CIVL Locals Invade Halifax

Friday, October 23rd, 2009

Almost a century ago, the Halifax harbour witnessed the largest accidental explosion in human history.  This event known as the Halifax Explosion happened in 1917 and it flattened the shoreline adjacent to the harbour section known as the Narrows.

Today a music festival annually pays tribute to this event two weeks after Canadian thanksgiving.  Entitled the Halifax Pop Explosion, this festival happens October 20-24 and will feature artists local to CIVL.  Making a strong showing for BC at the Halifax Pop Explosion are: Said the Whale, Hannah Georgas, Yukon Blonde, Carpenter, Dan Mangan, The Pack A.D., Japandroids, and You Say Party! We Say Die!

Yes it is far away, so how about closer to CIVL?  Here’s what’s happening in a town nearby:

CIVL Radio Approves New Programs

Monday, October 12th, 2009

CIVL Radio is a growing organization.  Almost daily CIVL Radio has new volunteers coming into the station here in Building C of UFV’s Abbotsford Campus.  Each comes in with their own ideas about how they can serve Abbotsford, Mission and Chilliwack with thought provoking and entertaining content.  The latest additions to the programming schedule are Lance Skullz, Dan Mack and Brian Billo.

JUST NOISE - Dan Mack - Tuesdays 4PM to 5PM

Host Dan Mack wants to convince you that punk rock in your backyard isn’t dead.  JUST NOISE will feature genres such as punk, ska, hardcore and related sub-genres.  A typical set-list could include bands such as Blue Monday, Revenge, Snapcase, The Real MacKenzies, SNFU, DOA, Against All Authority, Voodoo Glow Skulls, The Heatskores and Los Furios. Dan Mack also has a mandate to promote local shows and events related to these genres so expect the plenty of, but not exclusively, Canadian content.

RAGNAROCK - Brian Billo - Thursdays 6PM to 7PM

Ragnarock is a show from heights of Asgard.  The Norse gods refer to Ragnarok as the end of the world and Brian Billo deems Ragnarock the end of lame music.  Brain hopes to remind you of the great “alternative” bands that had thrilling songs starting in the early 90s period and beyond.  Also to play some the bands you know and love such as Radiohead, Sloan and the Beatles.  Brian will also delve into the high school scene and promote their talent, shows and events.  Thus ends the message from Odin’s son.  Behold RAGNAROCK on CIVL!

CIVL UNREST - Lance Skullz - Fridays Noon to 2PM

Do you have a sense of humour?  Do you not take yourself too seriously?  Do you want to have an enjoyable time?  Then listen to CIVL Unrest.  The host goes by the name of Lance Skullz and he is a rockstar who has lost it all and is trying to get it all back.  Lance has a mandate to bring a blend of hard-hitting, good-time music and talk that is accentuated by comedic and theatrics.  CIVL UNREST will also bring you news about local talent, events and a multitude of genres.  This is to include heavy metal, punk, rock, classical, funk, blues, rap, hip hop and just about anything else.

If you or someone you know is interested in volunteering at CIVL, come check us out in Building C of UFV’s Abbotsford Campus.  Or click here!
