For a few months the question of where Against Me! would play in Winnipeg, if at all, hung over us in a could of uncertainty but tonight Against Me! kicks off their fall tour at the newly reopened Garrick Centre. We’re the first stop! How cool is that?! Here’s what you need to know for tonight:
Set times: Doors: 7:00, The Dirty Nil: 8:00, Bleached: 8:45, Against Me!: 9:50.
A very limited number of tickets are still available online and fewer still will be available at the door.
So who are these first two bands? Allow me to introduce you:
Hail from Hamilton, Ontario (or Dundas, depending who you ask). Won Breakthrough Group of the Year at the 2017 Juno Awards. They’re on Dine Alone Records. Sound like: Alexisonfire with a healthy does of Arkells. They’re not a punk band though. So don’t call them that.
“L.A. based” Sister-led three piece touring their “catchy-as-hell sophomore album Welcome the Worms” which they released in April. Sounds like: a more polished 70’s stoner rock version of The Donnas.
