Free Olympic Live Music

All the naysayers seem to neglect to mention the huge injection into the Vancouver art scene the Olympics is. BOB has the Trimpin installation in their offices, the Artwalk starts this weekend, I’ve already seen the Blue Dragon, I’m seeing the Neil Young Project at the Queen E, and I’ve mentioned the free Wilco concert before, but my coworker Will just sent me this list of free shows in Vancouver all starting this Friday.

All times are PM, as in the evening after work.
