Running from April 22 – May 3, the fifth annual literary festival will be taking place along Commercial Drive – the primo cultural district for Vancouver’s spoken word community. As one of the programs offered by non-profit Vancouver Poetry House, this year’s schedule boasts the Canadian Individual Slam Championship (determines #1 Canadian individual in slam poetry), as well as the sold out event All-Star Slam.

There is more to the Verses Festival than slam poetry, however, with live interactive performances and competitions with oral storytellers, spoken word artists and singer-songwriters.

Spring party with Discorder Mag! Astoria Friday night! Come out!<>><<>><<>><<>><<>><

Stefana Fratila
“Romanian-born electronic artist/producer. Her music revolves around breaking down gender binaries and the silence around gender-based violence. In live settings, she loops and layers improvised vocal melodies with pulsating dance beats and textures of binaural beats. Since the age of 16, she has performed hundreds of DIY and underground shows around the world. In 2014, she released a visual ep entitled “memory” and a cassette, “Tristă cu Frică”, via Genero, a female-fronted audio collective and independent label.”

The Crowbots
“What do you get when you spend a year and a half scavenging the carcasses of 20th-century rock songs, then spend another year and a half frankensteining them back to life? If you’re the Crowbots, you get five energetic tracks that sound at once classical and freshly technical.” Read more in Discorder….

Still Creek Murder
“Samuel Dick (guitar/vox) and Shay Hayashi (drums/vox) are a rock duo well worth admittance alone…Sam Dick tends to his guitar like a patient in hospice care, comforting it as it violently comes to terms with its own mortality. And with Hayashi both confident and incredible on the drums, Still Creek Murder has a winning recipe almost every time.” Read more in Discorder….

SALAD-DAYS-1
We are proud to present, with MRG, Georgia Straight and Northern Transmission, the documentary screening for Salad Days: A Decade of Punk in Washington, DC. Opening at The Vogue Theatre on April 10th, this is a comprehensive look at the proto-punk scene in DC over a ten year span with interviews by bands, label owners and fanzine publishers such as Dave Grohl, Ian and Alec Mackaye as well as Henry Rollins. Writer/director Scott Crawford has been publishing zines since the age of 12 on punk stuff, making his take on the DIY scene in Washington particularly relevant to the underground.
