JUNCTION HOLIDAY EXTRAVAGANZA (The Beat Club, The 86'ers, DJ JPQ)

JUNCTION HOLIDAY EXTRAVAGANZANOLOGO.png

It’s the Wednesday night before Christmas, the holiday spirit has kicked in, your flying higher than a sleigh strapped to the back of a billion reindeer. Work is paused or on autopilot, you’ve yet to fly away or welcome incoming guests…

THIS IS YOUR TIME

Gather all ye misfits and ravers, bon-vivants on permanent vacation, and Elves preparing for the crunch, all ye who enjoy an evening of big beat to usher in the calm of a silent night. Junction City Music Hall is proud to welcome some of the finest bands in all the land, supported by several sets from their resident dreidl spinning, Kwanza observing, tree trimming, jolly man for all seasons, overstuffed stocking of musical joy DJ Jason Parker Quinton as Dj Yung Santa playing hits of present day, holiday favourites, and the best dance music of Christmases past.

Opening the night are the youthful rock historians The 86’ers. These young dudes carry the news, the big axes, and a powerful sound that’s as reliable as death and taxes.

The headliner for the night is The Beat Club these guys pluck from the mods, the punks, new wave, garage, and classic rock gardens to assemble a Power Pop cornucopia that makes you dance, think, have an epiphany, and then forget it as you are lost in an orgiastic frenzy of uptempo beats and timeless grooves.

Alt Rock Tribute by Sonic Curators

Alt Rock. The movement that defined a moment. A moment that birthed a generation. Before smart phones and soundcloud rappers, flannel clad minstrels took the DIY hardcore and punk ethos of the politcally charged 80's and took the 90's to all eternity.

SONIC CURATORS brings together five musicians who have quickly evolved into great friends. With very similar musical tastes and interest, we hope to share our music with like-minded friends who can appreciate us balancing work, family and music.

Does anyone remember the 90's?

They were great! Maybe they were better?

DJ Nova (Too Young To Go Steady) rolls through his favourite venue with a cover band behemoth sure to bring the excitement of lost virginity.

Nostalgia aside. The fact that you were born in 1992 aside. This is consistently one of our most boisterous dancefloors and always turn into a cathartic sing-a-long where strangers embrace and Tinder dates turn into moving in together. Whether or not their names are Jonas, somebody wakes up in their makeup feeling like a bullet with butterfly wings that wants to fly.

COME DANCE! You never know if it will be your last chance.

Hot Lips are coming in on fire with a new video release!

Their music bangs on records, but the Honeybeard live visual experience is out of this world.

We are huge fans of Molly Davis and all of her projects at Junction City, but don’t just take our word for it, Molly’s biography speaks for itself:

From mollydavismusic.com

I am a multi-instrumentalist for hire located in Toronto Ontario, Canada.

Beginning with the violin at age 4, I have since learned to play drums, rhythm guitar, keyboards, bass, and most recently, have begun to sing as well. It started when my parents found me plunking out the theme from Jurassic Park on their old upright piano.

In my adult life, I have enjoyed success as an all around performer; as a comedian, my career took me from Toronto to Chicago, New York City, and Vancouver to perform with some of North America's best before I had even turned 22. As a composer, I have integrated my extensive theatre training into my film compositions, utilizing my entrenched understanding of character and story to weave scores that perfectly reflect their visual counterparts.

These days you can catch me performing with a few different acts; as the musical director and co-host of web-series 10 Minute Talk Show, as a vocalist for indie band Field Study, and as the drummer for the bands Shrinehouse and Squid Mountain, as well as the odd one off show around Toronto.

Idle Tigers X Secret Wars X Mr Pharmacist

Idle Tigers X Secret Wars X Mr Pharmacist

MR PHARMACIST 

Members:  
Toby Schertzer:  Vocals, Samples;
Robert Howard:  Guitars, Keyboards, Vocals; 
Joe Steeves:  Guitars, Keyboards;
Mike Letourneau:  Bass, Vocals;
Glenn Milchem:  Drums

MR PHARMACIST is the result of a collective unnatural interest in the peculiar brand of expressive cynicism practiced by the late UK maverick - and statesman - Mark E. Smith and his brilliant THE FALL.  MR PHARMACIST, formed in 2009, is fan indulgence by way of tribute to THE FALL - a band with no more apparent concerns about what might be considered commercial pop music than any of the members of MR PHARMACIST. Tackling THE FALL repertoire from their late 1970’s beginnings - to the band's last works - through the more commercial periods - to the more challenging experimental work - MR PHARMACIST approach the material with reverence - and the goal of producing faithful interpretations. To those unaware that they are witnessing a tribute, MR PHARMACIST, might be mistaken for a band simply and bizarrely unaware of conventional pop music or even current trends. To devotees, MR PHARMACIST provides that musical gateway to THE FALL's nonconformity.

IDLE TIGERS

Members:  Andrew Currie, Ross Hawkins, Dave Keay, Steve Szigeti
Idle Tigers is spearheaded by Ross Hawkins, who released CDs in 2008 (The Spirit Salon) and 2009 (Persisting Like a Racehorse, available on Spotify). Originally from the Yorkshire regions of England, Hawkins writes songs with a strong emphasis on storytelling. Song arrangements are developed by the band and influenced by the work of Leonard Cohen, Nick Cave, Tom Waits, avant-garde artists such as Laurie Anderson, literary absurdist pop-punk such as Magazine, The Fall and The Birthday Party, and cult “singing authors” such as Jake Thackray, Dory Previn and Momus.

Idle Tigers approaches the question of what should and should not be contained in a song (musically and lyrically) with constructive irreverence.

SECRET WARS

Members: Armando Lulu, Minesh Mandoda, Chad Storie, Derek Westerholm.
Utilizing: Bass, Guitars, Loops, Drums, Vocals and suchlike.
Lineage/Origins: Parts Unknown, The Creeping Nobodies, Mean Red Spiders, Ghostlight, 122 Griege, Jim Storie Juniors, Beethoven Frieze, All Under Heaven, Skull Bong, etc.
Influences: Strange and tumultuous times, mental health, post-punk, art-rock, proto-punk, krautrock, dub, no wave, new wave, indie, rock & roll, fractured pop -- probably thousands more.
