Be sure to join The Milk Pipes as they celebrate the release of their new CD, "Where's Lucky" with special guests My Dearest Friends, Wonderful Diving Horses & Sammy this special evening!

The MILK PIPES - Sounding like a ’63 Impala comin’ sideways around a corner on two wheels, The Milk Pipes always drop the hammer on their original tunes with a joyful and reckless abandon. Tube amps and classic guitars slash against the solid punch of a rhythm section born to serve the song while keys and ukes underpin the whole cacophony with delicious counter melodies.

MY DEAREST FRIENDS - The stirring sounds of My Dearest Friends fall somewhere between The Beach Boys and Portishead, a 1950s burger joint with rollerskates and Radiohead b-sides blaring out under the covered parking lot. Like all great art, it's indescribably focused, beautiful and irreverent, music that undeniably needs to be heard. Right. Now.

SAMMY - You'll love the juicy pop-rock sounds that are bursting to come out of this epic Canadian combo featuring former members of The Feminists, Antler and The Smears. Combining flavours along the lines of The Rheostatics, Lucinda Williams and They Might Be Giants with a groove circa Tom Petty and Lamb, Sammy embraces a certain Canadian sarcasm along with the ability to speak the truth and make it melodious.

WONDERFUL DIVING HORSES - With a shared love of rockabilly and alternative country, Wonderful Diving Horses are a roots/alt country band that combines those elements with the type of melodic pop/rock n' roll that's often referred to as power pop.
