|SCENE AND HEARD showcases the independent music scene here in Vancouver.
With over 36,000+ artists, boasting more than 150,000+ tracks, the CBC Music/CBC Radio 3 web site is the absolute ultimate authority, and the home, of independent music in Canada. With that massive library along with tools for members (free to join!), we’re taking advantage of what they’ve set up by bringing you a fresh batch of music every week featuring local groups who have tracks (entire albums, even!) on the R3 site.
For the second time Vancouver string quartet Four On The Floor is producing a show called the String Fling. The last event was a great success and saw the players matched up with many talented artists – and now they’re back for more with String Fling II. On Thursday Feb 6th check out Four On The Floor with: Brandon Scott (Yukon Blonde), Fur Trade (Steve Bays and Parker Bossley of Hot Hot Heat), Jay Malinowski (Bedouin Soundclash), Laura Smith (Rococode), Ryan Guldemond (Mother Mother), and Tonye Aganaba!
