Published Dec 16, 2011In Vancouver, a productive indie rock community has blossomed around the Peak 100.5 FM radio station, and on December 21, some of that scene's most prominent members will team up at the Vogue Theatre for a concert called Sing It Forward to benefit the St. James Music Academy.
Presented by the Peak, Hootsuite, the Vogue Theatre and Vancouver Is Awesome, the show includes performances by Hey Ocean!, Aidan Knight, the Zolas, Adaline, Michael Bernard Fitzgerald, Dave Vertesi, Vince Vaccaro, the Belle Game, Aaron Nazrul and members of Said the Whale. There will also be special guests.
The organizers have been unveiling special performance videos featuring the bands on the bill supported by students of the St. James Music Academy. Below, watch stripped-down performances by the Zolas, Rococode, and the Belle Game.
St. James Music Academy strives to offer free music education to children from poor families living in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside. Learn more about the organization here.
Tickets for the show are on sale now from Zulu Records and the Vogue box office.
