I have seen both Nightbox and Bravestation (Indie Pop/Rock Bands) two times each and I can easily say that they always leave me with a hunger for more! They love what they do and they have fun doing it! Before the London Show was announced I was getting ready to make my usual trek to Toronto to see them perform at the Horseshoe on Sep 28th. So you can imagine how much I was relieved that the London show announced (one day before the Toronto show). I love it when gas money becomes beer money! It’s also a nice to see 2 bands in 1 show who’s music has been played at my Indie Underground Events. But wait, there’s more to this show! The Band, Babe is also playing. They open for the two other heavyweights but shouldn’t go unnoticed as song samples below prove that it will be worth showing up for all 3 bands.
Nightbox are a fun, upbeat indie pop/rock band hailing from Toronto. I was lucky enough to see Nightbox perform live at NXNE (North by North East) at Young and Dundas Square (along with other bands, Absolutely Free and Dirty Beaches) aaaand snag a copy of their EP. If you like the musical style of Indie Pop/Rock Irish Band, Two Door Cinema Club then you will like Nightbox. Nightbox’s song, “Relocate You” is featured on my newest mixtape (track 2 of 6). Watch the video for “Relocate You” below.
The first time I heard Bravestation (Toronto) I actually thought they were from the UK which is mostly due to lead singer, Devin Wilson’s unique voice. A voice that works harmoniously with their Indie Rock, Tribal, New Wave sound. Earlier this year Bravestation released their first full length album called, “Giants and Dreamers” which followed up their first EP. Both albums are filled with memorable songs like, “Signs Of The Civilized” (Video Below), “White Wolves”, “Clocks & Spears” and “Tides Of The Summit”. I’d recommend picking both albums up.
Babe (Toronto) got my attention after listening to their Soundcloud page. They’ve been described as “an infectious blend of relentless jazz-laden rhythm, propulsive bass, and commanding soul. Playful and fresh”. It always gets me excited seeing a band for the first time – not really knowing much about them. However, now that I’ve heard their recorded material, I have high hopes for their live performance. I’ve added two songs that stuck out to me from their Soundcloud page – check them out below!
I will be shooting photos on behalf of Indie Underground for this event! Watch for the event photos posted online here (www.indieunderground.ca) and on the Indie Underground Facebook Fan Page (“Like” it now to see updates in your news feed).
