It's been quickly coming up on us, and this weekend is the first ever Change of Frequency music festival in New Westminster. Put together by Minna Simko in memory of her husband and our dear friend Todd Simko, this is the realization of a dream Todd held to bring live music back to the Columbia Theatre in New West.
We've been rehearsing away in the studio, both bands making a lovely racket in our peaceful neighbourhood (thank you to out extraordinarily tolerant neighbours!) and things are sounding really amazing. Combine the Victorious has the best line up ever with the additions of Juice and Misty. The new songs are epic and masterful sounding, and there is even a brand new song written specifically for Todd Simko that will open the show.
Pure has expanded its lineup for this one off performance. All good friends of Todd's, Jordy Birch and Mark Henning have even managed to get a hold of Leigh Grant (Pure's original drummer) to join them for a definitive version of Denial on stage this coming Saturday night. With eight bands on the bill, it set is relatively short, but the music is sounding great and we're all excited to be playing some of the classic tracks.
Come on out for both nights of great music, Friday night promises a more folk bases start, but concludes with the music of Fake Shark Real Zombie. Saturday night is jam packed with indie rock, punk rock, garage rock, electronic experimental pop and of course the songs of Pure and Guilty About Girls. It'll be great, not to be missed!
Tickets available online right now, but they are almost sold out, so get em quick!
