A Queer & Trans Cover Band Show! May 30 @ 8PM @ Pirates


A cover band show is a place we create for you to bring yourself and your friends together, play music, sing songs, have some good old DIY fun!

$5 at the door or pay what you can. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.

Proceeds from the show go to the Abundant Bodies track at the Allied Media Conference.
Check out the details here: https://talk.alliedmedia.org/content/abundant-bodies-media

This space is prioritizing queer/trans people of colour, black, indigenous, women, disabled people and all those that are underrepresented and alienated from the music scene. Let’s build our own beats to break down barriers and help create a music scene that aims to be safe, inclusive and empowering. Have no shame in your skill level. You can do it!

Contact radicalcoverbandshow.to@gmail.com for assistance finding people to play with, borrowing instruments and finding practice space.

Closed Jan 10 – 19 for renos

Our ANNUAL RENOVATION CLOSURE has been moved back until FRIDAY JANUARY 10th. We will be closed every day starting January 10th through January 19th. We will be re-open on MONDAY JANUARY 20th for all regular advertised hours.

If you want to volunteer to help with our renovation period (which will involve a lot of sorting, cleaning, and organizing) you can drop by any day between NOON AND 6PM.

Winter and “Holiday” Hours?

Bike Pirates aims to be open all of our regular, advertised hours throughout the year.
You should always check here if you think we might be closed for some reason, including holidays and extreme weather. Our goal is to remain accessible and reliable to you as much as possible!

To this end: WE WILL BE OPEN Thursday December 26th regular hours, and through the coming week INCLUDING Tuesday December 31st (5-9pm).

Our ANNUAL RENOVATION CLOSURE has been moved back by a week this year so that we can accommodate folks during the first week of January while most regular bike shops are closed. Many bike shops will not be open again until January 6th, so we will not close for renos until FRIDAY JANUARY 10th. We will be re-open on MONDAY JANUARY 20th.

Stay warm and dry, and ride with caution during winter weather.
