The Besnard Lakes 10th Anniversary of Are The Dark Horse - (Set time: 12:30 AM)
Montreal’s The Besnard Lakes released The Besnard Lakes Are the Dark Horse in 2007, a record which both set their path sonically — the Beach Boys aesthetic by way of Pink Floyd and shoegaze — and cemented them as part of the Canadian city’s exploding music scene. (Members of Stars, The Dears and Godspeed You! Black Emperor played on it, and singer/guitarist Jace Lasek’s Breakglass Studio is where many classic Montreal records have been made.) The scene looks a little different than it did in 2007 but the album still sounds great. The Besnard Lakes will be celebrating the album’s 10th anniversary by playing it in full live at a few special shows including Sept 15th at Horseshoe Tavern
Heaters - (Set time: 11:30 PM)
Old high school chums, Tamlyn and Krebs moved to Grand Rapids, Michigan, in the summer of 2013 to start working on a project together. The two met Korf, their next door neighbor, soon after and quickly started writing and recording tunes in their home studio.

2014 saw the trio make some tremendous leaps, spewing out a handful of homespun EPs, split records, and an appearance on Stolen Body's Vegetarian Meat psych compilation. Their first EP, Solstice, was released 10/17 on dizzybird records. 2015 promises to be a big year for the band, as Brooklyn-based psych label Beyond Beyond is Beyond Records will be releasing a 7" single, due out April 28, as well as the band's debut full-length long-player.

The group has drawn acclaim across the webosphere for their spacey, driving take on West Coast psych rock. Tapping into both the twang of their '60s garage compatriots and building their own brand of expansive, cosmic swells, Pitchfork calls the band "catchy and kinetic," noting their "energy and hook writing are clearly on point."

Combining a seemingly constant output of "reverb coated, fuzz studded, hard driven garage psych" with a kaleidoscopic, hip-shaking live set, HEATERS are quickly forging something new and exciting.
