Caffe Fantastico Roastery is bringing great music and great ...
Open / Operational
***This collaborative event between Rise N' Resist, Caffe Fantastico and a variety of generous creatives is being held on the beautiful traditional and unceded lands of the Lekwungen Nations***
Help support those fighting the front lines against the Kinder Morgan Pipeline at this crucial fundraising event!
The time is now to come together and support one another in our efforts to protect our coastal home, its many inhabitants, and this enchanting ecosystem teeming with diversity and abundance. Almost 200 people have been arrested on the frontlines of the expansion project on Burnaby Mountain, and the number will only rise as members of Indigenous Nations, water protectors and concerned locals continue to stand up against Kinder Morgan for the future of our climate, sustainable and forward-thinking energy development projects, and the generations of our children to come.
For those residing on these lands there are many ways to help outside of front line resistance, and we can pool our funds and resources to help alleviate pressures on those willing arrest.
Join us in celebrating some of the best qualities of humanity -- imagination, creativity, emotion -- through an evening of live music of many genres, art and artisan auction, and wholesome eats and drinks!
FEE: $10 at the door
(if cost is an issue for you please contact us!)

DOORS OPEN at 7:00PM - please arrive early as there's much to come!

HEADLINER - OLIVER SWAIN:
"A celebrated musician combining whimsical, spiritual and socially-conscious acoustic folk music which he likes to refer to as "chamber folk odyssey". Oliver Swain is a Juno and WCMA nominated Americana and Folk-Noir musician from Victoria BC. Oliver's live show has attracted the attention of Tamara Kater, Executive Director of Folk Music Canada who says, “Since I first discovered him in 2008, Oliver Swain has been one of my very favorite artists – especially in a live setting. His performances are a musical journey that takes you from haunting old-time melodies to soaring new songs...sweeping vocal stylings, dazzling and dramatic skills as an instrumentalist, an evening spent with Oliver Swain will leave you breathless and joyful.”
"Young wild wymoon Peach Guevara is a singer/songwriter and activist who writes her original folk-like tunes of love, revolution, and being human."
