    Royal City Music Series Vol. 10//

    Dear Royal City Lovelies!

    Come check out Vol.10 of the Royal City Music Series on November 18th at the ebar!! All of the rock and folk magic will ensue as the dreamiest bands join us for great night of music and Royal City beer.

    Featuring Dan Edmonds, Let’s Just Be friends, and Nicolette and the Nobodies.

    //Dan Edmonds//

    Edmonds presents himself as “a folkie with a tough, inner-city edge” on the new disc, breaking away from the Americana tag that was largely attached to his former group.

    The world from which Dan Edmonds’ Ladies on the Corner hails is not our own. A former Harlan Pepper, Edmonds’ psychedelically spun country tales take listeners back in time to a place where the pace is slower, the air is thick with smoke and love is much more potent.

    The entire record sounds cast in sonic sepia tone. The vocal and instrumental distortion throughout is warm rather than harsh, making the record feel like a found treasure, each song a chronicle of the past. Rocking opener and album standout “To Be That Needle” is like a confession of love to the girl next door delivered through a tin can, while “Love Can Be A Tunnel” echoes off a highway bridge as a Packard Clipper rumbles overhead. On “Couches,” Edmonds plunks down in front of a creaky piano to tell tales gathered on his travels to an eager audience bunched up on a ratty old couch.

    By the end of Ladies on the Corner, Edmonds recasts the folk standard “Goodnight Irene,” almost like a nod to listeners to let us know that although we have indeed taken a trip to the past, it’s time to return to our own world. Despite its retro quality, Edmonds’ debut solo album is imaginative and fresh, a trip well worth taking. (Missed Connection Records)

    //Let’s Just Be Friends//

    Let’s Just Be Friends is a candid, four-piece folk/pop collective formed amongst friends and family in Guelph, Ontario.

    “As we forge on in our mutual endeavour to resist the constraints of folk music (or a least the general understanding of the genre), we find ourselves struggling to classify our style and we hesitate to tie it to any recognized categorical name. Instead we prefer to provide our own nomenclature. So when asked, “What type of music do you play?” we find it best to be simple, polite, forthright and slightly tongue-in-cheek:
    We play folk-fuck.”

    Sarah Gabriel – vocals, guitar, drums, Teo Schwartzentruber – cello, Katrin Sawatzky – vocals, guitar, keyboard, glockenspiel, drums, & Jordan Gabriel – vocals, guitar, keyboard, glockenspiel, drums.

    //Nicolette and The Nobodies//
    Backroads and broken hearts. Steppin’ out and steppin’ off. One part dancing shoes, two parts melancholy. That’s the recipe for the five-piece of Royal City regulars as they bring the sound of your grandma’s country back from glitz and glamour to the dusty, lonely, and broke sounds that feel most at home in vast open spaces and bringing a tear to every glass eye in the room.

    Doors at 9:30 – Music at 10pm

    10$ at the door
