Mon. March 16th 2015 Lacey-Lou Tapas Lounge (All Ages)
$10.00 at the door only.
Presented by: Mighty Speck Records
Lacey-Lou Tapas Lounge Inc. is quickly becoming a favourite live music venue for musicians and fans alike in Victoria. And we would like to keep it that way! Due to much higher than projected necessary renovation costs, the venue needs our help to get through the next few lean months. So we are putting on a FAB FUNDRAISER! 16 acts on March 16 (1 to 2 songs each). Please come out to support this fab venue and all of these fab artists...

(in alphabetical order...)

Adventures of Nightgirl
Auto Jansz
Benedict Beattie
Chris Andres Authentic Outlaw Country
Danton Jay Music
Dave Cormier Band (duo)
James Kasper & The True Vine
Jill Cooper
Jonny Miller
Little Nectar
Mike Demers
Nic Whitehouse
The Rolling Capones
Simon de Laat

$10 @ the door (and there will be a tip jar to add to donations for those feeling a little extra generous, but no obligation). Even if you are a fan of only ONE of these bands, please come out and show your support!

Even if you have never heard of any of them and you've been invited to seven house parties and two raves that same night and you're still recovering from an all-night binge the night before and your sinuses are acting up, do us a favour and come out anyway, will ya.

Even if you've spent the past decade holed up in a bunker due to your delayed reaction to the Y2K scare, and this is the first time you've checked your facebook since first going underground, and you're still groggy and disoriented and you have a lot of laundry to do...COME OUT ANYWAY!

Seriously, this event is going to be a buh-last.

There'll be super funky cool one-of-a-kind one-night-only rare artifact DOOR PRIZE PACKAGES too!

See you there, superstars.

This event is brought to you by the community-minded ambitious new record label Mighty Speck Records, and of course by the wonderful, incomparable, inimitable independent musicians of British Columbia's fine capital city.

She was once given a guitar and soon found peace in spilling her guts over tranquil melodies.  Now, Zoubi sounds like a Hannah Georgas raised in the 50's.  Her authenticity enchants and leads listeners through a whirlwind of emotional connection seated in ... more info
