8:00pm - 10:00pm Doors at: 7:30pm
A West Coast attitude, DIY roots, and mainstream aspirations come together in the genetic makeup of Black Pontiac: a band that has come a long way in a relatively short time. Since their formation in 2018, the Vancouver, BC quartet has steadily been making a name for themselves, selling out shows in their hometown, opening for acts such as Peach Pit and The Zolas, amassing over 1.2 million combined streams on spotify, and providing pre game and between period entertainment at Rogers Arena for the Vancouver Canucks. A fresh face in the rock world that draws from acts such as Cage the Elephant and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Black Pontiac is known for their energetic live performances and has aimed to reflect that in their debut album “From Bad to Worse (and Back Again)” coming September 9th. The band consists of lead singer Matt Purkiss, brothers Mac and Sam Riddell on guitar and drums respectively, and Avery John Shoesmith on bass.
QUEENS PARK was put together by Clayton Ikuta, Owen Rees, Sina Valizadeh, and Tom Cepeda. Driven by post-punk and garage rock, QUEENS PARK seeks to reinstate the rabbit as a symbol of power. Fuzz and droning elements establish irregular shapes as the new state of affairs. The sincere pursuit of making their friends dance is as present as lyrics asking for help to bring a balloon to the ground.
7.30pm - Doors
8pm - Showtime
We are happy to announce that we're back to hosting live music on our stage!!
With the help of FACTOR and Creative BC from Sept 17th we'll be blessed to have some beautiful artists cross our stage again. Shows are Friday and Saturday evenings. Tickets can be purchased online in advance through the Eventbrite link on the Facebook event page. If online ticket purchases don't sell the show out there will be tickets available at the door.
It's at your discretion to wear a mask or not inside. Dancing is a thing again! It can feel cosy in here with a full house and we understand apprehensions as things open back up. We're all navigating this differently as we move back to some sort of semblance of normalcy, we'll strive to accommodate all in the enjoyment of musical performance.
Thanks for you understanding and support, we can't wait to see y'all!!
