On December 12th, I went to 333 and saw a few local bands. I had three major reasons for attending said show: first, I didn't know pop punk dudes Hermetic were still playing; second, it was one of my favourite Vancouver mainstays, Crystal Swells, last show; and third, it was to be my first time seeing a band called Malk.
It was a dark, rainy and blustery evening to go out and see a show but Rachael Yamagata is a show I would not miss. The Biltmore Cabaret is perfectly cozy enough for Rachael Yamagata’s music. October 21st's show did not disappoint. Rachael has some very competent and compelling artists touring with her for this tour and they delivered nicely.
There has been a lot of debate recently on whether rock and metal are dead. I'm just an unpaid metal DJ on a small campus/community radio station and my opinion is usually worth about what I'm being paid for it, but I listen to enough rock and metal and go to enough shows to say with confidence that these styles of are far from dead. The days of bands getting multimillion dollar corporate record deals may be a thing of the past (and I'm not sure that is necessarily a bad thing) but the music is far from dead. Rock is very much alive. Metal in particular is everything it ever was and more.
Dressed in Californian 70’s attire with disco balls hanging parallel to each other in opposite corners of the stage, Christopher Owens and his band cast a dizzying set that contrasted to the dingy, yet comfortable feeling of the Biltmore.
