This Sunday offers a rare chance to see some of Vancouver’s top indie musicians on one stage, in a Dec. 4 benefit to raise money for one of their own.
Black Mountain is an internationally acclaimed psyche-rock unit from Vancouver. But, as the band learned on a recent European tour, glowing 7.5 reviews from music authorities like pitchfork.com are no protection against malfeasance and theft.
On a tour stop in Gothenburg, Black Mountain were dealt a major setback when thieves made off with a bunch of the band’s gear, including synths, guitars and more. To help out, musician friends of the group are taking part in a benefit at the Cobalt (917 Main. St.) to raise money for the band.
Psyche-rock rescue mission this weekend!
