Event Archive - ROLLAWAY CD Release Party!: Roll Away, THE JIMMY BALDWIN BAND, Kent McAlister & The Iron Choir

8:30 PM
$10 at the door only.
Rollaway’s new album, The Return of the Lonesome Coyote Patchwork Pulpit,
and Sundry Other Tales from the Rainbow's End, unites the sounds of the
Southern States and the Pacific Northwest. This record is the newest

The album, comprised of original compositions by Roark, unites his
Southern warmth with the brasher, experimental styles of Rollaway’s
Vancouverites to come up with a sound that is unique in the Vancouver
music scene. Recorded primarily in an East Van rehearsal space and spanning nearly seventy minutes, The Return is an epic indie undertaking showing depth, vision, and somehow despite the bands eclectic origins, an unmistakable sense of its Vancouver home.
