Who: Royal Canoe w/ Close Talker + Windmills
When: Tuesday, October 7
A six-piece ensemble from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Royal Canoe give you everything, but on their own maniacally hybrid terms. It's one thing to reference a particular style, or even a range of styles. It's another thing entirely to grab huge handfuls of sounds from pretty much anywhere, throw them all together and come up with something both cohesive and totally distinctive—something that also happens to ripple and crack with energy.
Thank you to everyone who came out for MECOG 2014! Watch weekend highlight videos here!
Getting your band back together again is as bittersweet as having an affair with your ex. After all, you’ll probably just have to break up all over again. “But the sex is really fun in the meantime,” points out Corb Lund, who will be back playing bass for the smalls – small “s” on “the smalls” – for what they can’t call the Goodbye Forever Tour because they already did that in 2001.
