Metric with July Talk – Art of Doubt Tour 2019

Metric + July Talk are both undeniable Canadian indie-rock institutions; each in their own right. Both bands were born from an intense amount of grassroots, dues-paying, small club circuit slogging thanks to which both bands eventually found a fan base that embraced their distinctive sound, original songwriting and tireless work ethic.

Metric + July Talk are both undeniable Canadian indie-rock institutions; each in their own right. Both bands were born from an intense amount of grassroots, dues-paying, small club circuit slogging thanks to which both bands eventually found a fan base that embraced their distinctive sound, original songwriting and tireless work ethic. They each create songs that instantly become both wide reaching radio anthems and incredibly personal creations to their fans. Both bands are comprised, socially, politically and professionally insightful and barrier breaking, out-of-the-box thinkers, business leaders and artistic creators.

If you were dreading a long winter and you were wondering how to handle it, we have exciting news that will give you something to look forward. Friday, February 1 – Victoria BC Ska & Reggae Society is excited to bring back one of our favourite groove bands of all time – OZOMATLI, for a winter dance party to warm the soul.

Since 1995 Ozomatli have been spreading their sounds of freedom and joy infused with various Latin American rhythms, hip hop, reggae, funk and everything in between. After Ozomatli’s incredible appearance on our mainstage this past summer at Victoria’s 19th Annual Ska & Reggae Festival alongside their long time band mate Chali 2na, we couldn’t think of a better band to help get us moving and power us through the final dregs of winter.

For their triumphant return to Victoria, this time rocking Capital Ballroom, Ozomatli will be joined by BATUQUE AXÉ who represent Victoria’s Axe Capoeria School. Batuque Axe specializes in samba, reggae, Forro, Baiao and funk. Batuque Axé are one of the most captivating groups on the west coast of Canada combining all of these aforementioned genres with traditional Brazilian dances (samba) and the Afro-Brazilian martial-art, Capoeira. Our longtime friend and ally REBEL SELECTOR will be in town to keep things rocking when the bands aren’t blasting.

Tickets for the Victoria show also on sale Friday, November 2, 2018 on ticketweb.ca. Hard copies available at Lyle’s Place, Vinyl Envy, Jupiter & Fascinating Rhythm.
