--------------------The River & The Road--------------------
The River and The Road is a band built on risking new beginnings and telling their stories along the way.
After crossing an ocean, leaving a hemisphere, and a long stint hitch hiking across the American Southwest, singer/guitarist Andrew Phelan made his way to Chicago with the looming need to cross into Canada for work. He had two flight choices—Montreal or Vancouver—and flying west was cheaper. Once there, he found a healthy contest in singer/banjo player Keenan Lawlor, who had been playing around Vancouver for the previous eight months. Keenan himself had moved from across the water to forge a new path, but in his case, it was the Georgia Straight instead of the Pacific Ocean. At first the two often butted heads, seeing in each other the greatest competition for the attention of East Vancouver’s open mic audience. Competition turned quickly to collaboration, busking, and living on scraps together to make their musical existence possible. After several months as a duo, and experimentation with additional instrumentation, they recorded their debut eponymous twelve-track album. In the spring of 2012, the band emerged as a dynamic four-piece with the addition of bassist John Hayes and drummer Cole George.
In their short history as a band, The River and The Road has blossomed from a busking duo to an internationally touring quartet. Winter 2013 saw the boys working to stitch their name into the musical fabric of Australia, most notably in Sydney and Melbourne. With a long list of dates behind them, and many new fans to show for it, the band is returning home to Vancouver. They are presently filling their summer calendar with North American festival and tour dates, with coast-to-coast aspirations.
Tenacity, heart, and above all else, a gripping live performance, the band has no plans of slowing down. A spirited folk form of sincere storytelling, mixed with strong harmonies, heavy percussion breakdowns, and dynamic arrangements, embodies the sound of The River and The Road.
Clever, chameleonic, catchy and complex: so are a few ways to describe Young Pacific’s distinct and exciting fusion of musical influences ranging from classic to contemporary, and everywhere in between.
Formed in 2009, Vancouver’s Young Pacific has shared the stage with Canadian favourites including the Arkells, the Zolas and Bend Sinister, to name a few. Working with producers Tom Dobrzanski & Elisa Paengsaeng (Monarch/Vertical) and Andrew Spindor & Will Watson (Habitat/Green Couch), Young Pacific has achieved spots on legendary stages including Live at Squamish, Rifflandia, and the Rio & Rickshaw Theatres. These enormous opportunities have established them as a fresh musical act with a solid fanbase and a constant desire to grow.
Building on echoes of Fleet Foxes, Tame Impala and The War on Drugs, Young Pacific strive to push pop music into undiscovered realms, leaving boundaries and rules behind in the static. It's a meticulously crafted, restless wash of colour, melody and lyricism that keeps musicians and non-musicians alike on the edge of their seats. Young Pacific takes you down the shape-shifting trails of psychedelia and prog, cradles you with intimate tales from folk’s familiar fires, surprises you with fervent dynamics, and makes you smile all at the end of it with a heavy dollop of unadulterated pop.
Hailing from the mists of the Pacific Northwest, Young Pacific is a celebration of nature. A celebration of time, youth, and the beloved yarns of yesteryear. And the purpose of the uni

A 90's HIP HOP PARTY
With DJs FLIPOUT and HAYZ spinning your favorite old school hip hop tracks!
Tickets available at http://tinyurl.com/cv5n4lv **In Stores Soon**
------------------------- FLIPOUT! -------------------------
A highlight of the Vancouver music scene, DJ Flipout is best known from the Beat 94.5, a gig where he remixes the hits live in studio for The 5 O’clock Traffic Jam. But don’t let the respectability of a steady job fool you, this Vancouver DJ is an internationally renowned music buff whose eclectic and cosmopolitan style has won him many local and national MC and DJ competitions.
For two years, Flip’s all hip-hop mix show with Jay Swing was named "Best Mixshow in Canada" by the Canadian Urban Music Industry. Oh, and if that doesn’t impress, he’s also been distinguished as an honorary member of the Universal Zulu Nation by hip-hop Godfather Afrika Bambaataa.
When Flipout’s not working the club scene or sounding off over the airwaves, you might find him on tour. So far, he’s DJed for names like Raekwon (Wu-Tang) (http://vimeo.com/15494494), Talib Kweli, and Jin the MC. Flipout has also opened for Jay Z, Biz Markie, Grandmaster Flash, Nelly, Ice Cube, Lil Jon, and Jermaine Dupri, just to name a few.
By working with notable DJs, including DJ Vice, DJ Starting from Scratch, DJ Spider, Questlove (the Roots), DJ Kemo, DJ Eleven, Team Canada, eH!, and Ali Shaheed Muhammed (A Tribe Called Quest/Lucy Pearl), Flipout has cultivated a knack for combining unexpected music to create stimulating soundtracks that boast a rich and complex sound.
He decided put his skills to the test as a contestant in the 2010 Red Bull 3 Style Competition. An electrifying sequence at the Commodore in Vancouver advanced Flipout to the National Finals in Toronto.
That same year, he was also nominated in four different categories at the STYLUS DJ Awards, including Radio Mixshow of the Year, Club DJ of the Year, Club MC of the Year and Vancouver DJ of the Year, which he won. In 2011, Flipout was named Favorite Local DJ (Westender Best of Vancouver Awards), and he took the coveted title of Top 40 DJ of the Year (Clubvibes Vancouver Nightlife Awards) in 2012.
With a proven ability to keep his finger on what’s current, Flipout has performed throughout Canada and across the globe in hotspots like Spain, Australia, and Puerto Rico.
Listen as he navigates the tectonic gaps in musical tastes to deliver the tunes that make crowds flipout.
