8:00pm - 10:00pm Doors at: 7:00pm
Made up of childhood friends and longtime collaborators, Motorists bring rough-edged punk excitability and the wistful jangle of '80s college rock to their melodic and infectiously energetic sound. Intricate, layered guitar leads, tight, snappy rhythms, and hints of Krautrock repetition and post-punk frustration make up the band's 2021 debut full-length Surrounded.
Motorists were formed in 2018 in Toronto by Craig Fahner, Matt Learoyd, and Jesse Locke. The three musicians had been friends since their teenage years when they all lived in Calgary and had worked together on various projects in the time leading up to the formation of Motorists. The band released a few songs in 2019 and issued the From the Wreckage cassette in 2020 while working toward a full-length LP. That album, Surrounded, materialized in 2021.

We are happy to announce that Vinyl Envy is back to hosting live music on our stage!!
With the help of FACTOR and Creative BC from Sept 17th we welcome a weekly lineup of stellar artists to our intimate record store and stage.
Here's the nuts and bolts of it...
We are operating within the guidelines of Step 3 of the B.C Restart Plan.
Because of this our capacity right now is limited to 30. We will be selling tickets in pairs only. The tickets are seated and safely distanced so bring a friend from your bubble.
Tickets can be purchased online in advance through the Eventbrite link on the Facebook event page. If tickets remain they will be available at the door on the night of the show.
Seat allocation is first come first serve. You decide where you wish to sit.
We also have a private patio/smoking area at the side of our building for you to use.
Vaccine check at the door? Yes. We need to play by the PHO rules, no exceptions.
Masks are not required to be worn when seated but please wear one all other times. Masks and hand sanitizer will be available at the door.
There will be sanitization of all high-contact surfaces before and after events and sanitization of high-contact surfaces that are used by multiple parties (bathroom, door handles etc) while events are in progress.
We want to ensure that all our guests are comfortable in our space and that you are aware of what to expect ahead of time. It's a small space where everyone needs to feel safe.
Thank you for your support and understanding and can't wait to see y'all!!
