Here’s something that happens, like, never… Cape Breton rock royalty – Sunfish and Slowcoaster – share a night at The Carleton on Thursday, December 21st. Show time is 9 PM and admission is $15 at the door. This’ll be a sensational way to kick off the holiday season, folks and, let’s face it, it’s not like it’s going to happen again any time soon!
One of the very first Cape Breton bands to come to the attention of MuchMusic, thanks to their brilliant Mola Mola album, Sunfish set the bar high for all the CB acts that would follow them and it was a sad, sad day when they decided to call it quits. With band leader Tom Fidgen relocated to Toronto (his A Boy Called Fish solo album is seriously worth tracking down), reunion gigs were few and far between (like decades between), which is why this Carleton show is going to be such a treat. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see why Sunfish is considered one of the East Coast’s seminal rock bands!
Utilizing relateable and captivating lyrics, reinforced by a commanding groove, Slowcoaster takes you on a ride to the heart of the party with no apologies. Throwing down their high-energy, dance-worthy tunes, the Cape Breton trio fuses ska, reggae, hip hop and classic house influences with their unique brand of funky rock and roll. Having spent the past twenty years traversing the Canadian live music landscape, the band has firmly established themselves as one of the country’s most popular jam rock bands.
