From the Promoter
THE NORTHERN PIKES
The Northern Pikes have been a band for 34 years, but you’re going to have to forgive them if they’re acting like a new group. In a way, it is a fresh start. There’s a lot of excitement about their first full, cross-Canada tour in over a decade, and the release of a brand-new collection. The Pikes have put together a special 30th anniversary edition of their beloved debut album Big Blue Sky. Featuring the hits Teenland, Things I Do For Money and Dancing In A Danceclub, it helped the group explode out of Saskatchewan and become fixtures and stars on radio and MuchMusic.
But now, it’s a whole new record.
Attica Riots is a musical breath of fresh air. Melodies and words you soak up after a single listen, played, live right before your eyes. The bands' sense of humour shines in the way they have crowds chanting dark, often morbid lyrics while dancing and flashing smiles. They know you'll dance, but they dare you to listen.
