What Is Groundwerk?

Groundwerk Vancouver is a group of electronic music enthusiasts passionate about showcasing local arts and nurturing community. Our goal is to host events that serve as a hub for our community to grow by encouraging creativity, sharing knowledge, creating mentorships and fostering new connections between both newcomers and veterans in Vancouver's music scene.

What is a Listening Party?

Our listening party series is a monthly gathering where we come together in a casual setting to listen to music which has been submitted by local artists leading up to the event. Each event we gain knowledge from a keynote speaker on a range of topics relevant to pushing the music scene forward in Vancouver. These events are informal affairs, not simply for producers, but anyone who enjoys and appreciates local music.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~Wooly Bears Thursday Squares~~~~~
---- Flatfooting and Jam: 7:00PM ---- Dance: 8:30-11:00 ----

The Woolys are BACK and ready to attack with a whole new season of square dancing!

We have added a NEW FEATURE; every square dance will now start off with a flatfooting workshop! Show up right at 7, and learn how to do some fancy steppin. Try and wear some kind of shoes that can make some sort of tapping noise (NOT grippy rubber hiking soles).

If you'd rather jam than dance, bring your stringed instrument, and head to the upstairs jaming parlour from 7 till close!

Everyone can show up to hang out at 7:00, but the main square dance will start at 8:30. Come learn to dance and get yer blood movin - no experience or partner necessary! All of the dances are easy to learn and taught on-the-spot by the caller. Bring your friends, or come alone to make some new ones.

This dance is queer and trans friendly. Be any gender, dance with all genders.

You can ask anyone to dance, and you can say "no" to anyone for any reason. If someone rejects your dance invitation, please be gracious. If anyone is making you uncomfortable or harassing you, either talk to them directly, or go talk to the door volunteer or the Anza Club security guard (usually right outside the entrance door).

--------

Cost: $12 cash only (ATM onsite)

Want to get in free? Volunteer for an hour at the door! Comment below or message us to reserve a spot. 7:00, 9:00, and 10:00 hour-long shifts are still available.

ANZA UNITED!

ANZA UNITED!

The Anza Club has been an institution for many of us for more than 15 years. From the weekly Open Dex (about 750), and Open Mic being there as a place to work your craft, to the long running Nautilus nights bringing their eclectic vibe to Wednesdays, the Anza has always stood the test of time to become one of the most intimate venues in the city. Many of Vancouvers most talented artists have cut their teeth at some point in the confines of those legendary walls.
As a non profit organization , the Anza has always been driven by community in order to keep its doors open for over 75 years. This includes supplying much of the gear needed for the artists to express themselves, and that's what this fundraiser is all about.
So please join us, whether you are an artist who has enjoyed performing there, or as a member that has enjoyed so much of what the Anza has to offer, your donation will go a long way to helping continue the nights that have become a staple in underground Vancouver nightlife, and the continued development of local artists.
All performers are donating their time, and all proceeds go to the purchase of new gear for the Anza. 

Long live Anza Love


We will have Nautilus family in the main hall and ON HIGH / Open Dex playing house and techno in the lounge downstairs. 

Stay tuned for more details.
