Ladyhawk may not be a full-time touring machine anymore, but the hard-rocking Vancouver vets will be celebrating their 10th anniversary as a band this spring by heading out on their "Decade of Passive Aggression" Canadian tour.
Tickets are $19 all in and can be bought here:
There's lots o' songs on CBC:
Ladyhawk: Ladyhawk's core is bracing rock. Neil Young's Tonight's The Night is the hailstorm on the hood of The Replacements Let It Be, while distorted guitars invoke the thread and swerve of Silkworm and Dinosaur Jr. Helped along the way by Amber Webber (vocals) and Josh Wells (percussion, organ, singing) of Black Mountain, it will be hard to find a more hauntingly beautiful set of rock music than this debut. It was recorded and mixed, with the help of Black Mountaineers Wells and Matthew Camirand, in the "Karachi Vice" clubhouse, in the back of a furniture factory, amongst chicken and fish processing plants. With some of the more "inexpensive" ladies of the night scattered about, it captures the bottlenecked frenzy of their much-loved live show. There, each night, these grown-up kids at heart fall over, get right back up, cry on shoulders and fold the day in halves, watching the sun come up over the dashboard.
Shotgun Jimmie: World-traveler, collaborator, underdog and hard-working man, Shotgun Jimmie stakes his claim for the hearts and minds of millions with his critically-acclaimed release Everything, Everything (You’ve Changed Records). In 2012, he appeared on John K. Samson’s release Provincial (Epitaph/ANTI) and toured across North America and Europe as Samson’s lead guitarist and opening act. Jimmie’s one-man-band has been an audience favourite at numerous festivals including Slovakia’s Pohoda, Pop Montreal, Halifax Pop Explosion, Sappyfest, Sled Island, Regina Folk Festival, Dawson City Music Festival, NXNE and Canadian Music Week. In addition to a nearly non-stop touring schedule, he has released four albums since 2007, received a Polaris Prize long-list nomination, and shared split releases with Joel Plaskett, Ladyhawk, and Attack in Black. His back-up band is a revolving cast of Canada’s best; musicians who have also played with Feist, DoMakeSayThink, Constantines, Ladyhawk, City and Colour and Cannon Bros.
Now for the broken record statement:
If you RSVP but don't have tickets yet, please be clear about that so your fellow Musicophiles aren't left holding a ticket with no one to go with! That would suck.
Please answer any questions asked when you RSVP. Seriously.
