Metal Radio Show “POWERCHORD” Celebrates 25 Years With Epic Concert – May 21st – Vancouver

Metal radio show Powerchord is celebrating 25 years on the airwaves on Vancouver’s CITR 101.9FM.

Founded by Metal Ron and Gerald Rattlehead in 1985 and now continued by DJs Geoff “The Metal Pimp”, Marcia “The Mistress of Metal”, and Andy,  Powerchord is Vancouver’s longest running metal show. Over the years, the show has become a staple of Vancouver’s metal community by continuously supporting and informing the masses about both independent and mainstream metal in Vancity’s metal scene.

“Powerchord would not have been able to continue without all the loyal metal fans and array of metal talent, which reigns in BC. The fact that Powerchord has been able to continue running for 25 years is a huge feat in the history of Canadian metal proving that no matter how many challenges we face, the metal scene in Vancouver is strong and will continue to bang on for a long time to come.” commented Powerchord DJ Marcia Downham.

In celebration of this feat, Powerchord is putting on an epic headbanging party with headliners Woods of Ypres along with locals Titans Eve, Scissortooth, Scythia, Magnus Rising and Auroch at Vancouver’s famed Rickshaw Theatre (254 East Hastings).
