Gentle Party Album Launch! / Moondle / DJ Ford Pier

  • Duello Academy 412 West Hastings Street Vancouver, BC, V6B 1L1 Canada (map)

Come celebrate the release of Gentle Party's debut album, Jouska! Gentle Party's first full length release pioneers a unique, expansive approach to chamber pop that speaks to the quartet's West Coast roots. The album features the hauntingly evocative voice of Jessicka layered on beds of luscious strings. The ensemble of multiple award-winning musicians, Meredith Bates, Shanto Acharia, and Elisa Thorn, on violin, cello, and harp, respectively, provides a strong and beautiful melodic, rhythmic, and textural foundation. The music conjures images of pandemonium and playfulness contrasted with stark heartbreak. All of this anchored in the virtuosityof the players. This stunning new release was produced by the incomparable Chris Gestrin

Moondle is an alternative dark pop quintet based in Vancouver, BC. As our name suggests, we are stirred on by the magical worlds of Jorge Luis Borges; worlds of made up languages, where moons "moondle over the onstreaming", infinite libraries, labyrinths, and mirrors that reflect distorted and unrecognizable things. We hope to invoke sonic and lyrical landscapes that are as imaginative and lush as Borges' words. We invite you to come visit us in these places.

Ford Pier closes out the night with a DJ set of dance tunes to get your booties shakin' on the dance floor! Ford has impecable taste, insurmountable style, and a record collection the size of the old Macaroni Grill!
