Grand Finale Concert – Rural Alberta Advantage (September 8)
The Rural Alberta Advantage’s percussive folk songs about hometowns and heartbreak, and relentless tradition of touring have taken the trio from humble recognition amongst indie rock die-hards as “Canada’s best unsigned band” to sold-out tours and devoted fans around the world with featured coverage from Spin Magazine, Pitchfork, The New York Times and Rolling Stone all taking note. The band has been nominated for two 2012 Juno Awards (Best New Group and Video of the Year for their song “Stamp”), long listed for the 2011 Polaris Award, and awarded the CBC Music Prize for Best Independent Artist in 2014.
What You Missed This Past Summer
Terence Jack (May 26)
Terence Jack is the Vancouver based indie rock singer/songwriter-turned band. Terence Jack stepped down from over a decade of running his own travel adventure company in order to dedicate himself entirely to music back in August 2015. He’s emerged with an energetic and refreshingly authentic sound on his latest EP Never Get Back. Never Get Back is driven with a West Coast rock energy, calmness, and integrity that comes from his road-worn travels and is packed with epic dynamics, big builds, and heartfelt stories. It’s a hooky album with a polished sound, yet it never loses its inherent rawness and honesty. $35.00
Band of Rascals (June 23)
Some of the finest foot stompin, hoot’n and holler’n, hoe down, craze driven, tasty blues born rock n roll that you’ll find this side of the country. The Victoria based four-piece has quickly established itself as a major force in the Western Canadian music scene; the result of an overwhelmingly successful year of sold out shows, multiple festival slots and the release of their critically acclaimed self-titled debut EP. Blending elements of hard-hitting modern rock with the vintage aesthetic of southern blues (think Kings of Leon and the Black Keys), Band of Rascals has created an evocative sound, captivating audiences of all ages. $40.00
Daniel Wesley (July 28)
If making music isn’t about having fun, what’s the point in doing it? That philosophy sums up Daniel Wesley’s new album, I Am Your Man, the 33-year-old Vancouver-based singer/songwriter’s seventh studio offering. As he nears the end of his career’s first decade, what comes across most vividly on the record – as longtime fans will surely note – is the balance Wesley has found in his life both on and off stage. I Am Your Man is essentially Wesley returning to his natural strengths as a groove-based acoustic troubadour, following heavier electric experiments on his previous two records. $45.00
Lovecoast (August 25)
Since their inception in 2013 Lovecoast has been delivering a new sound that won’t go unnoticed. By bringing together modern day indie pop and blue-eyed ’70s r&b, the band has created something bouncy and infectious. Lovecoast finds inspiration in modern acts like the Cat Empire and Lake Street Dive, and classic legends such as Billie Holiday and Bruce Springsteen. Uniquely fresh and nostalgic all at once, Lovecoast is an up-and-coming act from the West Coast of Canada to watch. $40.00
