CONTEST – Transmission 2008, Vancouver BC
Aigin LarkiTransmission is an event held in Vancouver every year whose mandate is, in wonderfully business-y speak, to showcase “export-ready artists and business-ready professionals”. I don’t actually know what that means, but from a fan’s POV, it’s also an opportunity to catch a passel of acts from both Canada and abroad who are on the verge… of being exported, apparently.
This year’s edition takes place on two stages over two nights at the Storyeum in Vancouver’s Gastown next week on December 4 and 5. The lineup for the first night features Woodhands, Ubiquitous Synergy Seeker, Final Flash, The Pet Conspiracy, Pacifika, Wendy McNeill, Radio Radio and Winter Gloves. Those attending the second night will be treated to performances from The Hong Kong Blood Opera, Bison B.C., Beast, Elliott Brood, Courtney Wing, Alex Cuba and Wildbirds & Peacedrums.
Courtesy of Atomique Productions, I’ve got two pairs of passes to give away for each night. To enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to go to Transmission (night one or two)” and your full name and mailing address in the body and have these off to me by midnight, November 30. Vancouverites, don’t say I never do anything for you left coasters.
