Saturday 9 August: BLIMP ROCK, with HENRY ADAM SVEC
8pm in the Main Hall. Blimp Rock is the light-hearted, relentlessly catchy musical outlet of Peter Demakos, and a supporting cast of Southern Ontario’s finest indie rockers, including members of Ohbijou and Forest City Lovers. Their self-titled debut record, Blimp Rock, released in May 2013, received critical acclaim from such publications as BeatRoute and GrayOwl Point for it’s positive energy and ability to convey meaningful messages in a witty, accessible way. The album also went on to be selected into rotation at CBC Radio 3 and picked up by DIY labels Tree Machine (Bloomington, Indiana) and Label Fantastic! (Guelph, Ontario).
2014 will see Blimp Rock ramping up their campaign to bring their highly unique brand of pop/rock to more audiences than ever before with tour dates scheduled in France, Germany and Eastern Canada as well as the release of a new single. Stay tuned for a PowerPoint presentation followed by a rock concert at a venue near you!
