Eagle Lake Owls - promo

On Tuesday June 17th 2014, the Eagle Lake Owls roll into The Rainbow to share their folk songs about small town life, long winters and endless summers, filtered through a dusty car window. Guy-girl harmonies and rustic instrumentals paint stark portraits of the Canadian prairies.

They’ll be joined by Vancouver’s Joyce Island. With comparisons to Patsy Cline, Fleetwood Mac and Tom Petty-styled Americana, Joyce Island’s affinity for classic country shines through in her mix of swagger, powerful pipes, and pain-purging melodies. Her debut, self-titled EP has been receiving national radio play on CBC and has garnered her significant media attention.

Opening up the evening will be Espialist. Mike Wall has been there and back with sonic limits, and while his new sounds are on the light side, one can’t help but notice a quality in-between the notes that his experience has infused into his writing process. Not necessarily inspired by a normal “verse / chorus / verse” song structure, he feels just as at home expressing his materiel in a “vignette de pensee” fashion as he does in expressing himself with long, slow-burning songs.

The doors open at 8pm, with the show starting around 9pm. Tickets are only $8.
