    “Ethereal joy…Straddling relaxed jazz, funky electronics, vaguely psychedelic rock and spatial dub.” CLASH (UK) Victoria-based ASTROCOLOR formed in 2015 to perform and record live electronic music, recalling the sounds of Air, Massive Attack, and St. Germain. The band plays on the edges of funky house, breakbeat, jazz and ambient. Astrocolor III, their final in a trilogy of EPs that released in spring 2018, sees the band’s instrumental/electronic roots expand into traditional song formats that provide smooth yet catchy beats, built equally for a night of dancing at the club or chill party vibes at home. In 2017, they grooved their way through festivals such as Rifflandia, Song & Surf, Tall Tree, and Atmosphere Gathering, as well as performances in Toronto (Canadian Music Week) and Seattle (Upstream Music Festival). Most recently, they performed to a packed audience at the Centennial Square outdoor stage for TD Victoria International JazzFest 2019. Look no further for a mood booster, as Astrocolor’s debut at Hermann’s Upstairs will transport listeners to dream-like, funk-laden atmospheres that blissfully inspire mental repose, dancing, and pure, downright fun.

    Let Us Take You There: Adam Noonan and Linda Mercer Show and Sale Art Gallery of Greater Victoria THURSDAY OCT 10 | 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM Embrace the colours of the fall season and celebrate the works of two long-standing local artists in the AGGV’s Art Rental and Sales Program. Adam Noonan is revered for his rich oil paintings and signature style of buildings and landscapes often including a path leading to somewhere curious. He uses a distinctive colour palette of oranges, reds, and golds, and his extraordinary use of shadow and light adds vibrancy to his paintings. Linda Mercer is a unique multidisciplinary artist (painter, ceramicist, and sculptor) and she expresses playful, good-natured, and often humorous aspects of her new urban world in her work such as capturing the joy of people walking their dogs. Both artists invite you to walk along the path of their imagination and ignite curiosity. Join us for a glass of wine at the Opening Reception in the Massey Sales Gallery and enjoy 10% off sales! Artist talk and Q&A starts at 7 pm. Show and Sale runs until November 9. www.aggv.ca
