Vancouver music lovers have been gifted, this coming Saturday, with a free outdoor homecoming concert by The New Pornographers! This Vancouver super group, featuring the world-class songwriting talents of Carl Newman (Superconductor, Sampan) and Dan Bejar (Destroyer), has recorded five albums of effervescent power-pop, as well as giving birth to numerous solo efforts from the band's other key singing voices Kathryn Calder and Nek Case. Today on the show you can hear a selection of tunes by the band, recorded between 2000 and 2010.
