Thursday, October 12
with Windigo and Lusitania Lights
Fusing alternative rock with a modern pop aesthetic, Ivory Hours is a group defined by their resistance to convention - their melodies are massive but ethereal; their anthems soaring, yet intimate. Now based in Toronto, Canada, Ivory Hours was formed in 2012 by songwriter Luke Roes and later joined by Chris Levesque and Thomas Perquin. Transforming their art-rock beginnings into a farther reaching ethos, their 2017 release “Dreamworld” represents a new era, juxtaposing synthesizers and monolithic hooks with walls of guitar and fuzzed out bass.
Dreamy melodies and psychedelic summer vibes take you somewhere warm and far away.
Windigo is the relentlessly lovable brain-child of Anthony Kameka (guitar & vocals), Del Coburn (bass), Tory Rosso (guitar) and Mitch Cooper (drums). Kameka’s mellow yet powerful vocals and Cooper’s exquisite rhythms balance expertly with Coburn and Rosso’s infectious artistry.
Combining their intoxicating creative intuition, Windigo has found its way into the hearts of a loyal and sizeable following in their hometown of Calgary, Alberta and nationwide. The band currently has six releases and over 200 live performances - and with an all new full length album slated for a 2017 release, the possibilities are endless.
Praised for their original sound in the Canadian Alternative
Rock scene, Lusitania Lights is an Edmonton, Alberta born band
of four like-minded multi-instrumentalists. Pulling from influences such as Mutemath, John Mayer, and Anderson .Paak, Lusitania Lights has a unique songwriting ability that shines in their first two EP's "Still Stranded" and the recently released "Ultraviolet". Their dance-inducing melodies, guitar riffs, and bass lines offer up a catchy formula that stays with you long after your first listen. Their live shows are well-received by a wide audience for their intense drum solos, stage charisma, and performance energy.
