Fresh off headling a Canada Day Festival in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, B.C.’s Mother Mother will make a pit stop in town today, and they want you to join them. The band will pop into 102.1 the Edge‘s Sugar Beach Studios (25 Dockside Dr.) tonight at 7:30 p.m. to play the new single off their forthcoming fourth album, Sticks, to be released this fall. The group will be back in Toronto Aug. 19 for a show at Echo Beach along with Said The Whale, in support of Our Lady Peace.
Mother Mother front man Ryan Guldemond also co-produced the debut record from fellow west coasters Rococode, Guns, Sex & Glory. The eclectic art-popsters have released a striking new video for the track “Ghost 1/Ghost 2,” co-directed by bassist Shaun Huberts, who has also recently published the book How to Pack Like a Rock Star, featuring travel-prep tips from the likes of City & Colour’s Dallas Green, Spoon’s Britt Daniel, The Gaselight Anthem’s Brian Fallon, and many more. Rococode and Said the Whale are also among the acts that will be part of Hamilton’s annual James Street Super Crawl (Sept. 14-15), which shuts down the street to celebrate live music. Also performing at the free event are K’naan, Great Lake Swimmers, and a rare appearance by the legendary Change Of Heart.
