Time Warp, 1983

Do you ever have those weeks where you put your head down for one second and Monday becomes Thursday and blink once more and it’s Friday?!

TIME WARP

It's astounding. Time is fleeting.
Madness takes it's toll. Ahh.
But listen closely.  Not for very much longer...

You are welcome for that bit of awesomeness.

The other night I had the pleasure of attending, 104.3’s #vanCOVER Party, and we experienced a time warp of a different variety.

cue: 1983.

The party was hosted at Imperial on Main St, in Vancouver and none other than our own GastroChic by night here on LBH Taylor J… by day she is AKA: 104.3 Program Director, party planner, purveyor of all Time Warp  #vanCOVER details. Taylor & her team created a night to remember! Not only had they put together a party of epic proportions, my sweetest in the world (insert eye lash bat. ha) BF can attest to that after he had to endure my late night stumble in, but it was all for a very good cause Music Heals.

Music Heals is a not-for-profit society incorporated in British Columbia and is registered with Canada Revenue Agency as a charitable foundation.

 The night it self was a musical showcase featuring a mixture of vanCOVER contest winners & additional special guests. The bands played two songs each one being their winning cover song. It was a ridiculously fun reason to gather, re-done those tacky 80’s prom dresses and dance the night away.


Tonight we heard The Gay Nineties, Chersea Music, Jon Bryant, Bend Sinister, & to bring it all home with a classic Clash beat.. the Odds!


vanCOVER: Those at Woodstock saw firsthand how The Beatles inspired Joe Cocker. Nirvana’s performance of “The Man Who Sold the World” on MTV Unplugged was a clear demonstration of Bowie’s influence on Kurt Cobain. Clapton, U2 and then Guns and Roses: They all paid tribute to Dylan with their rendition of Knocking on Heaven’s Door. We want to hear who inspires your music.

Introducing LG 1043’s vanCOVER: A Tribute Project to the Greatest Hits. BC’s most talented bands putting their spin on the legends who inspire them.

Bands enter one, radio quality recording of a song from the 70’s or 80’s.
The song submitted should reflect the greatest hits format of LG 104.3 – popular songs from the rock, pop, disco, adult contemporary and new wave genres.

And every month LG will reward the top covers with $1000’s in cash: 1st place will receive $5,000 and 2nd place receives $1,000!


Huge Thanks to LG 104.3 for having me & a definite honourable mention to my Sanctuary at Eastwood Cycle, for rescuing me Friday morning from what could have potentially been a destructive hangover.

#lifehack you CAN sweat out a hangover, it’s proven. ahem, by me.

You know when your fearless pack leader, Meaghan is calling you out on being hungover, a good work out to follow is inevitable. I had to laugh as Kris Kross’s “Jump Around’ made the playlist that morning.. it’s seems it was a time warp, indeed.
