Apollo Ghosts come to Smithers for Space Train 4

By this time, you might have seen a poster, a post, photos, or even attended a space train event. This live music series has been an incredible success for CICK, and we hope that those who attend, volunteer, and perform at these events feel the same way.

We are so excited to announce that the upcoming Space Train event will feature Vancouver’s Apollo Ghosts. Yes, you heard right.

Apollo Ghosts formed in 2008, and their live show currently features Amanda Panda on bass, Adrian Teacher on guitar and vocals, and Dustin B on Drums.

Their latest album Pink Tiger, is a 2-part, 22 song epic. 

Part 1 (Pink) is an intimate home recording with themes that grapple with loss, illness, death, and memory. 

Part 2, (Tiger) is an exuberant indie-garage rock celebration of the persistence of friendship, music and hope. Apollo ghosts draw on a long history of independent and locally focused music making, from Flying Nun to K Records to their own Vancouver scene, to reinvigorate indie guitar rock songwriting with ambition and poise.

I’m speaking with singer and guitarist, Adrian Teacher today on the show about the making of the record, the sense experience of live music shows, and the band’s general excitement for their first-ever show in Smithers.

So the show details are as such:

On Saturday, April 23rd ,  Doors open at 7PM

We begin the night with general revelry to which we are celebrating the lifeblood of this radio station: our volunteers. Radio of this caliber doesn't just happen – it takes time, effort, vinyl, some elbow grease, and a dash of wit, enterprise and some respect for music makers.

Everyone is welcome to join in the CICK Volunteer Awards Ceremony, and cheer on the winners and nominees of our station.

There might even be a surprise show in the mix!

Then, we take a little breather, and switch to the latter half of the night with the sweating, breathing living thing that is a dance floor in front of Apollo Ghosts.  That's at 9PM. The event turns into a 19+ event at 9, so anyone under the age of 19 will have to leave.

Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door.

For all info, please check out our Facebook event and get your tickets early!
