From jazz to slow jams and everything in between, enjoy live music from the comfort of your favourite patio or while walking down the cobblestone streets EVERY THURSDAY NIGHT from May 31 – September 5.

Gastown Thursday Nights Locations:

Blood Alley Square


The Antonio Larosa Duo 

Nostalgic, Modern Country-Rock

Antonio Larosa’s music seems to offer a unique blend of nostalgia and contemporary Canadian country-rock. Drawing inspiration from legendary artists like Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, and The Eagles, while also incorporating elements reminiscent of Eric Clapton and other modern country stars like Sturgill Simpson, Chris Stapleton, and Eric Church, he creates a distinctive sound. In 2023, Antonio Larosa’s talent and artistry were recognized when he won the “roots/canadiana artist of the year” award at the BCCMA (British Columbia Country Music Association) awards, highlighting his contribution to the Canadian country music scene.

Maple Tree Square


Cat Murphy Solo 

Humorous Folk-Rock

The Vancouver-based Cat Murphy Band is devoted to delivering spirited, high-energy folk-rock infused with humor and passion. An eclectic mix of humour, originality and musical nonsense, Cat Murphy Band won’t knock before they come in, rather kick the door down and take you hostage with their supercharged blend of folk-pop-rock storytelling. The Cat Murphy Band plays both original music and cover songs, from classics, such as Johnny Cash, to modern-day hits, like Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift. Setlists are customizable and can be tailored to suit each event’s atmosphere and audience.

Abbott x Water Street (outside of the Lamplighter)



Singer/Songwriter, Funk-Inspired Bass, Full Harmonies

Emilyn is a metro-Vancouver-born Filipino-Canadian multi-instrumental backup musician turned independent singer/songwriter and artist. With heartfelt lyrics, get-stuck-in-your-head melodies, funk-inspired bass, and full harmonies, Emilyn is here not just to create music, but community. Emilyn delivers quirky and fun performances solo, or anywhere from one to nine people in her backing band of top-notch local Vancouver session musicians. With more songs always in the works and collaborations with The Project Vancity on the horizon, there is always more coming from Emilyn!
