Hot Art Wet City on Main Street launched an exhibition that serves as a brilliant tribute to Canadian Environmentalist David Suzuki who is turning 79 this year.
V.I.A. visited the exhibition on the eve of the opening and discovered an impressive salon style hang of close to 50 artworks. Many of the exhibited artworks celebrate Suzuki’s activist role, whilst others present – as Hot Art Wet City says – the man, the myth and the legend.

I hope you made it to at least one of the two Dan Mangan and co. performances this past week, as it was a spectacular show, including Astral Swans, and Hayden. This week most of the music world descends on Austin, Texas for SXSW, but there are still several awesome shows here in town to be seen…
The coolest taxidermy happening in the City of Vancouver right now might very well be the only taxidermy: Gabrielle Whiteley’s Owl and Windsor which she’s been selling at markets around town and directly out of her studio. The CBC’s Elaine Chau produced an insightful piece about the artist and her work (which is not for the faint of heart!) which you should listen to HERE.

With thousands of artists, and hundreds of thousands of tracks, the CBC Music/CBC Radio 3 website 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.
After showing up on artist playlists for the last few years, we finally asked Limblifter to create one of their own!
Conveniently we timed the playlist with their show this week at the Biltmore on Thursday, with Invisible Ray and The Passenger, and the release of their new album “Pacific Milk”. Click the images below to hear the playlist, and click HERE to get tickets to the show.
