Mint released this in conjunction with CiTR 101.9FM to help the station raise funds during their 2011 Fundrive! Proceeds from the sale of this compilation go to CiTR 101.9FM in Vancouver.
From Mint Records:
We hear a lot about Brooklyn, Montreal, and San Francisco, but think Vancouver's music community is the best around. The CiTR/Mint Pop Alliance Compilation is just that - a snapshot of our rainy city on a Friday night in 2011. It features eleven prominent local bands including: No Kids, Kellarissa (P:ano, The Choir Practice), Fine Mist, Slam Dunk, Apollo Ghosts, and many more.
