Where the Forest songs are… Music festival in Chilliwack

Our friends from CiTR and Discorder magazine are putting a super trippy festival on Island 22 park. I have never heard of that place before. The bands are really good, this is your opportunity to catch emerging bands before they get big. Then you can say to your friends “yeah I remember I saw Teen Daze at a festival in Chilliwack in 2011”. That is if the world doesn’t end in 2012.

We Need Surgery

Listen to the podcast in the postcast. I was blown away by the quality of this band. I have an EP called Simon Says and it is really good but it doesn’t capture the energy and the charisma that they portray when they play LIVE! The songs will crawl into your head and stay there until you have to play them in your stereo at loud volume.
A lot of bands and influences rushed through my head when I was watching at them, the first one was De Lorean, that Spanish band, but also some songs really remind me of The Strokes, so I guess they pop indie rock is between the electronic ambient of De Lorean and the guitar riffs of the Strokes. “Joy Division” says Miso, the singer “The Smiths” replies Valentino, other answers start flowing “New Order, The Cure, Britpop, Donosaur Jr. The Velvet Underground, T-Rex”. I saw them at the Biltmore and invited them to The Morning After Show a couple of weeks after that to know more about this indie band.
