    Bruno Major splices classic singer/songwriter confessionals with sleek modern electronic production, girding the entire enterprise with hints of soul. Based in Camden, London, Major was trained as a classical guitarist and released a live EP -- appropriately called Live EP -- in 2014 but he first received attention in 2016, when he set out to release a new song every month for a full year, a project that would extend into 2017. He accompanied this steady stream of digital singles with regular live appearances in London, sometimes opening for Lianne La Havas. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

    Halifax's dance wunderkind, Rich Aucoin, will play a handful of small shows in February before the launch of his new record. Expect a sweaty video dance party with all the usual tricks and an added bonus - a pile of new songs - his best dance songs to date.

    Rich Aucoin has never been one to do things normally. You may have heard the stories by now: how he biked across Canada for childhood leukaemia research - booking his east coast shows while on the radio on the west coast. Or how, on the next tour, he ran half-marathons for a heart & stroke foundation while stopping in cities across Canada to record an album with over 500 musicians on it.

    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!

    Multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter Larry Campbell and singer-guitarist Teresa Williams’ acclaimed eponymous 2015 debut, released after seven years of playing in Levon Helm’s band – and frequent guesting with Phil Lesh, Little Feat, Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady, brought to the stage the crackling creative energy of a decades-long offstage union. A whirlwind of touring and promo followed, and when the dust cleared, the duo was ready to do it all again. Which brings us to Contraband Love, a riskier slice of Americana.

    Larry, who produced Contraband Love, says, “I wanted this record to be a progression, bigger than the first one. That’s all I knew. I wanted the songwriting to be deeper, the arrangements more interesting, the performances more dynamic. Specifically how to get there, I didn’t know. I did know the songs were different. The subject matter was darker than anything else I’ve written.”

    THIS SHOW HAS BEEN MOVED TO ADELAIDE HALL

    Rochester, New York indie electro band Joywave began in 2010, formed by vocalist Daniel Armbruster, guitarist Joseph Morinelli, bassist Sean Donnelly, keyboardist Travis Johansen (later replaced by Benjamin Bailey), and drummer Paul Brenner. Joywave first offered up a sample of their '80s-inspired electro tunes in early 2011 with the single "Golden State." They earned a fair amount of attention through a series of online mixtapes that meshed original tunes with other artists' material, all remixed to include Joywave's signature playing and vocals. In addition to these mixtapes and early single releases, the band released the Koda Vista EP in 2012 and the How Do You Feel? EP in 2014.
