CIVL Radio To Host A Concert Series Called The CIVL Stage

Tuesday, August 17th, 2010

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

ABBOTSFORD, BC - CIVL Radio has partnered with the UFV Student Union Society (SUS) and the Cascade Newspaper to host a concert series called the CIVL Stage at Casey’s on Campus. The first night of the the CIVL Stage will be on Friday Sept 3 in which Abbotsford’s The Progressive Thinker and Women of Britain will perform along with Vancouver’s Petroleum By-Product.

The CIVL Stage will help keep the independent music torch alive after the Atangard Community Project re-ignited it with the Jam In Jubilee. After seeing the Jam In Jubilee wrap-up on Aug 12, new CIVL Radio Station Manager Aaron Levy said that “it was great to see what’s happening in the local music scene.”

A newcomer to Abbotsford, Levy goes on to say that despite the success of the Jam In Jubilee, “there still seems to be a common concern within the local music scene about the lack of venue space in the Abbotsford. The CIVL Stage is about getting other student organizations, such as the SUS and the Cascade Newspaper, on board with addressing this concern at Casey’s on Campus.”

At the CIVL Stage some things will be different from the Jam In Jubilee. There will be a five dollar admission to each concert and it will be a nineteen-plus event. CIVL Radio’s Promotions Director Larry Portelance says “the CIVL Stage is an event for and by young adults who don’t mind their music a bit unpolished and gritty. If one is familiar with !earshot campus and community charts, then one will be familiar with the kind of music the CIVL Stage is trying to promote.”

Portelance also said “the performers for the CIVL Stage will range from indie-pop to new-wave, pop-punk to lo-fi. The aim is to give the students of UFV and members of the community two rock and roll shows that will also give them something to talk about before Dis-O hits the Green on Sept 23.”

On the headliner for Saturday Sept 18, Portelance says “I just cannot say who it is. I must respect the performer’s request to not announce it until Sept 3. But stay tuned to our various social media presences or check out our CIVL Stage website for more information.”

The CIVL Stage was made possible with contributions from SUS, the Cascade Newspaper and CIVL Radio. These events will also have a dedicated team of student volunteers to make it happen.

Jam In Jubilee Is Jam Packed With Talent

Saturday, June 26th, 2010

Click on logo for the facebook group.

Click here for the facebook group.

Abbotsford, BC - Every Thurs evening from July 8 to Aug 12, Jubilee Park will be the scene of great local independent music performers including local stars The Magician and the Gates of Love (TMATGOL), Oh No! Yoko (ON!Y) and You Say Party! (YSP!).

___________________________________________________________________________

Just go ahead and google the phrase “you say party” and you will find a plethora of positive content for the dance-punk group called YSP! Hailing from Abbotsford and even still living in town, YSP! has had appearances on CBC Radio One’s The Q, MTV Canada, National Post, Abby News, Exclaim and so much more. They have also toured the world spreading the positive vibes that Abbotsford has to offer and YSP! has made the long list for the Polaris Music Prize.

On a more sombre note, you will also find nuggets of less rad news such as the recent loss of Devon Clifford who who is no longer with us. The reappearance by YSP! at Jam In Jubilee will be as Devon would have wanted it to be, which is the continuance of YSP! albeit with a slightly altered name.

YSP! will be performing at the Jam In Jubilee on Thurs, July 29 at 9 p.m. Click here for a link to the facebook event.

Oh No! Yoko (ON!Y)

ON!Y is gaining notoriety in the lower mainland from exposure on CBC Radio One’s program On The Coast (click here); at the performing arts festival Music Waste in Vancouver; in Discorder Magazine (UBC’s campus radio magazine); and within the local media.

One of the raddest things about the fine lads of ON!Y is that they are nearing their graduation from highschool. It will be quite the triggering moment for the already blossoming music careers of ON!Y. So we all should keep our eyes peeled for the many accomplishments to come from ON!Y.

Catch ON!Y live at Jam In Jubilee on the final Thursday night, Aug 12 at 9 p.m. Click here for the facebook event.

The Magician and the Gates of Love (TMATGOL)

TMATGOL also have been gaining noteriety in the lower mainland and they have UFV students within their crew. Vocalist and creative force behind TMATGOL, Nathan John Moes is also an alumni of UFV. Conrad Dykman, who plays drums for TMATGOL, is also a student of UFV.

As for the notoriety of TMATGOL, they placed third at SHiNDiG 2009 which is the annual battle of the bands that CiTR (UBC’s campus radio station) hosts. TMATGOL has also had some coverage in Discorder magazine; appeared on !earshot, the campus and community radio charts; and even played to a packed audience at Casey’s on Campus for the Cannot Not Visual Arts 2010 Graduation Gala.
