Vancouver’s historic Gastown neighbourhood has transformed over the years from being part of the city’s original townsite, to a tourist destination, a creative space for living and working, and a current hub of gastronomical delight. It has hosted the Vancouver International Jazz Festival, motorcycle exhibitions, show and shines, and now it will be home to the second annual Make Music Vancouver.
Make Music Vancouver is a free music showcase featuring over 150 local musicians this Thursday, June 21st, 2012. Make Music Vancouver is a non-profit event, supporting local arts and culture. Sidewalks, storefronts, and public areas will turn into live concert venues from 5:00pm until 10:00pm. Every show is free thanks to the artists, both professional and amateur of various genres, who will be donating their time.
To promote Make Music Vancouver and notorious Gastown, I have a $50 gift card for the Irish Heather to give away. The Irish Heather is part of the Heather Hospitality Group that also includes Shebeen, Salty Tongue, Salt, and Judas Goat. The Irish Heather has a hearty pub menu with local ingredients and an impressive line-up of craft and international beer.
