Ottawa Explosion Weekend presents…
Friday June 15
Mint Records showcase
Peach Kelli Pop (Los Angeles, CA / Ottawa, ON)
PEACH KELLI POP is a band from Los Angeles, CA by way of Ottawa, Canada and was founded by multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Allie Hanlon. The band is known for playing Ramones-structured rock songs: Fast tempos, 4/4 drums, layered with loud guitars, and laden with immediate, infectious vocal melodies.
Tough Age (Toronto, ON)…
Tough Age is NOT a punk band.
BBQT band (Montreal, QC)
BBQT is a St. John’s born project that continues in Montreal. Their power pop songs confront ideas of pepsi addictions, bad tinder dates and being lonely on an island you wish was Hawaii.
DUSK (Appleton, WI)
Dusk walks cleanly between these two worlds; pulling influence from both but most strongly associating with Rock & Roll and Rhythm & Blues. They bring with them a strong, informed, melodic statement that draws a line between themselves and the trend of bubble gum pop and country-influenced mall schlock.
