LETTER: Need to support local, Chilliwack music scene

Editor:

Calling out to all Chilliwack indie music lovers, specifically those who enjoy Jian Ghomeshi and The Drive on CBC Radio2 with Rich Terfry.

There is something you need to know about and support—The Acoustic Emporium.

These guys are doing something in our small town that is usually only enjoyed by people living in big cities—they’re bringing in young, talented bands in a unique and intimate setting.

Downtown needs more life. We do have a couple of great restaurants, in Rustica’s and Bravo, and adding this venue to the list of things to do in downtown Chilliwack is a huge bonus. So check them out at www.acousticemporium.com for upcoming  shows—a bargain at only 10 bucks.

Get off the couch and away from the big screen and come out and help make The Acoustic Emporium a permanent fixture in the Chilliwack nightlife scene.
