Signal Hill

August 17 & 18 Ballroom


Signal Hill is a four man acoustic rock band from St. John’s, Newfoundland, currently based out of Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.

Winning the best band and best cover band several times in the The Coast (Halifax) reader's poll, as recently as 2013, Signal Hill has been a mainstay in the east coast music scene for years. The formula is simple: great songs you know and love, solid, rich four part vocal and acoustic guitar arrangements, and miles and miles of energy!

Adyn Townes

with Calm Baretta

May 12 Gastropub 


At the place where endings become beginnings, you'll find Adyn Townes.  He turned a fall into the ocean and months of recovery into his jumping off point.

His music is challenging. Alternative indie-folk with raw and honest lyrics. Like finding your feet just before you fall, his songwriting is the gravity that pulls you back to earth.

Inspired by the equal-parts hard and smooth voice of David Gray and the clear electric guitar tones of James Bay, Townes is always pushing the boundaries and seeing how close he can get to the edge.

Les Moon Tunes

May 19 Gastropub

 

Considering themselves a jam band, their sources of musical inspiration are improvised evenings, relaxation and their disco light that generates a magical atmosphere. Their song themes range from love and joy to melancholy and rage, all based on their life experiences. In addition to sharing beautiful music, their goal is to transform melodies into emotions.

Dub Kartel

with Art the Band

May 25 Gastropub


Raising up the standard of a dance floor”; the mission of this live, seven-piece Dancehall Reggae band, Dub Kartel.

Over the past six years, the Halifax (NS) based group has honed their sound in the Canadian festival, club, and bar circuits, developing their unique blend of high energy, all-original Reggae, Dancehall, and Hip-Hop. Through positivity and an all-inclusive attitude, Dub Kartel creates an interactive live experience filled with improvisation, that entertains both audience and band members alike. Coming off their 2016 Self-Titled Debut album, Dub Kartel spent early 2017 writing and recording in Kingston Jamaica at Anchor Studios. Immersing themselves in the Kingston reggae scene, DK was able to collaborate with BLVK H3RO, Koro Fyah, Jah'Mila, Kenyatta Hill, Debo Ras, and Delroy "Phatta" Pottinger. Look out for this project to be released as singles throughout 2018.

Postdata

June 2 Gastropub


On Let’s Be Wilderness, his new record with revolving-door project Postdata Paul Murphy explores both sides of that coin. The frontman of beloved Nova Scotia alternative outfit Wintersleep more than a decade. Murphy first released music with Postdata in 2010, a self-titled debut that saw him working with his brother Michael to record a set of songs that dealt with family, legacy, and connection. Now, Postdata returns with Let’s Be Wilderness, a record characterized by those two old bickering friends: love and death.

The 10-track record came together much the same as Murphy’s other projects: through a community of friends and family. A vacation in Europe found Murphy ringing up friends and former tourmates Grant Hutchison and Andy Monaghan (both of Scottish indie rock triumph Frightened Rabbit). It was these meetings with old pals that birthed Let’s Be Wilderness. The cast was rounded out by Murphy’s Wintersleep bandmates Loel Campbell and Tim D’Eon, with additional work from Simone Pace (Blonde Redhead) and production from acclaimed Scottish producer Tony Doogan.

The change might discomfort some, but the rotating cast is part and parcel to Postdata; like all things, it’s never static, nor set in stone. “It can be anything,” Murphy says of Postdata. “It’s not actually really a band. It’s a project that you can work on with different people that you meet as you’re touring. You can build a record that way.”

Seaway // Like Pacific // Bearings

July 31st The Caveau 


Evolution often happens at just the right time. Six years deep into their career, Seawayprogress the patented pop punk prowess that put them on the map with sharper songcraft and a nod to the nineties on their third full-length record, Vacation [Pure Noise Entertainment]. The Ontario, Canada quintet—Patrick Carleton [rhythm guitar, co-vocals], Andrew Eichinger [lead guitar, backing vocals], Ryan Locke [lead vocals], Adam Shoji [bass], and Ken Taylor [drums]—confidently step up their game across the board, while maintaining the spark that ignited a fervent fan base.

Elliot Brood 

September 14 The Caveau 


hree-piece Folk Rock Alt Country band based in Hamilton, Canada. Their brand of fuzzed-up roots music has always made for a captivating, and frenetic live performance. That energy has always translated onto the band's five previous critically acclaimed records. In 2013 the band won a Juno Award for their World War One inspired album "Days Into Years". Over the course of their career they have been nominated for a total of five Juno awards. In 2009 they were shortlisted for the prestigious Polaris Music Prize and in 2012 the band found themselves nominated for a Genie Award for their original song "West End Sky" that was featured in the film "Grown Up Movie Star". Their style has been called everything from 'blackgrass' to 'death country,' but those descriptions don't capture the transcendent heights of their unique approach to roots music.

Dear Rouge

October 6 Gastropub



If there’s one constant in life, it’s this: nothing stays the same. Change is inevitable, for better or for worse—it’s the sinister shadow lurking behind the sunniest day, the silver lining that offsets every cloud. That mutability is something with which the members of Dear Rouge are intimately familiar. Since putting out their debut EP in 2012, Drew and Danielle McTaggart have been on a somewhat breathtaking upward trajectory. That independent release led to another one, and the accolades began to flood in: a B.C.–based radio award, songwriting prizes, a sweet record deal, charting singles, and a 2016 Juno for Breakthrough Group of the Year followed in short order.
