Event Archive - A Benefit for Dark Horse Theatre Co-op featuring: eldorado, Rodney DeCroo, Swank, And Guests

Fri. November 27th 2009 Railway Club (No Minors)
8:30 PM
$10 at the door only.

Eldorado has an honest alt-country sound with roots firmly nestled in old-style country and new-style Americana/Canadiana. Tennessee born/Canadian raised, Angela Fama leads the five-piece with a sassy, sad and sweet voice that will cause you to both cry in your whiskey and then toe-tap your tears away side by side with guitarist/singer Nen Jelicic, steel/dobro guitarist Michael Flunkert (Shiloh Lindsey), bassist Julie Bavalis (Parlour Steps) and drummer Kenton Wiens.


Vancouver's Swank deliver an unholy alliance of rock, country, soul, gospel, blues and punk styles that go together like moonshine & mason jars, preachin' & sinnin', Vegas & vice. The glorious mayhem that is Swank live has earned them a loyal fan base on both sides of the Atlantic in the wake of regular hometown shows and two memorable UK/Irish tours in 2005 and 2006. Plans are currently underway for a full scale assualt upon Spain and Portugal this Fall with a salvo or two fired at the UK for good measure.

Rodney DeCroo and His Convictions:

Rodney DeCroo is frequently hailed by music writers as one of Canada's best songwriters and his band, The Convictions, as one of the best folk-rock bands around. DeCroo's songs are raw, honest, and blistering and The Convictions tear through them like a freight train carrying a load of acid, moonshine, and plenty of fuck you. Don't miss them.

Swank (Cowpunk Meets 60's Garage)

Swank's first album, "Pappy's Corn Squeezins" (2001) was conceived by the band to sound like The Ramones playing Johnny Cash. Produced by Howard Redekopp, the album was described by the legendary Ray Condo as "New Wave Country"-an apt description for a fine debut that holds its own to this day.
