    Folks, it's that time of year again, that special time when the leaves start to turn and the breeze carries that suggestive wisp of a season past and another to come. It's also that time when us Libras get together with our friends to recollect and celebrate with wine and song the passing of another year and the start of a new one. Our good friend Charles Martin reins in as the patriarch of Libras, a title well earned from a full life of 88 years. In honour of this we will feature at this years Libra Bash a sampling of some Vancouver's finest masters of the 88s and a plethora of musical talent to accompany and embellish thereupon. Trust me when I tell you, it is going to be fun night -if you love good music, good company and good times strap on your dancing shoes and come on down to The Princeton Pub on Saturday, October 4th!

Bio: Listed as one of "BC's Best Bands" by The Province Newspaper's Tom Harrison for two years running (2007/2008), Big Joe Burke’s rowdy and rousing alt-country music has been stopping and stealing hearts since he first emerged in Vancouver’s Roots Music Scene in the Spring of 2006.

“The Year in Music Best Local Groups The year before it was Anthill, but now that group didn't produce a new album. The local scene had a lot of great bands releasing a lot of good indie stuff, but the one I enjoyed most was Combine The Victorius. It showed a knowledge of the past that it used to go forward. Pride Tiger, Cinderpop, Big Joe Burke and Panurge are more homegrown acts to be proud of.”
