Live at Electric Owl

July 27th 2012 
The Electric Owl

Boutique Empire presents:

Combine the Victorious

Combine the Victorious celebrates the release of the bandʼs new single and video “Paros” at the Electric Owl Social Club, July 27th, Vancouver Canada. This exceedingly stylish event will definitely include music and may encourage dancing. Sound good? Yes, we thought so too.

Creating a sound that resides somewhere between the heady waters of Chic and Portishead, Mark R Henning (formerly of Pure/Guilty About Girls) and Isabelle Dunlop (formerly of Sex With Strangers) are performing songs from their latest album (The Agreement). Come dance, say hello, or help spread the word of fun.

Sharing the bill will be friends to CtV, Onelight and Fuzzum, who are:

Onelight is singer Amy Usher and drummer Hamish Thomson (The Hermit/Big Tall Garden). With a shared love things folk, indie rock and ambient electronica, Amy and Hamishʼs music is emotionally rich with vocal harmonies and tripped out ambient textures. The blend of layered percussive beats and smooth vocals slinks around reference points embracing Morecheeba, Massive Attack and Beth Orton. Onelight is currently in the studio mixing their debut album with Howard Redekopp; planned release date set for September.

Fuzzum is a supersecret side project of Jordy Birch (lead singer of Pure/Guilty About Girls) and Lucas T Poth (Guilty About Girls). A more blissed out indie fuzz rock version than their other projects, Fuzzum is all about noisy pop/rock jams.

And there will also be DJ sets! Juice (Yoko Casionos) will hit the proverbial decks to perfect the evening of music, dancing, and levity.

Doors at 8PM - Early Show - begins at 8:30 sharp Tickets $10 at the door.
