Jose Gonzalez (of Junip) has just announced his first tour since 2008, and thankfully Vancouver made the cut for places he will visit. He starts out in December playing the Wonderfruit Festival in Thailand (sounds tasty) and hits Vancouver on April 25th, 2015 at the Imperial. Keep your eyes peeled for tickets because this magical and talented musician probably won't be back for a long time.

Nathan For You: a business school grad helping small businesses thrive with his ingenious marketing ideas. This guy is absolutely hilarious, we're so hooked.
Very cool collaboration by visual artist Joshua Davis and the band Phantogram at this year's SXSW.
A fine fresh piece of work by our good pal Michael Gresham. Looking forward to a full album of his soon!
Vancouver's own Bear Mountain released a new music video today and it is a beauty! Nice work fellas...made it up the mountain without even breaking a sweat.
iTunes is taking live streaming shows to another level at the iTunes Festival by putting on a 30-day festival featuring some pretty darn big names in music, streamed daily for free. All content is uploaded the next day to YouTube in HD. We're looking forward to seeing Beck play live later today!
Whoa, we've been away for a while! Call it summer hibernation or whatever you like, we're back on the grid now and looking forward to sharing more of our favourite content with you.
First up is a great live clip of Aloe Blacc doing an a cappella "I Need A Dollar" in what appears to be a French restaurant. By the legendary field music video project La Blogotheque.
The Polaris Music Prize announced the long list (click here for full list) for the 2014 award today...and as usual, we are in awe of the inspiring and innovative music that Canadians continue to create. Congrats to everyone nominated!
You can listen to a great playlist of a sample of the nominated albums here on CBC Music: http://r3.ca/6BAv
Congratulations to all the talented bands that made the 2014 Peak Performance Project top 12, including our very own house band, Goodwood Atoms! We couldn't be happier and more excited for everyone that made it this far. Best of luck over the next few months!
Wonderful live show by instrumental outfit Snarky Puppy features headphones for all audience members...perfect example of the 'listening party' style of show we would love to have at the Room. Oh, the clarity!
In the spirit of sharing what we love, the collective at the The Juniper Room will be putting out a playlist of our favourite tracks we've been enjoying each month, for two different moods: Chill and Boogie. Below are playlists for the month of May - our first installment. Enjoy, and stay tuned!
We had the pleasure of linking up with our friends over at LOVEcoast to record one their original songs "Letters". This is the first of many artists to come through the Juniper Room for a live recording. To hear more check out:
