ABOUT PAPER BEAT SCISSORS | 

Tim Crabtree’s haunting voice burns at the centre of the Paper Beat Scissors sound with an honesty and rawness that skirts discomfort. The relocated-Brit began the project following a move to Canada’s East Coast and soon caught the attention of his adoptive home, recording the highly-acclaimed self-titled debut with Michael Feuerstack (the Luyas) producing and Arcade Fire drummer Jeremy Gara mixing. The album, released on Forward Music in Canada and Ferryhouse in Germany, Austria, Switzerland found its way onto BBC and CBC airwaves and the cover CD of Rolling Stone Magazine in Germany.

PBS has toured Canada and Europe, sharing the stage with the likes of Mark Kozelek (Sun Kil Moon/Red House Painters), Owen Pallett, Tanya Tagaq, Great Lake Swimmers and Dan Mangan. An onstage collaboration with Clogs (regular collaborators and members of the National and My Brightest Diamond) was released as a limited-edition 7″ for International Record Store Day 2013. The new album “Go On”, set into motion with engineer Dean Nelson (Beck, Thurston Moore, Bat for Lashes), was released in 2015.

Delta Will & Rogue Tenant Live at Burdock

Come celebrate the release of Weathering with this homecoming show at the end of Delta Will's east-coast tour!


Buy tickets: http://burdockto.com/shows/?show=182
$12 in advance, $15 at the door
Doors at 9:30pm, Show at 10:00pm


Delta Will
With their debut LP Weathering, Delta Will reflect the unsettling nature of being alive today, struggling to maintain hope, love and good will in a world that seems to be catapulting toward its end. Recorded with veteran indie-rock producer Chris Stinger, Weathering shows a maturing of Delta Will’s existential-pop ­sound. The album’s electro-infused beats and samples merge with soulful psych-rock, while cinematic soundscapes induce an out-of-body experience, as though we are floating around, calmly observing the world below. 

Rogue Tenant
Rogue Tenant is a new project from Toronto songwriter Patrick Grant. The music is a combination of sounds influenced by the song-centric sonic diversity of artists like Yo La Tengo and Hayden, as well as incorporating textural elements from post-rock and 70s art punk. Rogue Tenant is a reinvention of Patrick Grant and Flesh Vignettes, who released the "Gather All Around You" EP in 2013. The finishing touches are currently being put on a new EP entitled "Out In The Ether" that will drop later this year.

BEN KUNDER | 
His voice fills your heart and keeps you warm. Ben Kunder writes songs for everyone. Trained as an actor and musical theatre performer, Ben has a way of breaking down the fourth wall and connecting with people. His powerful voice is a driving force in his music, guiding his songs by creating impressive and tactful melodies and dynamics. Ben has been writing and producing his music independently for over 8 years, and to make records, has had many opportunities to work, get his hands dirty and appreciate the beautiful struggle. A handyman and carpenter, Ben has lived all across this beautiful country, and is now back to where he started his journey in his hometown of Toronto. His new album ‘Golden’, coproduced with John Dinsmore of Lincoln County Social Club and NQ Arbuckle was released in May 2015. Ben Kunder is full of spirit and his songs embody love and the struggle of the human condition.

SARAH MACDOUGALL | 
Described by the magazine Rootstime in Belgium as ‘One of the greatest talents of our era”, and listed as the “2nd best gig” by the major UK newspaper The Independent, becoming the #1 most played artist on Canadian Galaxie Folk/Roots radio, Western Canadian Music Award winning artist Sarah MacDougall is getting known for her honest and poetic songs, passionate performances, and unique voice. Born in Sweden, Swedish magazine Nöjesguiden declared her “One of Sweden’s best singer/songwriters”.

Since the release of award-winning The Greatest Ones Alive in 2011, Sarah has been touring Canada and Europe endlessly, taking time to work on songs and record between tours. Last winter, she hunkered down under the Northern Lights in Whitehorse and put the final touches on the sonically rich album which was to become Grand Canyon. 

The songs are about identity, love, fear, hope, growing up, rootlessness, forgiveness. They are written from the point of view of the hopeful outsider, trying to figure out their place and make sense of the world. Grand Canyon sees Sarah challenging herself and pushing new boundaries musically and sonically, and it is an album that will surely see Sarah reach new levels in her career. Sarah has played festivals such as Iceland Airwaves, Winnipeg Folk Festival, The Great Escape, and she will continue to tour and write music throughout 2015.

The BelleRegards & Places Erupt
Live at The Monarch Tavern

Join us at The Monarch Tavern for our first show of 2016!

WHEN| Friday, January 22, 2016
DOORS| 8:30PM
MUSIC | 9:30PM
COVER AT DOOR | $10

The BelleRegards | 

Described as “Rowdy Folk”, encompassing Americana, bluegrass and trad., the band is driven by Matthew Kingsley (Lennoxville, QC) and Melanie Hilmi (Belleville, ON). Matt’s intensity paired with Melanie’s earthiness, results in complex, rich and edgy, male and female lead vocals. Mitchell Thomson (Calgary, AB), brings a strong country influence and a percussive slap-style on his upright bass. David Poulin (Zenonpark, SK) is a French-Canadian fiddler and adds bright punchy hooks. Combined they have created a unique sound with songs both playful and heartfelt, often with lively gang vocals.

Places Erupt | 

Toronto based quintet, consisting of acoustic guitar, electric cello, violin, drums, and vocals, fuses classical, folk, and rock, drawing from thousands of influences ranging from Tom Waits and Leonard Cohen to Modest Mouse and Dmitri Shostakovich. Releasing their first EP 3 years ago they are now sitting on their first full length album. In between those records, they have toured extensively, playing bars, houses, outdoor festivals and gallery spaces for art collectives. 

"Places Erupt play elegantly fluid, elemental chamber-folk-rock, built on the tensions between dynamic swells, the spaces between sounds, places most bands only glance at on their way to the chorus. Half string ensemble and half rock band, their sound is fueled by dizzying, grotesque filigrees of noise pitted against fragile, sonorous beauty and matched with a warped lyrical poetry.
On their debut album Arctic Ballroom, they delve into anxieties both modern and ancient, exploding them into cinematic compositions which paint very private emotions onto enormous canvasses. It is lush and haunting, beautiful and deeply unsettling in equal measure." - Colin Gibson, Audio Reckoning
