Since I profiled In Medias Res last week I have received wonderful leads and information about some upcoming shows to check out around Vancouver. This has prompted a return of my shamefully underused ‘Music Monday‘ series.
Fresh off her Australian tour and prior to returning home to the East Coast, Carmen will be playing a free showcase at The Railway Club tomorrow, January 11th, 2011 from 7:00pm until 8:00pm. Her forthcoming album Waitin’ and Seein’ will be available January 25th, 2011.

Vancouver locals Andy Bishop, Colin Jones, Bruce Ledingham, JP Doucet and Shaunn Watt will celebrate the release of their new album Enter The Sun Gods with Adelaide and Lord Beginner at the Biltmore on January 13th. Doors open at 8:00pm and cover is $10.

West Coast Pop!
Vancouver is Awesome and 100.5 The Peak have teamed up for West Coast Pop!, a new concert series at the Red Room with a low-dough price of $10.50. The showcases will run from February 19th until May 14th, 2011 and include acts such as We Are the City, The Dudes, You Say Party, and Kyprios.
Should you have a favourite up-and-coming local or Canadian act that you would like to see featured, please feel free to contact me using the subject line ‘Music Monday’.
