Week 258: Rain City Chronicles 5th Anniversary


sceneandheard 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.

Rain City Chronicles has just turned FIVE years old, and the event on the 16th will mark it’s 30th show. It’s seen hundreds of storytellers, and over 30 different musicians grace the stages of so many unique venues in the city.

We decided to dig through the archives and find as many tunes by the artists who have shared their songs over the years (there were many more ‘unofficial’ musicians without recordings that we wish we could share too!). Click the images below to hear the playlist, and get your tickets to “The Day That…” asap, as they usually sell out!
