If you're headed to tomorrow's sold out Mumford & Sons show, here are some pointers you should take into consideration.
Holland Park is Surrey's newest urban park, located at 13428 Old Yale Road. At over 10 acres, it is a welcome green space in the city's emerging City Centre neighbourhood.
Part of the Concerts in the Park series, this event will feature a bike valet, two onsite beer tents, and two first-aid tents. As always, the rush level on the SkyTrain will be quite high, so plan accordingly.
For more information and directions, check out Holland Park's website.
When Metallica played Vancouver last August, the Bay Area metal masters made a big deal about how they were going to be filming the show for an upcoming 3-D concert film.
Well, today the band released a trailer for the flick, Metallica Through the Never, which will be released exclusively on IMAX on Sept. 27, before hitting regular theatres on October 4.
It's pretty kick-ass.
Admit it: more often than you care to admit, you find yourself standing in front of full-length mirror, greased and semi-naked, staring at your ass. Perhaps you're even the kind of person who takes picture of your own ass, and then, like a dirty birdy, posts those pictures to NSFW Tumblr, Instagram, and Reddit accounts.
You know what? It's time to stop. Why bother sharing your ass with a world where the competition includes the likes of Rihanna? Like you, Rihanna seems to like taking pictures of her ass. She also doesn't mind sharing those pictures with the world, if only temporarily.
If you're a fan of old rock music you've probably already heard that Ray Manzarek, keyboardist for legendary American band the Doors, died yesterday from cancer at the age of 74.
I wasn't a hardcore Doors freak, but I did enjoy a lot of their songs. I mean, what's not to like about "L.A. Woman", "Love Her Madly", "Light My Fire", "Break On Through (To the Other Side)", "People Are Strange", and "Riders on the Storm"?
First we got the sad news yesterday that former Doors keyboardist Ray Manzarek had died from cancer at the age of 74.
Now comes word that bassist Trevor Bolder, former member of David Bowie's amazing backup band the Spiders from Mars, has succumbed to the Big C at only 62.
Bolder is best known for his work, alongside guitar legend Mick Ronson and drummer Woody Woodmansey, on the iconic '70s Bowie albums Hunky Dory, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars, Aladdin Sane, and--with Aynsley Dunbar replacing Woodmansey--Pin Ups.
Some of B.C.’s hottest indie bands return to New Westminster for Uptown Live 2013, a free music and arts street festival taking place Saturday (May 25) from 1 to 7 p.m.
Presented by Royal City Centre and Westminster Centre, Uptown Live kicks off outside the Uptown shopping district (6th Avenue at 6th Street) after the Key West Ford Hyack International Parade. Three performance stages will showcase bands, such as the Boom Booms, Good for Grapes, Bend Sinister, the Belle Game, the Shilohs, Buckman Coe, and New Westminster’s own Warren Dean Flandez.
Along with live music, the festival will also feature a BMX bike demonstration, food trucks, and a family fun zone.
You know when you’re flipping through crate after crate of rare vinyl and you find yourself craving a gourmet hot dog made from secret ingredients including, possibly, jalapenos? Well, Robert Privett’s got you covered.
For the seventh Main Street Vinyl Fair, organizer Privett has teamed up with wiener king DougieDog to produce the Vintage Vinyl Dog—available for the two days only this weekend (May 18-19) when the Vinyl Fair takes over the Cambrian Hall on East 17th Avenue.
We'll leave off the preamble this time around because we're busy working. Working for the weekend, as it were. And we'll probably be working on the weekend as well, but c'est la vie.
Anyhow, it's the Victoria Day long weekend, with all the long border waits and pissing rain that entails. Rather than hitting the highway with everyone else, you're better off staying at home and cranking the Loverboy. (Skip the first couple of minutes of this, unless you want several spurious explanations of the album title Get Lucky.)
The subject of a music feature this week, Vancouver's own Gold & Youth serve up something dark and stylish in the video for the song "Jewel".
The clip was directed by Natalie Rae Robison and was produced by The Lab magazine. It doubles as a fashion video, showcasing clothing by MARKOOF. No, I don't know what MARKOOF is either, but that's what it said in the credits.
