After their 2012 sold-out run of L’orchestre d’hommes-orchestres Performs Tom Waits they are back to the newly renovated York Theatre with a spectacular performance. Their intention was not to play a complete opera, they wanted to take us through a trip on Weill’s life, although not in chronological order, combining songs in German, French and English ranging from 1928 to 1949.
The orchestra put on an iconoclast concert; a theatre of the absurd; a dadaist concert with modern musical influences like Kraut rock or artists like The Residents with more traditional styles like jazz and cabaret music. At the end, we are immersed in a space with 8 mad multi-instrumentalists that parade brass, guitars, bass, accordions and various objects that serve as percussion (bells, glasses, tables, chairs and an almost not existent drum kit, electro-domestics, etc). The absurd come hand in hand with the comical aspects of the performance. Their use of props, clothes and interaction among themselves make it more theatrical than a regular gig. Its a very innovative show that cannot be missed.

It is THE ELIXXXIRS’ sworn duty to get you moving faster than a prune juice smoothie. Since their start in 2005, the band has developed far beyond its original ska/reggae format, serving up an original and infectious mix of pop, rock, and punk. The Elixxxirs are a fixture on Vancouver’s live scene and they regularly tour Western Canada, building a reputation as capable hosts for the kind of night that shouldn’t be followed by any concrete plans.

Vancouver, BC’s Fantasy Prom was created on the premise of musical freedom and expression.
The members spent many years playing in “genre specific” bands that were limited and bound to song structures all bands within punk, garage or noise rock typically follow.
Bored with this mindset, founding member and main songwriter Richie Fudalewski began writing and recording music. 28 songs later he recruited like-minded musicians such as Amelia Fudalewski on vocals (Yung Mums), Denyss McKnight (The Black Halos) and Ross LaLonde (Crystal Swells) to complete the band.
The band’s sound blends ethereal-dreamy melodic vocals over …

Quirky and a bit different… They’re prince and they’re pauper; outrageous and proper… they’re Stone Poets.
What began as a single songwriting session to write one song, developed into a weekly gathering of creative minds and a virtual song factory. Stone Poets have been described as “dark folk”… folk perhaps, because of the instrumentation: keyboard, two acoustic guitars and rich harmony laden vocals… dark perhaps, as the subject matter in their songs ventures into dangerous waters sometimes…
She’s been writing and recording since 1995 and has produced 5 CDs in that …

A band that takes its name from a posted announcement found along a waterfront promenade could be dismissed like so many other signs for found pets, purses and mobile phones. Who takes the time out of their busy lives to print and post these messages of hopeful reunion? Do people even read these things?
