It’s three of Saskatchewan’s hottest bands on one bill!  Library Voices is a seven piece pop collective from Regina whose star has been rising with enormous speed across Canada since they formed in 2008. The band’s sophisticated pop writing and complex harmonies, along with anthemic, sing-along choruses have earned them a devoted following from music fans and industry pundits alike. 

Backed by bass and drums, the three acoustic guitars of Volcanoless in Canada weave intricate and catchy melodies into a completely original sound. Their last album was a collection of memorable hooks spanning pop, rock, folk, punk and dance.

Taking a break from his hardcore roots, talented Regina troubadour Matthew Goud steps out on his own in Northcote to reveal a gorgeous collection of songs on his debut EP Borrowed Chords, Tired Eyes. Northcote’s well-crafted lyrics, beautifully gritty voice, and ambient guitar will draw you in and invite you to stay awhile.

[Library Voices]...the undiscovered band you NEED to hear now…leaning on well-edited art school essentials, from restrained flourishes of unadorned guitars to playful keyboards and cutesy boy-girl vocals.
