Event Archive - Victory Square Music Fest 2-5pm Free!: Parlour Steps, The Van Eyes 3, Waltz Darling

Sat. August 14th 2010 Victory Square (All Ages)
2pm - 5pm doors at 1 pm
Presented by: Crab Water For Life Society, Bandcouver
Crab Water For Life Society received funding and support from The Community Arts Council of Vancouver, Raycam Community Centre and Co-op Radio.
So we've put together our first Victory Square Festival.
Saturday, August 14, 2-5pm

This historic site, dedicated to all who gave their lives in international conflicts, is located just a couple of short blocks Northwest of the Stadium skytrain station.
Right smack dab in the middle of Cambie-Pender-Hamilton & Hastings streets.

This is one of many Arts Council events celebrating and promoting the dynamic and vibrant downtown eastside.

All acts have been confirmed:

* Waltz Darling

They're on first at 2pm with their Eastern European slant on rock and roll!
They've been featured on Urban Rush and are a favourite of such local dynamos as Big John Bates! I've been plying them for years on Radio Bandcouver.

* The second act at 3pm is The Van Eyes 3

Featuring: Ian Tiles on drums, back from a successful Japanese tour with The Pointed Sticks.
Ron Scott from Shanghai Dog on guitar
The master of keyboard: Micheal Van Eyes

* The 3rd act at 4pm is Parlour Steps

They've been compared to such acts as Arcade Fire and XTC and would fit in nicely between the two. They're currently a featured band in The Peak Performance Project, and are guests at this year's Bumbershoot Festival in Seattle.

We'll see you there. Did I mention it was free?
