Magic Weapon

NO SHAME: Magic Weapon


As we pass the half-way point of the summer, the heat and humidity increases with much disdain for us humans. So what do we do? We resort to the patios, to the cold drinks and to a lesser extent, more sweating. Why? Because we like to dance! Even if you think you can't dance, underneath it all, you can dance. NO SHAME continues its summer trek on Thursday evening with a young but growing Montreal project called Magic Weapon.

It began off as Jordan Robson-Cramer, drummer of Polaris Prize nominated band Miracle Fortress and drummer of unbelievable kick-ass Wolf Parade side-project Sunset Rubdown (note: new record 'Random Spirit Lover' is ridiculously great). Recently, he acquired friends from other Montreal/Vancouver bands, namely Matt Shane from Think About Life, and others from Shapes and Sizes. Magic Weapon's music is an electronic, psychedelic and ambient ride through similar paths which Think About Life have guided in the past. Their songs will force fast movement, but they will also slow you down and capture the moment.

Other bands joining the bill for NO SHAME will be Pop/Experimental Montreal band Flames. Also, local indie foot-stompers Mariposa will make an appearance.

To recap:

Who: Magic Weapon / Flames / Mariposa
When: Thursday, August 9th @ 9pm
Where: The Tiger Bar (414 College St. - go inside the College Street Diner)
