Daily Music Blogging from Vancouver 2010 Olympics

The 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver is set to start with the Opening Ceremonies tomorrow night (Friday Feb 12). And with the blow of the whistle, so begins a relentless two weeks of Canadian (and international) musical talent as well. I'll be bringing you a short show recap, hopefully everyday, of the shows that are flowing through this fair city.

If you have yet to check out the list of handy handouts I've made of the upcoming two weeks of concerts, make sure to check it out here. If you want to track the highlighted shows I'll be covering, check out this schedule.

This upcoming weekend (all shows are free):

Friday: Montreal's Malajube will be playing at la Place de la Francophonie at Granville Island at 9:00 pm. Come see what these twice-Polaris-nominated rockers have to offer.

Saturday: Toronto-based Bedouin Soundclash headlines the Richmond O Zone, with openers Hey Ocean! from Vancouver. Guaranteed to be a sun-soaked (-sounding), Caribbean/raggae-inspired dance-off.

Sunday: Hopping venues-- Vancouver's Mother Mother play LiveCity Yaletown at 8:00pm, and Toronto's Elliott BROOD are at LiveCity Downtown at 9:00pm. Expect to be hit by walls of sound; first by MM's three-part harmonies and surprising compositions, then by EB's rousing, foot-stomping pots & pans rock.
