The award winning Bombargo is a movin’ and groovin’ goodtime'n band from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Having opened for legendary acts like John Butler Trio, Michael Franti & Spearhead, and Joel Plaskett; Bombargo has been rapidly making a name for themselves through their passionate live show, conscious message, and catchy-groovin’ hooks.

With accolades from pop icon Taylor Swift, who added Bombargo’s single “Mr. No Good” to her Spotify playlist “Songs Taylor Loves”; their new single “All the Same” being #1 on Spotify’s Indie Allstar playlist; and having billionaire and music industry legend, Richard Branson’s approval: “Bombargo is going to the moon! That Nathan Thoen has got the moves like Mick Jagger” the group is well on their way to becoming a household name, globally.

Bombargo’s music brings a vibrant splash of soul to their funky indie vibes with layers of pop, rock, and R&B infused throughout; they’ve created a sound that truly moves and grooves, inspiring sing along anthems, magical harmonies, and a heartfelt message that leave sold out shows across Canada wanting more.

Bombargo is currently planning their world tour to coincide with their debut album release as their 7-piece formation for 2019. In the meantime, they’ll be headlining festivals throughout the summer, touring Canada in the fall, and getting spun on radio stations across North America.

Mystery Lover

Formed just one year ago, Victoria Indie Rock/Mystic Emo band Mystery Lover have already established themselves as a promising new act on the local music scene, playing 20+ shows at almost every live music venue in town, and on a BC tour this past summer. Their music calls on a diverse array of influences such as Death Cab for Cutie, Mount Eerie, Bon Iver, Japandroids and the Hotelier and is informed by sonic and poetic explorations of Eros/romance, archetypal symbolism and myth, our local urban and natural spaces and an oceanside view of churning emotional waters. They have recently finished recording their debut LP at Fat Dad studios, to be released sometime in late 2018/early 2019.

Heavydive (CALGARY)

Based in Calgary, Alberta, Heavydive is a three-piece rock band that mixes post-punk rhythms and shoegaze soundscapes with dreary, yet angelic, vocals reminiscent of Ian Curtis, Morrissey, and Robert Smith. Inspired by the turmoils of mental illness, escaping emotional abuse, and the fear of failure, their work soars and crashes with sonic intensity that brims with melancholy, uncertainty and hope.

Tue. October 2nd  Scenic Route to Alaska, Peach Pyramid

Scenic Route to Alaska, Peach Pyramid @ Copper Owl Oct 2 2018 - Sep 25th @ Copper Owl
2000
tba at the door only.
SCENIC ROUTE TO ALASKA return to Victoria with their current album TOUGH LUCK.

SCENIC ROUTE TO ALASKA
https://www.scenicroutetoalaska.com/

Substance and accessibility. They’re often considered opposing forces when it comes to pop music, making it all the more impressive when a band like Scenic Route to Alaska so effortlessly delivers ample doses of both.
The easygoing Edmonton-based trio, comprised of Trevor Mann on lead vocals and guitar, drummer Shea Connor, and bassist Murray Wood, weaves catchy vocals and memorable melodies through rich arrangements – instantly engaging but begging to be heard again and again. It’s a coveted combination within the crowded sphere of indie rock – and one that’s rarely the product of anything but time, talent, and heaps of hard work. Of course, Scenic Route to Alaska are no strangers to any of those.
Recently, the band once again hit the studio with famed producer Howard Redekopp (Tegan & Sara, The New Pornographers) to cut the 10 tracks comprising their upcoming fourth LP, Tough Luck.

PEACH PYRAMID
https://peachpyramid.bandcamp.com/

Peach Pyramid is the brimming honesty and personal experience of one Jen Severtson. An internalized cry pulled to the surface; transformed and juxtaposed by way of graceful melodies and swirling guitars. Based in serene Victoria, British Columbia, the group explores the sounds of the pacific northwest while nodding at Jen’s upbringing in Calgary, Alberta. Repeating Myself, Peach Pyramid’s newest release, is a project recorded and produced with engineer Colin Stewart (Dan Mangan, Black Mountain, Yukon Blonde) and Kathryn Calder (The New Pornographers, Immaculate Machine) released Sept. 22nd on Calder’s newest label, Oscar St. Records. Repeating Myself explores themes of abuse and healing, glued together by Severtson’s ethereal vocals and pop hooks; Repeating Myself dives deep into the great beyond. Supported by a rotating collective of musicians/close friends, Peach Pyramid sonically exhales Jen’s intimate narrative.

TICKETS| $12

ABOUT BEN KUNDER & "BETTER HUMAN" |
"Better Human" is Ben Kunder's dazzling new album and confident follow-up to his 2015’s internationally acclaimed album "Golden". This 9 song collection fearlessly explores themes like the birth of a child, the struggle for life balance and the workday reality propping up our outward facade to name a few. Teaming up with engineer/producer Aaron Goldstein at Baldwin Street Sound last fall, "Better Human" is host to several esteemed players - bassist Anna Ruddick (Randy Bachman, Bry Webb, Ben Caplan), Arkells drummer Tim Oxford, keyboardist Anthony Carone, violinist Drew Jurecka, and drummer Loel Campbell (Wintersleep), among others. With vocal assists from luminaries Oh Susanna, Jim Guthrie, Carleigh Aikins (Paper Bird/Bahamas), Sarah MacDougall and Maïa Davies, this stellar new album will now dominate the balance of Kunder’s 2018 via tour dates across Canada, Europe, and beyond. We hope to see you out on the road to celebrate this new album and it's release into the world!

Mon. November 12th  the fifty fifty arts collective presents Odonis Odonis, Wayst, Dead Malls

2100 doors at 2000
$10 adv $15 door
the fifty fifty arts collective is
proud to present

Odonis Odonis (Toronto, ON)
http://www.odonisodonis.com/

Since their blown-out 2011 debut Hollandaze, Toronto trio Odonis Odonis has continued to push their sound further into the depths of post-apocalyptic experimentation. Following 2016's foreboding Post Plague, No Pop is the band's starker, more dance-floor-friendly fourth LP.

Executed with precision, every sonic component of No Pop commands attention. Stripping down instrumentation to a handful of synths and an electronic drum kit, the band worked quickly to write and record, bringing demos and improvised takes into the studio and completing the recording process over the course of three days. The result is a focused blend of hard-hitting industrial, techno, and noise – but each track on No Pop is never just one of those elements. Pulsing rhythms lay the ground for textural soundscapes masterfully woven together to create a palpable sense of doom that is thick and satisfying.

Taking its name from the anti-commercial No Pop movement, which infers that there "is no expiration date on music nor is it limited by geographic or regional boundaries," No Pop is raw with emotion that's elevated by deft production. Each hypnotizing meditation captures an uncomfortably honest cynicism with a brush of humor, emphasized by sparse vocals that taunt the current dystopia of technology, human emptiness and the mundane. No Pop is the soundtrack of a sinking ship, and we're all happily aboard to go down with it.
