Late show: SLUSH Album Release Party, with BLACKED OUT, NO OTHER WAY, SHOCKLOAD
Melodic punk rock in the vein of Rise Against meets Pulley. Slush was formed in 1992 in Northern Ontario and re-located to Whistler in 1998. 20 years later Slush is still around playing their blend of technical melodic skate punk and about to release their 10th studio album to date. They've shared the stage with many of today's best punk bands (Gob, Snfu, Strung out, Protest the hero, this is a standoff, the flatliners, the real mckenzies).
Originally hailing from Banff, Alberta, Blacked Out is a three-piece punk/thrash band that now calls Vancouver home. With fast, punchy songs, constant touring, and a genuine love for havin' a good time, Blacked Out has built a strong and loyal fan base around Western Canada. Originally created by Dicker and Morgan in a dirty basement apartment, the band attracted cops, angry neighbours, and Binky the deer. Finding a bass player in Banff wasn't easy for them, but eventually some guy named Wade came over to jam and drink a few beers. The cops were there faster than ever, Wade had the worst car on the planet, and Blacked Out was born. 2009 saw the boys release their debut, full-length album entitled "Life Beyond the Line", and all their moms kinda liked it.
We must not fear change. An accumulation of influence is embraced. And with music and in life, what was once simple is now complex. A song is created, sometimes in a single evening, yet it lives forever. It should be able to stand alone, and take you on an audio voyage. After all, let's put image, marketing, branding, and industry elitism aside, and be what it is that we always have been - songwriters, performers, artists, humans following their chosen paths and loving it.
Doors: 8:30 pm. Admission: $10
