You know what they say – April showers bring May shows. This year is no exception, but things really peak on the weekend of May 23-25. That’s when the annual Sasquatch Music Festival at the Gorge Amphitheatre in Washington State brings hundreds of bands to the Pacific Northwest for our own (potentially rainy) Coachella.
So if you’re in Vancouver that weekend, you’ll have options galore – some of the bands playing that weekend include Waxahatchee, (Vancouver’s own) Pink Mountaintops, City and Colour, Brody Dalle, Cut Copy, Chet Faker, Haim (alas, sold-out), Banks, Parquet Floors, Lana Del Ray, and Mogwai. For that weekend’s selection in our six must-see May concerts, we picked – well, see below.
