Event Archive - Holly Jolly Triple Bill:: Henry and the Nightcrawlers, The John Pippus Band, All Purpose Voltage Heroes

Wed. December 11th 2013 Vancouver FanClub (No Minors)
9:00pm - 2:00 am doors at 8:00 pm
Henry and The Nightcrawlers

Formerly a guitarist with Bend Sinister, Henry Alcock-White leads a band that includes members of We Are The City and The Zolas.

The Vancouver Sun says:

"You have to appreciate Henry and the Nightcrawlers’ mildly vulgar, lovesick musings and take them with both a grin and chagrin. 100 Blows’ pop-laced stylistic twists conjure Elvis Costello, the Kinks and the lounge side of early punk rock, delivered unpolished and raw.”

10PM. The John Pippus Band

Vancouver music scene veteran John Pippus fronts this four-piece blues/rock band. Selected by VANMUSIC.CA as one of "The Best 10 Indie Bands of 2011", The JP Band is played regularly on Shore 104.3FM and on radio stations around the world.

The Province's Stuart Derdeyn says :

“Pippus is a refined tunesmith with serious pop hooks”.

The Vancouver Sun's Francois Marchand says:

" The Vancouver bluesman lives and breathes his musical muse".

All Purpose Voltage Heroes

Originally from Edmonton, Vancouver-based APVH toured for most of the 00's, opening for bands including Metric. They have released four albums.

Chart Attack says:

"More insane than a trip to the nut-house, this all-synth four piece band are in a league of their own. In all of their eccentricity, All Purpose Voltage Heroes, play a highly energetic and fierce set."

Two keyboards, live drums and a vocalist. "Remember that Nintendo game "Q-Bert" you used to play when you were ten? APVH sucked at it because they were too busy learning to emulate those catchy, bleepy tunes. Two keyboards, a live drummer, and a singer! Guitars are for pussies." more info
