Black Mountain / Ladyhawk / The Pack A.D.
April 24, 2009, 9pm
128 York Street, Ottawa
Indie rock fans, get ready for a musical ride you won’t forget. Don’t miss psychedelic tunes from popular collective Black Mountain, the haunting sounds of indie quartet Ladyhawk, and the blues-rock dynamic duo The Pack A.D. All three bands have achieved fame and good fortune on the road to stardom.
Black Mountain is a band on a meteoric rise – they opened for superstar band Coldplay, were finalists for the prestigious 2008 Polaris Music Prize, and their song Stay Free was on airwaves everywhere as part of the soundtrack for the smash hit movie Spider-Man 3.
Ladyhawk’s international reputation has been solidified with their latest album described as “a party for the last house standing in a sea of strip malls and condos... Ladyhawk getting loose, turning up loud, downing a few more and howling at the moon.”
And with influences as diverse as Cat Stevens, Leadbelly and Peter Greenaway, The Pack A.D. is a guitar and drum howling blues duo holding the torch high in today’s garage rock revival, striking with a raw, hell-torn swagger that is equally contemplative and unflinching.
This concert will be a live broadcast on CBC Radio 3 radio3.cbc.ca
