Tacoma Hellfarm Tragedy

The Tacoma Hellfarm Tragedy are based in Ontario’s royal city; Guelph. Their roots spread far and deep in to Canadian soil. These lovers and bandits have wandered in from the underbrush; dirty, slightly bruised but with clarity of mind and spirit to play songs. Songs of lost love, songs of rage and regret, songs of jubilant excitation. These songs tell stories. Stories about people. People who may or may not have ever really lived. These songs strike to the core of what folk music is. That is, if you took the live end of folk music and plugged it in to that transformer that hums outside your window in the middle of the night. But under the electric hum is an earthy tone. And if you pay close attention you can smell sweet gasoline and the sound of worn wheels on a dusty road. Chances are that’s the sound of the boys on their way to the next honky tonk. The band are pleased to release Canter Canter, the long-awaited follow-up to their acclaimed 2007 release, Orchard Songs.

Huron

Huron is a rock and roll band from Hamilton, Ontario. The four of us got together in early 2008 and released our self-titled full-length record, produced by Ian Blurton. Sometimes the music is big southern-fried Sabbath riffin’. Sometimes we just sing songs that come from a Neil Young, Beatles and the Band-type of place. Sometimes the Floyd and the Dead get the better of us and it gets psychedelic. Often it’s some combination of those.
Cam Malcolm (guitar, vocals) cut his teeth fronting Peterborough’s Sweet Homewreckers – their record From the Letdown to the Comearound had critics singing praises in harmony and it spawned a video for the infectious cut “Wild America”. Aaron Goldstein (guitar, vocals) is best known as one of Hamilton’s most visible sidemen, providing accompaniment on pedal steel and guitar to some of Southern Ontario’s finest singer/songwriters. Along with Adam Melnick (bass, vocals), he is a member of Dan Griffin’s Regrets and has played steel on dozens of Southern Ontario records over the past few years. Adam, in the meantime, has also proven himself a worthy sideman on bass and keyboards, having played recently with Kilhuminzu and Terra Lightfoot. And if that wasn’t enough, Pete Hall (drums, vocals) spent the better part of the last ten years co-fronting the epic A Northern Chorus, releasing four critically acclaimed records on Sonic Unyon and touring Canada, the US and the UK.

KYEO/CSA Present: Evan Gordon & The Sad Clowns + Ian Blurton+Huron=Happy Endings – 02/18

KYEO & The CSA Present:

Thursday February 18, 2010

EVAN GORDON & THE SAD CLOWNS
+
IAN BLURTON+HURON=HAPPY ENDINGS


Evan Gordon & The Sad Clowns

Over the past 15 years, Evan Gordon has made some of the most groundbreaking rock ‘n’ roll to ever come out of Canada. Gordon has left an indelible mark on early songs and records by Jim Guthrie, Royal City, Constantines, and even his father, folk singer James Gordon, all of whom have gone on to find audiences well beyond Wellington County. Now a member of such notable bands as the Magic, Islands, and the Skeletones Four, Evan’s been so busy that he’s neglected his own band, the Sad Clowns. All that changes with the dirty, sexy rock ‘n’ roll quintet’s first show in forever. If you like your classic rock from the future, don’t miss the return of Evan Gordon and the Sad Clowns.


Ian Blurton+Huron=Happy Endings

Huron is a rock ‘n’ roll band from Hamilton, Ontario. Formed in early 2008, by the end of that year they began tracking their debut record with producer Sir Ian Blurton (Weakerthans, Cursed, Amy Millan). The result will see the light of day this spring, on Latent Recordings/Fontana North. Huron describe it as “a big old southern-fried Sabbath riffin’ affair, with heavy nods to electric Neil Young, the Beatles and The Band. Sometimes the Floyd and the Dead get the better of us and it gets psychedelic. Often it’s some combination of those.” Most recently Huron have teamed up with Blurton to form a new band called Happy Endings. Best known for leading Change of Heart and C’mon, Blurton explores his love of heavy, psychedelic, stoner rock in Happy Endings. For the project’s new record, Blurton played almost every instrument on record himself, with the exception of a couple of appearances by Damon Richardson on drums. Scott from Raising the Fawn has a big vocal part on the record; Michael Thompson has an incredible trumpet part that lasts about 15 seconds but is unbelievably memorable; and Kevin Drew plays guitar. For this show, Huron will play their own set and then back Blurton up as Happy Endings.
