Come make a racket with an ACC favourite Oct. 1
Formed in 2002, Elliott Brood (the name, a bastardized homage to the fem fatal character in the 1984 Baseball film The Natural) united teenage pals Sasso and Laforet over their grown-up love for Neil Young, The Band and the Flying Burrito Brothers. Pitkin was an accidental miracle: he fell into the group after working sound at one of their earliest concerts, offering to record their first EP. Tin Type was a college radio hit and soon this compact trio was making some big noise. Sharing vocals and trading instruments – each of the band-members seems to play everything – Elliott Brood have become one of the premier acts in Canadian roots music.
Dan Edmonds will be opening the night up. This Hamilton neighbour of the Brood presents himself as a folkie with a tough, inner-city edge.
A member of the now disbanded Harlan Pepper Edmonds has undergone a stylistic shift and honed his clear-eyed and evocative storytelling skills.
Backing Edmonds will be drummer Jason Bhattacharya, bassist Brad Germain and lead guitarist Jimmy Hayes
Doors open at 7 p.m., Show starts at 8 p.m. Ticket are $30 in advance and $35 at the door.
