Fri. July 12th 2019  Blackwood Kings, Sweet Leaf

Blackwood Kings, Sweet Leaf @ Copper Owl Jul 12 2019 - Jul 16th @ Copper Owl
2100
$12 at the door only.
A co-headlining play from two Victoria acts fresh off appearances at the Victoria Ska & Reggae Fest!

Blackwood Kings

Blackwood Kings are quickly becoming one of the most exciting reggae groups in western Canada, blending dubbed-out grooves, punk attitude, and prog weirdness in a way that is uniquely their own. The group's varied and malleable style has allowed them to share the stage with notable acts such as Authority Zero, J-Boog, The Slackers, The Mad Caddies, The Skints, Gondwana, Grimskunk, and Third World.

The group has appeared at festivals such as Rifflandia, Victoria Ska & Reggae Fest and Fernfest, while also lending their performances to social and political events such as the University of Victoria "Earth Fest" with speakers such as the Green Party's Elizabeth May, and a fundraiser for building a hospital in Sierra Leone alongside acclaimed reggae/highlife group Sierra Leone's Refugee All-Stars.

SweetLeaf

“Everyone in the band is a comedian and we all like to laugh,” says guitarist/vocalist Chris Jones of his band SweetLeaf, a Victoria group whose demented fusion of reggae, ska, funk, and punk has been blowing roofs off of Western Canadian venues for the last half-decade. “The most important thing is that SweetLeaf has to be fun. At the same time, it's a slippery slope; our practices look can like a party with instruments most nights.”

Despite the loose humour, the six-piece’s work-ethic is no joke. SweetLeaf has completed several BC tours, released two full-length LPs, and graced festival stages at events such as Rifflandia, Legends Valley, and the Victoria Ska and Reggae Fest. It’s the band’s 2016 BC tour that Jones says granted them a new confidence. “For a few dates we were asked to play three sets, so we really had to beef up our repertoire,” says Jones of the trek. “One of the side effects of playing that long of a show was the realization that we can hold people's attention and get them grooving literally all night.”

Tickies are $12 at the door
Doors at 9:00

Their sophomore release, Second Nature, is out April 2019 on So Sorry Records.

She has recorded with John Korsrud’s Hard Rubber Orchestra and has also toured with Hugh Fraser’s band VEJI. Monik plays alto and soprano saxophone and occasionally sings with her ensembles.
“…facile in her execution and fluid in the spinning out of her melodic ideas.”
— Rick Helzer, Jazz Improv Magazine

"…soaring, dynamic solos…” — PQB News
Now leading “The Monik Nordine Quartet”, Monik and her group are featuring the compositions of Canadian jazz artists such as Oscar Peterson, Joni Mitchell, KD Lang, Sonny Greenwich, Jan Jarczyk, Kenny Wheeler, Hugh Fraser, Alan Matheson, Greg Bush and of course their own works in a project called “The Great Canadian Songbook”.

FEVER FEEL w/ Montréal's LEMONGRAB and the lovely ORA COGAN

LEMONGRAB
"Attache ta tuque!" These girls kicked off the band with a punk vision and a raw sound that never left. Inspired by bands such as Delta-5, Lemongrab is bringing back a lo-fi sound and energy. Now with five members, you can expect post-punk and psych qualities to their sound. It’s groovy and sometimes scary, it’s a caress followed with slap making you want more.
• lemon-grab.bandcamp.com •

FEVER FEEL
Hailing from Victoria BC, Fever Feel is an oblique classé rock and roll group whose music stylings are informed by early psychedelic rock, vintage country music, laid back greenwich village folk sounds and a touch of poetic mysticism. Formed in 2014 by brothers Landon Franklin and Logan Gabert in Calgary AB, the band took to touring throughout North America in their early days. Writing and recording on off times in between brought forth the bands first offering, a self-titled LP released September 2018. Since then, the band has begun releasing a new series of odds and ends singles entitled ‘The Less Precious Collection’.

Thu. June 13th 2019  Freak Heat Waves, Psychic Pollution, Dead Malls, Redress

Freak Heat Waves, Psychic Pollution, Dead Malls, Redress @ Copper Owl Jun 13 2019 - Jul 16th @ Copper Owl
8:00 PM
It's the return of the FREAKS!

Freak Heat Waves
BC: https://freakheatwaves.bandcamp.com/

While Freak Heat Waves’ core duo of Lind and Thomas DiNinno have primarily operated from the coastal community of Victoria, B.C., they originally formed in Medicine Hat, Alberta and have now made their most recent relocation to Montreal. Throughout extensive tours of North America, various line-ups of the group have included Cindy Lee/Women’s Patrick Flegel, Fountain’s Evan Jeffery, and Kyle Sherrill of Atlanta art-rockers Red Sea.

Freak Heat Waves’ 2012 debut was recorded with the late Chris Reimer (Women and The Dodos), while their celebrated sophomore LP Bonnie’s State of Mind saw a co-producer credit from Scott Munro (Preoccupations). On Beyond XXXL, Lind and DiNinno hunkered down to self-produce the album almost entirely independently. This process began in the studio facilities of Portland Community College, where electronic percussion expert Shawn Trail assisted with engineering the guitar, bass, and drum machines providing its foundation. Over the next nine months, the duo gave birth to their extraterrestrial baby, painstakingly shaping each sound in a pair of home studios.

Beyond XXXL matches the artifice of its alien pop with lyrics describing chameleonic performers sinking into their self-created costumes. Lind introduces this intention on opener “Self Vortex” as he intones “it ain't an escape / I want a way to transform tonight.” The slowly swirling “Bad Mutation” brings a more cynical view, as he describes “an ugly subculture” with “more banter for the audience” from someone “so realistic your sanity twisted.” Lind lets his guard down on the glittering romance of “Soothing Limbo”, but by “I Can’t Tell” it’s no longer possible to recognize a loved one who has begun to “simulate the taste and the smell.”

“Sell A Line” imagines early Roxy Music with Brian Eno’s sputtering synths pushed to the forefront and cultural critiques that could be set in any era: “Transformation of a western nation / Fake exorcism for the sake of religion / And televise the whole ordeal.” On “Subliminal Appeal”, the artist has become a politician: a “belligerent ex-showman / delivering programmed slogan.” Their tragic metamorphosis is completed on closer “In The Dip Of The Night,” as Lind reveals his revulsion to the “prima donna of subversive sound” spreading smoke and media hoaxes until the “spotlight shines and then spits you out.” Yet could it have been himself all along?

Before melting into thin air, Freak Heat Waves unleash the most striking musical moment on Beyond XXXL, which could point to their next transformation. The brain-battering blitzkrieg of “Toxic Talk Show” may sound completely drum machine driven, yet Lind explains that this self-described “grotesque freak-out rave” reached its apex with the band’s original mode of instrumentation.

“We wanted the album to have more intensity and insanity with an over the top dance number,” says Lind. “That one started with Thomas writing the synth line and the beat on the drum machine. We liked it but weren’t sure how to bring up the energy level, and funnily enough it became one of the only songs that uses a full drum kit. For the rest of the record we were trying to dial things back, but that’s the one song where we got free. We exorcised our demons right before the album ends.”


Psychic Pollution II Victoria II
BC: https://psychicpollution.bandcamp.com/

There’s a cold neu future brewing and its nostalgic gurgles can be heard in the records of the increasingly prolific Psychic Pollution. Psych heavy and Kraut in scope with sporadic kosmiche sampling that fits somewhere in the Berlin School of electronic music. Noisy at times, but heavy in ambiance and minimalism.

IILL PHIL: West Coast Jackin' Farewell Tour

June 7th @ Copper Owl in Victoria with Special Guests: Average Gypsy and Phi-Rex


ILL PHIL, aka Phil Dolman has been DJ'ing for almost 15 years now, having played all over the world Phil is no stranger to the business. In early 2019 Phil announced his retirement from making music to pursue other ventures and spend more time with his family. An end to an unforgettable era of legendary house music and thousands of his fans are sad to see him go. But, also excited to see his final sets! Phil wants to go out with a BANG!

This is going to be Phil's last set ever in Victoria... expect a high energy set, packed full of exclusive
material! This is one you don't want to miss!

He has been part of a few other projects prior to this, he worked with the super producer Will Bailey AKA Lowsteppa for 3 years. Together they gave you 'Bass Weazal' & 'Punk Rolla' These projects saw Phil tour the States, and see most of Europe and even go as far as South Korea.

Radio 1 and Capital FM, KISS FM & many more have supported a lot of his productions, and continue to do so.

Phil also hosts a show called ‘The Friday Night Takeover’ on Locked In Radio via Facebook Live. This is a weekly show that goes out all over the world, and reaches a vast amount of listeners, around 30’000 a week.

Recently Phil has decided to stay his hand at the more bassy sounding music currently known as 'House & Bass' or 'Jackin House' With over 100 solid tunes to his name, he is a driving force in the UK scene playing all over the country every week.

Phil joined the prestigious 'Certified Jackin' brand. He now does 6 mixtapes a year which achieve huge listenership's, exceeding well into the 100's of thousands of views & downloads. He also runs parties at the famous ‘Lightbox’ Club in London with ‘Certified Jackin’ which have been a huge success.

“Purveyors of sexy, wobbly basslines, gangster rap and boundless spirited energy”

Vancouver based DJ/Production couple, Josh & Dani, describe themselves as “Spiritual Gangtsas,” which not only pronounces the yin and yang of their individual journeys, but also their mixed spectrum of musical influence. Whether it’s house, hip hop, speed garage, trap or UK inspired basslines, their production and live DJ sets are always characterized by a high-energy, multi-genre blend of deep, wobbly, rolling basslines and four to the floor, bouncy beats.

Built on a solid foundation of local support, Average Gypsy have earned a reputation always delivering a top-notch performance. Known for their captivating stage presence, quick mixes and ability to flow through a wide range of selections, which are always cutting edge, never predictable and always dance-worthy. They’ve played numerous shows and festivals within Canada, such as Astral Harvest Music Festival (AB) and Motion Notion Music Festival (BC), and are starting to gain the attention of a global audience, playing festivals such as Genius Loci (Baja, Mexico) and One Love Fest (California, US). Recently, Average Gypsy have played several shows in the Southern California region and have toured in the US, Spain and Mexico.

Average Gypsy hustles. Their tireless work ethic, dedication to continuous improvement and to honing their sound is reflected not only in their live performances, but also in their production. Their last three releases through Sheppard Records have all charted on Beatport and Hypeddit. Their debut EP, “On Yo Block!” reached #1 in Future House Releases and #30 of all releases on Beatport. Their most recent EP, "Get Some Money" reached #1 in Bass House Releases on Beatport and still remains in the charts today. Josh & Dani are currently working on their debut album, which is 7-track story album. Each track representing a pivotal moment in their journey together thus far.

Spend some time with Average Gypsy and you'll quickly lean that they operate out of pure love and integrity. They have recently co-founded The Rise & Shine FamJam Fundraiser, a festival that donates 100% of the proceeds to charity. The love and passion Average Gypsy have for their craft and for each other is undeniable and transcends everything they do!

//

Black Marble | Brooklyn, NY
BC: https://blackmarble.bandcamp.com/
TW: https://twitter.com/blackmarblenyc

Black Marble formed in 2012 as an artistic extension of Chris Stewarts collection of songs and ideas. The name Black Marble took some time to arrive upon and is more than fitting. As a literal description of a material used to sculpt and build, its the fleeting notion of a one-time symbol of taste and affluence, frozen in a moment, slightly dusty and showing every smudge and mark. Started in a recording space in Bushwick, NY, Black Marble made their first EP, Weight Against the Door (Hardly Art) followed quickly by their chillingly moody and atmospheric debut full-length, A Different Arrangement(Hardly Art).

With both early releases the band followed a familiar path stomped down by synth wave pioneers whose hand assembled sounds and DIY ethics paved the way for likeminded artists. While taking inspiration from late 70’s and early 80’s projects like Silicon Teens, Iron Curtain, Lives of Angels, and Solid Space, Black Marble dialed in on a clear understanding of its own specific sound. After the release of A Different Arrangement in the fall of 2012 there was an almost immediate clamoring from fans for a new album but they were made to wait several years, for good reason. With the end of the East Coast chapter of Stewart’s life on the horizon, Its Immaterial was recorded in a period of mental and physical transition. Trapped between spaces and unable to move on until the snow globe flurry of ideas floating around him settled just right.

On September 30, 2016 Black Marble will release their second full-length, Its Immaterial, on Ghostly, and from a new locale, the West Coast. Still featuring Stewart at the helm along with select collaborators as supplementation, the bi-coastal shift lends a great deal to the overall feel of the new album. The light and dark elements of shadows. The salt and sting of evenings high tide sea spray. A beautiful thing left on a shelf too high to maintain. The general mood is that of creating something new, but going back in time to do it. Like attempting to flesh out a song that you woke up humming but cant find, because it doesnt exist yet.

//
Froth | Los Angeles, CA
BC: https://froth.bandcamp.com/
INSTA: https://www.instagram.com/frothband/

Froth is a band formed in 2012 in Los Angeles, CA, by four friends who had never played in bands before. They released two albums in 2014 and 2015 before signing to Wichita Recordings in 2017 and releasing Outside (briefly).

Across the ten songs, the band dialed back the noise and psych-pop found on their previous LPs to reveal delicately beautiful melodies, intricately arranged instrumentals, and some of their most experimental song writing to date. This evolution revealed new dynamics of Froth’s sound, resulting in a moodier and more atmospheric bend to their shoegazing melodicism and pop sensibilities, mixing the driving, tuneful drone of first single “Contact” alongside the epic squall of the intertwining guitars on “Passing Thing” and the more spare, meditative landscape of “Show A Flower A Candle And It Grows.”

Following the release the band toured extensively in the US and Europe, including dates supporting RIDE and Interpol. The band is set to release their fourth studio album Duress on Wichita Recordings in spring 2019.

You’re invited to Tropic Harbour, a utopian space constructed by Mark Berg for peace of mind. These bedroom pops are unabashedly dreamy. Mashed earworms and mint infused hooks blend with swooning guitar knits. The result: a levitating tincture!, a distillation of a pop pantheon that runs the course from Youth Lagoon and Wild Nothing all the way to Cocteau Twins and The Smiths.

Lakelse
https://lakelse.bandcamp.com/releases
https://www.lakelse.com/

Lakelse (pronounced lake-else) is an independent and alternative rock band based out of Victoria, BC. Formed in late 2014 by singer/guitarist Nash Park, bassist Sam Dunn, guitarist Graham Schibli, keyboardist Caitlyn Norman-Kovalick and percussionist Cam Harper. Hoping to incite self-reflection and a collective celebration Lakelse’s sound uses a combination of heavy, slow moving guitar riffs layered with grandiose synthesizer, and honest, soaring lyrics. Intending to blend dramatic intimacy with explosive dynamics Lakelse’s sound puts the listener in a place of both comfort and unease. These intentions are ever present in their first official release, The Prospect of the Dream EP.

Lakelse is currently focused on writing their first full length studio album. Using the lessons learned from writing and recording The Prospect of the Dream EP Lakelse’s newest venture is one they can’t wait to share.

Island Eyes

http://islandeyesband.com/

Island Eyes is Victoria, BC's Derek Janzen. Formerly working under the name Wand, he recently felt the need
to change the name due to confusion involving another band with the same name. Derek has been quietly recording and releasing homemade alternative music from his home since 2008 and has been operating out of Victoria, BC for nearly five years. Over the years he's played with some great acts, including Mount Eerie, Frog Eyes, Blackout Beach, Cousins, and Chet.

~~ The Gnar Magic Tour ~~

As you’re reading this there’s a rental 8’ softtop likely being pounded into the Tofino sand bearing the name “Gnarfunkel”. Have you ever seen this board? Probably not. Have you heard of the band that named itself after this board? Probably not. But they’re returning to the island to attempt to surf and figured they might as well play a show in Victoria on the way. Its called The Gnar Magic Tour as they’re bringing their good buds Bad Magic. They'll be joined by bedroom pop star Yung Heazy fresh off a far-reaching world tour. Starting off the night will be local darling Lindsay Dixon of Flawed Hearts and the Waiting Room. Come down for a night filled with rock and roll, bad magic and songs about the ocean.

Advance $8 // Door $10
Doors 8 // Music 9

Gnarfunkel (Vancouver) ~ http://www.instagram.com/gnarfunkelband
Gnarfunkel ~ west coast rock and roll that’s gnarly to a funky extreme. This rowdy band features two animalistic lead singer/guitarists along with a tight, funky rhythm section. They’re known for their wild shows and eclectic music that features dope harmonies, rad riffs, spacey interludes and groves you just can’t help but dance to.

Yung Heazy (Vancouver) ~ http://www.instagram.com/yung_heazy/
A bedroom pop star born overnight online after his first releases racked up millions of streams, Yung Heazy aka Jordan Heaney released his highly anticipated debut LP “Whenever You’re Around I Hate Everything Less” on June 1st 2018 and has been on the road non stop in North America, Europe, Mexico and Asia since.
Drawing comparisons to acts like Mac Demarco, The Beatles and the current wave of lofi pop acts Yung Heazy’s music melds psych and pop with endearing lyricism and harmonies.

Bad Magic (Vancouver) ~ http://www.instagram.com/badmagicmusic
Armed with an engaging high energy live show and intricate, thoughtfully crafted songs - Bad Magic not only wants to get you moving to the rhythm but leave you with a lingering feeling that you were in the right place at the right time. With absolutely nothing to hide and plenty to show for their time together, they wear their tricks on their sleeves and aim to please based on the simple fact that there is magic in the moment and it’s up to all of us to capture it.

Lindsay Dixon Britton (Victoria) ~ http://www.instagram.com/flawedlindsay

More about Alex Joy:

https://soundcloud.com/dj-alex-joy

At the age of 14 Alex Joy traded in his violin for a set of turntables. By age 16 he was playing the biggest stadium parties in his hometown of Victoria B.C., booked on the bill with the likes of Sasha, John Digweed, Kevin Saunderson, and Yuan Atkins. After leaving his hometown he played internationally at Black Rock City U.S. (Robot Heart), Tokyo, Kyoto, Bali , Jakarta , Sydney ,Melbourne, Seoul ,Florianopolis Brazil , Hong Kong , Sao Paulo, and Berlin. The Heist, an experimental art film produced during his time at the Art Institute won several awards for music and cinematography. Subsequently he has been released on Renee Foster’s RF music label on the Entrowerk compilations part one and two with the tracks Love Addict and Bomp and Wakyo records with the single Pie. Alex was a regular at the Sound Wave Music Festival, held annually at Mussel Beach in B.C. Canada, where he played on the bill with Doc Martin, Dirt Crew, Thug Fucker and Matt Jonson to name but a few. His deep driving house sets have soul and a psychedelic edge. From festivals to after hours clubs, Alex is consistently being asked to play alongside some of the best in the game from Kenny Glasgow to Spirit Catcher, Rampue and Nick Warren to the Gorillas, with many in between. Currently based between Bali and Vancouver Island he is an avid explorer and defender of the Rainforests. He spends time deep in the rain forests of Southeast Asia capturing sound clips of the creatures and tiny gnomes that reside there. They give him the magic elements that infuse his music with exotic textures and led to the creation of the Rainforest Pavilion which starting at Wonderfruit Festival Thailand is growing into a movement harness the power of electronic music and festival culture to fund the protection of rainforests worldwide. With 18 years behind the decks, an everlasting adoration of music and a dynamic connection with the crowd that is in front of him, he continues to play with love, joy and an excitement that only expands through time.

Over years of dedicated persistence and the raw need to push the boundaries of dance music and sound culture forward, Bullet Bill always delivers really good forward thinking music to the masses. Whether through his live mixing, scratching, mcing or production he is all about striving to be the best in what he does, true thru versatility and leaving all dance floors encountered in sheer mayhem. With 20 years of solid dj experience, he is regularly seen performing at premiere sound venues across Vancouver, BC and Canada billed among some of the biggest artists on the globe.

CALICO - (DJ Bias) Gunfinger Radio - Vancouver
https://soundcloud.com/calicobass
https://mixcloud.com/calicobass

Calico (formerly Dj Bias) has been a Dj in Vancouver since 1999 when he purchased his first set of turntables after listening to skratch djs, quickly tho he was introduced to Drum n'Bass music and fell in love with mixing. Things then really started heating up for when he started a weekly Drum n’Bass night at The Met called ‘Fixed Fridays’ which went on for 4 years in Vancouver. At the same time Bias also was part of a weekly Drum n’Bass radio show on local UBC radio CiTr 101.9 fm called ‘Shadow Jugglers’ with fellow Jungalist rudegal ‘MP’. He has had the honour to open for artists such as Chase & Status, Nosia, Subfocus, Pendulum, Dj Hype, Dj Fresh, Kenny Ken, Marcus Visionary, Nicky Blackmarket, Remarc, Dj Zinc, Rusko, Djunya, Luke Envoy, Babylon System, Deaga Sound, and Danny Byrd just to name a few and played all across Canada and into the US all the way to Scotland UK. When Dubstep and bass music was starting to come into the scene in the late 2000s Bias was also a strong supporter playing the odd dubstep track at Fixed Fridays before also fully embracing that sound and throwing Dubstep as well as Drum n’Bass parties and doing a radio show on Dubstep.fm. If you’ve seen Bias play then you know he doesn’t mess around and always pushes the technical limits of Dj-ing as well as having deep selections of music. Fast forward to 2018 and now he is going by the name Calico and he is going strong with a radio show every second friday 8pm-10pm on Sub.fm. Calico plays and loves a large variety of music from Dubstep, Grime, Trap, Bassline, and general rudebwoy bass vibes but will always be a strong supporter and advocate for his first love Drum n’Bass and Jungle music.

______________________
Born and raised in Lethbridge, AB, Ty Vanden Dool has been recording and performing his personal style of synthpop since his studies in the University of Lethbridge's Digital Audio Arts program, blending elements of past new wave favourites like Depeche Mode and Tears for Fears with those of recent electronic bands like CHVRCHES and M83. Besides an appearance at Reign Bough Fiddle near Smoky Lake, AB, Vanden Dool has played numerous local shows, sharing the stage with artists like Fox Who Slept the Day Away, Hello Moth, Kane Incognito, King of Foxes and Too Soon Monsoon.
After amassing a large collection of original recordings (one collection of which has made electronic chart appearances on community radio stations in Edmonton, Kamloops and the top 30 here in Victoria), Vanden Dool has collected some of his best work into a self-titled debut album. Rife with personal themes of loneliness, unrequited love and unfulfilled desires, it's sure to be one of the most upbeat downers of 2019.

“I’m constantly seeking new ways to get musical, but something
always leads back to house. Maybe it’s because of the connection to the dance floor or the friendships that have been made along the
way,” says Atnarko. This attitude, combined with a dedication to his
craft and a creative drive to consistently try new things and push
boundaries, guarantees that Atnarko will continue to be a name on the rise and an important, notable figure in dance music for years to come.

********

NESS-T

DJ Ness-T favors deep bass lines and rocking girl vocals. From smooth deep house to trap bangers and everything in between. Always leaning towards to darker, bad ass, lip-biting-sexiness of electronica.
Music has always been the driving force behind her creativity, her best friend on rough days, and ever present soundtrack to life. Ness-T believes all genres have their place and time, and there is no need to limit yourself to only one. Ness-T strives to incorporate the best of each category with each individual situation, while creatively blending it all together with a sprinkling of high energy live drumming on top.

Here are links to some of my mixes:

DJ Marlee

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 following, but 20 years later, Marlee is rediscovering her first love.

FAQ:

> Why the Name "Ladies Night?"

The intention behind this event is to bring our community together to support female DJs in the Bass Hive brand. Doesn't mean it's only women-identified only able to come into the space. This is definitely a collective, community, we appreciate our male-identified friends who post for us, support the female djs.

It's a ladies night because we are promoting empowered female-identified DJs. Empowered ladies being featured, plus a nod to a song called "Ladies Night" from back in the day.

Please be respectful of the space you are in. Everyone is welcome. We are in the space together. Be respectful of who is and who isn't a "lady". We all have perceptions of ourselves. This is a safe-space, queer-friendly. Let's be there for the Bass. Bassey-Housey night of music.

Only 120 people capacity at The Copper Owl. Let's get out there and have a good time!

The award winning Bombargo brings a vibrant splash of soul to their funky indie vibes with layers of rock, disco, and R&B infused throughout; they’ve created a sound that truly moves and grooves, inspiring the world to feel their music. Opening for legendary acts like John Butler Trio, Michael Franti & Spearhead, and Joel Plaskett, the band has been rapidly making a name for themselves with their unrivaled live show, catchy-groovin’ hooks, and good time guarantee.

Bombargo received massive acclaim when pop icon Taylor Swift added their 2018 single ‘Mr. No Good’ to her first and only Spotify playlist entitled ’Songs Taylor Loves’. The playlist features artist including Ed Sheeran, Camilla Cabello, and Kendrick Lamar. Being a part of this star-studded playlist saw Bombargo featured on CBC’s the Q, NME, Exclaim, Fashion, Noise, People, and Billboard. The aftershocks of this exposure has been monumental and have set the stage for Bombargo to become a household name globally.

Following up on the success of ‘Mr. No Good’, the band dropped their new disco single ‘All the Same’ in June of 2018 reaching #1 on Spotify’s Indie Allstar playlist. Their latest single ‘Oxygen’ released in August 2018 has landed itself on several new music, indie and pop playlists and it’s music video features Instagram/Youtube celebrity @Dreaming_Outloud. Bombargo has over 1 million streams on Spotify, half a million views on Youtube, and was just nominated as the Saskatchewan Music Awards “2018 Pop/Rock Artist of the Year”.

The group was originally formed by Nathan Thoen and Spenncer Chilliak after the two met and spontaneously decided to drive 16 hours to attend Sasquatch Music Festival. The duo found songwriting together effortless and wrote their debut single “Let it Grow” (Back on Main, 2015) during their very first writing session. Bombargo’s debut EP “Back on Main” would go on to be included in “The Top 10 Best Saskatchewan Albums of 2015” by SaskMusic, further inspiring them to continue writing, touring, and releasing multiple singles and CD’s. The group has since evolved into a larger touring band thats bought new possibilities to Nathan and Spenncer’s vision. This revived 7-piece lineup adds keys, saxophone, and massive 4-part harmonies; allowing them to grow their epic live performance and push their creativity in the studio.

Bombargo brings an unrivalled energy to the stage with sing along anthems, magical harmonies, life changing power hums, wild acrobatics, stunts, and heartfelt messages that combined make for one of the best live shows on planet earth. With frontman Nathan Thoen's passionate conviction and contagious ‘Jagger like’ dance moves, even billionaire and music industry icon Richard Branson was impressed “I haven’t seen this type of energy since The Rolling Stones” … and he would know, having personally signed The Rolling Stones to Virgin Records.

Bombargo has always remained a conscious band with a focus gibing back and making the world a better place. 100% of sales for their EP ‘Back on Main’ were donated directly to victims of Saskatchewan Forest Fires in 2015. Their song ‘Heroes Never Die’ was written as a tribute to Michelle Curtis who tragically passed away after rescuing over 8 drowning children in Nova Scotia (Full Story on CBC). And in 2018 Bombargo wrote and released the single “Share the Light” in tribute to those lost in the Humboldt Broncos accident, and donating 100% of sales to the families affected.

In short, Bombargo provides the perfect balance of conscious good times and wild energy recharging fun; reminding everyone how magical this life truly is and how each of us have the power to come together and use our magic to make this world a better place.

MISC MASC (Miscellaneous Masculinities)
Exploring Healthy Masculinity Part 2: Consent & Pleasure

Cheers to Social Change!

Join us at The Copper Owl for part two of Misc Masc: Consent and
Pleasure. Communication is key to healthy relationships. However,
consent goes well beyond clarity, comfort, and care. Practicing
consent is the language of intimacy and pleasure, allowing us to
fulfill our desires and connect to authenticity and vulnerability.
Joining us will be guest speakers Tanille Geib (Healthy Humans), Geoff Plint, MA, RCC (Geoff Plint Counselling) and Musician Honte to help us get the conversation going.

Miscellaneous Masculinities is a group of community members who are dedicated to exploring healthy expressions of masculinity. The goal of these pub conversations is the opportunity to gather with other community members and engage in meaningful conversations about how masculinity impacts our ability to communicate intimacy in thoughtful and meaningful ways.

The event is open to people of all genders, backgrounds, experiences, and orientations who are interested in participating in a creative and critical discussion about masculinity.

Please note that this is a pro-feminist event and our expectation is
that patrons enter this space with thoughtful and respectful
intentions.

Tickets are $12 and can also be purchased at the door. We recognize the finances might be a barrier to attending. Please feel free to contact Nick (manmade@islandsexualhealth.org) for sliding scale options.

If you have any questions about the event please contact Nick Sandor at manmade@islandsexualhealth.org

This event is being held on the unceded Coast Salish Territory of the
Lekwungen and W̱SÁNEĆ nations.

This event is brought to you in partnership with Man Made, Vila

ARTIST INFO

Tourist Company - "Apollo" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AAnc-Xmq1b8

Tourist Company formed after meeting in 2013. After that they teamed up with singer-songwriter Jordan Klassen to produce and record their EP Space Race, which they released in May 2014.

In June 2014, the band was accepted into the Peak Performance Project. In November of that year, they won the $50,000 3rd place prize.

The band toured and recorded throughout 2015. Their debut single "Shouldn't Believe" was released and sent to radio on September 14, 2015. On April 29, 2016, the group released Mercury EP.

The band's second single "Pedestals" was released on August 16, 2016 ahead of their debut record, which was announced for an October 21, 2016 release date in North America. "Pedestals" broke into the Top 30 of CBC Radio 3 that September, reaching a peak of #21 on the chart. It then crossed over into the Top 20 of CBC Radio 2 at #20 on October 28, 2016. It peaked at #8 on December 1, 2016.

The group's full-length debut LP Apollo was released on October 21, 2016. It was placed on The Georgia Straight's Best Albums of 2016 list.

Their third single "Apollo" premiered on The Strombo Show on February 12, 2017, and was sent to radio on February 13, 2017. It debuted at #22 on the CBC Radio 3 Top 30 on March 13, 2017, and peaked at #5 on April 10, 2017.

Apollo was released across Europe on October 20th, 2017, and featured as a NoiseTrade "New + Notable" for the same week.
On May 18, 2018, the band released a standalone single entitled "Spokane" and stated they were working on their sophomore record.

“Conflicted/Restricted” has been announced as the lead single from their sophomore record and will be available on all platforms on January 25, 2019.

Long Range Hustle - "Crush You" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rklqIrRHC4Q

If you're new to a Long Range Hustle show, it only takes a minute to feel how their contagious energy connects with everyone in the room. From a sweat soaked club to a breezy festival stage, Long Range Hustle brings the warm infectious melodies, driving rhythms, and gorgeous harmonies, in spades.

A mix of high school and summer camp counsellor tenures brought the core of this southern Ontario five-piece together - Paul Brogee (vocals, guitar, violin), Jay Foster (vocals, piano), Mike Brogee (bass, vocals), and AJ Fisico (drums, vocals) with Ryan Pritchard (guitar) solidifying the line up in early 2017. Each of the five members come from diverse musical backgrounds, ranging from jazz to rock to classical, but all share a common love for songwriting and performing.

The August 17, 2018 release of their new single, Morning Clover, brings the dawn of a new era for LRH. This offering is the first cut from their upcoming 2019 album. A recording session at The Bathouse Studio near Kingston, Ontario with acclaimed Scottish producer and mixer, Tony Doogan (Belle & Sebastian, Wintersleep, Snow Patrol) brings about a refined and evolved sound for the band, reflective of their persistent drive to push themselves.

The band started to gain momentum with the release of "From Seedlings to Saplings…" in 2016. Confront Magazine noted, the sound "strays from the guitar-drums-bass formula to incorporate violin and piano in every hook-laden song." Over the last few years, touring has taken them from the Maritimes to Manitoba, they've shared stages with Arkells, Matt Mays, Big Wreck, and delighted hometown crowds with month-long residencies at Toronto's Dakota Tavern. http://www.longrangehustle.com http://www.facebook.com/long.range.hustle http://www.twitter.com/longrangehustle http://www.instagram.com/longrangehustlemusic\

Thu. February 28th 2019  Matt Storm, Ivan Hartle, Cara Bateman

Matt Storm, Ivan Hartle, Cara Bateman @ Copper Owl Feb 28 2019 - Jul 16th @ Copper Owl
2000
$10 at the door only.
Come join us for a night a Soul, Folk, Blues and everything in between. This will be the kick off for Ivan Hartle and Matt Storm's 4 day tour through Vancouver Island, with local artist Cara Bateman lending her talents for the first night!

IVAN HARTLE

Ivan Hartle was born and raised in Vancouver B.C. His influences and style have been shaped by an upbringing surrounded by music as well as his time playing college baseball in the southern United States. His music elicits vintage vibes and floats between the blues, soul, and folk genres. Characterized by his strong vocals, Ivan’s talents are evident in his guitar playing and percussion accompaniment.

Ivan's burst onto the Vancouver music scene with gigs at The Railway, The Belmont, Queen Elizabeth Theatre Plaza, The Anza Club, Cafe Deux Soleils, Mahoney and Sons, and many others. He was selected to perform at the Vancity Feature/Vancity Studio artist showcase event in September of 2018, Live Acts Canada Best in Vancouver Competition in the fall of 2018, and the Anza Live community showcase event in late 2017.

CARA BATEMAN

Though she stands small, singer-songwriter Cara Bateman’s voice is anything but. Bold and intoxicating, her sound has been described as a rock-gospel fusion. Her powerful vocals are coloured with a natural rasp that is at times gritty and soulful, and other times warm as honey. In her live performances, Cara is known to captivate, and literally silence, an audience – it is not uncommon for a hush to fall over the crowd when she belts out her first notes.

Cara entered the music scene in 2016 with the release of her debut EP, and has since gathered impressive momentum. After a spotlight feature on Roundhouse Radio in Vancouver, B.C., she went on to tour Canada and win a talent contest that gained her a spot on the lineup for Song & Surf Music Festival on Vancouver Island. Through this contest, Cara caught the attention of other bookers and promoters, and became connected with Rob Zifarelli of Paradigm Talent Agency. She went on to be booked for several tour dates with The Elwins and Dashboard Confessional, including a date at the legendary Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver, B.C. Festival season ended on a high note in 2018 when Cara brought her band to rock out at Sunfest Country Music Festival; one of Canada’s largest.

All of these experiences have generated considerable growth in Cara’s artistry and sound. Staying true to her folk roots, she continues to tell powerful stories that speak open and honestly about mental health, love, relationships, and the human psyche. In preparation for another release, Cara is currently experimenting with a darker, earthier, and rawer soundscape. Though she continues to grow and evolve, one thing is forever constant – her flawless vocals are like nothing you’ve ever heard before.

MATT STORM

Matt Storm is an Indie Soul Singer-Songwriter hailing from Vancouver B.C. Stepping on the scene around 2014, Matt has been writing, recording and performing his own work, and collaborating with other artists for quite some time.

His latest EP “Major 7th Medicine” came out mid October 2018, and was met with a warm reception in Vancouver, and Canada wide. The EP’s first single “You Still Stay” has been featured on CBC Radio Two’s “Afterdark” and “Nightshift”, and the music video has garnered over 4,000 views on Youtube. The second single “Floating”, was featured on multiple Spotify editorial playlists, and streamed over 60,000 times.

Matt has been performing solo, as well as with his band extensively in 2018, at venues such as The Biltmore, The Railway, Cafe Deux Soleil, Sofar Detroit/Seattle, Calabash and many more. As a backing musician with artists like Vancouver’s Desirée Dawson, he has more live experience at venues/events like The Vogue and Vancouver’s “Celebration of Light” Festival

His sound can be described as indie soul, playing on classic references such as Bill Withers intertwined with new sounds like Emily King, and Ray LaMontagne. His soulful lyrics and jazz influenced chord progressions make for a unique and relaxing listening experience. Drawing on life experience and introspection, his songwriting searches for meaning through melancholy, and hopes to define love through vulnerability.

$10 at the door only.
VIBRATE at Copper Owl

We're very excited to have our first guest Nathan Jonson joining the Vibrate crew at Copper Owl for a night of quirky techno, spicy electro and whatever the heck else we feel like playing. VIBRATE aims to create a comfortable and safe space to enjoy electronic music, a place to share new music and explore new sounds, and a chance for up and coming DJs to rinse their tunes. All are welcome.

Tickets -- $10 at the door

Our lineup:

Nathan Jonson
(Wagon Repair / 2020 vision / Rinse Recordings)
https://soundcloud.com/nathanjonson

Following a decade of producing and DJing as Hrdvsion, Nathan Jonson steps out under his birth name to mark a new stage in his career.

When you have explored as many styles as Hrdvsion did - everything from beatless, ambient tracks to rugged club cuts or pop bootlegs - there isn’t so much new ground to break. The switch of alias isn’t about doing something different but just about being open, honest and direct.

That said, with time Jonson’s need to challenge the norm has eased and his boundlessly experimental streak has become more focused. His impressive discography, spread across labels such as Wagon Repair, Balkan Recordings, Rinse and International Deejay Gigolo, hints at a producer who has valued diversity above all. His records have long been turned to by DJs right across the board, always guaranteeing them a striking and unusual sound. Now, without the pressure to surprise and re-invent, Jonson can go deeper into his craft and pinpoint what it is that linked his output over the years.

Big Body
https://soundcloud.com/thatbigbody

Big Body is a long time Victoria DJ spinning house, techno, electro, 140, 160, you name it. Evolving from the feistier days of electro bangers, Big Body's sound has matured into a more European take on techno and house. Constantly digging through new music, Ian's most excited to use VIBRATE as a venue to share his newest tunes and turn them up loud.

Jesse Campbell

Jesse is making his debut at VIBRATE. One half of Victoria's Voyages.fm, Jesse's driven by a tribal, melodic and psychedelic sound. We can't wait to hear what he's got.

LSB - Footnotes | soul:r | Spearhead - London
https://soundcloud.com/lukelsb
https://www.facebook.com/LukeLSB/

LSB’s first forays into Drum & Bass came in the early 2000’s as the co-promoter of the hugely successful ‘Bounce’ nights in Norwich. Cutting his teeth behind the decks as one of the resident DJ’s, he had already turned his hand to production by the time the team behind Bounce called it a day in 2007. His first productions surfaced on the now defunct imprints Bingo Beats (run by the legendary DJ Zinc) & Deep Soul Music in 2007-08. After a small hiatus spent honing his craft, he returned with fresh music in 2011 and his stock has been rising ever since.
‘All Of My Love’ / ‘Rolling Sideways’, released on BCee’s Spearhead Records, was the first of this new wave of productions and exhibited his new prowess in the studio and a more expressive, melodic sound that quickly became his trademark. Further releases on Spearhead quickly followed in the shape of the ‘Overthinking EP’, ‘The Hurting’ and more, as well as making a choice appearance on Artificial Intelligence’s Integral label with the hugely popular ‘Rotary Motion’ / ‘Serendipity’ 12” in collaboration with Technicolour & Komatic (now Technimatic of Shogun Audio).
By now, his blend of soulful musicality with dancefloor weight had won him a myriad of fans across the globe. Gigging across the UK and Europe to captivated audiences in 2014, he still found the time to remix ‘Serendipity’ for Integral, drop ‘XLRS’ on Shogun Audio as part of their 10 year compilation album as well as feature on Tokyo Prose’s hugely popular ‘Presence’ LP. A remix of London Elektricity’s ‘Vapour Trails’ followed as part of the Hospitality 2015 album before he featured on the sophomore DRS album ‘Mid Mic Crisis’.
‘The View’ was the stand-out track from a stand-out album, with his delicate instrumentation & arrangement perfectly complimenting Tyler Daley’s haunting vocals and DRS’ insightful lyricism. Having already impressed Soul:r boss Marcus Intalex with his music, a solo EP for the label came in the shape of volume 3 of the popular ‘Four:Fit’ series. The EP’s 4 tracks found their way into the sets of countless A-List Dj’s and showed a diversity in style, approach and a confidence gained from the ease with which his music fitted into the discography of one of the most respected labels in D&B.
Now working on follow up projects for Soul:r, producing remixes for some of the biggest labels in bass music, in addition to playing an ever expanding number of DJ dates across the world, the man simply known as Beavon to his friends is assured of his status as one of the brightest up & coming talents in Drum & Bass.
--------------------------------------
DRS - Space Cadet | soul:r | Signature - Manchester
https://soundcloud.com/mcdrs
https://www.facebook.com/Delrokski/

As a solo artist DRS is two albums, an EP and countless features into his trajectory. His music is the sound of an artist becoming a master of his domain, a weary look at life underpinned by honesty and great writing.
As a creative he works across different disciplines: music, film and art.
His success as an artist boils down to his refusal to speak on anything other than his truths, something that listeners can identify with, this is highlighted by three award wins at the Drum & Bass awards: Best MC, Best Vocalist and he featured on the Still Standing Remix which was awarded best remix. He is the go-to host for some of the finest that electronic music has to offer, from Calibre to Toddla T.
2017 is about furthering the message via two new outlets; Summit and The Awkward Music Group, stay tuned for more news on both of those soon.

Furniture Party, Hannah Rose, Mulligan, Heroes Of Canton @ Copper Owl Feb 7 2019 - Jul 16th @ Copper Owl
2100
$10 at the door only.

This event is 19+

Hannah Rose
"Stunning musician with an energy that is contagious and a hint of sass that is always on point! Don't miss the sweet sweet melodies coming from this one people!!"
-Kady Savard

Hannah Rose will be sure to get you singing along with captivating melodies and lyrics from her collection of original folk songs! Her music is the perfect way to relax after a long day before getting ready to go at it again when the next band turns up the heat.

Mulligan
Mulligan is a four piece band hailing from Victoria, BC. Delving in genres such as grunge, punk, metal, and melodic hard-rock, Mulligan has come to be well-known for their high-energy, crowd-inclusive performances. Rather than focus on getting every note right and every beat precise, Mulligan abides by the philosophy that as long as it's entertaining, and fun, and driven by raw emotion, any band's music is worth paying attention to.

Heroes Of Canton
This semi-political, rowdy punk-rock trio delivers a strong and encouraging message for people everywhere! From the raw sounds of punk, to the soothing and enlightening sounds of reggae, Heroes Of Canton always has the crowd moving.

Furniture Party
"A decent band, I guess."
-Ben Boyd, former Furniture Party bassist

What exactly is a Furniture Party? Honestly, no one knows, but what we do know is that Furniture Party is an exciting rock band that is sure to grab your attention. Featuring the talent of five different members, you can expect to see an immense variety in their set. From pop-punk to Latin rock, and blues rock to saloon jams, Furniture Party is by all accounts a band.

"Puff, a 5-song EP, was released in June ‘17 to resounding critical acclaim from Pitchfork, NPR, Zane Lowe, and The Fader. Stereogum and Exclaim named the release as one of the 'Best EPs of 2017. Puff was produced by Grammy Award-winner Shawn
Everett (Alabama Shakes, Lucius) and Matt Smith (Owen Pallett). The release was supported on tours with Charlotte Day Wilson and The Weather Station.

Continuing their enigmatic exploration of pop, jazz, and R&B, Bernice's new album "Puff: In the air without a shape" attempted to mimic the playful intimacy of the band’s live show. The album was called “a monument to ephemerality” by the New York Times and received a long-list nomination for the prestigious Polaris Music Prize."

SWAYZE - 403DNB - Calgary
https://soundcloud.com/codyswayze
https://djswayze.com/

Cody, or better known as just Swayze was born and raised in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. A 2nd generation DJ to his father Todd Swayze.
There was the constant sound of music filling the Swayze house and it wasn’t llong before he would follow in his fathers footsteps.
Prior to joining the mighty 403DNB, Swayze brought his love for Liquid Drum & Bass as far as Tokyo, Japan to perform for a monthly night run by Deep Dubstep legend Goth-Trad as well as Prague, Czech Republic opening for the infamous duo The Vanguard Project.
This is only just the beginning for the 24 year old Dj/Producer who has already opened for the likes of Sub Focus, Artificial Intelligence, LSB, Roni Size, Bryan G, Random Movement, Lenzman, SpectraSoul, and many many more.
2018 was a turning point for Swayze, Getting the opportunity to bring his music to Prague, close to the Liquid Sunrise Sessions at Shambhala Music Festival & perform with his resident crew 403DnB at this years Fozzy Fest is surely only a glimpse at what may be in store for 2019.

AKELA - Future Soul | Hydration
https://soundcloud.com/akelabassmusic

Matt Ess aka Akela aka Sinesthetix

Purveyor of Future Soul Victoria and Hydration Mix Series

Akela's sound can be described as "Fast Soul Music with Teeth". He infuses multiple genres on the warmer side of Bass Music, weaving groovy love stories with happy-go-lucky dancefloor bounciness. Be it Liquid Drum & Bass, Deep House, UK Garage, or Sexy Dubstep, Akela’s sound envelops the listener with a warm blanket of subsonic affection and intuitive funkiness. Shaping his sets to complement the environment in which they’re played, Akela draws from nearly two decades of DJ experience in dance music, and his track selections from the early days of House right the way up to the spankiest new DnB show exactly that. Akela creates upbeat moods, compelling short stories, and satisfied grins with his careful attention to minute sonic details, commanding the listener’s attention and unconscious wiggling of the pants area.
His contributions to the Victoria music scene are ever growing with his partner Tedder at the successful Future Soul series at The Copper Owl; parties and club nights with his PIC Amy Kirtay at Dub Selekta; and constant behind-the-scenes support of the emerging future music crews in Victoria. As a producer Akela has recently completed several soulful Liquid tunes, and currently runs the Hydration Mix Series which features some of BC's most respected Liquid Drum & Bass DJs. Additional recent performances include Tall Tree, Rifflandia, and Shambhala.

Looelle

LOOELLE is the combined musical efforts of Ellen Trottier & Niloo Farahzadeh. Armed with a guitar & a cajon, these ladies wrap their warm vocal harmonies around topics of love, loss and activism.

Wired To The Sky
https://wiredtothesky.bandcamp.com
Wired To The Sky is the ever-evolving solo project of Canadian artist, Dylan Perkons. After relocating from Montreal to the West Coast following the dissolution of his orchestral-folk project, Mind That Bird, Perkons began writing and performing new material, frequently collaborating with a rotating cast of Vancouver Island musicians. In late 2016, he and his band entered the studio to record their debut album, produced by Juno Award-winner Colin Stewart (Dan Mangan, Black Mountain, Yukon Blonde). The 2017 release, titled Steady Sparrow, Steady Flight finds Perkons' residing comfortably in a post-Americana landscape. Swaying between colorful indie folk and eerie country-noir, the arrangements compliment the earnest writing woven throughout the songs. Wired To The Sky is currently working on a follow-up release produced by Evening Hymns’ Jonas Bonnetta. The as-of-yet untitled effort is slated for an early 2019 release.

Miscellaneous Masculinities (Misc Masc.) Pub Conversations Part 1: Connecting with Family
About this Event
Cheers to Social Change!

Miscellaneous Masculinities is a group of community members who are dedicated to exploring healthy expressions of masculinity. Join us at The Copper Owl for Part One of Misc Masc: Connecting with Family, where we will dive into a thoughtful conversation about how masculinity impacts our ability to connect with others in meaningful ways. We have elicited guest speakers Sheldon Kitzul (ReImagining Masculinities), Paula Greene (Men's Trauma Centre) and Poet Byron Fry to get the conversation started.

Central to the evening is the opportunity to grab a drink and mingle with other community members to engage in meaningful conversations about how masculinity impacts our ability to create and sustain healthy relationships.

The event is open to people of all genders, backgrounds, experiences, and orientations who are interested in participating in a creative and critical discussion about masculinity.

Please note that this is a pro-feminist event and our expectation is that patrons enter this space with thoughtful and respectful intentions.

Tickets are $15 and can also be purchased at the door. We recognize the finances might be a barrier to attending. Please feel free to contact Nick (manmade@islandsexualhealth.org) for sliding scale options.

If you have any questions about the event please contact Nick Sandor at manmade@islandsexualhealth.org

This event is being held on the unceded Coast Salish Territory of the Lekwungen and W̱SÁNEĆ nations.

This event is brought to you in partnership with Man Made, Vila Presents, ReImagining Masculinities, and The Copper Owl.

The Copper Owl presents 3 talented performers showcasing their amazing music with indie, folk, country sounds. Have a chill Saturday with the CO crew and enjoy our excellent selection of beer and cocktails.

Check the acts below!

Cosy Father
https://cosyfather.bandcamp.com/
Cosy Father is a reclusive hillbilly with the voice of a young woman who writes, sings, records and weaves dreams in a small room in Victoria, BC. She now plays with a band made up of two musical brothers who emerged from the nearby backwoods and a freewheeling Albertan who wandered over the provincial boundary some years ago.

Sarah Osborne Music
http://www.sarahosbornemusic.com/
Sarah Osborne is like honey in your ears with her smoky voice and elegant guitar fingers. Her craft of timeless poetry and emotionally ripe music are inspired by the old growth forests and thick salty air of Canada’s wild west coast. Her dramatic and haunting aura will take you on an entrancing journey through a sultry and powerful blend of folk, blues, and jazz.

Cara Bateman Music
http://www.carabateman.com/
Though she stands small, singer-songwriter Cara Bateman’s voice is anything but. Bold and intoxicating, her sound has been described as a rock-gospel fusion. Her powerful vocals are coloured with a natural rasp that is at times gritty and soulful, and other times warm as honey. In her live performances, Cara is known to captivate, and literally silence, an audience – it is not uncommon for a hush to fall over the crowd when she belts out her first notes.

4 women led solo or duo projects packed into one intimate Thursday night.
*
Elder Sister Plum is Tanya Semple, a queer folk musician and songwriter based out of Victoria, BC. Elder Sister Plum uses subtle guitar playing and emotionally charged lyrics to pour her heart out and let you wade in the waters of her inner world. Her swashbuckling folk lullabies and musical ghost stories provide a dreamy landscape that anyone can get lost in
https://eldersisterplum.bandcamp.com/?fbclid=IwAR2dc5TOsz9BcE-Ki9zc524GmpdVPQyBQIx49cz2C6zNTcNqJ7BoXdLYvdE
*
Julia & The Spectacles are Julia Knight, a ukulele, guitar pedals, and everything else she dreams up. And her glasses. Knight is a former resident of South Dakota, where she devoted herself to studying the trumpet in a small college town of 25,000. Her love of film scores, mussette accordion and The Flaming Lips ultimately led her mind to roam outside the world of embouchures and marching band.

A.M.
The debut performance of A.M. (soon to be formerly known as Anna Jacquet), is a long awaited, slow and sultry folk groove mystery.
*
Baby Jay is husband and wife duo Jocelyne and Greg Block, featuring double electric guitar with lots of grit and silky smooth vocals. Channeling early rock and roll, slow dances, and a little bit of wild west / pirate opera, they bring lawless beauty, pulsing rhythms and ripping solos wherever they go.

Originally from Tasmania, Australia, he obtained a Bachelor of Music (Honours) from the University of Melbourne before relocating to New York City for almost a decade.

1000 Petal Lotus is dedicated to creating synergy through sourcing unlike samples, melodies and rhythms to create something bold and powerful.

FREQUENCY: Victoria weekly intimate underground club night.

_DANE
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 a young age. 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 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.

_with support from Local Favs TBA soon..

LINEUP:

DJ DUBCONSCIOUS (Nelson, BC)
[Shambhala Music Festival / Dubslingers / Gore Street Sound]

Dubconscious has come to represent both the east & the western coast of Canada. Born and raised in the Toronto area, he attended University in Victoria before spending 2 years in Nelson BC, snowboarding in the winters & working with the talent department at Shambhala Music Festival and as talent buyer with their venue, Bloom Nightclub. Since then, he's gone on to become a resident of the Living Room Stage over the past eight years, also performing on the Village Stage five of those years - as well as turning in 4 years of performances at Bass Coast. After a 4 year stint living in East Vancouver, this seasoned selector has returned to the Kootenays with a plethora of fresh flavors to pop off in the dance – monumental basslines meet a roots reggae infusion, reggae and dancehall intermingle, funky bashment vibes and bass-infused house face off, with elements of classic hip hop and trip hop, the drum'n'bass and jungle pulse keeping things lively, spacey halftimebeats contrast thick dubwise riddims - all tied together with a dash of turntablism.

********

BAD RABBIT

Bad Rabbit is Blackout x Nova Jade, a DJ Duo based in Victoria, BC that emerged after a meeting over tea, a few jam sessions, and a camping trip. They are spinning Bi-weekly on SUBFM and they are involved in many different projects in the Victorian electronic music scene.

With 21 years of combined experience, and their shared passion for music, bass and dance, Blackout and Nova Jade as Bad Rabbit are a duo on the rise, with the energy to match. Got Rabbit Food?

********

TYLER SHOCK (Winnipeg - Dubversified Culture)

Starting out DJing in Manchester, UK resident DJ Tyler Shock brought home to Canada a dark and weighty style heavily influenced by the dark textures of underground UK dubstep, grime, and drum and bass labels such as Critical records and Deep Medi.

Upon moving to Victoria out of Winnipeg, Tyler has continued developing a unique and varying style, taking in the sounds of West Coast glitch hop and bass house to develop an arsenal covering a wide range of styles and genres, able to step up and deliver selections for any mood or occasion.

Lion Dub | Innercity Dance | Stereo One | Digital Soundboy
https://soundcloud.com/marcus-visionary
https://www.facebook.com/djmarcusvisionary/

Marcus Visionary has been at the forefront of the Jungle DNB scene in Toronto Canada before it's very inception. He's often referred to as Canada's #1 DNB & Jungle export as well as being an ambassador for the ever evolving Jungle DNB sound worldwide. Marcus is one of the few artists out of North America who has built a strong foundation in the U.K & Europe as well as in the U.S. The journey started in 2004 when he was personally signed to the legendary Digital Soundboy family by Shy FX himself. Marcus joined the elite all star lineup alongside the likes of Benny Page, Breakage, Mark System, Stamina MC & B Traits. Since then he has travelled the world and played some of the biggest festivals representing his unique take on the Jungle DNB sound. Priding himself on upfront selection, clean mixing, musical versatility and a keen ability to read any crowd. Not to mention his collection of Dubplate specials which is something that has earned him fans the world over.

In his hometown Toronto, Marcus has been running the Prophecy on 89.5 FM for 20 Years alongside DJ Prime, Mr. Brown & Gremlinz. The program is North America's longest running Jungle DnB radio show and has been a integral part of the city's developing Jungle DNB music scene. In 2015 Marcus left the Prophecy in it's 20th year as he was asked to host his own exclusive radio show on the world famous Kool London (Kool F.M). You can catch Marcus the third Tuesday of every month from 2-4 EST 7pm-9pm GMT at http://www.koollondon.com.

the fifty fifty arts collective is
proud to present

Odonis Odonis (Toronto, ON)
http://www.odonisodonis.com/

Since their blown-out 2011 debut Hollandaze, Toronto trio Odonis Odonis has continued to push their sound further into the depths of post-apocalyptic experimentation. Following 2016's foreboding Post Plague, No Pop is the band's starker, more dance-floor-friendly fourth LP.

Executed with precision, every sonic component of No Pop commands attention. Stripping down instrumentation to a handful of synths and an electronic drum kit, the band worked quickly to write and record, bringing demos and improvised takes into the studio and completing the recording process over the course of three days. The result is a focused blend of hard-hitting industrial, techno, and noise – but each track on No Pop is never just one of those elements. Pulsing rhythms lay the ground for textural soundscapes masterfully woven together to create a palpable sense of doom that is thick and satisfying.

Taking its name from the anti-commercial No Pop movement, which infers that there "is no expiration date on music nor is it limited by geographic or regional boundaries," No Pop is raw with emotion that's elevated by deft production. Each hypnotizing meditation captures an uncomfortably honest cynicism with a brush of humor, emphasized by sparse vocals that taunt the current dystopia of technology, human emptiness and the mundane. No Pop is the soundtrack of a sinking ship, and we're all happily aboard to go down with it.

FREQUENCY: Victoria's weekly intimate underground club night.

It's been a few years since we've had El Molito in our booth, under the infamous honeycombs. Can't wait to show him our new bike lanes (we love them btw). Playing with The Mole we have LLL (local living legend) Koosh plus Thomas Promise of •••Dig Your Own Rave••• fame and one half of the Flex Deejays crew. You know the drill, tell a friend, meet a friend but most importantly.. come have some fun!

Artist info;

__The Mole of Maybe Tomorrow (Berlin)
https://soundcloud.com/moleofsoul
Seventies Hungarian funk, Youtube outsider artists, the dustiest of old Bollywood relics—all is fair game when it comes time for The Mole to pull either inspiration or wax for his house-heavy DJ sets and live shows. Decades in, the Canadian native still gets the jitters before a performance, which speaks a lot to his ethos. For a guy for whom a record bag is so much more than the sum of its parts, every gig is a big deal. And if you've ever had the chance to catch him in action—be it DJing or jumping between his MPC and a sole turntable—, you'd agree.

Low-key and loved by many, the rambling capitán of Maybe Tomorrow possesses a steadfast commitment to keeping it groovy above all. "And weird!" A normally elusive creature, The Mole can be found most at home behind a DJ booth during the wee smoky hours in the midst of long, drawn-out sets. The more time for injecting a bit of Marvin Gaye here, some Mercedes Sosa there, the better. Known for his love of sonic collage and musical noodling, he boasts a long and colourful list of releases—for labels like Perlon, Ostgut Ton, Slices of Life, Haunt, Musique Risquée, New Kanada, Internasjonal and longtime home Wagon Repair.

_Koosh of 7 inches of love

Additional Information:

Declared heroic by their peers for refashioning culture into what the group considers to be more honest statements, Negativland suggests that refusing to be original, in the traditional sense, is the only way to make art that has any depth within commodity capitalism...
- NEW YORK TIMES

Negativland isn't just some group of merry pranksters; its art is about tearing apart and reassembling found images to create new ones, in an attempt to make social, political and artistic statements. Hilarious and chilling.
- THE ONION

A provocation and a punk-inspired commentary on our mercenary culture…eloquent and impassioned spokesmen for ideas like a “creative commons”…it’s salutary to see these smart and influential guys get a gallery show.
- ART IN AMERICA

Negativland, longtime advocates of fair use allowances for pop media collage, are perhaps America's most skilled plunderers from the detritus of 20th century commercial culture...the band's latest project is razor sharp, microscopically focused, terribly fun and a bit psychotic.
- WIRED MAGAZINE

Negativland is arguably the preeminent audio collage collective of our time.
- HI FRUCTOSE
Mark Hosler is a founding member of the American audio visual collage group Negativland. Since 1980 Negativland have been creating records, video, visual art works, radio, and live performance, using appropriated sound, image and text. Taken mostly from corporately owned mass culture, Negativland re-arranges these found bits and pieces to make them say and suggest things that they never intended to. In doing this kind of cultural archaeology and "culture jamming" (a term they coined way back in 1984), Negativland have been sued twice for copyright infringement.

Mark takes a break from his Negativland duties to perform live and solo using a performance set-up built around various homemade one-of-a-kind electronic noise making devices (including two of Negativland's original "Boopers”). In these performances Mark creates an engaging and musical soundscape performance with devices that are intentionally unstable analog feedback boxes. Sometimes sounding like insane, alien, electronic insects fighting each other, the Boopers create a non-linear dynamic "living" system of sound for Mark to interact with that ends up being a performance dynamic where the musician is a fellow collaborator with the devices, encouraged to converse instead of merely transmit. The Boopers used in this show go way back to 1975, when Negativland founding member David Wills created the first one, adding multiple transistors to a simple FM radio receiver, and sending its output back into its input. Various knobs control the amount of signal through the transistors, but the sound that emerges remains wildly variable, and incredibly fun to listen to. Using multiple Boopers (all based on Wills's original design) and other homemade electronics as primary sound sources, Mark manipulates and augments the raw sound sources into a choral rainforest of pure electronic ear candy, erasing any easy distinction between the machine and the human. He might also rock out a little bit, too.

More info -

In addition to live shows, CDs, radio shows, books, DVDs and visual art shows both solo and with Negativland, Mark has given over 100 lectures at various places like MIT, Yale, Princeton, Duke University, New York University, UC Irvine, UC Berkeley UCLA, Seattle University School of Law, Cranbrook Academy of Art, Universities of Arizona, Virginia, Tennessee, Georgia, North Carolina, and at various venues in Washington D.C, New York City, London, Rome, Berlin, Barcelona, Lisbon, Bologna, Lausanne, Amsterdam, Stockholm, Toronto, Vancouver, Honolulu, Sydney and Melbourne Australia. He has also given talks at the Regional Conference to End Corporate Dominance, the Consumer Electronics Show, the Conference On The Public Domain, World Fair Use day, and, as a citizen lobbyist, given presentations about art and copyright law to the offices and staff of various Senators and Congressmen on Capitol Hill in Washington DC.

In 1995 Negativland's released a 270 page book with 72 minute CD entitled "FAIR USE: The Story of the Letter U and the Numeral 2". This book documents their 4-year legal battle over their release of a single entitled "U2". San Francisco filmmaker Craig Baldwin produced a feature length documentary about Negativland, their "U2" single, culture jammers and other appropriation artists entitled "Sonic Outlaws" and Mark has appeared at many showings of this film to lecture, speak, debate, and answer the many questions that are raised whenever that film is shown. Negativland also created the soundtrack and sound design for Harold Boihem's documentary "The Ad and the Ego," an in-depth look into the hidden agendas of the corporate ad world that goes deeply into the gross and subtle ways that we are adversely affected by advertising.

The group continues to perform and tour, broadcast their weekly radio show '"Over The Edge," and more recent work includes "Our Favorite Things" (a feature length DVD collection of their many years of collaborative film work), various retrospective art shows in New York City, Seattle, Minneapolis, Houston, and Los Angeles of their visual collage work, and "It's All In Your Head" finds the group tackling their biggest subject ever: why humans believe in God. This ambitious and densely-crafted double CD is packaged inside an actual King James Holy Bible which has been appropriately re-purposed into a "found" art object. Negativland mixes found music, found sound, found dialogue, guest personalities and original electronic noises into a compelling and thoughtful musical essay on monotheism, Christianity, Islam, Judaism, neuroscience, suicide bombers, 9/11, colas, war, shaved chimps, and the all-important role played by the human brain in our beliefs. http://www.negativland.com http://www.facebook.com/Negativlandland

Fri. October 19th 2018  Richard Reed Parry, Corwin Fox

Richard Reed Parry, Corwin Fox @ Copper Owl Oct 19 2018 - Jul 16th @ 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!

Their live shows are bursting with optimistic energy and contagious enthusiasm.

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

Scenic Route to Alaska, Peach Pyramid @ Copper Owl Oct 2 2018 - Jul 16th @ 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.

WONDERFUNC
Wonderfunc is a deep tech-house underground wizard who shifts his time between the rich coasts of Central America and Canada.

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...

NOVA JADE
Tera "Nova Jade" Greene is an award-winning DJ since 2003 and a recent transplant from Los Angeles, CA. She has lent her eclectic musical range to a vast array of landscapes and settings, including: art galleries, fashion shows, film and music festivals, clubs, and fitness centres.

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 - Jul 16th @ 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 - Jul 16th @ 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 - Jul 16th @ 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 - Jul 16th @ 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...

NOVA JADE

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 - Jul 16th @ 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

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 - Jul 16th @ 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 - Jul 16th @ 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+ :(

The Line-up is filled with amazing acts from all over BC. Here we have a few bands heading that way stoppin' in thursday night for those who maybe cannot make it and for those who want to start the party early!

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.

$10 at the door only.
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.
