* Featuring an interview with Myriam Steinberg, artistic director of the In The House Festival *

Vancouver music lovers have been gifted, this coming Saturday, with a free outdoor homecoming concert by The New Pornographers!  This Vancouver super group, featuring the world-class songwriting talents of Carl Newman (Superconductor, Zumpano) and Dan Bejar (Destroyer), has recorded five albums of effervescent power-pop, as well as giving birth to numerous solo efforts from the band’s other key singing voices Kathryn Calder and Neko Case.  Today on the show you can hear a selection of tunes by the band, recorded between 2000 and 2010.

This year, the In The House Festival is celebrating 10 years of opening the homes of local residents, to host an array of outstanding musical, comedic and theatrical talent.  Festival director Myriam Steinberg phones through today to chat about the origins of this unique and amazing community-building festival and to encourage listeners to attend the 10-year anniversary gala and fundraiser, which is being held next Thursday night at Famee Furlane Hall, 2605 E.Pender St, Vancouver.

The yearly DOXA documentary film festival is being held this weekend in Vancouver.  In the second half of the show today I review local production ‘East Hastings Pharmacy’ , directed by Antoine Bourges, which is being shown on Sunday at 2pm. MG
