Event Description

Vinyl Envy is very proud to present Victoria's very first
Psych & Soul Weekend

Supported by Creative BC and the Province of British Columbia , Psych & Soul Weekend is an electric weekend of live psychedelic and soul music on Friday June 8th & Saturday June 9th! Two nights, eight outstanding Canadian acts, live curated visuals, one unique venue! The show will take place at The First Metropolitan United Church (conveniently located beside the record shop) on 932 Balmoral Road.

~~ FRIDAY JUNE 8th ~~ - Psych Night

[flavours: Heavy Psych Rock / Space Rock ]
Nanaimo's own maestros of psych rock, Moths & Locusts will be featured as the Psych headliners and we are more than stoked! Ever since the recent vinyl release of the mind-melting ‘Intro/Outro’ they have been on our radar. Heavy psychedelic rock meets shoegaze meets drone, Moths & Locusts are a true space-rock experience!

“The sound of a band taking chances, the sound of a band who are not afraid to experiment, and the sound of a band on the move." (Psych Insight, Sept 2017)

SCARS & SCARVES (Victoria, BC)
[flavours: Shoegaze / Psychedelic Rock ]
Drones, tremolos, distortion, phasing and feedback are essential ingredients to the Scars & Scarves sound. The concept of beautiful chaos and sublimeness within noise is paramount. Keep an eye out for their brand new original album coming out late 2018!

POOR BABY (Vancouver, BC)
[flavours: Psychedelic Rock / Garage Rock]
Vancouver renaissance man Ryan Walter Wagner’s cohesive and massive pop songs are strengthened by his 7-piece backing band. Swimming in pop but rooted in psychedelia and throwbacks to late 60’s garage rock, don’t miss Poor Baby!

[flavours: Psychedelic Pop / Experimental Rock]
Victoria’s own premiere psychedelic pop outfit! Record store favourites, Cartoon Lizard immerse themselves & their audiences in fresh, yet nostalgic-feeling originals that will surely have you singing along almost instantly.

~~ SATURDAY JUNE 9th ~~ - Soul Night
[flavours: Soul / Funk / Hip-Hop]
This 17-piece original Funk, Soul, R&B Orchestra comes straight out of Victoria sounding at times like Motown meets Roots meets the Golden Age of Hip Hop. A BIG band bringing back BIG sound with horns, percussion, and an onslaught of talented vocalists & musicians. This group simply loves to make music and making people move! It's safe to say, this band does it all—the danciest party you ever dance-partied!

[flavours: Soul / High-Energy Funk]
Carter & the Capitals are a high energy five-piece funk group from Edmonton, Alberta. Blending modern aesthetics seemlessly into old-school Motown soul and 1980s style funk, Carter & the Capitals fuse the best and most danceable elements of funk, soul and pop for an incredible live music experience! Keep an eye out for their full length debut album available in 2018~!

[flavours: Feel-Good Funk / Jazz]
Since finding each other in Nelson, B.C. ten years ago, the party has evolved it's signature feel-good funk jams. They are a lively dance-inducing mix of funk, folk and jazz-fuelled rock n' roll, joyfully delivered and presented like a funbomb waiting to make you jive.

[flavours: Soul / Jazz / Hip-Hop]
An original and soulful local hip-hop collective who blend multiple genres together with a citrus twist~! Grapefruit Is Impossible comes full circle by introducing building blocks of hip-hop (jazz, funk, soul and more) into the band with live instrumentation guaranteed to get you moving!

Doors 7:00PM - Music 8:00PM
$25 each night - $40 for both nights
$5 for Kids - All Ages Welcome
