Canoe. Canada. They go together like chocolate and peanut butter, peanut butter and jelly, hockey night and Molson, Tim Hortons and road trips. Is anyone surprised that one of Canada’s best indie pop bands is named Royal Canoe? Well, when these six fellows from Manitoba perform, they give their audience the royal treatment. They’ve opened for bands like the Bombay Bicycle Club and Alt J, and played festivals like Osheaga. Now they’re headlining as they tour to promote their new album Something Got Lost Between Here and the Orbit. If you’re keen to catch their show at La Vitrola on October 29, we’ve got a pair of tickets for you to win thanks to the gang at Indie Montreal.
We’ve spoken to a few from this lovely bunch before. Namely, Matt Peters, vocalist of the band, and Bucky Driedger, electric guitars and vocals. and attended their show opening for Bombay Bicycle Club (HERE). Not only are they gracious, articulate, and easy on the eyes, but they put on a demon of a show. “Sexual sci-fi” as our critic called it. Think electronic party everything. They’ve been putting out album after album, so their catalogue of music is deep. Every song is a blast.
We’ve got a pair of tickets to give away. To win, tell us what you’d most like to see carried by canoe in the comments section below or by email to Montreal Rampage by noon on October 26. A winner will be chosen at random from among the entries received and notified by email by us.
Royal Canoe and The Belle Game play La Vitrola (4602 St Laurent) on October 29 at 8:30 p.m. Tickets available here $19.
