Simplicity and sincerity are dying in modern music. Where many artists feel that the concept of roots-based music focuses on the rudimentary aspects of a song's musical foundation, in the eyes of Toronto-based quartet YOUNG RUNNING, there is a lot more to tend to than just churning up some instrumental soil.
Conjoining the complimentary genres of indie, folk and roots to create a unique aural drive that is as captivating as it is distinct, their take on amalgamating the finer elements of influences including The Beatles, Radiohead, The Beauties, Iron & Wine, Death Cab For Cutie and Neil Young begets an unparalleled purity.
Don't miss Young Running as they host Memphis Tuesdays in the Drake Lounge.
Who, What, Where, When, Wednesdays!
Teams of 4 or less put their random knowledge to the test as host Terrance Balazo fires off questions ranging from sporting records and celebrity scandals to geographic discoveries and culinary lingo.
It’s only $2 to participate and the winning table gets an $80 Drake Gift Card, not to mention bragging rights! So grab a brew, enjoy a whole lot of laughs and get ready to play.
TUPPER WARE REMIX PARTY is exactly this: Daft Punk, Iron Maiden, Justice and Parliament all smashed into five spandex-clad, keytar wielding, pylon wearing, pelvic thrusting, wildly out of control individuals claiming to be from outerspace, except with way more lazers, confetti, projection screens, and sci-fi references.
Originally from Halifax and now residing in Toronto, the five “aliens” crash land into every show like missiles made of fun, bringing their ridiculous antics and self aware (but deadly serious) epic 80s inspired dance-rock and spewing it all over the audience with reckless abandon.
MOST NON HEINOUS, a brand new electro cock-rock Toronto three piece, will open the night.
Dedicated to creating a new groove-based music, THE DIGS embody the unique perspective of diversity that could only come from Canada's multicultural melting pot, Toronto. To dig is to extract from the ground by breaking up earth, and The Digs are a band reaching down into the roots of American pop music and pulling up a vibrant sound that is an organically constructed embarrassment of riches.
Ultimately, The Digs consist of close friendships built upon the love of music, and the love for one another, and it is this dedication which gives them a consistently renewed energy with each jam-packed gig, each infectious groove, each funky beat. Catch The Digs while you can!
