Event Archive - Invasives, Ford Pier Vengeance Trio, Hermetic

Wed. January 9th 2013 The Biltmore Cabaret (No Minors)
$8 at the door
Invasives are a trio from Vancouver BC formed in 2001 and consisting of 2 brothers Byron and Adam Slack (Vocals/Guitar/Bass) and 1 Hans Anus (Drums). The sound these fine "young" lads create is a stripped down Punk Rock devoid of cliches and Rock & Roll frippery, rebuilt and refurbished in a way that ONLY Invasives can deliver.

Having cut his teeth playing a variety of intruments in a host of bands in a panoply of styles throughout his youth, Ford Pier set his hand in earnest to writing and performing his own songs in the mid-1990's. His stated objective was to effectively fuse Black Flag and Richard Wagner in a pop song, but kept on thwarting his own design with a melodicism he was powerless to escape, and a deft lyricism which drew attention to itself. In a good way.

Hermetic is a local duo playing post-punk / weird pop.
