The Source Boxing Day Party at the Palomino

Fri Dec 27

Malls Schmalls. DOORS AT 10 ROCK AT 10:30 The MF'n HIGH KICKS. Why? Because Chuck Norris can't rock and Jet Li doesn't know shit about fuzz bass. They're coming to your town soon, so keep an eye out if you like honest to goodness ROCK & ROLL, or just stay home and watch reruns of Frasier if you don't. http://highkicks.bandcamp.com/album/highkicks-self-titled The Courtneys are: Courtney Loove, Sydney Koke (Shearing Pinx, Puberty), and Jen Twynn Payne (Makeout Videotape, Puberty). Three girls from Vancouver BC's infamous downtown eastside. Their blend of fuzzy pop draws comparisons to Eddy Current Suppression Ring, Joy Division, The Clean, Dinosaur Jr, Pavement, and The Jesus and Mary Chain. Driving basslines, scrappy washed out guitar, and primitive beats are accompanied by layers of blazing solos and passionate energetic vocals: The Courtneys produce genuine and fun slacker rock. http://music.cbc.ca/#/artists/The-Courtneys THOWMP is Canada's finest video game band. On first glance it's a collection of indie rockers with a passion for gaming and the nostalgia inspired by the music of games from the classic era of console gaming. They re-create the classic gaming themes you all know and love at a visceral pace and with unparalleled energy. http://thwomp.bandcamp.com/ $10 at the Door.
