WONDERFUNC
Wonderfunc is a deep tech-house underground wizard who shifts his time between the rich coasts of Central America and Canada.

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...

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.

Blackwood Kings, Boomshack, chris jones @ Copper Owl Sep 6 2018 - Aug 16th @ 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.

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.
