A night of big sounds at Bar Robo…
Doors at 8pm
Sometimes only a rude awakening can shake you off a misguided path. That’s what Vancouver based alt-rockers Morning Show received from their producer Colin Stewart in the spring of 2016. Morning Show was busy making gentle, refined tunes peppered with subtleties that the casual listener might never notice. Thankfully, the formidable Stewart (The New Pornographers, Yukon Blonde) bluntly informed them these songs were lousy and that the band sounded “bummed”. They realized that indeed they were “bummed”, changed up their line-up, adopted a new mentality (self-dubbed “freedom train”), “un-bummed” themselves and voila! Out came their debut full-length, “Wine”.
Dreamshell is the product of a long-time collaboration between friends Johnny McArthur and Eric Moore. Over the years, the duo’s music has evolved into what is now their searing, lo-fi sound. Their music exists at the intersection of shoegaze and psych rock, with experimentalism always at the forefront.
