Summer kick-off festivities on this month: music, comedy, and art waste
Ajay's IT List! It's the first weekend in June, time to enjoy summer and all the festivities around Vancity:
June 2 - 5
$15 for an all-inclusive pass (or $5 per show)
Cameron Reed & friends put on a great independent music, art & comedy festival which highlights the region’s coolest bands.
This year, Music Waste will feature nearly 100 bands (yes, a hundred) at dozens of venues. Best part is that it includes ART Waste (eight art exhibitions), COMEDY Waste (three sites), Go Your Own Waste (letting all of us participate and hold a show), a bowling party, park bbq and a basketball tournament.
Check out the schedule, if you try even a quarter of the line up I'm sure you'll be amazed.
Now if that's not enough here are some other events:

Love the tag line: The Sadies may sound like a lot of things, but no one quite sounds like the Sadies. A kick ass duo! Pack A.D. were on the cover of the Georgia Straight last week, and just released their latest LP "We Kill Computers"
Sat June 5
@ Vancouver Art Gallery (Georgia Side)| 1-3 PM
HUGE rally planned for the people of Palestine and the aid workers who attempted to bring supplies via the Freedom Flotilla
Events around the corner (Mark your calendars)...
