Fri. March 3rd  Zoo Riots, Peach Pit, Andrew Phelan , Teenage Wedding

Zoo Riots, Peach Pit, Andrew Phelan , Teenage Wedding @ Copper Owl Mar 3 2017
2100
$10 at the door only.
Zoo Riots With a loud and frenzied live show that dips heavily into the melodic and mysterious, Zoo Riots’ competing influences of psychedelia, indie, blues, and soul merge to full effect. Intricate vocal and guitar harmonies, thundering dual percussion, and groove heavy bass lines are key features of their ever expanding sound that aims to keep audiences guessing as much as dancing. PEACH PIT With lyrics rooted in high school heartbreak and self deprecation, Peach Pit spin stories of backstabbing best friends and drug addicted tour guides. Having the dance moves of an epileptic headbanger and the body of a 14 year old girl, Neil brings a unique energy to their live shows while the rest of the band does their best to keep it weird. Andrew Phelan "Andrew Phelan has a sleeper of a voice-the kind that can lull one moment, and knock you back with its power the next" - Sa... more...

2100 - 0200
$8 before 11 at the door only.
Future Soul presents 'Something Darker' This time we invite you to explore the depths with us as we turn to the darker side of our souls to experience the gritty, brooding sounds of Vancouver stalwart; Kir Mokum Bio: We had two bags of white labels, seventy-five Dbridge records, five sheets of old Metalheadz pr releases, a saltshaker half-full of Seba's hair, and a whole galaxy of multi-colored Good Looking, Prototype, Inperspective and Soul:R records. Also, a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a copy of that 0=0 record that never came out on Planet Mu, and two dozen dj mixers with no mids. Not that we needed all that for the trip, but once you get locked into a serious drum and bass collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can. The only thing that really worried me was the Calibre. There is nothing in the world more helpless and irresponsible and ... more...
