I don't normally announce upcoming shows on this here blog but the next few days in the city are looking rather exceptional.
Wednesday: Make sure that you attend the second anniversary of Fake Jazz tomorrow night at the Cobalt. Twin Crystals headline and are preceded by Perelisk and a host of others.
Thursday: Old Time Relijun make a rare Vancouver appearance with Shearing Pinx at the Biltmore.
Friday: The second edition of the Fake Jazz offshoot, Fakesleep, will be at Vivo. I'm especially stoked to see Gabriel (ex-Yellow Swans) make is his first Vancouver live apperance since disbanding Yellow Swans and making the big move up north. Fibrialltion from Bangkok, Aerosol Constellations and Empty Love w/ Les Beyond all perform that night as well. Head down to the Biltmore afterwards to check out personal local faves No Horses open for Grand Archives
Saturday: Head back to Vivo for Kellarissa's Mint Records release show. Supported by Hello, Blue Roses and Les Beyond. I have spent much time with Kellarissa's newest release and it sincerely has to be one of my favorite listens so far this year. Mutli-layered bedroom that sits very well in the current wave of like-minded experimental psych-pop songstresses like Inca Ore, Pocahuanted and Grouper. Her live show is absolutely mesmerizing. Also, much thanks goes out to Larissa for letting me pen her Mint Records ad copy! The pleasure was all mine.
Sunday: RECORD SWAPMEET at the Croation Cultural Center. 11pm-5pm. $3!
See ya'll out there.
