Vancouver, one of the youngest cities in the world, is having a birthday! 125 years in a city life span probably reckons out to be, oh, 13 years old. And so the teen years begin. Veda Hille and the Vancouver Complaints Choir throw a party for this annoying and beloved teenage town, hosted by Vancouver Special author Charles Demers. The choir will perform three new songs written for the occasion: a song of Complaints, a song of Confession, and a song of Congratulations. All lyrics to these songs will be drawn from the citizens of Vancouver. With birthday guests Geoffrey Farmer, Meryn Cadell, Maiko Bae Yamamoto, Geoff Berner, Laura Barrett, Chrisariffic, and more.
The teen years are hard, but surprisingly rich as well. Let’s make the best of it, and help this gangly teen off to a good start!
