A Maple Blues award nominee, guitarist, songwriter and singer Arsen Shomakhov, is an electric blues performer truly dedicated to the style’s roots yet never hesitating to borrow means of expression from other genres.

He established himself as a blues-devoted virtuoso in his native Russia making it to the International Blues Challenge (IBC) in Memphis in 2005 and winning the new talent contest at the King Biscuit Blues Festival in Helena, AR in 2007.

After moving to Vancouver in 2008, Arsen formed the Arsen Shomakhov Trio that currently features Bruce O’Neill on bass and Chip Hart on drums. Working hard to make a name for the band, he has performed at a variety of festivals across the US and Canada including: The King Biscuit Blues Festival, The Waterfront Blues Festival, Edmonton’s Labatt Blues Festival, Montreal International Blues Festival and the Calgary International Blues Festival. He slated for the Festival International du Blues de Tremblant (Mont Tremblant International Blues Festival) in July 2017.

Arsen’s music continues to gain momentum and is appreciated by thousands of fans around the world. His humble and genuine nature combined with his natural and impressive talent make him a real asset to the BC Blues Community.

Local Trio Super Wicked Awesome will open the show.  This local band consists of Karl Hourigan, Gail Hourigan and Jay Dallamore, a blues trio featuring electric guitar, bass and drums. No frills, just 50 shades of blue.

Saturday, May 6th – ​Fat Cat Social Concert at Turtle Bay Pub

This fantastic event is being organized by Local, Rich Tason, in support of the Kidney Foundation and his wife, Sheri’s, medical expenses from her kidney transplant last October.

“Rich and I would like to give a little back to The Kidney Foundation for their invaluable assistance throughout the transplant process. Half of the funds raised will go to The Kidney Foundation and half will go towards paying off some residual medical related expenses.” – Sheri Stuart

Proceeds from lasagna sales will go to the cause, we’ll have tons of great silent auction items, a raffle for BBQ sets and a wine cooler (full of wine!), as well as a 50/50 draw.

Not only is this event for a great cause, but for a fun time out, as there will be ​live music from 1pm – midnight!!

The Vth Circle And Social Arsonist – May 29th at Muninn’s Post

Vancouver / half Chilean thrashers SOCIAL ARSONIST performing in Kelowna on May 29th as part of their Western Canadian tour in support of their latest album ‘Duality of Perception’.

Now I think the first question to ask is how is Social Arsonist based in Vancouver with a bunch of Chileans and Canadians.
Well.. Formed in Chile in 2009 by bassist Dario Zuniga and guitarist Manuel Morgado, the two musicians were unable to locate the perfect vocalist in their home country and turned the World Wide Web. Finding Canadian singer Cayle Charlton, the duo worked with him for years via the internet, honing their material before taking the ultimate step of relocating to Canada.

With a full line up in Vancouver, BC, the fiery crucible of Chilean thrash met the icy cauldron of Canadian metal to create an explosive storm built on a foundation of classic thrash and modern metal resulting in two releases. Their 2016 full length ‘Duality of Perception’ and 2014 debut EP ‘De-Evolution of Thy Self’ both demonstrate the hardship of the band’s sound that is aggressive, fast, intense, catchy and disruptive.

What the press says:

“kickass old-school thrash metal” – Georgia Straight

“No mere clones of the bands that have come before them, social arsonist are willing to push forward with-in the thrash genre”, “One can hear elements of melodic death metal at times with nods to dark tranquility and at the gates.”  – Crown of Viserys
