MUSIC NOTES: Surrey rapper tour Snoop Dogg Vancouver date Tuesday

Merkules wraps up tour with Snoop Dogg in Vancouver, Brass Camel rocks prog-rock, Mother Mother's homecoming concert, and new Van Halen book.

Merkules, the Surrey-raised rapper, has had an incredible year so far, touring arenas across Canada as the opener for hip-hop legend Snoop Dogg. The "Cali To Canada" journey will come to an end on Tuesday night at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, with Warren G. and others joining the final concert.

Throughout the tour, Merkules has shared the experience on social media, documenting it with photos, videos, and heartfelt posts. He expressed his gratitude and excitement for the last show in his hometown, Vancouver, where he will bring the tour to a close. Reflecting on his journey from rapping in the mirror as a child to sharing the stage with Snoop, Merkules is emotional and grateful for the opportunity.

Signed to Death Row Records, now owned by Snoop, Merkules has also opened for Ice Cube and recently released a new video, "Ten Toes," which has garnered significant views on Youtube. His collaboration with Big B on the song "2 Choices" explores pivotal moments in life's path.

Brass Camel, another Surrey-raised talent, brought their prog-rock sound to the Hollywood Theatre in Vancouver, opening for Jesse Roper. With influences from classic bands like Rush and Queen, Brass Camel's energetic performances have captivated audiences for seven years. They are set to perform at the Salmon Sessions Music Festival in Surrey next.

Jesse Roper, known for his infectious mix of R&B, blues, rock, and country, continues to charm audiences with his lively performances. With upcoming shows in B.C., including the Laketown Shakedown, Roper's music celebrates the simple joys of life and the thrill of performing.

Mother Mother, a popular Canadian band, recently performed at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, drawing in a crowd of enthusiastic fans. While their set list focused on newer songs, some classics were notably absent, leaving long-time fans wanting more. The band's evolving sound and growing popularity indicate a shift towards a new generation of listeners.

For music enthusiasts, the book "Van Halen at 50" by Martin Popoff offers a comprehensive look at the iconic rock band's history. With a focus on the tumultuous relationships within the band and their enduring legacy, the book provides an insightful read for fans of Van Halen and rock music in general.
