David Beckingham: Alive at Home (Plot Loss)

April 25 @ 3pm PDT / 6pm EDT
Beckingham continues his three-week stand, playing new tunes that are headed for a recording he’ll likely call Plot Loss. “They chronicle a fairly challenging time in my life, mind and heart which I am sure some of you can relate to,” he says. “The songs are raw, dark, occasionally funny and brand-spanking-new, so this will be their maiden voyage.” 

Sunday, April 26


Jill Barber, "Chances"

April 26 @ 12pm PDT / 3pm EDT
The Vancouver jazz-folk artist will play her entire 2008 album Chances, a smoky, romantic record about love, solo and acoustically. She’ll also share anecdotes from the time spent writing and making the record and maybe taking a question or two.



April 26 @ 12pm PDT / 3pm EDT
Singer-songwriter Michel continues his witty weekly wonder from a new location in his home, tune in this week to see where he is. Newly added are themes for each gig—no two shows could possibly be the same. Requests encouraged!


Jacques Russell Trio

April 26 @ 2:30pm PDT / 5:30pm EDT
It’s not exactly the whole trio for this social distanced gig—lead singer and storyteller Michel Neray will represent the trio, which plays an eclectic mix of blues, jump blues, trucker blues, jazz, and pop. “For a good time at home,” says Neray, “come wag your tail with me.”


Phöenix Lazare

April 26 @ 4pm PDT / 7pm EDT
The Canadian singer-songwriter and Berklee College grad promises “a warm blanket of sound” via her vocal melodies and sweet guitar. Lazare tells bittersweet stories of devotion and defeat—with a dash of social justice—delivered with confidence and empathy.


Veda Hille haunts The Cultch

April 26 @ 6pm PDT / 9pm EDT
Venerable Canadian folk singer Hille was supposed to be working on a new record in Berlin; instead she’s been spending afternoons at East Vancouver’s The Cultch, an historic theatre built in 1913. She’ll play a Sunday night piano party on the theatre’s beautiful Baldwin.
