Nothing But Thieves

Vogue Theatre

Vancouver


Nothing But Thieves made a triumphant return to Vancouver on Friday now, playing to a large and enthusiastic crowd, who were ready to see the band return to the city for the third time in as many years.

 Vocalist Conor Mason recalled playing in front of around 300 people in their last visit to the venue a couple of years ago. Off the back of that visit the band packed out the smaller Imperial on their last visit to the city. This time around the Vogue was packed and ready to party with the boys from Southend.

Wardruna

Vogue Theatre

vANCOUVER


Traditional instruments, a crowd of Norsemen and women, and mystical music based on the runes can only mean one thing – Wardruna are in town.

Founded by Einar Kvitrafn Selvik in 2003, Wardruna is a Norwegian music group that produce traditional music based on Norse traditions.

With three albums under their belt they have managed to carve out an international fanbase thanks in part to the show Vikings.  Their music featured heavily in the show, and helped their third album, Runaljod Ragnarok, reach top spot in the Billboard World Albums chart after its release in 2016.

Eivør

Vogue Theatre

vANCOUVER


We do not get a lot of artists from the Faroe Islands coming through Vancouver, so having one pass through with the level of talent that Eivør possesses was a rare treat..

 

Since releasing her debut album at the age of 16, Eivør has continued to innovate and push musical boundaries. That first outing, the self-titled, Eivør Pálsdóttir comprised a collection of classic Faroese ballads. Since then she has recorded jazz, orchestral, and rock albums in both her native Faroese and English and has received critical acclaim not only in the Faroe Islands, but across Scandinavia.

The Proclaimers

The Vogue
VANCOUVER


There was a decidedly Celtic feel at the Vogue Theatre on Sunday night, and the influx of kilts, Scottish flags, and football jerseys could only mean one thing – The Proclaimers were back in town.

Even the weather helped set the scene, with a day of rain heading into a gloomy evening. Just type of evening to stay inside and listen to some (generally) upbeat sounds, from two of Scotland’s finest.

Marianas Trench

Marianas Trench closed out their summer schedule in style in front of an adoring and enthusiastic home town crowd at the PNE in Vancouver on Saturday night.

The rock gods must have been smiling, as a day of miserable weather miraculously cleared up ahead of the show, although I don’t think anything would have damped the enthusiasm for this local four-piece.

Wilson Phillips

American vocal group Wilson Phillips wowed the crowd the PNE Vancouver last night.  The trio, most famous for their 1990 hit Hold On played an entertaining show comprising self-penned songs alongside several we received covers.

Wilson Philips, who are made up of the children of Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys and John and Michelle Phillips of the Mama’s and the Papas had a relatively short career, disbanding in 1993.  They have however stood the test of time, reuniting twice since then, and are still popular today.

Centre of the Performing Arts – Vancouver

Toto kicked of the North America leg of the 40 Trips Around the Sun tour in Vancouver on Monday night. It was a hot a steamy night in Vancouver, and unfortunately the venue, The Centre of the Performing Arts in Vancouver, struggled with the A/C for a while at the start of the show, or maybe it was just the excitement of the audience creating the heat.
