Miesha & The Spanks w/ The Franquilizers, Fat Cop

April 15, 2017 @ 9:00 pm - 2:00 am
The Apollo Canada

Loud, sweaty, sweet rock n roll- Miesha & The Spanks are two of Calgary AB's busiest road junkies- and they are back in Thunder Bay at The Apollo on Saturday April 15, joined by The Franquilizers and Fat Cop! Miesha Louie and Sean Hamilton’s brand of garage rock sits somewhere between the timeless jam of The Runaways and scrappiness of The Gits, with just enough influence from 50s girl-group romanticism to catch a case of pop sensibility. They’re explosive together…

Daniel Romano

July 17, 2019 @ 8:00 pm
$10

Daniel Romano hails from Welland, Ontario, site of old-world canals, post-industrial exodus, and downtown deterioration. A visionary writer, producer, musician and artist, he calls his sound “Mosey” music, and his sixth album "Modern Pressure" (May 19, 2017) refines and defines what that sound is: a deft manipulation of genre and form; intricate layers and wild arrangements; the kinetic energy of inspiration and creativity. The history of popular music is malleable in Romano’s hands, and he crafts songs that are both familiar…

|Recurring Event (See all)

One event on August 6, 2019 at 9:00 pm

Hailing from Elora/Guelph ON, The Boo Radley Project is an eight piece (and sometimes larger depending on who is in town) genre-bending collective that fuses funk, indie, jazz and literary prowess. They've been likened to everyone from Tower of Power and Mr. Bungle to The Cat Empire and Wilco. But really, they're just Boo, a ragtag group of brothers serving up a quirky, fresh approach to music. “I HAVE A HARD TIME PUTTING MY FINGER ON WHAT THIS BAND IS…

The Faps

July 30, 2019 @ 9:00 pm

Blair Colwell and Skyler Cafferata have been creating music together for over 10 years, developing a sound that is both broad and focused. Between the two of them, artistic influences are vast, but collide among Nick Cave, Man Man, and Daughters. Their brand of fast, heavy music is rooted in post-punk and noise rock, but flirts with blues, jazz, psych, and pop. Often built on quick danceable rhythms and catchy guitar lines, their songs showcase an affinity for experimenting with…

Doreen / Lord Hidetora

August 21, 2019 @ 9:00 pm

https://doreenconjures.bandcamp.com/ With a world-worn skepticism toward belonging, Edmonton’s Doreen conjures impressionistic post-punk at odds with easily marketed identity. Inspired by the playful irreverence of bands like Swell Maps and Orange Juice, with the lyrical fervor of an ill patient desperately trying to reach beneath the surface, Doreen spits out songs both dancey and dour, complex and ragged. The four members, Joshua Carson (guitar/vocals), Matthew Punyi (drums), Kevin Holowack (bass), and Damian Hockley (guitar/vocals), live, eat, and snore together, and the…
