Tor Miller is a voice to keep an ear out for.

Vancouver will see Owen Pallett play at the Biltmore Cabaret this Thursday May 28th.
The Katherines played their debut show this past Friday at the Biltmore Cabaret. The latest addition to the 604 Records roster had built quite the buzz surrounding the show, and the evening certainly did not disappoint.
