Calgary band Flowshine is on the way to Prince George. The rock unit has been churning through B.C. on the most westerly leg of their latest tour, and they stop in at Nancy O's on Dec. 7 to show off their latest material. After a highly acclaimed album Mountain Queen, they are now supporting their new release Soak Me Like A Wave (Sunny Day).
"We are a hard-working band that has performed throughout Canada over the last five years in an eclectic and extensive list of bars, campfires, cafes, basements, festival stages, and the like; from Edge of The World Festival on Haida Gwaii to clubs in the heart of downtown Moncton. Our new album reflects our time on the road and our passion for getting people excited," said band member Jeremiah Erhardt.
Their sound is not easy to pin down into a one-word description. The closest they could muster as a group was a sense of good times, a spirit of making memories and pushing happy buttons.
"The band intends their songs and shows to be positive, engaging, and danceable, but also demonstrate the uniquely skillful musical spin their jazz-trained rhythm section is capable of," they said. They added that they "love blending styles, working with a wide spectrum of sounds, creating layered rhythms, and deeply textural tunes."
Their stage presentation agrees with their melodies and rhythms. You're likely to see a homemade light show or, in lieu of pyrotechnics, a bubble blast. Often there are guest musicians called up on stage. They want to provide an experience worthy of a name like Flowshine.
The music starts at 8 p.m.
Admission is $5 at the door.
