This year for Montreal’s Nuit Blanche (27 February), Brothers and Sisters Records is bringing musical Propulsion to the indoor ice skating rink Atrium Le 1000 (located inside Bonaventure Metro), with an evening of live performances and DJ’s from 5PM to Midnight.
pachyderm will be performing two sets over the course of the evening. The band are notorious for playing in atypical spaces such as underneath the Van Horne bypass, on top of a tug boat, and for Nuit Blanche in 2015, an indoor, public swimming pool. pachyderm will be playing songs from their recent album Two Weeks of Spring, which reaches into the netherworld between Eastern and Western musical traditions and fuses it all with the power and the fury of rock.
« pachyderm’s mastery is such that you get the sense that they are going to create magic every time they pick up their instruments. » RIDE THE TEMPO
« A band with the energy of ten creative minds (however they are only two) blending their musical psyche into one mystical being. » IX DAILY
Electronic-duo V O Y E U R will also be performing a set of beat driven, night-time soundtrack music, to send skaters spinning around the arena towards the midnight hour.
Finally, DJ’s Sons of Suns will be mixing up some soul, disco, rock’n’roll and psych music between the live sets to keep the triple lutzing going on in the rink.
The Atrium Le 1000 ice rink will be illuminated in a red ambiance for this special evening.
This event is a co-production between Brothers and Sisters Records and Atrium Le 1000.
