Great Beer, Great Music, Great start to the Weekend!
As lovers and supporters of all things music and art, not to mention independent musicians and artists, we’re huge fans of Steam Whistle for their long running UNSIGNED concert series, which showcases independent Canadian musicians.
This Friday night (May 24), Steam Whistle is hosting Unsigned #25 in celebration of Canadian Indie Music at their Beer Hall – the Round House (255 Bremner Blvd) – with local acts Beliefs, The C’Mons and Hussy. Doors open at 8pm and cover is only $5 with proceeds going back to the Artists Health Alliance to help strengthen and empower our local creative community.
An assembly of cultured and stimulating sounds, Beliefs revive the effect-driven alt-rock shoegazing genre by bashing pedals with dreamy, ghostly vocals for a mix of distortion birthed from the bond over The Jesus and Marychain, Slowdive and My Bloody Valentine. http://beliefs.bandcamp.com/
Anyone who has ever seen them perform live can tell you: a C’mons show is for the folks who like to stomp their feet, clap their hands and dance their asses off. With an interesting mesh of personalities and style, these guys aim to please. http://thecmons.ca
Local favourites, Hussy’s sound can only be described as loud and blood thinning. Crashing onto the Toronto music scene, Hussy is already making a name for themselves with their notoriously rowdy shows and their gritty, sleazy post-punk sound. http://hussywhore.bandcamp.com
Steam Whistle Brewery has been a long time active supporter of independent Canadian musicians and the UNSIGNED concert series has raised over $70,000 for local artists. The series has showcased some pretty awesome Canadian bands over the past six years including The Rural Alberta Advantage, Austra, Hooded Fang, The Darcys, Young Empires, Rich Aucoin, Odonis Odonis, Beta Frontiers, Indian Handcraft, The Balconies, Woodhands, Dinosaur Bones, Lioness, Parallels, Wilderness of Manitoba, and Kidstreet.
With that kind of track record, you know that this is going to be one hell of a rockin’ show that you don’t want to miss.
