It's good to be back! Two and a half months ago Organik set out on the Cross Country Canada Tour. Throughout this time the band entertained audiences in Sunpeaks B.C., Calgary, Regina, Winnipeg, Thunder Bay, London, Toronto, Oshawa, Kingston, and of course Montréal. For a complete video documentary of all the adventures (and new ones to come) I urge you to visit the Organik homepage. The Bits & Pieces Podcast Series is an online tv show which follows the people places & products surrounding Organik. By subscribing to the homepage or through youtube, anyone can receive new vids the minute they're posted.
Now that Organik the band has returned to Vancouver there is much on the cook. Catch a live show at The Bourbon (50 W.Cordova Gastown) November 3rd, or at The Media Club (695 Cambie St.) October 25th and November 9th. Over the winter Organik will also be recording a full length album in preparation for the next excursion being planned for spring '08.
Brace yourselves as Organik and CBC Radio 3 come together in the first ever green-themed podcast entitled 'Turning Green'. This podcast will be available in the podcast section of the CBC Radio 3 website this Friday July 6th. On it you will hear Stefan Lorimer speak on behalf of Organik Productions in the Musecology panel at the Koas Pilots final event in Vancouver. Of course you will also hear some music by Organik!! Tune in.
Come one come all, this Wednesday on Granville Island Organik will shake things up with a live musical performance at the Backstage Lounge along with other Long & McQuade favorites Darren Scott and Sound of One. For all who need a mid-week break from the monotony, join us for drink, sound and glee. It's time to get summer underway.
An energy is building in this city and who knows how far it will go. According to statistics we have never had a stronger hockey team than the 2007 Canucks. Currently up 2-1 in their first round against the Dallas Stars, the team has potential to bring this city to mayhem (let us not forget the '94 run to the finals). In light of this feeling of community, organik has planned a musical performance to dazzle sports fans between periods, as to 'keep the party going'. So slap on your jersey or lucky socks, underwear, or whathaveyou and bring it down to earls on fir (1601 W.Broadway) this Thursday @ 7pm for a night of entertainment sure to make it a game to remember (even if we lose). Watch the game, enjoy the food, guzzle some drinks, and stay for a post-game set by the band. Indeed go canucks go, because the further they make it the more organik playoff nights there will be at various locations throughout this great city of ours.
