TURF 2015 Club Bonus Series: Royal Canoe at Lee's Palace - Concert Pictures
Royal Canoe were the headliners for the first TURF Club Bonus Series show at Lee's Palace on September 16. They're an indie pop band from Winnipeg and Steinbeck, Manitoba. Highs, the opening band, really built these guys up saying things like their new songs are the best songs ever.
Royal Canoe deliver cool dance beats, bass-heavy grooves. layers of instrumentation and elaborate use of effects. The band mentioned that they're mixing their new album remotely while they're on the road, so we can expect new music from them in the not-too-distant future.
I know everyone wants a packed house; a sold out show. But selfishly, the crowd size at Lee's this night was the perfect size. The floor was full and bopping with good natured dancers. The second level was well populated but with enough space to allow me to move around the whole club and get a wide range of pics.
