Featuring:

WONDERFUNC
Wonderfunc is a deep tech-house underground wizard who shifts his time between the rich coasts of Central America and Canada. An experiment with drum machines and synthesizers in the lab exploded him to the wonderful world of electronic music. He now casts spells upon dance floors with intoxicating style. Fortify yourself for the potent fumes emanating from his cauldron.

LYSSA
Having spent 11 years in Mexico, and being fortunate enough to be exposed to Latin culture, Lyssa has a strong desire to explore her roots in her musical selections. Lyssa's style could be described as sexy, smooth, organic, & classy, and depending on what what mood we catch her in, expect anything from rolling Chicago house, bouncy ethnic house, deep and lush, slamming tech house, soulful funk and disco, and even quirky leftfield...

NOVA JADE
Tera "Nova Jade" Greene is an award-winning DJ since 2003 and a recent transplant from Los Angeles, CA. She has lent her eclectic musical range to a vast array of landscapes and settings, including: art galleries, fashion shows, film and music festivals, clubs, and fitness centres. Nova has opened for Grammy-nominated artists like Kelis, and played at venues like Beta Beatport Lounge in Colorado, the historic Club Avalon in Hollywood, and The Hive Bouldering Gym in Vancouver.

WALLGRIN
wallgrin.com

Harsh screeches, angelic choirs, mangled noises and soaring strings — Wallgrin creates a contemporary soundtrack for ancient mythologies. The art-pop solo project of composer, vocalist and violinist Tegan Wahlgren, Wallgrin delves into the space between beauty and dissonance through layers of strings and exploratory vocals. Drawing from an array of musical influences — including fiddling and choral singing — Wallgrin melds fragments of myths to form the music of an indistinct and personal folklore.

Wallgrin’s self-produced recorded material incorporates eclectic instrumentation, field recordings and unconventional song structures, while their live performances consist mainly of virtuosic vocal and violin electronic manipulation — all of which is centred around Wallgrin’s powerful voice. Wallgrin has shared stages with Jenny Hval, Flock of Dimes, Nicole Lizée and Holy Hum, and has been a featured performer at Music on Main, Khatsahlano, ArtsWells, Tidal ~ Signal and TEDxVancouver. Wallgrin's debut album Bird/Alien will be released via Heavy Lark Records on July 6, 2018.

Followed by late night karaoke!!

(asthe) crow flies-We've been working in Victoria for about 8 years. The pocket started out solid and has only matured. As a rock band we've played most every stage in Victoria and neighbourhood. We have toured as far as Calgary, garnering high praise at every stop. Our membership is battle-hardened, playing in such luminary projects as Carolyne Mark and Her New Friends, Ball Gag n' Chain Gang, The Ghostbirds, and Compassion Gorilla. Our eponymous self-titled album received a very warm reception from the Victoria community and sells well at every show.

https://crowflies.bandcamp.com

Zulu Panda is folksy charm and raw passion, delivered with an outstanding live presence. Hailing from Vancouver BC, this indie-rock singer-songwriter performed in every province and territory to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Canada in 2017. His music combines heartland rock with grunge while maintaining a pop sensibility. His dynamic sound is matched nicely with warm melodies and Dylanesque storytelling. He is a troubadour of sound, stage and beard. He will be touring Canada from April to August of 2018.

Loving
loving1.bandcamp.com

Loving is a Victoria basement-based trio comprised of David Parry, and brothers Lucas and Jesse Henderson. The group came together several years ago as a result of their shared summers working in the capitalist ruins of British Columbia’s forests. Together they create a warm and dreamy sonic landscape kept adrift by existentially-oriented lyrics and an unspecified, encompassing sense of nostalgia. The group is presently adding the finishing touches to their first LP, slated for release this fall 2018.

Ora Cogan http://www.oracogan.com

Ora Cogan is a unique artist who has collaborated with a multitude of artists. She has been invited to perform at festivals worldwide, toured extensively & released seven albums to date. Cogan’s new album 'Crickets' was recorded in Philadelphia with Tom Deis & released on Hand Drawn Dracula in November 2017. This complex & political record has married the intricate and atmospheric style this artist is known for with bold new arrangements that stretch out across many a sonic realm.

Black Wallace (~9:45 ~ 10:15)

Music influenced by artists such as The Velvet Underground, the pixies, Sonic Youth, Smashing Pumpkins and many others. The lyrics are honest and the music is thoughtfully arranged, falling somewhere between punk and grunge.

A live set from May of last year at the Duncan showroom:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_xSCVhVw08Q&t=421s

Mulligan ( ~10:30 ~ 11:00)

Originally a trio that decided to make music whilst mutually pulling meat, Mulligan has now morphed into a pretty okay foursome that focuses their style towards the more "alternative punk rock" range.

Safe Decisions (~ 11:15 ~ 11:45)

Modern day creators of 90's pop-punk sound with a little less pop and a little more punk.

Thu. September 6th  Blackwood Kings, Boomshack, chris jones

Blackwood Kings, Boomshack, chris jones @ Copper Owl Sep 6 2018 - Jul 21st @ Copper Owl
2000
$10 at the door only.
Blackwood Kings:

Now over five years into their lifespan, Blackwood Kings has proven to be one of the more unique bands to pop up in the Victoria BC scene. A dub-reggae crew at its core, the eclectic band also pulls from equal parts punk, prog, and jazz to make a left-field take on the genre that needs to be heard to be believed. Blackwood Kings' varied and malleable style has allowed them to share the stage with genre heavyweights such as Authority Zero, J-Boog, The Slackers, The Mad Caddies, The Skints, and Third World.

Boomshack:

Boomshack might be the hypest dance machine on the island. They play an infectious mix of jazz, funk, reggae, and Latin styles that is guaranteed to get feet stomping and bodies swaying. Their explosive live show and air-tight hooks have made them an island festival favourite, boasting appearances at the likes of Fernfest and the Victoria Ska and Reggae Fest.

Chris Jones:

As a member of local acts SweetLeaf and The Leg-Up Program, Chris Jones is no stranger to the Victoria scene. The Ontario transplant has made his presence known with catchy hook-laden songwriting and ripping guitar leads. He'll be performing a rare acoustic set. Maybe we'll even get a bluegrass song. We heard he loves bluegrass.

Tickets are $10 in advance.
