BeatRoute Parties at Sled Island: Cloud Nothings, Hangover Brunch and the best of Vancouver

CALGARY – This may come as a shock, but we here at BeatRoute really, really like to party. So much so that we’ve teamed up with Sled Island for three wild (and wildly different) ragers during the festival. We hope to see you there!

Cloud Nothings with guests on both floors at the Royal Canadian Legion #1 on Wednesday, June 21
Well, this one wasn’t exactly a hard decision. Cloud Nothings (read our feature in this issue) are one of the most exciting contemporary indie rock bands of the day. Contributor Jackie Klapak said their recent album Life Without Sound “creates the perfect soundtrack to the modern and mundane life,” and that it’s a “polished and perfected piece.” Joining the band on the main floor at the Legion are the shred-tastic Wares, gritty Torontonians FRIGS and the goofy but lovable Surf Dads. Upstairs, local dream pop pack Crystal Eyes, the raucous Sightlines and the hazy Late Spring.

BeatRoute BC Cotton Candy Party at Local 510 on Thursday, June 22

One of our favourite annual traditions, the Cotton Candy pairs the sweetness of sugar with the snarl of punk. Titanic acts BRASS and Needles//Pins (also our B.C. issue cover stars for June) play some of the heaviest punk tunes in the west. Joining them are Glad Rags, another gnarly act with a callback to the ‘90s Pacific Northwest sound. Finally, for something completely different, Jen Severtson’s dream-pop outfit Peach Pyramid will be starting the night off. This party is for anyone who likes to mix the salty with the sweet.

BeatRoute Annual Hangover Brunch at Local 510 on Saturday, June 24

By Saturday, you’re likely to feel a little worn down from the rest of the festivities. Well, not when we’re done with you! Our annual Hangover Brunch returns to Local 510 with two stages of music. On the patio stage, Hamilton’s legendary space-rock act SIANspheric headline outside, and you can read about ‘em more in this issue! Eclectic openers Silver Dapple, Ora Cogan and Ada Lea will also be providing soothing sounds. Inside, things start out calm and gradually fire up: Summering headlines with Best Fern, hazy, Astral Swans and Shhh opening up the proceedings.
