Event Archive - The Oh Wells, On Foam Lake

$7 at the door only.
The Oh Wells began with acne, corrective dental wear, and the
inability to look the opposite sex in the eye without panicking and/or
falling in love. In other words, the Oh Wells began with high school.
At sixteen, Sarah Jickling was your average super-shy suburban teen.
She spent most of her time baking cupcakes, re-reading the Harry
Potter series and quoting Meg Ryan. Then, one day, everything changed.
Sarah and one of her super-shy friends decided to start a band.

On Foam Lake:
Four blood brothers creating infectiously catchy rock n roll laden
with synth textures, dynamic rhythms, contemplative lyricism and
luscious guitars. Thats the genius of Saskatoons post-pop rockers
Foam Lake. Equally at home with swirling keyboard tones as jagged
driven guitars, they far exceed the sum of their individual parts.
Comprehending the importance of maximizing their dynamic range, their
debut full-length Force and Matter swings from absolute thunder to
quiet whisper at the drop of a hat, while smartly abandoning frivolous
embellishment and instead delivering only exactly enough of what is
needed.
-Tyler Stewert (NXEW)
