TEXTURE & LIGHT w/ FIREWOODPOETRY - BC/AB TOUR (PG JULY 23rd)

image

Electronic Dream Rock band Texture & Light are happy to announce their 2015 summer tour that sees them hit all of the major cities in BC and Alberta and culminates with a headline slot at the 20th annual Kispiox Valley Music Festival (KVMF). The band will be debuting new songs off of their yet to be titled sophomore album and they have added a midi synced lighting rig to their hardware laden set up. Expect these live shows to be bumping, busy, sweaty affairs. At KVMF in addition to performing 2 sets, they will also be hosting a workshop titled “Live Electronic Music Without a Laptop”. Critics have compared Texture & Light's sound to acts as diverse as Telephon Tel Aviv, Mercury Rev, and The Talking Heads. Beth KellMurray of Diffuser FM wrote “Texture & Light walk a fine line between making dance-ready club hits and emotionally complex tunes to make you think. You’ll discover something new with each play.” The band's debut album 'The Hard Problem of Consciousness' was charted on campus and community stations across Canada and the album's single 'A Quiet Place' has received extensive international radio play and made CBC radio 3's list of top tracks of 2013. Alan Ranta (Exclaim!, Polaris 2014 Grand Juror) called The Hard Problem of Consciousness “an expansive and personal listening experience, filtering the intimacy of bedroom production through the dance floor of a road trippin’ extrovert.” The band will be supported by Saltspring Island based artist FirewoodPoetry who will set the mood with her brand of lush west coast electronica (except at Powell River show). Texture & Light and FirewoodPoetry play Nancy O's on Thursday July 23rd - their last stop before KVMF. event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/1617696181822188/

PG employers covering your tuition, food AND living expenses? Yes!

It’s hard to get work experience straight out of high school. Post-secondary education can be costly too. Going away to school is even more expensive when you factor in living expenses, never mind the cost of food. UNBC Continuing Studies came up with a solution! 30 + Prince George employers will pay for your education and provide you with 22 months of work experience. Tuition, food and housing are all covered. This is a fantastic way to get an education and work experience without the student loans. Apply for the Advanced Employment Skills Certificate program at http://www.unbc.ca/skills.
