PENDER is the musical equivalent of Neil Young's Crazy Horse and Wilco having a potluck with Nirvana and Evan Dando. A gathering of influences of country through punk rock, 80s synth to brit pop beats and a side of grunge for good measure served on unpretentious white paper plates. Named after the Vancouver street that's a backdrop for their musical and non-musical fun loving debauchery, vocalist Chris Kelly, guitarist Ryan Ogilvie, drummer Brett Galliford, keyboardist Lara Farcasan and bassist Derrek Kittson sizzle through a casual set that turns any scene into a fun party, combined with a sense of earnest vulnerability uncommon in today's modern rock.
