It’s all about the music, and it’s all about the rock show. The spectacle on stage features Natte standing—and often jumping up and down—on his throne while pounding the drums; Tomy using all four limbs in parallel to conjure as much sound out his guitar and voice as possible; and Connor slapping his bass and complimenting Tomy's rich tenor voice with wildly interesting harmonies! This trio has the crowd entertained and on their feet all night long! They are a memorable act, and after the laughs, shakes and cheers fans leave smiling and humming their tunes. The Carbons give everything to their act. And when they get on stage, the crowd gives it all b... more...

From the curvy basslines of house and garage flavor to jackin electro funk and breaks she's got you covered. No doubt she always has everyone on the dancefloor, feet smiling. Originally hailing from Alberta she has integrated well into Victoria DJ culture playing all the venues that have ever been graced with turntables. There's no need to go to market, this girl is a one stop shop dj tour de force, and she has everything you need right here.

MARLEE
djmarlee.com / Marlee Presents

DJ Marlee first stepped to the decks at age 19 and enjoyed a meteoric rise within Canada’s West Coast scene, particularly hometown Victoria BC where she was known for creating romping dance floors through dirty rhythms and big bass. She packed clubs, stood beside legends, and carved herself a loyal following but 15+ years later Marlee is rediscovering her first love and focusing on the music before the scene.

“I haven’t retired,” Marlee says. “But I used to be so full-on and just live and breathe it all the time. Now music is more of a garnish on my life, instead of the full meal deal.”

The step back has allowed her to focus on producing tracks and by only playing when and where she feels excited Marlee is bringing a passion back to her live shows that she believes may have been left on the roadside in the days of rushing from clubs to rave to radio to residency.

“I realized I have all these tracks I started putting together but haven’t finished,” she says. “And I’ve bought and sold and re-bought and re-sold my gear so many times now it’s a bit of a mish-mash, but when I step up to the decks these days the energy feels new.”

That fresh energy is evident in new tracks and also in a new focus to pass her knowledge onto a new generation. Marlee’s beats still slam, her build-ups still melt faces but there is a confidence behind it all that comes with doing things on her own terms.

“It’s fun again,” Marlee says, “and that reminds me of those early days when I first fell in love with electronic music. Except now I realize I don’t need to be here every minute of my life– it’s an incredibly freeing feeling and isn’t that really what this music is supposed to be about? Freedom?”

When catching a live DJ set, Jon’s well known for his high energy, precision mixing, and ability to change up the vibe in the room on a dime. No dance floor is safe when it’s his turn to take the stage.

Mon. June 4th  Postdata

Postdata @ Copper Owl Jun 4 2018 - May 21st @ Copper OwlPOSTDATA Live at Copper Owl The frontman of beloved Nova Scotia alternative outfit Wintersleep, Murphy has built a circle of collaborators, friends, and family around him for more than a decade. Murphy first released music with Postdata in 2010, a self-titled debut that saw him working with his brother Michael to record a set of songs that dealt with family, legacy, and connection. Now, Postdata returns with Let’s Be Wilderness, a record characterized by those two old bickering friends: love and death. The 10-track record came together much the same as Murphy’s other projects: through a community of friends and family. A vacation in Europe found Murphy ringing up friends and former tourmates Grant Hutchison and Andy Monaghan (both of Scottish indie rock triumph Frightened Rabbit). It was these meetings with old pals that birthed Let’s Be Wilderness. The cast was rounded out b... more...
