SAMEDI 20 AOÛT 2011
Bad Uncle  +Crooked Brothers  +Declan O’Donovan  +Dj Izi Laterreur

Having over-gigged the lovely town of Montreal for what seems like an eternity (but is actually three years) Bad Uncle has quickly been drawing a crowd of eclectic fans from all cultural, economic and genetic vectors of the city. The sound can be described as Grasscore, Polkabilly, Gothic Surf, Operatic Punk and more. The sound can rise up to the soaring pinnacles of Baroque Thrash music and then sink down to the grittiest country/western nuclear fallout. The aim of this band is to deliver as many different flavours as possible, all wrapped in the same slice of meat. The aim of this band is to steal your shoes on its way out of the house party.

Country / Folk / Roots Music

Leur premier album « Deathbed Pillowtalk » est un mélange de musique country classique, blues et de funk. Le son unique de leur banjo et leur musique country vous transporteront sur un sentier hors de l'ordinaire. La fascination des Crooked Brothers avec le passé va au-delà de leur choix d’instruments de musique. Parfois, les histoires, les paysages et les longs hivers de leur province natale, le Manitoba, refont surface dans leur musique. Les prairies sont à la base du caractère de leur son. Les Crooked Brothers vous feront mourir d’amour.

Blues / Rock

Award-winning songwriter and singer/pianist Declan O’Donovan is launching his new solo career in 2012 with a new alt. roots/blues album and a cross-Canada tour. Dark and soulful, with occasional twists of wicked humour, Declan’s music crosses boundaries as easily he does, a born-and-raised Yukon boy who now lives part-time in Montreal and boasts dual citizenship with Ireland and Canada. Over the last two decades, Declan has performed with numerous bands, including the beloved Yukon-based alternative blues/rock group Scotch. He recently won the Blues Category in the Westcoast Songwriters International Songwriting Competition for Cheap Souvenir, featured on his new album. These days, he can be found working onstage and in the studio, collaborating with musicians in both Montreal and Whitehorse, or stealing the show with just a piano and his whiskey-edged voice.
