In 2009, a group of individuals frustrated by the increasingly commodified live music scene decided to host three artists in their tiny North London flat. They invited a selected audience of true music lovers to join in on the experience. After that show, those people went and told their friends… and today, Sofar Sounds is curating secret, intimate gigs in unique spaces around the world.
Here in Vancouver, Sofar Sounds has a growing team of passionate organizers. Our October session in a Yaletown loft showcased the spectacular sounds of Adam Pereira, Krista Michaela, Headwater, and Little Cowards.
This past week, we were blown away by Ty Collins, FRANKIE, Jeff Gladstone & The Bad Ideas, and Colin Cowan & The Elastic Stars, who all performed within the incredible basement setting of Decentral Vancouver.
Check out the photos of that show here by VANDOC’s photographer Sarah Faye Bernstein.
Our sessions now take place once a month, always in a different intimate space. Music is performed, art is created, and community is built.
