Music in BC - bands, venues and festivals

I couldn't find a thread dedicated to music in BC so thought I should start one. We can discuss not just bands but also venues and festivals.

Vancouver has actually got some really good bands these days, particularly Destroyer, whose latest album 'Kaputt' was voted second best album of the year by Pitchfork.



See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Destroyer_(band)

Video for the song 'Chinatown':

Japandroids

These guys are great. They've released two albums plus a 'no singles' collection and picked up seriously good reviews (including album of the year awards). Many of the songs reference Vancouver, most notably 'Darkness on the edge of Gastown'.

It's a fairly raw, energetic sound, similar to the Hold Steady but with more of a punk element.

Youtube video for 'The house that heaven built':
