SANDJAM CONCERT PRESENTED BY LIVE 105 (19+ Event)

AUGUST 30, 2014

 

the-new-pornographersSports & Entertainment Atlantic is thrilled to announce that The New Pornographers will be performing at the SandJam concert presented by Live 105 on Saturday August 30, 2014. The concert will take place on our waterfront event site allowing concert goers to dance the night away on the sand while still in the heart of Halifax.

 

Since their debut in 2000, The New Pornographers have released five studio albums including their most recent, Together (2010), of which, NPR Music praised, “Unimpeachable pop gems…these are the songs of summer” while ELLE magazine asserted, “The New Pornographers have done what all great bands do: Evolve…unpretentious and unbelievably infectious.”

 

Brill Bruisers (available on August 25, 2014) is the first new release in four years from the acclaimed supergroup, who have been called, “virtually peerless in the world of power-pop and indie-rock” by NPR Music. Additionally, the New Yorker describes the band’s music as, “…magnificent and clever…,” while Stereogum proclaims, “In recent history, no group has featured so much formidable established talent, collaborating on a regular basis.”

 

Opening for our headliners, The New Pornographers will be 2014 East Coast Music Award Rising

Star winners, the Town Heroes. This alt-rock power duo’s crafty, catchy, lyrical, hard-hitting

and anthemic songs will be a perfect addition to our SandJam beach party. Kicking the night

off will be Halifax’s own Neon Dreams. This 4-piece electronic/pop group combines the typical

production/DJ format of EDM and adds live instrumentals to being an entirely different element

to their on-stage performance.
