|SCENE AND HEARD showcases the independent music scene here in Vancouver.
With over 36,000+ artists, boasting more than 150,000+ tracks, the CBC Music/CBC Radio 3 web site is the absolute ultimate authority, and the home, of independent music in Canada. With that massive library along with tools for members (free to join!), we’re taking advantage of what they’ve set up by bringing you a fresh batch of music every week featuring local groups who have tracks (entire albums, even!) on the R3 site.
250 Playlists! That’s 250 weeks of music and awesome ways to start your Monday off…
Whenever we ask artists for playlists, we let them bend the rules on ‘Vancouver’ artists, as so many awesome musicians play here a LOT (and have even relocated to Vancouver since we started the playlists 5 years ago).So, we’re celebrating 250 with the “250” area code…an ode to the artists that grace our city so often with their presence, and make their way into our playlists.
Click the images below to hear what we’ve got in store for you…and if you have a suggestion for another artist from the “250”, tweet it to us and we’ll add it in.
