The Solo Sessions

Big news, people! And I mean Big….after a long 3 weeks with no live music, Acoustic Night is mounting a fierce comeback, with a snappy new name: The Solo Sessions.

This Saturday, between 7 and 9pm, come down to cafca to catch some of Vancouver’s hottest up-and-coming artists! We have eight extremely talented musicians lined up to play, plus some surprise special guests! I don’t know about you but the special guests really make me curious….I’m working, so I’ll be there – will you?

The best part of the event: it’s completely FREE! No cover charge. Now there’s really no excuse not to come out! We’re right by the seabus, close to all kinds of transportation; we have delicious food; and our coffee has been known to change lives! Factor in live, ridiculously awesome, free music and great people….you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to do the math.

So to sum up:

  • FREE live music
  • some of Vancouver’s hottest artists
  • AWESOME coffee
  • AWESOME food
  • AWESOME people

Now the only question left is how many people will you bring along?

See you there!

LOL,

Tim

PS – this night is going to be the HUGE, so if you want good seats – come early!

Now Open

We are now open!  Finally.

   Our opening exhibition: WE LOVE YOU COMRADE NAVIN, featuring Navin Party projects, Navins of Bollywood and Quotations from Comrade Navin is up. And warmly accompanying it are a few opening-appropriate works in our café including: the billboard painting and photo document of Navin Rawanchaikul’s 2001 PS1/Public Art Fund project, I  Taxi; Steve Hubert’s The Dive; and two little works by Scott August, Winter Panda and Bull on Pink.

Meanwhile, the café is serving great coffees roasted by 49th Parallel and Intelligentsia.  Our current espresso, for those of you who are interested, is 49th’s Organic.  And if you do stop by soon, try the Ethiopian Aricha on our Clover.  It is really a coffee to write home about.  If you are hungry come have a panini we just started selling them a few days ago.

We are located at 140 East Esplanade in North Vancouver BC, just a short walk from the Seabus terminal at Lonsdale Quay and not far from the Presentation House Gallery where I understand this weekend they are opening Phot(o)bjects, a new show curated by Bob Nickas.
