Hot off of the success of Rifflandia, Anian’s yard party is back, but with a twist. On October 17th, the yard will be transformed once again from off-the-grid surf shop to live music venue. FALL FUNK showcases a surprise headliner (a previous winner of the Peak Performance Project and one of Vancouver’s top bands), and openers Boomshack. Featuring a curated fashion show of established artisan makers (Anian Manufacturing, Zaleska Jewelry, and Crow Apparel), the goal is to use the yard’s sold-out event reputation to propel attendees to think about where their goods are coming from. This is a licensed event, with beer from Phillips Brewing Company and cider from Merridale Ciderworks. Tickets are pre-purchase only and can be found at http://www.anianmfg.com and at Anian’s Victoria storefront on 516 Discovery Street.
Here’s a little taste of what to expect from the night’s musical selection:
