Live at the Gallery is a monthly concert series being held at the Deer Lake Art Gallery. The February features local artists Stephen Carl O’Shea and Hargow. The event is being hosted and organized by the Burnaby Arts Council.  Live at the Gallery event will be held at 7 pm on Friday, February 9th, 2018.

Live at the Gallery is a chance to bring music into the gallery setting, to connect the visual and the musical arts, and the fans of both. Live at the Gallery is an exciting mix of art and sound! From the sweet sounds of classical music to chilled out beats of local folk bands. Expect the unexpected!

The Burnaby Arts Council are passionate about promoting the arts as a vital component of our city’s culture. We take great pleasure in offering this FREE music concert series and welcome you to the Deer Lake Art Gallery! Live at the Gallery is an opportunity for Deer Lake to have another regular venue for local musicians to play and local enthusiasts to listen. It also provides an opportunity to subvert the often rigid structure of an art gallery by having an interactive presentation being held within it.

Stephen Carl O’Shea is the bass player and co-founding member of new wave band You Say Party. He has toured across 3 continents and played hundreds of shows in dive bars and all ages spaces. He now finds himself staying closer to his home of New Westminster and exploring ambient dance music through the use of synthesizers, samples, and drum machines. His passion for arts and community building has led him to be the artistic director of Jam in Jubilee Music Festival and currently works for The Arts Council of New Westminster. Stephen released a collaborative EP entitled “Midnight Music” with Vancouver artist Holy Hum in 2016 and will be releasing more new music in 2018.
