Flame-haired Australian “vixen” Aurora Jane will team up with indie band Picture the Ocean for a musical double-bill on Friday at Red Deer’s The Vat.

Picture the Ocean is the new moniker for keyboardist Jacquie B and bassist Jesse Dee, who are now a trio with Matt Blackie on drums.

The alt-pop group will provide ample backup for singer/guitarist Jane, who’s described as “Chaka Khan meets Primus.” Her bubbly music is a blend of funk and rock with a soulful groove.

Picture the Ocean gives a roots-rock edge to dreamy harmonies and powerhouse ballads, drawing on many contemporary influences to come up with a distinct and catchy sound.

For more information about the show that’s touring Canada, Australia and Europe, call 403-346-5636.
