If you missed our Unsigned Vancouver on April 11th, here’s how it went:
For those of you not yet familiar with Unsigned, it’s an ongoing concert series that showcases Canada’s indie music talent. Hosted in Toronto, Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver each edition of UNSIGNED features three Canadian artists with all of the ticket sales going back to the arts community through organizations such as Artists’ Health Centre Foundation and Music BC.
We are committed to the future of this wonderful community and to date UNSIGNED has featured over 80 independent Canadian acts and have raised over $70,000 for local artists. Some of the great indie acts to partner with us have included: The Rural Alberta Advantage, Austra, The Darcys, Young Empires, Rich Aucoin, The Balconies, Woodhands, Dinosaur Bones, Lioness, Parallels, Make Your Exit, Hooded Fang and Kidstreet.
Cheers to supporting independent Canadian musicians!
