Vancouver, BC’s Rare Americans are crooked and catchy. Not crooked in the sense that they’re criminals. Crooked in the sense that they see the world a little crooked and tell stories with slants. On the band’s self-titled debut album, Rare Americans sing for characters who rarely take the straight path. Produced by 10x Grammy-winner Joe Chiccarelli (The White Stripes, My Morning Jacket, The Strokes) the album features guest musicians from Modest Mouse and The Shins. Led by brothers, James & Jared Priestner, guitarist Lubo Ivan, and bassist Jeff Quinn, they released their first single, ‘Cats, Dogs & Rats’ in June 2018. Since then, the band has generated 7 million+ YouTube views, 1 million+ Spotify streams and features in Clash Magazine, Punk News, & Alternative Press. Their album, Rare Americans debuted at #86 on the NACC charts with placements on Sirius XM. Rare Americans will be taking their record on the road, touring North America & the UK in 2019.

N0V3L occupies a sonic landscape that recalls spring-loaded post-punk dissonance, new-wave’s downcast dance anthems, and laser-precise political funk. It feels crass to call N0V3L a band—the word feels cumbersome and bloated with traditionalist connotations. N0V3L is a self-sustaining creative collective operating out of a house in Vancouver, where they produce their own music, videos, and clothing. These elements converge and convulse to create music that challenges the gluttony and ruin wrought by power, while humming along with kaleidoscopic spontaneity into a tightly-wound audible world that is at once jarring and violently danceable. N0V3L’s debut EP is a call to a burnt-out dance floor, where the dance floor has become a space of dialogue and action and resistance. Please do enjoy.

Vancouver’s own queer post-punk trio, Land Line, fka Sorry Edith, is apologizing no more. On the heels of their first cross Canada tour supporting rock legends, The Pack AD, they are set to release their long-awaited eponymous 5 song EP. While promising their “hard-hitting and emotionally driven sound” (Discorder Magazine), Land Line has broadened their influences and evolved from Garage/Grunge rock to a more refined and polished New Wave 5th generation Post Punk sound.

This venue is wheelchair accessible. The main cabaret room is accessible through a ramped entrance. There is also a wheelchair accessible washroom in the space as well.

Artists from all genres and all regions across BC are encouraged to apply and submissions intake will be ongoing until May 10th, 2019, with three different artists being selected by a jury of local industry tastemakers for each showcase night.
