March 22: Intercordia Canada Fundraiser w. Rococode, Sam Allen + MORE
Half a Dino Presents:
Another Intercordia Fundraiser:
ROCOCODE (ex-Tegan & Sarah, Hannah Georgas, STW)
Rococode is an evolving band of four Vancouver and Victoria musicians. They have been working hard to bring fans into their world through a collective desire to make adventurous, badass and meaningful pop music. In fact, all the members of Rococode have ever done is make music, playing with big Canadian names. It is nice to finally see them step into their own spotlight
SAM ALLEN & BAND
Sam Allen is one of London's biggest enthusiasts and has definitely paid his dues. This isn't "NOPE", this certainly isn't AHAHB - this is honest, fun, interesting folk rock that is bluesy. Sam and band play their hearts out, and ask you to join in on their passion.
THE CONGRATULATED STRANGERS
The Congratulated Strangers is a local garage rock band with influences as diverse as Red House Reservations, saxophones, and bluegrass. These boys have a deep passion for creating music, and have been doing shows around London for some time now.
Inspired by Brazilian songwriter Jobim, The Colours Collectiva is a group of local music enthusiasts who have come together to create something beautiful. All members of the group have shown a passion for creating music. Only recently have they come together to record. Meditation is a beautiful sample of The Colour Collectiva’s Brazilian inspired jazz music.
PLUS OPENING SINGERS:
Kenji Honda Moore
Jillian & Diane
Graham & Anna

APK Live - 340 Wellington St. (downstairs)
Hey everyone! As some of you may know, there were 12 people selected this year to volunteer abroad through Intercordia Canada. Intercordia Canada is a registered charity which allows individuals to have experiential learning opportunities abroad.
As part of the program, we will spend three months of our summer volunteering in communities and living with host families in Nigcaragua, Honduras, Ecuador, Ghana or Rwanda.
This has been a very moving experience so far, and we would like to take this as an opportunity to extend an invitation to you to be part of our Intercordia experience. Please come out and have a great night, listen to some amazing musicians and support a worthy cause.
