Specific to Vancouver though, there's 99.3 the Fox (generic rock radio station), there's 'The Invisible Orange' (awesome name, but they seem to book the wrong shows business-wise), and more recently, 'Densixx Entertainment'.
I really want to like The IO, but they book a lot of obscure bands that won't earn them much money (which makes them pass up actually awesome tours), and then half of the time when they do
book awesome tours, it's at 19+ venues.
Related to the OP: Dammit I want to see Kalmah. I don't even know their material very well.
