Food4Music 2009 Metal Showcase

As a former Vancouver musician, and having gear stolen on a few occasions, I feel for these guys. If ever there was a time to support your local indie bands this would be it. Helping out the food bank is always good karma too, so get your ass down to the Cobalt on April 11th and do your part!

Bands Team Up to Help Support One of Their Own

VANCOUVER, BC – Food4Music 2009 – On Saturday, April 11th, Vancouver-based Entertainment Company, Food4Music, known for its successful fundraisers for local Food Banks around North America, is extending their services to help out a local independent band, Flood of Fire, recoup stolen gear from a recent theft. This fundraiser will feature performances from Flood of Fire, Reckoner and Venomous Tusk and will feature a performance from Canada’s only female fronted tribute band to Black Sabbath, Sister Sabbath. www.sistersabbath.com
