Event Archive - LATE SHOW!: Orchid Highway, Top Drawers, Pepper Sands, LOCK & KEY

Sat. September 17th 2011 Railway Club (No Minors)
$10 at the door only.
Presented by: Raincity Entertainment
Orchid Highway is one of Vancouver's longest-running bands. Trousers-deep in a rapturously ongoing obsession with mid-60s Britpop and psychedelia, their music contains imaginatively melodic arrangements that would knock Brian Wilson out of his housecoat and on his fat ass in his piano-equipped sandbox and ressurect poor old Syd Barrett from the acid-casualty dead while they were at it.

THE TOP DRAWERS - Richly steeped in 1960s Brit-rock flavour, The Top Drawers are intent on reviving the joy, the energy, and the fun of rock 'n' roll. It hasn't taken them long to collect the adoration of music-scenesters and would-be-sockhoppers everywhere they've played. The band's live shows have become exuberant events characterized by call-and-answer choruses, handclaps, and barrages of lead guitar. It is unapologetically rock 'n' roll in its truest form.

PEPPER SANDS - The Pepper Sands are easily one of the more respectable modern power-pop songwriting forces Vancouver has to offer, although it would seem that they're still a hair's breadth away from the national love they truly deserve. They've toured nationally, released two full length albums and had videos in regular rotation on Much Music. They're currently hard at work on their third album.

LOCK & KEY - Lock & Key resurrects the legacy of the first wave of blues roots and rhythm. They pay tribute to giants such as Howlin' Wolf, Chuck Berry, and Bo Diddley.

The TOP DRAWERS are right up the alley of anyone who's a fan of edgy, bluesy British Invasion bands like The Yardbirds, Pretty Things and Rolling Stones. Sounding like some long-lost band that would have been tearing up London clubs in the summer of 1966, The Top Drawers are all about energy and good old-fashioned musicianship. more info
