EXCLAIM! PRESENTS CLASS OF 2017 CONCERT SERIES

January 13, 2017

 

It's 2017, and that means it's Exclaim!'s 25th birthday! To celebrate, Exclaim! is throwing a concert series running five nights this month on the 6th, 14th, 20th, 21st, and 28th! Did you miss the first date? That's okay, because the month is still young and there are many more bands who are eager to make you dance :)The 14th is for fans of indie guitar rock, and the Horseshoe Tavern was nice enough to let the festivities happen there! You can catch the New Swears and the Kents as the headliners, with newer (but no less amazing) bands Possum, Crazy Bones, and Detours continuing the part well into the night. Take the next six days off (or go to work, you decide), but on the 20th you can hit up the Silver Dollar for even more music! Exclaim! is joining teams with Ride the Tempo (another proud supporter of independent Canadian music) to present to you a variety of vibey artists, including Kirty, STACEY, Maccie, and Helena Deland. On the 21st you can continue your rocking weekend, again at the Silver Dollar, for some moody punk music you know you love! This time, Exclaim! is teaming up with indie music hub Wavelength. Together, they have jams brought to you by Chastity, Cellphone, Sahara, Yi, and the Sulks!Last but not least, the 28th marks the final night of festivities, which means you CAN'T miss it! Back at the Horseshoe Tavern, this last night involves a lot of artists from a lot of genres, each as wonderful as the last.

It's not that often that I find acoustic songs completely fulfilling. Prom Queen Crown by Rallie and Coal however has all the needed elements. Captivating chord progressions, beautiful vocals and subtle progression to provide expanding elements.

Rallie & Coal are an art...

Not only is the song concept very ironically relatable to this rising generation, but this production is incredibly refreshing. From the chord progression to the balance of nostalgic and modern synths, quirky percussion and of course Anna's angelic vocal tone. And she'...

It is always refreshing to see an artist using art and their platform to an end greater than themselves. With “Our Planet,” Chris Webby and Bria Lee seek to do just that. Their take on climate change activism is more than mere environmental...

Brooklyn Semhar waxes melancholic and laments a family divided on “Daddy.” This track is a smouldering, slow-burning groove that pulls itself along with all the moodiness of its subject matter. It is arranged beautifully, and reflects a refreshing jazz influence in its...

Canadian singer-songwriter Kiesza is back! After the enormous popularity of her 2014 house-pop single ‘Hideaway’, she went on collaborate with a stunning array of famous names. Names like Skrillex, Diplo, and Duran Duran, to name a few. Tragically, her career was put o...

Payson Lewis has released an anthemic new single called “Nothing To You”, and it’s really good! Payson has had a diverse career, singing with national orchestras, starring in theatrical performances, acting on TV shows, and now it seems his talent has been channelled i...
