VAL 3 YEAR ANNIVERSARY AT THE VILLA!
With Smart Bar DJs:

After the ashes have settled, a broken city sprawls the landscape, climbing ever higher in a race to bottom. Hollow apartments lay atop the venues of seasons past, leaving a city with nothing to eat but it's children.
With local support by
Derivatives (Sacred Sound Club, Vancouver)
Nancy Dru (Subversive, Vancouver)
Tienn (UnderG, Vancouver)
Villianous power-brokers snatch up art and culture, quickly buying up all the creative spaces for their private control. Any music or art created outside these grasps is treated as an illicit activity.

Despite all of the challenges we are here. Step inside your private recluse. A space that was made for you. Against all odds, built without a blueprint, travelled to without a roadmap. The VAL Villa, our third location. Here for today. Gone tomorrow.
