ARE YOU READY!?
The North By Northeast festival is coming soon! Taking place from June 11-17 in Toronto, this 7 day event features 650 bands and 40 films! Big names such as The Flaming Lips, Mathew Good and Bad Religion will be taking the stage as well as several local bands including the Couriers. New to the music scene, these guys are just as excited to play the event as we are for it! Described as a “perfectly formed sixties surf quintet in the classic 12 bar” these guys are a combination of a “wipeout! style with kiss-beneath-the-glitter-ball sweetheart type ballads”. As if that wasn’t big enough to swallow, you can check out their music for yourself when they perform at The Sister, Thursday, June 14 @ 9PM. Can’t wait until then? Be sure to visit their myspace and soundcloud accounts.
