A night of modern Garage Surf Rock...and the celebratory release of the much-anticipated Bad Hoo / Scrunt Brothers split 7" vinyl (VRR007).

Doors 8pm, $5, 19+
Victoria’s down-tempo post-punk slackers Death Kart spill their guts with the lo-fi richness required to spin lysergic daydreams into hazy somnambulisms.
The Foreign Resort are Denmark’s finest musical export of post-punk and dark new wave. The band combines the shadowy mysticism of The Cure’s Pornography era with a driving production aesthetic akin to LCD Soundsystem.
Island Eyes are crafting exciting, experimental pop/rock that incorporates a range of instruments and electronics. Live, Islan...
Fri. September 8th Versa, Nashlyn, Prince Shima
2100 tba at the door only.
VERSA \ (Guelph/Toronto ON)
experimental instrumental & responsive pychedelic visuals
Surreal and shimmering, VERSA performances capture eyes and ears with powerful instrumental music and responsive live projections. Their psychedelic performance employs the physics of music, rendering low frequency sound visible as it is passed through a subwoofer into a colourful liquid basin. VERSA is an audio/visual collective based in Guelph and Toronto, led by artist Monika Hauck and musician Alex Ricci. VERSA has performed at numerous Canadian music and arts events including Hillside Festival (Guelph ON), Hold Fast Contemporary Art Festival (St. John’s NL), Grickle Grass Festival (London ON), Kazoo! Fest (Guelph ON), Night\Shift Place-Hacking Festival (Kitchener ON), Wavelength Music Festival (Toronto ON), and Nuit Blanche (Ottawa/Gatineau, ON).
Sat. September 9th Firestarter, Also Also Also, Timing X, DOMESTICATED
1830 - 2130 doors at 1800 $10 at the door only.
Early show! Doors at 6:00, bands at 6:30!
firestarter (album release!)
firestarter is an apt name for Jaye Kovach's bubblegum-industrial avant-pop project. Her blistering guitar and synths sizzle and sputter out from around raw, thick drum machine beats - ember-like slow-burns radiating intense, glowing heat, and flared-out rave-ups that blaze furiously from a solid core of incandescent punk. It's also a fitting word for Jaye herself; her politically pyrotechnic lyrics on firestarter's first release, 2016's self-released Es-tro-jen-z, bring the album's digitally-mutated hooks into shape with sharp, agile broadsides against tyranny and brutality of all sorts, an explosion of synthetic artistic energy that clears the earth to make way for a better and more meaningfully human tomorrow.

Thu. September 28th Hermitess, The Backhomes, HANSMOLE
2000 $10 at the door only.
The Hermitess is the solo project of songwriter and harpist Jennifer Crighton, who comes by way of various other musical incarnations, including The Consonant C and Devonian Gardens. Stripping back the performance to a harp and a circle of women's voices, the Hermitess is an inquisitive, contrary, wounded, wise and ever dreaming incantation
“The Backhomes, with their futuristic sounds, are alerting us to the fact that the future is unknown, something that we innately fear. Whether it will turn out to be as ghastly as our worst nightmares or as heavenly as our sweetest dreams may come down to the subtle difference in how we perceive it.” (RIDE THE TEMPO)
Hansmole is the bedroom electro-pop project of Victoria-based artist Hannah van Adrichem.
