Billie Zizi, Songs From The Black Lodge, Scars and Scarves @ Copper Owl Oct 27 2016
$8 at the door only.

Sure, there's plenty of Gypsy violin(courtesy of Zizi's pops, Cam Neufeld) scattered throughout, snaking through Windog Blues, bringing an irresistible jauntiness to Dancing Shoes, but Zizi's heart is apparent when she slows everything down to mournful. Like the looping backwards guitar melting into the sparsest of intros on You Do Me No Good, with Zizi abandoning almost all lyrical drive by simply repeating in an oddly matter-of-fact voice “drag me down” over and over again on the chorus, or the long, slow build in Jukebox Baby, leading to chaotic squalls of Zizi's guitar.

Each composition is unique. His eclectic styles range from Eastern-infused downtempo and detailed IDM to psychedelic crunk and epic orchestral glitch-hop." Hello Moth, as described by Sled Island: "Expressive keyboards stretch into filmic expanses that wouldn’t be out of place in an art-house score.

Fri. November 25th  The Tourist Company, San Felix

The Tourist Company, San Felix @ Copper Owl Nov 25 2016
$10 at the door only.
The Tourist Company has outright rejected the idea of being confined to the limits of one genre or sound. Chalk it up to living in Vancouver that this eclectic group feel far from settled. The group has toured multiple times across Canada, sharing the stage with several of Canada’s elite rock and alternative groups including We Are The City, Dear Rouge, and Fast Romantics, and garnered extensive radio airplay. “We truly feel as though we have had a wild first chapter as a band and are ready for the next musical mission”, said lead singer and songwriter Taylor Swindells. Their next offering to the world? Apollo, the group’s long awaited debut LP. In itself, the word Apollo can conjure up many images, the most obvious being the US space missions of the 1960’s and 70’s, which ultimately put man on the moon. In Greek and Roman mythology, Apollo was known as the god of music... more...

They morph, twist and tangle until they become something neither could have become on its own. So it went with bands Red Haven and Dirty Grace, who collided and began performing as one group in the summer of 2015. After bringing Vancouver songstress Logan Thackray and lifelong creator/performer Aubrey Burke (raised in a full-time clown family) into the mix, the new ‘super band‘ consisted of 8 unique voices/songwriters forming a veritable choir. The Mother Lovin’ Honey Tongues were born, as was a new distinct genre – ‘Swamp Opera... more...
