CONTEST – Everything All The Time, Lioness and Rich Aucoin @ The Horseshoe – January 30, 2010
Frank YangBig-voiced frontwomen. Loads of synths. No guitars. This Saturday night at the Horseshoe will come two examples of how differently that same musical recipe can come out. On one hand, you’ve got Everything All The Time, led by Alanna Stuart, and their breezy, vintage-y feel-good synth-pop. On the other, the decidedly heavier and darker Lioness, who back Vanessa Fischer with sounds and attitude befitting their disco-punk roots. And rounding things out is Halifax’s Rich Aucoin, whose keyboard-first, big orchestral dance-pop actually fits quite nicely between the two of them, but being a dude he didn’t really fit into the preceding argument.
Anyways. The takeaway from all this is that it’s a solid, eclectic bill at the ‘Shoe this Saturday night – January 30 – and while admission is $8 at the door, courtesy of contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to see Everything All The Time” in the subject line and your full name in the body, and get that in to me before midnight, January 28.
