RED MASS


Coming off a summer that’s seen them open for the Black Lips, tour with King Khan and the Shrines and release a video for the single “Sharp” featuring Mac Demarco, Red Mass make a strong case for being one of Canada’s most important and dynamic underground acts. If they aren’t already on your radar, they need to be. Check them out on Friday, September 19th with Big Dick and Tropical Dripps.

This one is an early show (8:30), with 90’s or Bust happening at 11.
