The Georgia Straight presents Sparkmarker at the Rickshaw
Live Nation has announced that local post-hardcore group Sparkmarker is reuniting, after fifteen years apart, to perform—with guests Carpenter and Narrows— at the Rickshaw Theatre on Friday, September 28.
Sparkmarker features Rob Zgaljic (Black Halos / Red Vienna) on drums, Kim Kinakin (Skinjobs / San Angelus) on vocals and guitar, Jason Craig (Sabrael) on bass, and Ryan Scott (Deadsure / Owl Drugs) on vocals.
The founding members of Sparkmarker met in 1990 while working at a local Vancouver record store. Using its own finances, the group recorded and released its own music, promoted its own shows, booked its own tours, made its own merchandise, toured North America and Europe, and eventually signed to California's Revelation Records.
Sparkmarker will perform select songs from its albums Products & Accessories and 500wattburner@seven. In memory and recognition of Sparkmarker guitarist Jordan Studdard, profits from the sale of Sparkmarker merchandise will benefit the Vancouver chapter of Cystic Fibrosis Canada.
