The first site in the Indivision Network, LiveVictoria.com, began as an idea in the summer of 1999. We wanted to build an online home for the music community of Victoria BC. And it was out of our success with that original site that LiveMusicVancouver.com was developed. Over the years we changed, molded, and expanded the site to the form that you see here. Our mission is to provide a free, open-access, up-to-date resource for, and by, musicians and music lovers who want to learn more about what each city and region has to offer.
LiveMusicVancouver.com offers a myriad of useful services. Casual listeners can surf around to find something interesting, while devoted fans can check out up-coming shows of their favourite genre or artist, all in our show listings. You can chat with like-minded people on our messageboards, review recent shows or even talk about current events. Musicians can use our resource listings to find everything from a rehearsal space to a promoter or band to help them get their first out-of-town show. Promoters and venues can use the site to contact their customers and let them know about the newest act they have coming to town.
Why does LiveMusicVancouver.com work where other scene sites fail? To begin with, LiveMusicVancouver.com is and will always be free for everyone to use. While we do have some advertising options available for a small fee, the basic listing of your show, resource, or band is totally free. Also, we know that you, the user, know more about what’s going on out there than we do, so we set up the site in such a way that anyone can contribute or update site content. For example, if you know of a show that isn’t listed, just list it yourself: we put the power of being the site administrator in your hands.
What can you expect from us in the future? Our vision is a network of websites connecting music scenes all over, while still keeping the local feel and values of the “scene page”. Our hope is for each site to reflect the heart and soul of the scene it represents, and that their success will in turn inspire the community hosting the next up and coming site. So dig in and make yourself heard!
