Biltmore Cabaret (Unknown)
Microbrewery Steam Whistle hosts first ever UNSIGNED Vancouver – a concert in support of Canadian independent music artists. The Unsigned series started in Toronto four years ago, soon making its way to Calgary and Edmonton, with the idea of giving back and helping the growth of Canada’s indie music community. Thursday January 26 2012 is the first time that a series will be taking place in Vancouver at Biltmore Cabaret featuring Sidney York, The Ruffled Feathers, and Treelines. Also with special Guest DJ Jonny Grayston of East Van Soul Club. Doors open at 8pm and tickets are only $5 at the door with 100% of proceeds going back to the community through Music BC.

About the Bands:

Sidney York
From the opera stage and the orchestra pit into indie music, Sidney York is the proof that band geeks are cool. Her album “Apocalyptic Radio Cynic” is a creative experiment of mixing their ghosts of musical past with the current influences of their independent music contemporaries that infuses classical woodwind sonorities on an avant-garde foundation of upbeat and adorable indie pop. Sidney is a blend of “Metric’s indie guitar pop and the sexy playfulness of Hawksley Workman”, and is an act not to be missed.

The Ruffled Feathers
Gina Loes (vocals, guitar, ukulele), Charley Wu (keys, mandolin, guitar, vocals), Andrew Lee (trumpet, vocals), Sam MacKinnon (drums), Matty Jeronimo (bass, guitar) hail from all corners of North America. They are known for their combination of haunting female lead vocals, endearing harmonies, folk-inspired mandolin, and brazen horns. Taking inspiration from the likes of Beirut and Joanna Newsom, The Ruffled Feathers weave fables of revolutions, love stories, and cities away from home. Listeners expecting conventional guitar-driven indie-pop will find themselves swept into complex arrangements of trumpets and mandolins instead.

If the Weakerthans had a love child with the Gaslight Anthem, and Joel Plaskett raised that child; you would have something close to Treelines. Their music can be described as an unassuming brand of indie rock, often painting a lyrical picture of anything from the old west, to wintry northern landscapes. There’s a quality about this band that can only seem to be described as sounding nostalgic and ‘unintentionally Canadian‘; something you can’t really pinpoint.
