tracking his first full-length release under his own name with band mates Kheroufi on bass and synth and Ellinger on drums. They are collaborating with JUNO Award Winning Producer Colin Stewart (Dan Mangan, Yukon Blonde), alongside the music styling of Kathryn Calder of The New Pornographers, Hannah Epperson (Peak Performance Alumni) and Geoff Hillhorst of The Deep Dark Woods. For the Sun embodies a change in direction, taking Kramer’s recognized folk sound and adding experimental song structure and lush soundscapes, all the while maintaining relatable lyrics and catchy, clever hooks.

Kirsten Ludwig:
With a soft demeanor and heavy mind, Kirsten Ludwig achieves simultaneous vulnerability, strength, grace, and madness. Ludwig continues to blaze a fierce path much like the wildly creative and independent female artists she is noted to look to.

Arrington de Dionysio (Old Time Relijun, Malaikat dan Singa)
https://arrington.bandcamp.com/ http://www.youtube.com/arringtondedionyso

An uncompromising voice in contemporary music, Arrington de Dionyso integrates ancient soundmaking techniques with trans-modernist inquiries into the nature of consciousness. 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.

While deeply rooted in the punk inclination to tear down musical standards in an effort for liberation, Arrington's music weds its no-wave iconoclasm with the spiritual searching of Ayler era free jazz to reach towards an unveiling of primordially potent universalities. His compositions embrace sounds as colors, placing emphasis on the complimentary spectrums- from circular overtones whispered through bamboo flutes to the penetrating deep and guttural howls of amplified throatsinging- all with the lungs of an athlete.

Founder of the Olympia-based Old Time Relijun in 1995 and the trance-punk "a la javanaise" ensemble Malaikat dan Singa in 2009, Arrington has toured extensively and maintains ongoing fruitful collaborations with musicians throughout Europe, North America, Japan, and Indonesia. No matter the continent, he seeks innovative approaches to improvisation both intuitive and indigenous. In 2015 he completed a film "Reak: Trance Music and Possession in West Java" documenting a ground breaking collaboration in which Arrington performs on the bass clarinet with the participants of a trance possession ceremony in Sunda, Indonesia.

In August/September of 2016, Arrington de Dionyso will be the Sound Artist in Residence at Brooklyn's Pioneer Works, where his projects will include research on woodwind mouthpieces better suited to microtonality and a very special collaboration with SENYAWA from Yogyakarta, Indonesia.

Whether as a band leader or solo performer Arrington's music evokes an "Ancient Future", sometimes shocking and hallucinatory, always aiming to channel Spirit.

Katsura Yamauchi (sax)
http://salmosax.com/

Katsura Yamauchi picked up his first saxophone in the early 1970s and was quickly drawn to modern jazz, avant-garde and free improvisation. Born in Beppu, far from the traditional creative centers around the bigger cities in Japan, Yamauchi was until recently relatively unknown, but has now shown himself to be one of the most unique musicians in Japan.

For years Katsura Yamauchi was sporadically active as both musician and concert organizer, and helped arrange performances in Japan for veteran musicians from both the USA and Europe, such as Derek Bailey, Han Bennink and Milford Graves.
Not until 2002 did he quit his regular job to dedicate himself fully to music. Yamauchi was influenced by the new experimental sounds coming from Tokyo, but had developed his own original style, mixing improvisation and minimalism with melodic elements. The music is at the same time challenging and easily accessible, unrecognizable and beautiful.

Katsura Yamauchi has released several solo CDs and recorded with Michel Doneda, Gunter Müller and Norbert Möslang from Voice Crack and performed with Taku Unami, I.S.O., Misha Mengelberg, Tatsuya Nakatani, Sharif Sehnaoui, Jason Kahn, Otomo Yoshihide, sachiko M, Barre Phillips, Kim Dae-Hwan, Gino Robair, Toshinori Kondo, Yoshimitsu Ichiraku, Travassos, Toshimaru Nakamura, Seijiro Murayama, Han Bennink and many others.

In addition to extensive activity in Japan, Katsura Yamauchi has toured the USA and several times in Europe. He has performed at the following festivals: Musique Innovatrices 2005, Castello Canalis 2007, Ftarri Festival 2008, Amplify Festival 2008, Beppu Contemporary Art Festival 2009, Asian Meeting Festival 2009, Ftarri Doubtmusic festival 2010, Yokohama Improvisation Festival 2010 and Nuit Bleue festival 2010, BACK TO THE TREES 2011 etc.

"Katsura Yamauchi is really both a new and a veteran artist... I am greatly refreshed by his energetic and confident performance."

- Otomo Yoshihide, July 2003

A letter Of Recommendation for " SALMO SAX "   
(by Yoshihide Otomo)

Katsura, Suddenly Coming to Europe and Unexpectedly Talking Part in My Stage in Belgium and Being Applauded by All the Audience ! What a Surprise ! It was on that occasion when I realized for the first time that he was far from a naive and middle-aged musician. We should not be deceived by his appearance of fishing a stream. Katsura Yamauchi, who lives in Oita, has sent me a CD. Being an office-worker for over 20 years, he is a 48 years-old saxophonist, and has enjoyed composing unique music of his own without belonging to any music circles. Last autumn suddenly, he quitted his job. Though he is already known to us as a highly competent musician, he has lived his own life far and different from a city life. He takes no practical needs whatever into his account. To be true, I was much worried about his decision. He came abroad without regard to my worry, after giving several live performances in Tokyo. He is the musician living in such a regional city as Oita who has challenges an mprovised music of the world with his sharply critical mind. He is really both a new and a veteran artist who takes a detached view of the distance between his music and the actual world. Only two months later, he released his first CD album of a perfect sax solo. I am certain that he recorded them just after returning to Oita in Japan. I am greatly refreshed by his energetic and confident performance. In the present situation of music, a free improvisation music seems to have established its various standard forms. But I'd like to emphasize strongly that Yamauchi stands a loof from such a tendency.
