One of the perks of the summer months is that we are able to grab some great touring artists that are hitting the festivals and doing some "vacation touring". Once again we are very happy to present quality indie performers this August, so be sure to have a look through their videos, music and all their websites have to offer. Catch a show this month at the cafe and enjoy our new patio in person or if you live out of town check out the live stream - every Saturday night!
If you missed out on a show this last month have a look through clips from all our past shows.

Matt Epp & Adrian Glynn - AUG 25th - 7pm (PST)
Aug 25th is going to be an amazing show from two talented singer/songwriters.
Winnipeg's Matt Epp regards himself as a writer of songs that he describes as "soulful folk." "Matt Epp is simply one of the best of a this new generation of fine songwriters" - Gary Cristall, Vancouver Folk Music Festival 2010
In a music world littered with singer-songwriters, Adrian Glynn stands apart. The Vancouver-based troubadour takes any opportunity to defy convention: he has turned murder ballads into spell-binding, microphone-free serenades, and abandoned the standard rock band setup in favour of suitcase kick drums and clawhammer piano strings.
