Since the massive third weekend of May, Vancouver’s concert scene has slowed considerably. However we see things start to pick up this month, especially towards the middle of June, when the CBC Music Festival hosts a slew of great Canadian acts. Several big-ticket shows, from Michael Bublé to Cher (Rogers Arena, June 7), follow. We picked a few for your enjoyment and edification (tickets still available as of this writing).
Some other notables not mentioned below: Jonathan Richman at the Biltmore Cabaret, June 4; Vancouver indie-folk troubadour Destroyer, playing a solo show June 12 at the Rickshaw; singer/songwriter Josh Rouse June 14 at the Biltmore; the return of ’90s rockers Veruca Salt (“Seether”), June 24th at the Biltmore Cabaret; and of course the Vancouver International Jazz Festival, June 20-July 1.
