Tune in this spring, things are about to get Heavy! Check out some of the upcoming shows. We have lots of people asking for more metal.

March 21st, 2014 - Abandon All Ships

After completely turning the modern music scene upside down when they burst onto the scene in 2010, Abandon All Ships are back, with their new hard-hitting album ‘Infamous’. (July 3rd)

April 4th, 2014- The Wild & Shreddy Kreuger


Former bandmates of the successful independent act, Bucknife, Dylan Villain (guitar/vocals), Lucas ‘Boozus’ Jancikic (bass/vocals) and Rowdy Rick Riegs (drums) amalgamated to create a sound that is properly described as “the bastard son of AC/DC and ZZ Top”.

April 16th, 2014 - Ninja Spy

Ninjaspy is known for their energetic, crazy, and entertaining live shows. In a live review, CordMag said "[n]ot a speck of the stage was left untouched by this band’s chaotic feet." CordMag also said "...while I listened to and got somewhat scared by the samples I’d heard that afternoon," "Ninjaspy is really not my type of music... but they bloody well are entertaining."

Tickets will be available at Leo's Video (2680 Pandosy St) & Mosaic Books (411 Bernard Avenue)
Last Wednesday we were super lucky to have The Elwins live! Not only that, but all of our very talented Open Mic performers got to open for them! Did you make it down?
If the next time you are going through our awesome list of events and you come across a band you have never heard, take a few minutes and follow a link. They could become your new obsession. It's never too late to become a fan.  Come out and support them live, buy a shirt or an album and probably even meet them. You know if they are playing here they are amazing.
Check out Hollerado's live Video  who are currently making their way across the country on their So It Goes Tour. See them here on November 13th with The Zolas!

Wow! We're announcing Habitat's third Artist in Residence for The Jail Bird Residency Series 3 and March's Jail Bird Art Show 3: Alexandra Tremblay!

Alexandra is a mixed media artist who has been living in Kelowna for the past 2 years. Originally from the prairies, she had been living in the Ouest for many years where she pursued a Diploma in Fiber Arts from the Kootenay School of the Arts, having graduated with honours in 2010. The Fibre Arts program consisted of the study of : felting, dye technology, patern drafting, weaving, silver smithing, design, and drawing.

For everyone that submitted, thank you so much! Your work is truly incredible and has shown us the wide variety of talent in our local pool.

Look forward to Alexandra turning Habitat into her private art studio over the next few weeks as she brings her love of felting (and a limitless variety of other materials) to Habitat's walls. Come to the Jail Bird: Project Reveal on February 7th, 2013 will give you a chance to see the beginning of Tremblay's residency and what to look forward to for the Jail Bird Art Show 3 on March 16th to see her completed work!

Here is a sample of Tremblay's body of work:

Benjamin Francis Leftwich’s upcoming North American tour has been postponed due to a family matter. The tour was set to begin tomorrow night in San Francisco, California, and dates are currently being rescheduled for February 2013. Once new dates are announced all tickets will be honored at future dates and refunds will be available at point of purchase for any canceled dates. Please check for further updates on benjaminfrancisleftwich.com.

A fast rising British singer-songwriter, Benjamin will release a new EP, In The Open on November 20th on Vagrant. In The Open features Ben’s ethereal vocals gliding over a wistful lament which proves that Ben was not just one of the most compelling new artists of last year, but is an enduring songwriting force. There is a haunting beauty to his vocal that is unmistakable and uniquely his own. Many can sing, few have a voice – and the latter is true for Benjamin Francis Leftwich.

Any tickets you have already purchased will be accepted at the make-up date early next year.

I just got wind of a few music videos by The Royalty, this one in particular was only posted 26 days ago and is only about 2,600 views from breaking 100,000. More importantly, it gets our feet taping!

See The Royalty with Bend Sinister on November 3rd.

Awesome Okanagan presents in collaboration with Loyal Hair Therapy "Wild Heart" the 2012 F/W Fashion Show/Fundraiser with heart, raising money for H.O.P.E. Outreach!

We're very excited to be able to announce Habitat's second Artist in Residence for The Jail Bird Residency Series 2 and November's Jail Bird Art Show 2: M. Klasen!

We're constantly blown away by the quality of submissions we receive and Matt's use of colour and shapes in a modern graffiti style excites us greatly!

For everyone that submitted, thank you so much! Your work is truly incredible and has shown us the wide variety of talent in our local pool. We're excited to feature support for Matt in three entrants from the The Jail Bird Residency Series 1 & 2 because you're all so talented!

Look forward to M. Klasen turning Habitat into his private art studio over the next 4 weeks as he brings his flavor to the interior. Don't forget to come to the official Jail Bird Art Show 2 to see his completed work!

Here is a sample of Klasen's body of work:











I am so thrilled that Mike Edel's music video for "The Country Where I Came From" is finally officially out. I had the opportunity to watch it synced to his live performance at RockRidge Canyon as part of the PEAK Performance Project back in late August/early September. There was something about the time of the week (complete lack of sleep too I suppose), his performance and the stirring visual quality of the video that hit me. I was very much emotionally affected by the whole experience.

I was responsible for the video portion of his performance so I actually had the mp4 of the video, I kept it (sorry Mike!) and loaded it into iTunes so I could watch it at home on AppleTV at the end of that week. He asked that it not get shown anywhere outside of camp since it wasn't being officially released until today, so keep in mind I've had this gorgeous beast in my possession for an entire month already and haven't been able to share it, until now! Watch this video. Then watch it again.

See Mike with Jordan Klassen and Joshua Smith on October 25th.


Due to scheduling conflicts Windmills will not be at the October 18th Aidan Knight show (Aidan is traveling with support and will be just fine ;) ) and Australia's New Empires have been replaced by Alvarez Kings on the November 10th Hey Ocean show.

Both shows will remain awesome. Here's proof, get a new download from Aidan now!
