With great new music being released every month, keeping up can be a daunting task for even the most ardent music aficionado. Western Front’s Listening Party invites Vancouver-based artists to share some music that they have found thought-provoking and inspiring with curious listeners. This free event series hopes to provide a stepping off point for those looking to further explore new contemporary music.
On Thursday, July 15, multi-instrumentalist Anju Singh comes to Western Front for our first Listening Party since the start of the pandemic. Anju’s playlist runs a wide gamut from Madlib’s driving beats, to Swedish doom metal, to the punk band Haram, to early 20th century Greek violin music from Epirus. Come join us to listen and talk about music with Anju and Western Front’s New Music Curator Aram Bajakian.
Presented with support from the Hamber Foundation.
