Tough Age + Century Palm + Germaphobes + Long Branch
- 12 Clinton St.
Tough Age (Vancouver / Mint Records) – 12:30AM
Take one Ramones/Archies sugar-pop-rush, mix with equal parts garage-punk and psych-rock, season with “seasoned vet” sauce, take out on North American tour. This Vancouver quartet upholds the Mint Record torch for upbeat, bittersweet DIY pop. (Members of: Korean Gut, Apollo Ghosts, Sightlines, Collapsing Opposites.)
Century Palm (Toronto / Deranged Records) – 11:30PM
Fresh off their appearance on the Pentagon Black “paper compilation” of Canadian DIY bands, the Toronto five-piece will psychically transmit their retro-futurist brand of hypnotic, krautrock-inspired glam-pop. New music forthcoming via Deranged! (Members of: Ketamines, Dirty Beaches.)
Germaphobes (Toronto) – 10:30PM
Fresh off the Class of 2016 honour roll, Neil Rankin, Paul Erlichman and friends are a bombastic, new-wave prog-pop battering ram of fun. (Members of: Gay, Foxfire, Elrichman, Bert Sugar, Body Butter.)
Long Branch music group (Toronto) – 9:30PM
Exploring the dark edges of city living and the hinterland, resting their fingertips on alt-country, folk, psych, and punk rock. Dead leaves, bare trees, redemption, resurrection, and difficult choices. (Members of: Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet, Venus Cures All, Black Heel Marks, Crash Kills Five, Chicken Milk.)
