Info for Bands

So you’re in a band from outside of Vancouver Island and you want to play a show?

Contact one of us and if we like your band, we’ll set something up! We like bands with humble DIY attitudes and without rockstar press kits and riders.

A few of us do shows in Victoria:
Pauly Hardcore – Paul is an active board member of the VIHC Society and has helped put on some of the larger hardcore shows in Victoria.
Austin Simpson – Austin sings in No Eulogy and is active in putting shows on in Victoria.
Troy Lemberg – Troy is the President of the VIHC Society and has helped put on some large shows, as well as many small shows in Victoria.
Ebony Aitken – Ebony is an active board member of the VIHC Society and has helped put on lots of shows in Victoria.
Comrade Black – Comrade is interested in crust, political bands, and folk punk. He lives in Victoria.
Me – I do occasional shows and have done shows for Loma Prieta, Graf Orlock, Kidcrash, Creeper – so anything in that vein is right up my alley. I live in Victoria.
Devin Beaudoin – Books shows in Nanaimo.
The Cambie – This is a pub that will book (no minors) shows in Nanaimo.
Evan Watler – Books shows in Duncan.

We are familiar with arranging border papers for American bands to play all ages shows on Canadian soil.

BC Ferries – will get you from Vancouver to Victoria or Nanaimo and back. They can be expensive but we have ways of reducing the costs, talk to us about this.
The Coho – will get you between Port Angeles and Victoria. It’s much cheaper than the Clipper but not as reliable at the border crossing as going between Seattle and Vancouver by land.
The Clipper – will get you between Seattle and Victoria. It’s the most express route but also the most expensive and again, not as reliable for a smooth border crossing as going between Seattle and Vancouver by land.

So you’re in a band from Vancouver Island and you want to play a show on Vancouver Island?

Come to some of the shows we put on and meet us. You can contact the promoters above but preference is always given to hardcore/punk/grind/metal bands that are respectful and an active part of the community we love. We’re very nice, I promise.
