CHAINS OF LOVE :: http://
Chains of Love has effectively bridged the gap between the nostalgic pop sounds of the ’60s with a modern and elegant twist. All hailing from Vancouver, BC this five-piece started in December 2010, referencing certain artists such as Gail Harris, Ike & Tina, The Ronnettes, and The Shangri-la’s by using their lo-fi recording styles as a blueprint for what they wanted to hear in music today. Open up your heart and let Chains be your rock and soul salvation.
DAN MANGAN :: http://
Once a mere fresh faced folk singer from Vancouver Canada, Dan Mangan is blowing up on the world’s doorstep with four JUNO nominations this year, including Best New Artist & Songwriter of the Year. The evolution of Mangan’s music is instinctively in line with its breadth and sincerity. As his art has developed, so has the story behind its constant and exponential proliferation. Mangan’s latest opus, Oh Fortune, was released on Arts & Crafts late last year and is a rich, textured, indie-folk(ish) statement that explores the genre’s boundaries with great influence from his band.
SAID THE WHALE :: http://saidthewhale.com/ 10pm
In the five years since Said The Whale formed, the band’s hook-heavy, pop-rock sound has propelled them to successes that include a nationally televised documentary, a JUNO Award victory for best new artist, and a seemingly endless series of tours around the globe. In an age of overnight internet sensations, theirs is a true grassroots success story that has allowed the group to take its place among the Canadian indie rock elite.
SLAM DUNK :: http://
Described as the “E-Street band on Crack”, Slam Dunk’s live shows command people to lose their shiiiit to a blend of shout-along choruses and twisting fuzz-guitar melodies. With the help of Vancouver producer Colin Stewart (Black Mountain, New Pornographers), Slam Dunk were able to capture the intense energy of their live performances on the recent full-length album, The Shivers.
HUMANS :: http://dashumans.com/ 12am
Humans are an electro dance party duo from Vancouver, BC. Robbie Slade and Peter Ricq got together in 2008 and instantly started creating dance floor bangers. The release of their latest EP Traps on Hybridity Music this spring solidifies the duo as an act that will not only make you sweat but you will also never forget.
MONOLITHIUM :: https://www.facebook.com/
A child of hip-hop and a student of contemporary electronic music, Monolithium’s sound is the axiom where funk, techno and grime coalesce into concise, focused dancefloor pressure. Chris Longshanks’ debut EP, Simon & G-Funk (via Error Broadcast) is packed with psychedelic crunk from another realm altogether, combining the structures of hip-hop with tough, sexy grooves & colourful synth work.

Back in Vancouver for a few days now. I have almost recovered. Slept for 12hours last night. Think i’m getting sick. I miss Austin, drinking all day, sleeping little and most of all “being shitty” which we decided the upside down peace sign is the international symbol for. Spread the good word.
Apologies to anyone who wasn’t at SXSW that I pissed off with my drunk tweets. Thank god, I had my camera and my twitter account or I would have no idea what happened.
Without further adoo-doo.
Day 1. PS I Love You (Kingston, ON) at Canada House.
Our cab driver didn’t know where to get any green but he did have MCat. That was a highlight of our trip. It was particularly nice for James Blake (UK).
James Blake – Limit To Your Love (Tanzlife edit)
Cecil of Gobble Gobble (san fran / Edmonton).
Wolf Gang (far left and middle)(No relation to Odd Future). They are from England and are pretty chill bros.
Wolf Gang – Dancing With The Devil (Outer Limits Recordings’ Coco Bongo Club remix)

Grimes (Montreal) at the Olio, Music Waste, Mint Records showcase @ Headhunters. I still havn’t heard back about my marriage proposal to Grimes via twitter. Still open. ooo gawd.
Bikini (Victoria / New York) at Headhunters.
Humans (Vancouver) @ 7-11. Yes we have 7-11′s in Canada. They don’t sell booze though. I think this is some unreleased new Humans. Hopefully I don’t get in trouble for posting it.
Black Lips (Atlanta) at a Vice party.
DAY 3. HotTub (Oakland) at Palm Door. These guys are like on some Salt n Peppa tip. Lol. They have a song about 4loko.
Miracle Fortress (Montreal). (Not the sunglasses bro, he’s alright though)
Quadron. This Danish duo were amazing. Soul. In Vancovuer April 12th.
Skrillex (L.A.) was one of the most intense / fun shows I saw. Duhbbstephhhin.
Class Actress (Brooklyn).
@tristanorchard “Dude. These kids are killing in the back yard. ? R tehy? http://t.co/Nmwrl1u” OMG they were tight and I don’t mean their buttholes. From NY via Arizona.
I blogged about these guys a while back. It was pretty cool to watch them and find out who they were. Dead Gaze (Mississippi)
Eric our new friend from San Fran who works for Intel.
DAY 4. Big Freedia (New Orleans) at the Mess With Texas tent. Right before everyone jumped on stage and some drunk guy pulled down his pants and showed his peen for a long ass time.
Had to jump the fence to get backstage and then sneak past security to hang off the scaffolding backstage for Odd Future (L.A.). Some girls started fighting next to me for position and were pulling each others hair. Diddy showed up and was hanging out backstage. I swear he looked at me hanging of the scaffolding like a douche with my camera and gave me a lil wink, like, “Never give up kid”. Awesome. Tried to follow him to find the Kanye West penthouse party but I swear he disappeared into thin air. Might of been a hologram.
Fave chill bro, Teen Daze (Vancouver) at Soho.
Basketball (Vancouver) at Soho.
Jamie XX (London) at Barcelona. I told my friend Becky to go ask a guy standing next to the bassbin if he was Jamie XX. Totally was! NBD right. Swoon. Too bad she lost her voice.
Vancouver peeps at an after party on the last night.
DAY 5. Last day. Hanging out in a field at a school killing time before flights home with the roommates. Party pain. Can you tell who went to bed the earliest / is the most responsible?
Stay tuned for the video footage. Just say no kids.
