The Historic Red Dog Tavern in Peterborough hosted a lineup of four growing Canadian artists on Friday night.
First on the bill was local singer-songwriter Nathan Miller. He played a number of original songs, and finished with a unique cover of Amy Winehouse’s “Valerie”. His City and Colour-esque sound was a great way to kickstart the night.
Next up was Ottawa brother-band Double Magnum. After a fun and energetic set, the band finished by jumping off the stage and playing an unplugged acoustic song with just a ukulele and a guitar. The band’s talent and genre-crossing sound sets them apart, and I expect they’ll go far.
Paper Shakers was the third band to play. Despite the small venue, this group played with an energy that captivated the audience. It won’t be long before you see them on much larger stages. Be sure to check out their latest single, “Mona Lisa”.
Closing out the night was garage-psych band Peace Sand Rest. The group played a true rock n’ roll set that had the crowd head-banging. Keep an eye out for their new record, which will be released in September.
