A La Ti Da Xmas Mixtape

Tis the season. And Kent Bendall from Budokan has graciously agreed to give the gift of music, with love from him, to you. His holiday mixes have been the stuff of legend for years and now we get to hear why. So sit back, pour yourself a spiced rum and eggnog, put another log on the TV and enjoy what will soon be your favourite holiday mix. If this don’t get sugar-plumbs dancing in your head, nothing will. Happy Holidays.

A Very Vancougar Christmas

vancougar xmasEight years ago the gals in Vancougar formed a band and quickly became the best of friends. Since then, every year at Christmas they’ve gotten together for ‘A Very Vancougar Christmas’ to exchange gifts and have FUN and be FESTIVE!

This year, Vancougar would like to invite all of you to join us in the first ever A Very Vancougar Christmas Show! They’ve asked some of their favourite all-female (or mainly female) kick ass rock n’ roll bands around town to help round out a killer night.


SAT DEC 10 at Pat’s Pub
Doors 8pm / Show 9pm
