The Sumner Brothers - SAT. OCT. 6th (early show)
The Sumner Brothers have opened for such acts as Sean Hayes (San Francisco), Hillstomp (Portland), The Deep Dark Woods (Saskatoon) and have shared the stage with Vancouver heavies C.R. Avery & Rich Hope. They tour regularly in Canada, the United States, and U.K. They have just released there 4th full length record "I'll Be There Tomorrow".

Rococode - SAT. OCT. 6th (late show)
Very sorry, due to unforeseen circumstances Rococode had to cancel this show.
And as all things begin and end with the music, Rococode has set to making exciting new pop.  Their debut album Guns, Sex & Glory is a little bit dark.  A little bit playful.  A little bit scary.  A little bit thoughtful. All whipped together with the help of Mother Mother’s Ryan Guldemond (co-producer), Andrew Braun (co-producer), engineer extraordinaire Shawn Penner (Mother Mother, Hannah Georgas, Elias) and mixer John Congleton (St. Vincent, Polyphonic Spree, The Walkmen).
Eventbrite - Krief (of The Dears) live at Streaming CafeTickets: $10 available @ Streaming Cafe

The Crackling - SAT. OCT. 13th
Kenton Loewen has seasoned himself as a touring musician having been on the road exstensively since 2000. Known mostly as a drummer (Dan Mangan, Mother Mother, Gordon Grdina Trio), The Crackling is his work in songwriting and his focus in guitar.
Tickets: FREE SHOW
Time: 7pm (PST)

Sunparlour Players w/guest Kalle Mattson - THURSDAY, OCT 18th 
Known for their intense celebration of a live show ("a must see!!" - CBC 3) the Sunparlour Players continue to bring their unique sound to the masses. Come out and see for yourself.

In the three short years since Kalle Mattson began writing songs, he and his band have grown from a Dylan-influenced solo act into a full on experimental folk-rock quintet. With two full-lengths already under his young belt, and a video for “Thick As Thieves” from the his second album “Anchors“ with over 1,000,000 views.

Eventbrite - Krief (of The Dears) live at Streaming CafeTickets: $15 available @ Streaming Cafe
Time: 8pm (PST)

Reuben and the Dark - SAT., OCT 18th 
Reuben and the Dark is the newest project from Calgary's Reuben Bullock. The quartet weaves together sounds and vocal harmonies that create an unexpected texture that finds ways of translating the confusing language of emotion into song and melody; sounding simultaneously ancient and uniquely contemporary. Recently brought to London by Mariead Nash (Manager of Florence and the Machine/Blood Orange), the band has returned from Europe with a new release in tow. Multi-instrumentalist Scott Munro (Chad van Gaalen, Ghostkeeper), drummer Distance Bullock (SAVK, Bring Fire), and guitarist Shea Alain round out the ensemble.
Tickets: FREE SHOW
Time: 7pm (PST)

Maurice w/ Matthew de Zoete - SAT., OCT 27th 
Maurice - Sometimes from bad luck or circumstance, amazing opportunities and transformations can arise. This is much the case for Maurice, a man, and a band, born and raised in Victoria BC Canada. From a major label signing, lofty expectations, and working closely with producer David Foster in Hollywood, to tumult and shattered dreams, out of a mishandled career path and naivety, Jean-Paul Maurice was able to pick up the pieces of a misdirected career path and take his music and art into his own hands.

Matthew de Zoete - Imagine Nick Drake cheering up a bit and living long enough to work with Beck, and you have an idea of how Matthew de Zoete sounds on his new album Colour Film. Produced by Les Cooper (Jill Barber, Good Lovelies, Meaghan Smith) and graced with beautiful harmonies by Julie Fader (Sarah Harmer, Great Lake Swimmers), Colour Film displays the confidence and strength of a young man hitting his stride.
Tickets: FREE SHOW
Time: 7pm (PST)
