Band Showcase: Bon Voyage Peach Guevara
January 20 @ 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM
This event is being held on the beautiful traditional and unceded Coast Salish Territories, specifically of the Lekwungen peoples***
After almost 3 years residing on Lekwungen territory, I say this with a heavy heart that I am moving to so-called “Montreal” known as Tiotia:ke in the language of the Kanien’kehá:ka, a place that has historically been a meeting place for other Indigenous nations, including the Algonquin people.
After putting so much time and energy into this community, it felt wrong leaving without a proper goodbye. As a thank you to this beautiful, resilient community, I wanted to give back in the best way I know how, by hosting a music showcase! All proceeds from this event will be going towards supporting Unist’ot’en Camp. Thank you again to every person in this community who gave me hope, who helped me continue to believe that a better world IS possible, you will forever be cherished in my heart.
– Paige aka Clara aka Peach Guevara

7:30 – Rotten Apple Ruckus:
With all the tools for a laundromat dance party, Rotten Apple Ruckus will explode string band plink and plunk all over! Their goal is shimmy, shake and cutting rugs. A jugless jug band hailing from Alabama, Quebec, and Victoria. Come stomp your boots and shake your booty to these old time ragged rhythms!
8:00pm – Life Forms: Trippy, hypnotic loops and guitar.
8:30pm – Thunderfeet: Thunderfeet is a hip hop artist that is working to inspire, and entertain audiences of all ages. His music deals with growth, healing, the state of our human civilization, and spiritual wondering
9:00pm – Peach Guevara: Soft but potent, Peach Guevara is the mirror to the soul. Singing of everything human, the highs, the lows, and everything in between.
