GEOFF BERNER with KRIS DEMEANOR

Sat, 03/05/2011

Vancouverite GEOFF BERNER's Mint Records debut, Victory Party, will emerge on March 8th, 2011, and to celebrate it's release, he is making a stop here at the Marquee Room. His openness to experimentation, spirited Eastern European klezmer influences, punk rock attitude and work with producer/mastermind Josh Dolgin (Socalled) resulted an an innovative, engaging and lively album full of surprises.

An evening spent with Geoff Berner’...s music is, in the words of the good Dr. Hunter S. Thompson, “a wild combination of menace, madness, and genius… fragmented coherence that wreaks havoc on the mind of any listener.” - Vue Weekly

Joining him will be his pal and Calgary's favorite singer/songwriter/poet/shit disturber, KRIS DEMEANOR. His music draws on classic folk story telling, spoken word/rap, and shamelessly hooky pop, which both complicates things for all involved and makes them more interesting.

"... the man, seriously, is the best thing going in Canadian music these days. Musically adventurous and lyrically stunning." - Penguin Eggs
