What’s Crackin’: Events Edition
BC Northern Exhibition
The BC Northern Exhibition truly illustrates the spirit of the North. Join us at the Exhibition Grounds in Prince George August 8-9 for a weekend of skateboard & mountain bike demos, barrel racing, live bands, and so much more! We’ll see you in the licensed saloon, the Stetson Stomp and of course at the Sunday morning pancake breakfast. Grab a boo and go big!
Hedley “Hedspin” Tuscano is a Vancouver based Philipino DJ. Being a person of Filipino descent living in North Americia, HedSpin says he had two choices. Become a male Nurse, a Housekeeper, a Boxer, a Pool player, run a Karaoke bar, or become a DJ or a Breakdancer. Join us Friday, August 8th to see why we think he made the right call!
While his foundation is strictly and only rap, hip-hop, funk, soul, 80’s, dancehall and reggae HedSpin has the versatility, know how and skill to rock in any genre (including, coincidently, rock music). He’s generally considered a crowd pleasing party rocker and has a PHD in “making bitches dance”. Of course I made that last part up (he only has a Masters degree) and I’m hyping him up for this bio, but truly, HedSpin can and will and does turn a party out.
Galiano Beer & Wine Festival
On Saturday August 9, 2014 come and join us for the Galiano Wine & Beer Festival – just for the health of it! It’s a fun event for a worthwhile cause – to raise the money needed to keep the Galiano Island Health Care Centre up to date and serving the community. The event is a pleasant twenty minute walk from the ferry and the Village, to the Community Lions Park.
Informal and joyful, the wine and beer festival is an open-air event that is a wonderful way to spend a summer afternoon. And at forty dollars a ticket, it’s great value! Ticket price includes unlimited tasting, a crystal wine glass, fresh-made finger food, and entertainment. Galiano artists are also exhibiting and selling their original work. There’s room to move around, no long waits for the beers you want to taste, plenty of time to talk with the wine and beer experts as well as hanging out with your old and new friends.
Isobel Trigger EP Release Show
With exotic vocals, driving lead lines and heart-thumping grooves, Isobel Trigger aims to weave a musical web and draw you to the stage this Saturday, August 9th. This band is about delicate innocence meeting howling distortion; soft whimsical lyrics and sweet shiny tones building and crashing into powerful crescendos. It’s little red riding hood and the big bad wolf all in one!

Two time champions Okanagan Sun take on VI Raiders this Saturday Aug 9th, 7:00PM kick off. We’ll see you in the boo gardens at 5:00PM!

40 Oz Release @ The Fox Cabaret
No rap group (save, perhaps, N.W.A.) has stirred more controversy or provoked more heated debate than the 2 Live Crew. The furor over the graphic sexual content of their X-rated party rhymes — specifically their 1989 album As Nasty as They Wanna Be — was a major catalyst in making rap music a flash point for controversy and an easily visible target for self-appointed moral guardians.
