The fourth edition of Recording Arts Canada‘s Concert Showcase series took place last Tuesday, February 18 at La Sala Rossa. Local bands King Karoshi, Tofu Stravinsky, Brittany Kwasnik and Be Astronaut performed in front of a panel of judges–including record label representatives, sound engineers and recording studio owners–for the chance to win free studio time in the RAC studios.

The purpose of the RAC showcase is to give emerging artists a chance to perform in front of industry professionals with the goal of advancing their musical careers. The event is also a chance for current RAC students to gain experience doing the sound and lighting in a live setting.

The grand prize went to B.C. natives Tofu Stravinsky, who wowed the crowd with their upbeat, jazzy brand of pop.
