Tunnel Canary ft. Mourning Coup, Gretchen Snakes at Sunset Terrace (Vancouver)

Live Music
July 23, 7pm
Wrong Wave HQ @ Sunset Terrace (2028 Clark Drive, Vancouver)
Entrance in the back lot off East 4th Avenue

The terror that Tunnel Canary aspires to inspire is about aiding others to have the realization of being alive, divine, and in heaven, and not dead and in hell. We perform soul surgery. We give the wakeup call.

Nathan Holiday of Tunnel Canary

Legendary Vancouver noise / punk / performance art band TUNNEL CANARY live with their original vocalist EBRA ZIRON for the first time since 1983, and other original members Nathan Holiday and David Sheftel. Also featuring Josh Stevenson on electronix.

Tunnel Canary uses “cheap and customized electronic technology, extreme fashion and gesture, creative imagery, and radical music improvisation (no rules, no mercy)” to create spiritual experiences through noise music.

An evening of chaotic transcendence (or transcendent chaos?) with fellow enigmatic cult icons MOURNING COUP and GRETCHEN SNAKES

Do you miss the Liquidation World store?!? Well it’s back (in spirit) at Sunset Terrace for ONE DAY ONLY. Come join us from 2-8pm Sunday for a mini flea market style outdoor event. Here’s how it’s all going to work and how you can participate:

– We set up a few tables in the back (flea market style)
– You set up a little booth with your art, t-shirts, zines, music, art supplies, books, etc etc etc “we take everything & everything must go!”
– You make the sale/swap (Ca$h, e-transfer, art, etc)
– We will NOT be involved in the sales and will not be taking any cut, you keep it all!
– Attendees: feel free to bring some stuff in a backpack to trade with vendors!

IF YOU WANT TO SIGN UP FOR A TABLE please email liquidationworld2000@gmail.com (do not dm the instagram)

There will be some blankets and just general space available for last minute additions.

The Open Mic will be happening simultaneously!! Please email us (again, no dm’s!) to sign up. Drop ins will also be accepted but it would be nice to get an idea of who wants to participate!
