In Toronto, Ontario, these days, you don’t have to google the closest Michelin-Star restaurant to get a taste of one of the finest wines available this side of The Niagara Escarpment. Garage/Punk/Psychedelic quartet, ‘Wine Lips’, have been serving topped-up, Bordeaux-size glasses of their energetic, high octane, sonic tonic on the North American band circuit since the Fall of 2015. The band consists of vocalist/ guitarist Cam Hilborn, backed up on guitar by Jordan Sosensky, Charlie Weare on bass and Aurora Evans on the drums. You can leave your Sommelier-Certification at home; all you need to bring is a pair of ears to pick up on the notes of aggressive, gritty rhythm accompanied by potent hints of catchy melody and memorable hooks that pair well with your Saturday night out.
Scarlet Demore is an alternative rock band from the Chicago suburbs with high energy and powerful songwriting.
THE NEIGHBORHOOD THREAT
Fresh off the release of their new single, “Razorblade”, The Neighborhood threat aims to deliver high-energy music with their take on punk. Per Jeffrey Thunders (C.T.G.P.), TNT sounds like an, “excellent mix of the roots of punk with such bands as Buzzcocks and the Undertones to The Damned with the pop sensibility of Elvis Costello, The Modern Lovers, and Blondie, with a splash of dirty garage like the Reatards, Ty Segall, and the Strokes.”
