New music down the pipe from a couple Island artists (who might be living in Vancouver now?).

First…new music video from Johnny Galactic.

Rolla Olak checked in to share his alt-country jam.

Rolla Olak will be in the Nanoose Bay area for a show on October 5th with rising Island stars Towers and Trees. I *think* Jon Williams is MCing the event! No wait… he is MCing the Towers and Trees October 19th show at Canoe.

An email from my homeboy Matt let me know that Rolla Olak will be opening for Vince Vaccaro on March 15th at Sugar Nightclub.
