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.

NCRC 2010 - Day 1

Tuesday, June 8th, 2010

Sydney Lamirand, Larry Portelance, Dustin Ellis and Angie Reid.

CIVL Radio Representatives from left to right: Sydney Lamirand, Larry Portelance, Dustin Ellis and Angie Reid.

So far so good here at the National Campus/Community Radio Conference on Gabriola Island. The hosts CKGI have done a great job making people feel welcome. There are people many people who have come from as far as Halifax, Toronto and more. It is great to see people enjoy our beautiful province for their first time.

In the morning we had a panel discussion entitled Radio New Media. This panel was made up of members from CBC Radio English, CBC Radio Three, Industry Canada and the National Campus and Community Radio Association. The representative from CBC Radio Three noted that their strategy is to “raise awareness for Canadian music.” They do this by allowing listeners to shape their own listening experience. Listeners can either listen to the regular broadcast or podcast with a host guiding the listener through what they feel is the best; or the listeners can create playlists on the website and check out music as they want. (Click here to get to CBC Radio Three.)

In the afternoon there were two panel discussions. One was “Advocacy, Activism and Balanced Journalism” in the and the other was called “Music Director Panel - Moving To Digital.” Each were full of distinguished members who are opinion leaders on the subject matter. In the “Balanced Journalism” panel there were Elizabeth May (Green Party), Kathryn Molloy (NGO), Chris Straw (CBC Radio), Paul Manly (documentary film producer), and Frieda Werden (CJSF/Groundwire). It was an interesting panel that was easily summed up by Elizabeth May who commented that “we desperately need a deep understanding of issues” and that “everyone is entitled to the own opinion, but not entitled to their own facts.”

Then the evening finished off with a special treat. Carolyn Mark of Mint Records (Vancouver) played a set to a small crowd of enthusiastic fans.
