Two acclaimed Western Canadian indie bands, Royal Canoe and Close Talker, promise to give a Red Deer audience a memorable evening of electric, ear-wormish and eccentric sounds.

Two acclaimed Western Canadian indie bands, Royal Canoe and Close Talker, promise to give a Red Deer audience a memorable evening of electric, ear-wormish and eccentric sounds.

Royal Canoe, from Winnipeg, and Close Talker, from Saskatoon, will perform on Friday, Oct. 3, at Bo’s Bar and Grill.

The six-member Royal Canoe evades categorization with a distinctive style that crackles with energy and draws from a wide number of musical genres. The prolific band released its Today We Are Believers album in 2013, after taking part in Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra’s New Music Festival in 2012, arranging and performing a portion of Beck’s Song Reader.

Close Talker is a quartet known for pairing edgy vocals and gentle piano melodies with peppy drums and shimmering guitars.

The group plans on releasing its second album, Flux, in November.

For more information about the show, call 403-309-2200.
