Show cancellation announcement from The Living:
It is with heavy hearts that we announce we must cancel this show. Our wonderful bassist was in a car accident earlier this week, and it turns out the resulting injuries are severe enough that he needs to take a short break from playing.
If any of you have already bought tickets, you may use them for admission to the rescheduled CD release (where you'll still receive the free download card), or return them for a refund. We will be doing an online release of the new album this week (keep an eye on our page for updates), and the physical CDs will be unveiled at the rescheduled show (which we are working on booking right now).
This was a terribly difficult decision for us. We deeply apologize for any inconvenience or disappointment and hope you understand.
What happens when a group of young, classically trained musicians get together to merge their love of classical music with their love of genre pushing classic rock: The Living. At once bombastic and eloquent, this Vancouver powerhouse careens through genres, taking listeners on a kaleidoscopic sonic journey.
At the centre of the six-piece are Mike Bells’ dramatic vocal delivery and Elyse Jacobson’s dizzying violin wizardry. With keyboards, electric guitars, viola, cello, bass and drums rounding out the sound, this is maximalist genre mashing taken to epic proportions.
Maria in the Shower
Maria in the Shower is Vancouver's legendary folk cabaret band - wandering minstrels, entertainers cut from old cloth, storytellers traveling often and gathering tales as they go. The 4-piece band, hailing from deep inside the creative beating heart of East Van’s artistic community, is known for their ever-evolving collaborations with the city’s theatre, dance and visual arts scene. That spirit of adventure, plus years of dogged hard work, have earned them the status of the darlings of the lunatic fringe od Vancouver’s community-driven art scene.
Maria in the Shower is a place where all music comes to play. Swing, samba, ballads, rockabilly, blues, gypsy soul and more... If Tim Burton could have his way with "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" you would taste something like the fabulous delights of Maria in the Shower.
