UBC’s CiTR radio station has teamed up with Vancouver’s Mint Records to release the CiTR Pop Alliance Compilation: Vol 2, an 11-song collection of some the city’s best underground music acts. All money raised from the compilation will go to CiTR.
The limited-edition record will be released on Feb. 24 at Vancouver’s Interurban Gallery. Scratch Records will present a concert to celebrate the release, featuring performances by compilation artists Slam Dunk, Fine Mist, Fanshaw (UBC student Olivia Fetherstonhaugh), Shane Turner Overdrive, Role Mach and Spring Break (DJ set).
The compilation also features artists such as No Kids, Apollo Ghosts, and Watermelon. A limited 200 vinyl copies will be sold at the event.
