About the bands:
The Foreign Resort are Denmark’s finest musical export of explosive post-punk and dark new wave. The band combines the shadowy mysticism of The Cure’s Pornography era with a driving production aesthetic akin to LCD Soundsystem. Since 2010, the band has played more than 400 shows across North America and Europe with performances at several festivals incl. SXSW, Iceland Airwaves, Wave Gotik Treffen in Germany and Canadian Music Week 2017.
Quiet Lakes from Hamilton, Ontario is a cascade of crushing riffs, despairing wails and beautiful melodies. Composer Graham Bucci has created progressive and densely layered post-metal/drone doom strongly rooted in shoegaze, post-rock, and slowcore, drawing influence from artists like Labradford, Mono and Codeine.
Wild Night emanate from the smoke stacks of Hamilton, Ontario. They are a punk’n’ roll band who play rock and roll like their lives depend on it, writing heart-raced anthems with soaring vocals, chest-shattering drums and skull-shaking guitars with their hearts on their sleeves and their sweat on the stage.
