Shifting gears to “Dark Americana” style of music, he has also introduced the new Grindshow. With Brandy Bones on upright bass (& sharing lead vocals) and T-Hag on drums (x-LSD), BJB is de-constructing Americana with dark punk, western, blues and garage. They have been laying down their rustic punk sound in studios from Nashville to Vancouver.

Supporting BJB on this performance are locals Malibu Knights and Devon Coyote and BC’s EN.KI is turning 27, making this a very special date. You can also catch A-OK contributors and the all around bad girls from SS RODEO. Get your tickets now at Wentworth Music (1634 Harvey Ave) and Wigwam Rock and Smoke Shop (1423 Ellis St), they’re $10 in advance, $12 at the door after 9pm. Doors are at 8pm.
