the Shindig schedule is announced!

Authors

shindig-final-low-resCiTR’s annual band competition has been showcasing new and unknown local bands since 1983. Over 800 local bands have competed, winning studio time, showcases and media coverage, while the audience heckles and tells jokes for beer.

Shindig! starts Tuesday, October 21, and continues nine weeks until Tuesday, December 16th, at the Hindenburg, 23 West Cordova in Gastown. Semis will happen January 16 / 20 / 27 and the finals on Friday, February 6th. Cover is $6, with free pool, a brand new stage, local beer on tap, and CiTR DJs spinning tunes after the bands.

“Shindig isn’t really a battle of the bands competition – it’s a showcase of local music and an excuse for people to see local bands,” says Shindig host Ben Lai.
