Halifax power pop pioneers bring TUNS to Club Land

You can call it a super group if you dare as key members of Sloan, Superfriendz/Flashing Lights and Inbreds come together as TUNS live in Club Land.

Canadians are too polite to call a band a super group but if we were down with such bravado, we’d declare TUNS as one. Key players from the hot 90s Halifax indie rock scene come together for pure power pop pleasure. Chris Murphy, bespectacled bassist/vocalist from Sloan joins Superfriendsz/Flashing Lights kingpin Matt Murphy and Inbreds front man Mike O’Neill.

More grizzled members of NXNE’s programming team regale us with tales of searching through mail bags (mail bags!?) in the first days of the fest and pulling out cassettes (cassettes!?) from an Halifax Indie label called Murderrecords. And what treasures they found, our colleagues tell us endlessly. And these three guys were in the middle of it. Did Halifax become the new Seattle? Ummm, maybe not but these musicians became important players on the Canadian scene and we at NXNE are proud to present their latest irresistible efforts.

See the legend of TUNS live at the Garrison, Wednesday June 15 as part of Northby’s Club Land series. Go to tickets tab on this page to reserve your spot at this show.
