We've got another great line-up of performers for the month of July. Joining us across the Canadian landscape from Vancouver to Nova Scotia, hoping the border to Boston and spanning the ocean to Germany & New Zealand. Every artist is definitely worth digging into, so have a look through the videos and links. Hope to see you at a show this month, either in person or the inter-web!
If you missed a performance from last month check out highlights in our past shows section.
We are very happy to have our friends Sarah Brendel back at the cafe. Sarah is singer-songwriter from Germany and she is celebrating the North American release of her new album "Before the Mountains". Unique voice, writing and talent.
Pat LePoidevin w/ van der Wel - July 14th - 7pm (PST)
If you've been following the Streaming Cafe for a while you'll know that we released a full length live album with Pat LePoidevin from his performance a year and a half ago (Pat LePoidevin live at Streaming Cafe). It's great to have him back! Pat brings his unique writing and performance style to the cafe on the 14th.
New Zealand's van der Wel opens the show and brings his rough-hewn folk songs to what is sure to be a packed house. He was an original member of indie/rock band Treelines when he lived in Kelowna.
The Abramson Singers w/Rachel Taylor - July 21st - 7pm (PST)
Vancouver native Leah Abramson, formerly of traditional folk bands Dyad, The Crooked Jades, and indie-rockers Octoberman enlisted her friends in some of Vancouver’s best-loved bands (members of Fond of Tigers, Dan Mangan’s band, Headwater) to play her haunting folk-noir originals as The Abramson Singers.
Leah (Abramson Singers) first caught my ears with her song "Fools Gold". A really great tune.
Rachel Taylor is a Boston based performing songwriter who spent just enough time at Berklee to make her dangerous and has spent enough time on the road to make her strong. She creates a blend of alternative folk and intelligent pop.
Wax Mannequin - July 28th - 7pm (PST)
Wax Mannequin has toured incessantly within Canada over the past six years (+ 30 times!), with more recent forays into Europe and Australia. He has built up a devoted fan base and released 6 albums that have all done really well on College Radio. He has toured with the likes of Geoff Berner, BA Johnston, Jenny Omnichord and the Burning Hell, to name a few, and has had the honor of opening up for such great acts such as The Arcade Fire, The Weakerthans, The Rheostatics, White Cowbell Oklahoma and many more...
Going to be a wicked show!
