Photos - Industry Night #2

We had another brilliant showcase at Industry Night No.2 last night.  The video is being edited as this blog is going up but we wanted to share some photos of the event.  Huge thanks to Legs and Christine McAvoy for making an entertaining and exciting evening.  The band played an massive dark and moody set with power to spare!  Watch out for Legs, they are going to rise rapidly!

Big thanks to everyone who came out last night, between the band, their fans, Christine and the wonderful crew who helped film the showcase, we all had a rewarding night!  Check back here in a day for the video from the evening; Industry Night episode two will be epic. 

Next show will be November 25th at The Cobalt: host Hatch Benedict with musical guests Phoenix Thunderbird

Industry Night: Episode One - Japanese Girls

We had a fantastic launch to our new series on Monday night, with an energetic and inspired performance by Japanese Girls and a hilarious interview with Hatch and Cory from Sex With Strangers.  The crowd was buzzing after the night and there is a feeling of excitement about the upcoming shows.

Our next show in the series is Monday Oct 28th with musical guests Legs and host Christine McAvoy.  There's quite a buzz surrounding this band so we expect another brilliant night down at the Media Club.

After the 28th we are relocating the show to The Cobalt, and will be restarting on Nov 25th with none other than Phoenix Thunderbird!  Expect Hatch to be back in the interviewer seat, he did a wonderful job and seemed to enjoy it thoroughly!

Here's another song recorded on the night: Vancouver Grizzly, the first single off Japanese Girls Shark Week ep.

Industry @ Media Club

Industry night is just around the corner at the Media Club starting next Monday, October 7th.

Oct 7th.  To make our first show something special we've asked comedian Simon King to host the evening.  The man is truly funny.  Check out the clip below.  Along with Simon there will be two other special guest comedians with DJ's Cory and Co. closing the evening with the best of party tunes to make next Monday a stellar time!   Musical guests for the night at Megabear.  

Oct 14th is not an official Industry night, however there will still be late night dancing with H&M Soundsystem providing the tunes and drink specials into the wee hours. 

Oct 21st is looking to be a fantastic night.  We have Light Organ recording artists Japanese Girls on stage, with guest hosts Hatch Benedict and Wedge Beavers from the band Sex With Strangers interviewing the band and offering their unique take on the music biz.  The evening's DJ's are Cory & Co. once again, spinning some happy tunes to make Monday nights into the dance party it needs to be! Check out the new EP from Japanese Girls below.

Oct 28th is another great night, with the smokey voiced Legs on stage to provide a sultry blues infused rock and roll evening.  Benn McGuire will Host.   Music by H&M Soundsystem.

This is going to be the most fun people have had on a Monday in Vancouver since this century began!  Come early for the show, and stay for the dancing! (Jack Daniels has sponsored our night, so please inquire at the bar for the evening's drink specials!)
