Every so often I find myself lost in a list of upcoming shows, trying to figure out who to see and who to miss. It is a terrible predicament to be in because I want to see them all. Sadly, that is not in the card, especially when their are half a dozen great shows in any one given evening.
Because of this show review, I decided to put out a list of three upcoming shows that looks interesting. I will only list bands that are playing at smaller venues, hopefully I can sway at least one person out there to check out something they never even knew about.
Murs, Fashawn, Prof & Seko
Where: Fortune Sound Club – link
When: March 14th 2013
Why: Because this is part of The Road TO Paid Dues tour, featuring some seriously heavy weight in the up and comers hip hop category. Fortune Sound Club will be bouncing off its foundation that night. Check out the video by Murs.
Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Foxygen & Wampire
Where: The Media Club – link
When: March 23rd 2013
Why: The headliner for this show is getting huge praise for their music, this will be the last time you will be able to see them play such a small venue in Vancouver. Plus Foxygen and Wampire are making waves of their own. This is setup to be one of the underdog shows of 2013. Check out UMO’s video:
Where: Commodore Ballroom – link
When: May 30th 2013
Why: If you haven’t heard of the Foals, you need to rush out and take them for a listen. They are starting to get a lot more play on the radio. From all accounts they put on amazing live shows. Check out their video here:
