On Saturday, September 1st the highly-acclaimed groups will be taking over the main stage at Deer Lake Park in Burnaby, with special guests.
Portugal. The Man’s latest album, Woodstock, was released in June 2017, their first since 2013. Lead singer John Gourley made a trip home to Wasilla, Alaska where some tough love from his father and the discovery of his dad’s original ticket stub from Woodstock 1969 led to the creation of the album in new-found territory with songs like ‘Feel It Still’.
Meanwhile, the latest album released by Canadian indie collective Broken Social Scene was Hug of Thunder in July 2017. This album features appearances from 15 members of the Broken family including Leslie Feist and Emily Haines.
It’s packed with tracks full of glorious open chords, multi-voice harmonies, spacious psychedelia-tinted breakdowns, and more like ‘Protest Song’. It is a panoramic, expansive album that manages to be both epic and intimate. Referring to the album’s title Kevin said: “I want to hold people. I want to fucking hold them. Playing live it’s ‘we’re here with you this is us together.”
