Big Fun 2018 & Sled Island present:
A Sled Island Showcase! Featuring:
Wares is a musical project engineered by Edmonton musician Cassia Hardy. From teeth-rattling electric convulsions to barely-there reverb drenched refrains, the musical inflections explored by Wares are as varied as they are enthralling. Based out of Amiskwaciy-Wâskahikan, Treaty 6 territory, Wares bring their mix of heartfelt balladry and grimy, hair-raising punk back to Winnipeg.
A three-headed rock ‘n’ roll beast featuring both bubblegum-chewing ballads and trashy rock ‘n’ roll. Equal parts attitude, hairspray and leopard print, their howling vocals and growling rhythm is glam at its finest.
Newly re-formed as a four-piece, Pleasure Dens continue to spit out their panicked brand of noise-inflected post-punk. Frenetic, disorienting drumming and clamouring bass form a driving backdrop to desperately shouted lyrics and the distorted wails of guitars. Pleasure Dens simultaneously rally against and embrace the ever-present allure of giving up on everything.
