RICKANEERS EP RELEASE

Screen Shot 2019-10-21 at 3.17.32 PM.png

One of the finest and most steadily excellent groups to ever grace the boards of the Junction City Stage, The Rickaneers are back with new heat for your airpods.

Arrive early, and bring two pairs of pants, because one might be blown completely off.

Absorb the artwork for their new single, and tell me this doesn’t seem like one of the coolest rock bands of all time...

Well, don’t tell me. I’m a website. Tell a friend and then go to the show.

These are some of the coolest bands on the circuit today. They all rip with the strength of a thousand sails and will blow you away with the gusts of a million squalls, but don’t take my word for it, I’m just a website inexplicably fixated on nautical imagery.

“After over a year without playing a gig, Knife Camp is back and we're releasing our new EP! Join us on November 14th at Junction City Music Hall to celebrate with fellow shit-hot Toronto bands Beach Fox and Joan Smith & the Jane Does. Music at 9:00, $5 cover. We have missed you all so much. Let's get weird.”

Wasaga & Aciidz

0015692281_100.png

There was once a commercially dominant form of music known as “rock.” In the nineteen eighties its popularity was so massive that it had splintered into various sub genres like: yacht, soft, hard, punk, new wave, and metai (itself broken into black, speed, and hair sub-categorizations).

The venn diagram of all these sounds could be linked up like a magician’s rings, and you still wouldn’t scratch the true beauty of Wasaga or Aciidz.

From a world of animal printed, shredded lycra, snorted insects, bus crashes and flying guitars - these bands have distilled the spirit of the times that spawned many, to remain the proud rocking few.

We salute them.

The will blow the filth out of your soul and satiate your appetite for all loud, nasty, and dangerous.

Come and feel it. Like the mighty pine on the ponderosa - You can’t help but grow.

Jim Junior

It is wonderful when good things happen to good people. Longtime friend of the JCMH and gifted soulman Mr. Jim Junior is home from recording in the UK. To say he will have treats to share and new levels to flex would be to set a bar, and that would be unfair because incomparable performer is capable of height we can’t currently imagine.

This dude comes by his current ascent to the big time through the honest alchemy of talent, patience, and hard work. All it will take from you to see a star of tomorrow on the rise is to get through the hallway and onto the dancefloor.

A rare Toronto show. Whatever comes next for this powerful artist will be huge. You’ll have to come and ask him who he’s been talking to…

BEACH FOX

Screen Shot 2019-08-22 at 5.07.12 AM.png

Beach Fox are a band that have drawn comparisons to The Velvet Underground, Kinks, Modern Lovers, pre megafame/aliens Blink 182, and that’s just round the uber critical Junction City water cooler.

There are many reasons why this kinetic and heart stirring sound has led to a proliferation of high profile gigs in this band’s few years on the scene.

With the addition of ace bassist Keilah Crocker this band has taken a rock solid power pop and fun post-punk formula and braced for the bright lights of the arenas and theatres they are destined to destroy.

Catch them in an intimate setting while you still can.
