Many Gigs!

It's a very busy weekend with all the groups involved in Boutique Empire.  Tonight, Nov 24th, Combine the Victorious is performing their first show in 16 months at the Railway, opening for Magik Spells (from Calgary) and Nixie.  

Tomorrow night, Nov 25th,  Guilty About Girls will be performing as part of the Telus Stage Grey Cup party (6PM) downtown Vancouver.

Then in the evening of the 25th Sex With Strangers is sharing the bill at The Cobalt with The Gay Nineties and 41st and Home. 

Combine the Victorious is in the middle of writing their third album, and their show tonight will be entirely new material, new songs, new equipment, new style.  Currently they have over half their next release written with several more ideas in the development stage.   March 2012 is the scheduled release date for the new material, tentatively titled "The Agreement."

Guilty About Girls is using their performance tomorrow night to release their latest single - Dancefloor - available now on iTunes and all other online retail stores.

After an incredibly busy year that saw them playing SXSW in Austin Texas, CMJ in New York City, the Okanogan Pop Festival in Kelowna, the Halifax Pop Explosion, as well as being a top 20 finalist in the 2011 Peak Performance Project, the members of Sex With Strangers are happy to take some time to themselves in their home city of Vancouver.  Tomorrow night's performance will be the last scheduled show of 2011 for SWS.  Plans are already brewing for them to write their next (fifth) album, more on that in the new year!

Much happening, hope you can check some of these shows out.

Also we'd like to point out that the Boutique Empire homepage has had a nice facelift (we're almost done) by the talented gentleman at  check it out!
