This event is all ages
From Vancouver, Canada, ACTORS electrify with a modern take on post-punk. On debut full-length It Will Come to You, anthemic songs evoke the urgency of early-80’s U2 (Boy, October, War) as well as the driving, synth drenched scores that emanated from the era's movie screens. As scene authority Post-Punk.com puts it, the band conjures “cinematic new-wave... that belongs on a Michael Mann soundtrack.”
Frontman Jason Corbett’s rich vocals command with all the passion of a young Bono and the coolness of Peter Murphy. Songs like “L’appel du Vide,” “Slaves,” “Face Meets Glass,” and “Bury Me” are bangers that glisten via Corbett’s production job: slamming beats propel warm layers of synth, guitar, and vocals. Corbett writes, produces, mixes, and masters all ACTORS music at his own Vancouver studio, Jacknife Sound.
Corbett names David Bowie as a fundamental influence - Bowie’s sense of confidence and creativity are in full effect on It Will Come to You. But much more than a “retro” act, this is music that stands all on its own, full of life and unforgettable hooks. Perhaps best described as a “post-post-punk” band, ACTORS belongs in the discussion alongside bands of today like The Soft Moon and Cold Cave who are pushing music forward via a deep knowledge of the past.
ACTORS has toured in the USA, Canada, and Europe, and performed at Terminus Festival 2017, 2018 (Calgary), Out From the Shadows Festival 2018 (Portland), Wave-Gotik-Treffen 2018 (Leipzig), Infest 2018 (Manchester), A Murder of Crows (Brooklyn), and Cold Waves 2018 (NYC, Chicago, Los Angeles).
Sevit is an electronic synth band formed by three members - Cameron B., Jack G., and Brian J. The band’s sound was formed from the influences of synth bands past and brought into the "now" by recreating a decade of post minimalistic, monologic analog sounds with catchy melodies, big beats, and catchy vocal hooks.
Rosegarden Funeral Party
Armed with just a guitar and a switchblade, Leah Lane and her misfits, Rosegarden Funeral Party have cut a swath from the royal cloth of post-punk that is distinctly their own. What would happen if Peter Murphy and Siouxise Sioux birthed an Indigo Child later to be baptized in Alan Watts’ philosophy? RFP!! Swipe right and get involved.
