We’re celebrating the end of a great year and the beginning of an even better one with our pals at Arbutus and Green Burrito!!!! Funky N.Y.E party at Pat’s Pub with a killer line up! Sean Nicholas Savage, Blue Hawaii and Vancouver ex-pats Walter T.V are coming from Montreal to burn the house down along with Vancouver favorites, Watermelon! Join us as we pop bottles and shake it LATE into the night. Check the event on the ol’ FB and feel free to get advance tix on the cheap at any reputable record store in the city.
We’re really happy about the releases we’ve done this year and we are even happier for what’s to come! If you haven’t yet, check out our big cartel shop for the new High Drops/ Bummer High split and keep an eye out for the pre sale of our upcoming split with Aaaron Read and Koko!
We’re finally having our 3rd release party for the long awaited High Drops/Bummer High split! THIS FRIDAY! AT THE ASTORIA! The Record is finally here and we’re thoroughly stoked!! Both bands will be playing their first show in months with support of Vancouver super group, Eating Out (members of Nu Sensae, Peace and White Lung).
This 3rd Student loan release has The High Drops kick it off on the A side with “Part of the Brigade”, an anthemic garage take on patriotic disillusion, while on the B side Bummer High cooks up a backwoods psych potion of fuzz induced delirium with “Don’t let it Happen to You”. Listen to each side of the split and get amped for the release this Friday!
We’re really stoked to be a part of this. Trash Talk, Nu Sensae and others at Venue… for $10! Cherchez and Daniel will be DJ’ng too!
Underground Vancouver. $5 shows. DIY venues. Touring bands. No presales. Community. Art. Music. Babes male/female. Put together in a week. $ICK.
We open up the first night with group opening ‘END/BEGINS’ at ROYGIBV. With sets by Terror Bird and Animal Bodies. Then a late shredder at 360 Glen with Weed, Naomi Punk and others. 360 Glen will have half off cover and $2 shots of the hard stuff from 12-1am, so get there early!
Thin Gaze gets some love from Ad Hoc this week for their debut release! Check it out and preview the single from the tape!
Last month we threw the release party for Thin Gaze on the roof top of their house and it was AMAZING. It got a little bit out of hand with so many people showing up but it was really one of the best shows we’ve done so far. A perfect summer evening with a view of the whole city and coincidental fireworks in the distance.
The Safe AMP S.P.A.C.E camp is on at Chapel Arts tomorrow and Sunday! Jarrett from Student Loan will be talking on a panel Saturday at 12:45 about releasing records alongside Ryan Dyck from Hockey Dad, Nic Hughes from Isolated Now Waves and the legendary Calvin Johnson from K Records! Ian McKaye will be giving the keynote address. No reason not to come.
