PULL THE PLUG: A fundraiser for media Democracy Day 2010

Featuring the wicked music of:

JASPER SLOAN YIP
...http://www.myspace.com/Jaspersloanyip

Jasper Sloan Yip is a Vancouver-based singer/songwriter whose razor-sharp, quick-witted lyrics are an unexpected match for his folk-infused melodies and instrumentation. Within a month of completing his first full-length album Every Day and All at Once, lead single “Kiddo” was in regular rotation on CBC Radio 3. “Slowly,” the second single off of Every Day and All at Once spent ten weeks on the CBC Radio 3 top thirty, making it as far as number four.

YES NICE

In July, this five-piece with a love for pitch-perfect harmonies, swirling strings, hand claps, and catchy melodies were chosen as top 20 finalists in the Peak Performance Project- an annual artist development competition run by the Peak 100.5 FM and Music BC. Live, the band is known for blowing audiences away with displays of tremendous lyrical maturity, passionate performances, and airtight recreations of their recorded work.

41ST AND HOME
http://www.myspace.com/41standhomemusic

Starting as a humble collaboration between drummer Garth Covernton and singer/songwriter Thom Kolb in 2008, 41st and Home has since grown into a lush, orchestral, folk-tinged dream pop combo. Supported by a rotating cast of violinists, trumpeters, and multi-instrumentalists, their stories of relationships, long drives, and hours spent together in a small, carless garage somewhere on 41st avenue are decadent, heartfelt, and elegantly crafted. The band are also top 20 contenders in the Peak Performance Project, and like Yes Nice, come to Media Democracy Day fresh on the heels of a hugely successful showcase at The Red Room.

Jasper and the gang have been at it for a couple of years now, proving their sound in a plethora of festivals, showcases, and traditional music venues. Jasper’s second album, Everyday And All at Once, is a sound that’s completely his own, yet so intuitive that it seems like your own. Every song is unique, and each song takes you on a bitterswee... more info

41st and Home (Indie)

In December of 2007, two men had to piss...and a band was born. Well, that's an oversimplification. But founding members Thom Kolb and Garth Covernton did first bump into each other at the porcelain playground, though we can't promise they didn't peek. From then on, countless discussions of musical tastes, styles and directions were tested and trie... more info
