Halifax Pop Explosion 2019: DIET CIG with WALRUS, LUNA LI & DIAMONDTOWN at The Marquee Ballroom (Halifax) - Sat Oct 26 2019 at 9:00 pm
Diet Cig are here to have fun. They’re here to tear you away from the soul-sucking sanctity of your dumpster-fire life and replace it with pop-blessed punk jams about navigating the impending doom of adulthood when all you want is to have ice cream on your birthday.
Walrus are here to play for the sake of the song. The Halifax based band’s debut LP, Family Hangover, is a fuzzed-out electric blanket of soul with unrepentant strands of authentic heaviosity. Extensive studio experimentation can be heard throughout the sonically unique record, from varispeed warble to Spacemen-3 style saucer-drone attacks. Live, their low-key manner belies a depth and dedication to craft. This band could be thrown on a bill between Love and Sabbath and not embarrass the present.
Luna Li has been called the garage rock princess of Toronto (Mick Magazine). With years of classical piano and violin training, she brings a unique musical sensibility to rock; playing both distorted guitar and violin resulting in “dreamy romp through some beautiful melodies and heartbreaking lyrics” (Deli Magazine).
Dartmouth four piece, Diamondtown blends the sweet harmonies and jangly tones of the 60s with moody gothic leanings of the 80s to create a hypnotic form of dream-folk that will take you higher.
