Robert Hampson in an exclusive interview with VanMusic told us about the origin of his music “I guess when we started the idea was to try to do something a little bit different, but we were very much influenced by regular stuff like The Velvets, MC5, The Stooges and by a lot of minimalist music like Steve Reich or what Glen Branca was doing, it was a way of making an amalgamation of that kind of sound but trying to make it a little bit different”

BEEKEEPER can’t lay low, because they won’t lay low. Much like a jack-in-the-box, this Vancouver based post-pop three-piece will be popping up every which where in 2013, surprising, delighting and perhaps making audiences feel a little scared but in a good way, starting with a headlining event Saturday February 9 at the Biltmore Cabaret. The evening will be a celebration of the release of their brand new EP. And what’s a celebration without good friends? Young Liars and SSRIs will …

By Corina Pilay. Faint flashes of The Hip made the band sound more orchestrated and East Coast than most of the bands I have seen lately. A five piece band. Library gathered a decent crowd to the stage to enjoy their pop-folk tunes. It was also a swift transition since their full, indie-folk sound complimented Redgy Blackout quite a bit. No doubt, they are talented.
Wednesday December 14th Come one come all!! This will be a wonderful night of music presented in collaboration with The Biltmore Cabaret. The Reckoners will be performing as quartet with special guest Scott Smith on lapsteel, pedalsteel, and electric guitar and Jeremy Holmes on stand up bass, banjo, and mandoline. It is our final show of the season and we are very much looking forward to seeing everyone there!!
Cory Woodward will be performing with his new full band.
Peak Performance Top 20 artist for 2011 Redgy Blackout will also be performing!!

Review of Anvil and Sepultura shows. The band (Anvil) exploded onstage in a maelstrom of power chords and energy, with Lips leaping off stage to rock amongst the crowd for most of the first song, to the delight of the camera wielding fans.
This being the end of the North American Tour, Sepultura brought out members of Hate and the other bands for a metal Drum circle/jam session that reminded us of the tribal roots (bloody roots!!) of one of the most influential metal bands of our time.
Here are some recommendations for these upcoming months that we in vanmusic think you should check out before you die. Among the international artists Timbre is bringing to our city are Brendan Perry and Robin Guthrie from Dead Can Dance and Cocteau Twins respectively, from Japan Guitar Wolf and Cibo Matto, from Australia Arquitecture in Helsinki, from NY Thurston Moore from Sonic Youth among other popular bands. Anyways, we chose a couple of them for you, we left out Lykke Li and Adele because they are sold out and Killing Joke is canceled due to illness.

BAHAMAS TOURING U.S. IN SUPPORT OF CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED ALBUM, PINK STRAT
Afie Jurvanen isn’t from the Bahamas. He’s a Finnish-Canadian from Barrie–a working class town in rural Ontario. But his chosen epithet is fitting. Since 2009 he’s been making music under the name Bahamas–writing songs about sunsets, love affairs, and making out with girls with crooked smiles. Through simple arrangements, he charts an escape route from the snow belt to the coral reefs.
Bahamas will be embarking on a short U.S. Tour, including 10 dates primarily on the West Coast and …

Last Friday April 29th genuine Menomena followers gathered at the Biltmore for an excellent and professional live performance. Halfway through the set, the soaked in sweat Justin Harris was thrilled with the palpable response to the band’s latest album Mines: “The question is…why aren’t you at the Fleet Foxes?” he asked.
Fed by the crowd’s energy, constant singing-a-long and dancing, the band delivered a flawless rock show. The multi-talented musicians rocked with smooth song transitions and their distinctive bass and sax gripping sound filled-up the Biltmore and the fans’ expectations. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Menomena selling-out at the Commodore Ballroom in their next visit…they are definitely on their way to filling arenas.
