Shadowhand, Heavy Medicine Band & Merganzer
March 10, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm$10
SHOWBOX CONCERT SERIES ft.
Shadowhand (Ottawa daze)
Shadowhand arranges folk songs in a ghostly style of soul music. Described as the sound of leaving a party alone to walk to the store for cigarettes, the band creates a richly dark, down-tempo, and ambient sound.
The band will be releasing their debut full-length at the concert series on March 10th.
The Heavy Medicine Band (Ottawa folk noir)
“Of all the bands making music in Ottawa—or even Canada, for that matter—the Heavy Medicine Band is pursuing a style and sound that is wholly their own. It’s phsyc-rock dipped in folk noir, driven by the profound lyricism and vocal prowess of Keturah Johnson. On their debut full-length ERSATZ ERA, the band weaves together texturized soundscapes that could be the soundtrack of a dream…” – Matias Munoz, Ottawa Showbox
Merganzer (Ottawa experimental pop)
Merganzer is the new experimental pop project of Violinist Mika Posen (Timber Timbre, Agnes Obel, Forest City Lovers). She sings songs built from sampled strings, homemade beats, soaring sine waves, and plaintive vocal melodies.
The Ottawa-based online thrift store Tall Pines Thrift will be setting up a rack full of amazing finds at our Concert Series March 10th. Their aim is to operate sustainably with a focus on Canadian-made items. Be sure to follow them on Instagram and keep an eye on all their wicked finds!
