Halloween is in the books, and as we flip the calendar over to November, the culture desk at Evolution takes a look at some of the upcoming concerts coming to town over the next week. From Canadian farewells, to well loved indie bands, to alt-rock stalwarts, and some classic 90’s era rock, here’s a rundown of what to check out as the evenings get longer, and the temperature begins to drop.
Hollerado– November 2, Commodore Ballroom
Indie rock band, Hollerado, is currently on the road in support of their sixth and final album, Retaliation Vacation. The well traveled Canadian rockers will be lowering the curtain on their 13 year career with a December show at the Danforth theatre in Toronto, but before they head home to Southwestern Ontario, check out their final BC show, live from the Commodore Ballroom, on Saturday, November 2nd.
Ra Ra Riot — November 2nd, Biltmore Cabaret
The baroque rock of American indie favorites, Ra Ra Riot, will descend upon East Vancouver on Saturday evening, as the Biltmore Cabaret plays host to the Superbloom tour, in support of the groups 2019 album. Think Vampire Weekend, with a dash of Death Cab for Cutie. You’ve probably heard their single ‘Boy’ without being aware, as it’s popped up in ads for Honda, as well as the American comedy Shameless
Big Wreck– November 1st, Commodore Ballroom
Night two of a dual engagement sees Big Wreck take over the Commodore for the first weekend of the month. The 90’s alt rock band has enjoyed fan favourite status in Canada over their 20 year plus career, and will continue the love on the back of their recent release, But for the Sun.
Tom Morello– November 7th, Commodore Ballroom
Legend of the alternative rock scene of the 90’s and 2000’s, Rage Against the Machine, Audioslave, and Prophets of Rage guitarist, Tom Morello, will be bringing the noise to downtown Vancouver of Thursday, November 7th. Look for a crushing set of his trademark wailing guitar, in what will surely be a raucous affair at the Commodore.
That’s merely a taste of great live music kicking off across Vancouver; hit us up with your recommendations, or what you plan to check out this month.
