February Performers | Video Overview

by Michael Donley
February is set to be a truly great month of indie music at the cafe. Vancouver indie rockers In Medias Res start off the month Feb. 4th, Streaming Cafe being the first stop of their western Canadian/US tour. Michael Bernard Fitzgerald returns to the cafe, this time killing it with a brass section and also returning to our stage, with his band is Mike Edel from Vancouver Island. Stepping a bit out of our "folk" roots, The Keith Price Trio performs their jazz vibes on the Valentines weekend.
All four performing artists are definitely worth looking into. View videos from this months artists and as always if you can't make it out to the cafe for drinks and music, catch the shows streamed live @ http://www.streamingcafe.net/ - 7pm (pacific standard time)... it's free!

IN MEDIAS RES - Feb. 4th
Formed over a decade ago, Vancouver-based In Medias Res has risen from a fledgling act full of potential to one of the most lauded indie-rock bands in the city. Recently, the band has taken on a new shape, with principle songwriter and frontman Andrew Lee striking out on tour himself but the Streaming Cafe show sees the whole band their to perform a bit of a "stripped down" show. Going to be wicked!

Keith Price has thrown a indie flare to jazz. His last album covering well known indie and alternative bands such as Sufan Stevens and Nirvana. He was nominated for the TD Grand Prix Du Jazz and The Galaxie Rising Star awards at the 2010 Montreal International Jazz Fest.
It's a great way to spend your Valentines weekend.

Here's a clip of the trio performing their rendition of indie rock band Grizzly Beat "Ready Able".

MIKE EDEL - Feb. 18th
Mike Edel returns to the cafe having toured non stop for the last year. This time he brings his band with him for his performance. His album  "The Last Of Our Mountains" is definitely worth a listen!
Here's an official video "Turn the Lights on Bright" as well as solo performance from his apperance at Streaming Cafe.

We are very privileged to have MBF back at the cafe. Hailing from Calgary, Michael's indie-folk-pop music and personality have brought him a large following across Canada.
Here's his video "Suzie (I Love You)" as well as a performance from his apperance at Streaming Cafe in 2010.
