Mano Meter - Deep & Tech-House From Germany (DJ Night)

9:30pm | Doors at 9:00pm

Tickets: $5 adv/dos
Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

Mano Meter started to play music at the age of 6, learning piano, trumpet, guitar and later drums. At 13, he started playing in several bands and started to produce his own songs in different styles of music.

Using the success of his album "Swinger" as a door opener in America, Mano Meter has also grooved straight into the hearts of Artist's like Parov Stelar, Paul Kalkbrenners wife Simina Grigoriu or Alle Farben.

Together with David Gerlach, who's kind of an wunderkind on the Piano, he has produced a song called "Polyphobia". You'll find a pearly, extremely fresh Groove which has already influenced dancefloors from Europe all the way to Burning Man!

Being fascinated from each others work, he finally made it happen to meet „Der Schmeisser“ in person: Two People being in love with music for almost all of their lives. Once they have started to combine their Groove and Harmony Skills, they have never really stopped. They'll always find a gap to work on upcoming live-sets or to play Marathon DJ-Sets.

Club A.R.M. – where both of them are Residents – has always been more then just a club - more like home. The tracks they are creating are inspired by this very special place. Produced with the vibes they caught up in the club, they always have the final rehearsal back there. They pack up all it's special athmosphere, the creative team and of course the guests. Meanwhile you'll find both of them playing as residents here.

Amanda Winterhalter CD Release

7:30pm | Doors at 6:00pm

Tickets: $10 adv/dos
Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

Writing and performing music is where Amanda feels most at home and in her element. It’s on the stage where she finds her most powerful means to connect with people – through sound and story. As she studied literature and creative writing, eventually earning a graduate degree in teaching English, stories began to fuel her songwriting: stories passed down from voices and pages and traditions; stories of experience, reaching into places that hold the promises of the people we wanted to become and the strengths we hoped to have. Stories spoke songs to her. These songs began to take on the indefinite edges of the unavoidable aches in life, of desire and flirtation, of the beauty of all the uncomfortable paradoxes we carry.

En Canto // The Robin Layne Band

8:00pm | Doors at 6:30pm

Tickets: $10 advance/ $12 dos
Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

A multi-ethnic, female-led seven-piece, En Canto’s world pop music—a combination of forró, samba, and choro-inspired originals and re-imagined covers of classic Brazilian hits—commands attention and inspires movement. "We love this music because of its compositional brilliance, its original grooves, and its revolutionary nature ..." Accordionist Jamie Maschler, explains.

Playing primarily in North American venues, En Canto currently channels its fierce independence into challenging stereotypes while also helping audiences expand their comfort zones. “We make people dance,” as drummer Adam Kozie puts it “We routinely open our concerts to a room full of shy, awkward faces, and we close them to a sweat-drenched melee of bodies and smiles. We experience real joy when we play these songs, and people feel that, and they respond in kind, regardless of whether they understand the words or know the ‘right’ dance moves.

The music of the Robin Layne Band evokes memories of summer days full of adventure and playfulness. With roots in jazz, Latin and African traditions this groove heavy ensemble delivers music that will uplift your spirit, put a smile on your face and take your ears on a journey into the stratosphere. Since forming in 2015 the band has been filling dance floors around Vancouver and performing at festivals across BC and beyond. Festival highlights from 2016 include The Vancouver International Jazz Festival, Carnaval Del Sol, Blessed Coast, and Burning Man. They are currently working on their debut album to be released in late spring/early summer of 2017.

Tony Furtado

7:30pm | Doors at 6:30pm

Tickets $15 adv/$18 dos
Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

Very few musicians of any stripe so personify a musical genre as completely as Tony Furtado embodies Americana roots music. Tony is an evocative and soulful singer, a wide-ranging songwriter and a virtuoso multi-instrumentalist adept on banjo, cello-banjo, slide guitar and baritone ukulele who mixes and matches sounds and styles with the flair of a master chef (he’s also an accomplished sculptor, but that’s another story). All of the music of America is in Tony’s music. Relix hit the nail on the head when writing of Tony: “True talent doesn’t need categories.”

Tony has performed throughout the world at top venues and appeared at such prestigious music festivals as the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, High Sierra Music Festival, Jazz Aspen, Kerrville Folk Festival, Strawberry Music Festival, Winnipeg Folk Festival, Sisters Folk Festival, San Jose Jazz Festival and countless others. “I love playing live,” he says. “All my energy is focused on the love of playing music and rolling with the moment. It’s a give and take from the audience to the stage, and back. And the music that is created is something that otherwise might not occur without that flow.”

Tony has recorded and produced almost a dozen CDs for various labels such as Dualtone, What Are Records and Funzalo Records. Tony enthusiastically describes his newest CD, The Bell, as “the most personal of my career.” Released this summer on his own YousayFurtado Records, The Bell is an important release for several reasons: it represents a return to Tony’s banjo-playing roots, with the banjo and cello-banjo more prominent than in recent years; the original songs concern such weighty themes as the loss of his father, the birth of his son and his own creative rebirth with the move to a new record label and management team; his working band is featured; and, most important of all, this is the first album in a long time on which Tony had complete artistic control. It’s his music, done his way.

Ben de la Cour // Alberta // Bright Whites

7:30pm | Doors at 6:30pm

Tickets $10 adv/$12 dos
Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

Influenced by giants such as Townes Van Zandt and Warren Zevon as much as by bands like Slayer, Nick Cave and The Gun Club, Ben de la Cour has somehow managed to meld all of these influences naturally into his musical canon, delivering a uniquely modern, haunting and darkly humorous sound that is all his own. Songs filled with tales of substance abuse, murder and mental illness sit in perfect juxtaposition with playful lightheartedness and an ever-present glimmer of hope. However, upon closer inspection, darkness almost always wins…an unlikely hero, but one that suits de la Cour.
