When asked to headline the first annual Blankfest Vancouver, there were no second thoughts from Titans Eve as they were honored to help a worthy cause for the city’s street youth and shelter Covenant House, plus they were excited to play their first show since returning from their European tour with Arch Enemy.
The thrashers shared The Railway Club stage on November 10th alongside 11 other rock and metal bands from across British Columbia and Alberta, which included Matt Blais, Kathy Frank, Mad Young Darlings, The Deadwax Collective, Handsome Distraction, Cry of Silence, The Mighty One, Open Air, The Coalition, Versus The Nothing and Thorntyr. The event was able to raise over $1000 and 200 clothing items for city’s homeless.
“Blankfest was a total success. Every band was totally fantastic and the cause was inspiring! Titans Eve is proud to help Vancouver the greatest city in the world out by helping its homeless stay warm in the coming winter months. Thank you very much for supporting Vancouver!” comments vocalist/guitarist Brian Gamblin.
About: Covenant House, founded in 1997 is a non-profit organization that offers a clear exit from life on the street to youth aged 16 – 24. They make this possible through a carefully designed Continuum of Care including a daily drop-in, a 54 bed crisis shelter, transitional housing, relapse prevention and life-skills training.
Each day young people come to them damaged from the abuses of their past, desperately needing love and guidance. Over the next year more than 1,500 homeless young people will come to Covenant House Vancouver and take the first steps in creating a better life for themselves by reaching out and saying, “Can you help me?”… and together they can.
