Fall has almost arrived and we are so excited to share with you some of our colourful plans for the future.  We are happy to announce the remolding of our upstairs into a brand new hang out spot that will be opening soon! Also we are making some changes to our website and e-store, so tickets will be available at Mosaic Books and Leo's Videos in Kelowna or give us a call and we will hold tickets for you at the front door. We, do however,  have the rest of your summer night planned with some amazing events and talent coming our way. I can't let the cat out of the bag for everything, but here is a quick sneak peak at what our fall schedule looks like:

Twisted Saturday Salsa: August 16th and 30th, Sept. 13th, Oct. 4th and 25th, Nov. 15th and Dec. 6th
Formosa Fusion: July 31st and August 14th (more to come we promise!)
Hypnotikk: August 1st and Sept. 12th
Pride Event: August 10th
The Matadors: Sept. 5th
Kalle Mattson: Sept. 18th
Rob Balston: Sept. 20th
Kinnie Star: Oct. 2nd

More to come soon, so stay tuned! You can check out all of these events on our website's event page http://www.thehabitat.ca/categories/Concerts/Upcoming-Events/

If you need to book tickets for a show call us at 250-763-9674 and leave us a message with your name and how many tickets you want.

We also have some opportunities for local artists, DJ's or musicians who want to get involved with our events. You can send us a bio about yourself and a video clip showing off your stuff to rsvp@thehabitat.ca


Tuesday June 17th's event will feature a performance by our favorite local heart throbs Van Damsel, and then showcase brand new, hot off the press videos by Van Damsel, Icelandia, Andrew Judah, Nuuka, Young Sparrows, Paperboy, Stage, and Matt Brevner. So much excitement packed into one night, I can’t even handle it.

We will also be getting a super special visit from one of the most talented, stylish, and handsome Kelowna-ite we know, Brandon Fletcher of Faked Potatoes. Since he ventured from Kelowna to pursue his passion as videographer extraordinaire in Vancouver, Brandon has been killing it in the film world and is snagging some amazing opportunities. For example, the new video he produced for Sebell’s “Till The Sun Burns Out” was featured on the Nylon Magazine website. Yes you read that right, NYLON! Tuesday will be the grand unveiling of Brandon’s newest video with Van Damsel for their song “Begins With A Return”. The guys road-tripped down to California to shoot the video, and considering how stoked and insanely jealous I was of their Instagram teaser pictures, I can’t even imagine how mind-blowing the final product will be!

Swing by Tuesday night to support all the local talent! Doors open at 7pm and because Public Records is the best, the show is free for our viewing pleasure!

Also, to get a taste of what you’ll be seeing on Tuesday, check out the video for Sebell’s “Till The Sun Burns Out” by Brandon Fletcher, and check out his website Faked Potatoes.

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.
