Upcoming Shows!

Ottawa Explosion presents...

FRIDAY AUGUST 30TH 2013

KETAMINES (Toronto, ON/Lethbridge, AB)
http://ketamines.bandcamp.com/

The Ketamines is music from James Leroy and Paul Lawton. Based simultaneously out of Lethbridge and Toronto, The Ketamines live band(s) have featured over one hundred members to date, touring most of North America in various disguises, disgracing themselves and dishonoring their fathers. The Ketamines have put out two singles and one LP on a variety of labels that like and trust them completely. Their friends find them “intolerable” and “annoying” and as such they find it hard to find connection or love in this cruel world. Ambition with no expectation.

TOUGH AGE (Vancouver, BC)
http://tough-age.bandcamp.com/

Tough Age blends scrappy pop-punk with surf overtones and are influenced by obscure 60's CanCon singles, Guided By Voices, cats and comic books.

AVERAGE TIMES (Ottawa, ON)
http://averagetimes.bandcamp.com/

Sweet yet nasty garage tunes for punk teens and adult degenerates. Tape out on Bruised Tongue very soon!

PUP (Toronto, ON)
http://puptheband.bandcamp.com/
BLACKBREAD (Ottawa, ON)
-plus- DJ Emmett (Mod Club)

Cousin Nestor is coming to town!! And this time he is bringing a sweet showcase of Toronto bands - I've heard a lot of chatter about THE DIRTY NIL and am super excited to finally get a chance to catch their live show -
these guys hit it pretty hard and heavy while keeping the party going strong - pop sensibility/melody mixed with aggressive hooked out heaviness. PUP has risen from the ashes of TOPANGA to carry on their strong legacy of
brilliant musicianship and hard travelled road dedication - probably one of the most energetic bands on the current circuit - these guys can do it all!! First show for BLACKBREAD - my new project with members of FOGBOTTOM, KLOVENHOOFS, HEAT MACHINES, BOOM CREEK etc.
Its gonna be a short/sweet first set so get to there early!!

Friday August 30th
House of TARG
Doors@8pm/5$/BYOB
bands done at 11pm, arcade open till 1am.
Don't forget your quarters!!!
