Event Archive - Rodney Decroo and his Convictions, Hank Pine & Lily Fawn, The Strange Magic

Fri. July 10th 2009 Railway Club (No Minors)
Not only do critics frequently call poet-rocker Rodney DeCroo one Canada's finest songwriters and lyricists, they also call his Convictions on of the finest folk-rock bands around. They'll have you eating out their hands on moment and when you get to close punch you in the face.
"Put the gruff-but-sensitive singer-songwriter in just about any other Canadian city besides Vancouver and you’re looking at a sold-out show and maybe even a little bit of hysteria over one of the finest tunesmiths out there. Run, don’t walk, in other words, before he pisses off to Montreal or something!"

Hank is a tall, dark, and mysterious figure in goggles and a mask that carries his dead girlfriend around in a garbage bag, plays the cello, keyboards, guitars, ukulele, accordion, drums and whatever else he can get his hands on. Lily, a half-deer, half-human forest creature, that tap-dances and plays the musical saw, the trumpet, the theremin, the flute, and hits the drums like a six-foot sledgehammer.
Prepare to get hypnotized by West Coast Canadian / Japanese Art-Rockers who come armed with electric/acoustic guitars, Moog Synths and four part harmonies
as they draw from the timeless harmonic tradition of 60's Psychedelic bands and futurist electronic artists!
"The Strange Magic sounds like the R.A.D.I.O. after a high-gloss a happier version of the Velvet Underground with the odd Japanese lullaby thrown in."
— The Georgia Straight
