MUSIC WASTE IS ON!
Music Waste is an independent music festival that takes place every June in Vancouver. It began 15 years ago as a protest against corporately sponsored, industry oriented, 'pay-to-apply' festivals, and has since grown into the most interesting music event in the city. Music Waste is locally oriented, with the great majority of bands playing being from Vancouver. This year over 100 bands will play at 25 shows throughout East Vancouver. Passes are only $15! If you find yourself in Vancouver in the next week/weekend, go hang out and get a crash course in all things Vancouver. Lucky for me, I'll be killing the rest of this week in Vancouver. Hopefully I can bring back some new music for the show.
