featuring nêhiyawak, The Shiverettes and Yes Nice
Saturday, June 2 at 9:00pm
in the Roxy on Gateway Theatre
curated by Jesse Northey
nêhiyawak hails from amiskwaciy (Edmonton) on Treaty 6 territory. Comprised of Kris Harper, Matthew Cardinal, and Marek Tyler – three Indigenous musicians coalescing at the intersection between traditional and contemporary music.
Hailing from Calgary/Treaty 7 territory, The Shiverettes come equipped with gnarly riffs, snotty attitude and brash honesty. The four-piece push their Feminist AgendaTM with a heavy dose of sass, side eye and shade. Gathering comparisons to The Stooges, Seven Year Bitch and MC5, The Shiverettes are here for a good time and, Goddess willing, a long time.
Yes Nice are an indie act from Edmonton whose music is a mixture of lush harmony, folkie guitars, and slight electronic flourishes; a beautifully- composed sonic stew captured on computer but sounding timeless. Scott McKellar — the live bassist/vocalist who serves as the band’s producer/arranger on recordings— calls such sound “creating landscapes.”
