In the House Festival June 1-3: Artist Interviews

Author

Arts contributor Patrick Hayward interviews Michael Fraser, gypsyviolinhiphopturntablist who will be performing with Moka Only at the In the House Festival (June 1-3, 2012 in homes around Vancouver).

He talks about his unique genre mix, having to pee at Shambhala and promoting love through house music and performing in back yards vs. clubs. Plus, he lists for his upcoming shows. Check out Michael Fraser’s music on SoundCloud!

Plus, Sports director Jason Wang takes an artistic turn and interviews Meredith Bates of Pugs and Crows. “The Pugs and Crows Band finds an unsettled and unsettling territory between rock and jazz—a sound that has a gritty elegance, with none of the funky elevator-music cheese that “fusion” often entails. An interesting, enjoyable new cross-breed unleashed on Vancouver’s musical landscape. DIFFICULT MUSIC.”  Check out Pugs and Crows on BandCamp!
