A lot shook down in Vancouver in 1983. The Vancouver Art Gallery moved to its current location in the Old Courthouse. Adrian Carr and Paul George founded the Green Party. We got our first Earl’s restaurant. BC Place opened. After three years of development and building, the team at UBC’s TRIUMF did their first scan with a PET tomograph.
In the world of music, bands like Mission of Burma, Siouxsie and the Banshees, and calling-it-quits punk vets D.O.A. were topping charts. Also, Discorder, that magazine from CiTR, was published for the very first time.
This 30th birthday issue pays homage to days of new and old in Vancouver’s independent music scene.
Here’s to an amazing first 30 years. Here’s to an amazing next 30 years.
