JULIE DOIRON & THE WRONG GUYS
Julie Doiron is a national treasure, starting off in Sub Pop’s grungy outfit Eric’s Trip before moving on to become one of Canada’s best songwriters. Julie & The Wrong Guys filters folk, indie rock, punk rock, grunge, and metal through a distinctly Canadian lens, channeling the vast geography, diverse climate and barren emptiness of the country into a cohesive, exciting musical sound. The group, which features Doiron, Eamon McGrath, and Cancer Bats members Mike Peters and Jaye Schwarzer are celebrating the release of a two-track 7-inch. The jaw-dropping fury of Julie & The Wrong Guys, tamed by an equal passion for both the spirit of punk rock and the delicate beauties of songwriting, truly has to be seen and heard to be believed.
Arty, spastic, dynamic and entirely unique, you won’t find another band like WHOOP-Szo. With a cast of members roaming in and out of Guelph, this band of creative counterparts combines sound collage, disjointed parts, complex arrangements, and supreme momentum to weave sonic stories, all at once disorienting and enjoyable. Sip on the psychedelic sound of WHOOP-Szo, we promise you’ll taste a far-reaching rainbow of tones.
