The Courtneys - (Set time: 12:00 AM)
The Courtneys
The Courtneys drift back to the sound of the early '90s, drawing from strong influences including Teenage Fanclub, Pavement, Eddy Current Suppression Ring, and The Clean. Courtney Loove's dreamy guitar riffs add a timeless powerpop element to the punk backbone formed by Sydney Koke's driving basslines, while drummer/lead singer Jen Twynn Payne delivers heartfelt lyrics with a powerful vocal style. These components come together through a passionate collaborative songwriting process to deliver a special blend of fuzzy "artisanal grunge". The first eponymous Courtneys album came out in 2013 on small independent label, Hockey Dad Records, based in the band's hometown of Vancouver, BC, Canada. They have since worked with a number of independent labels including Conquest of Noise in Australia and Waterslide Records in Japan, as well as Burger Records and Gnar tapes in the USA. They have released a number of singles and music videos, and toured throughout Canada and the USA, including spots supporting Tegan and Sara and Mac Demarco. In 2015 The Courtneys made their way to Australia and New Zealand, where they were hosted by Flying Nun Records. Influenced by the legendary label from early on, the group are honored to now be able to call it their home."
Dilly Dally - (Set time: 11:00 PM)
Dilly Dally
Dilly Dally began as a teenage dream shared by Katie Monks and Liz Ball. Obsessed with slurred poetry, epic ballads, and grungy guitars, they’ve been writing music together since 2009. The band itself, however, has taken much longer to become what it is today.

Members have came and went, but just recently the two best friends welcomed new drummer, Benjamin Reinhartz (Beliefs), and bassist, Jimmy Billy Rowlinson (Mexican Slang), into the project. This new found collaborative energy has ignited their live show, drawing attention from Toronto’s renowned noise/punk scene. Pretty weird considering Monks’ fierce loyalty to a classic pop song structure.

Last spring, Dilly Dally self-released their first single, entitled ‘Next Gold.’ The song has since received praise from Pitchfork, NME, and Brooklyn Vegan. It came from a collection of material the band recorded with producers Leon Taheny (Owen Pallett, Austra, Dusted) and Josh Korody (Fucked Up, Beliefs, Greys) at Candle Studios in 2013. Dilly Dally plans on releasing much of this in the near future.

The band is now deep into creating their first full length. The teenage dream has never died, though it has grown heavier, louder…and seems as though its screeching to escape into the real world. In four words: Dilly Dally is pumped.
