From August 7 to 14, Salt Spring Coffee is teaming up with Here There to bring Vancouverites Island Time, a week-long pop-up experience with a Truly West Coast flavour. Between now and then, we’re chatting up a few of the fine folks you’ll be seeing there to find out what “island time” means to them.
Meet Adam Caddell, co-producer of Sofar Vancouver
Sofar hosts intimate gigs in amazing spaces and places around the world. For our Island Time pop-up, Sofar has pulled together an exciting (and top-secret!) lineup of musical acts for an evening to remember on Wednesday, August 10. The show is by donation, but make sure to RSVP!
Q. What can people expect from you at the Island Time pop-up?
Attendees can expect an evening of great music, free of the typical distractions you would experience in a live music venue. We’re really excited for the artists, since they’re all fantastic and they wouldn’t normally play on the same stage in the same evening.
Q. Why did you want to be part of this event?
We’re excited to partner with Here There, and took the opportunity when we had the chance! I had actually been a contestant in a dumpling eating contest at the golden dumpling derby in 2014. Ken and Lizzy have a real knack for putting together an activation that makes for a memorable experience.
Q. What does “island time” mean to you?
Island time, for me, is a feeling. A break from the hustle and bustle of our everyday—a chance to move at the pace you would if you were on a vacation somewhere warm and beautiful. Not unlike how it feels when you come to a Sofar event and enjoy a night of uninterrupted live music.
