I first heard Yukon Blonde perform on a gorgeous sunny day in Burnaby at the Burnaby Blues & Roots Festival way back in the summer of 2010. They blew me away on that afternoon. Since they won me over they have toured North America, played at the musical melting pot known as SXSW, were named one of the 10 Canadian Bands Destined To BREAK in 2010 by the CBC, and deemed the best band at Canadian Music Week in 2010. Kinda makes my accolades seem less important.
As we head into the chilly “winter” months in Vancouver the band is back out on the road and will be hitting the stage at one of my favourite venues, The Biltmore Cabaret on November 10th. This 37 date tour takes the band from coast to coast, North & South in North America and Down Undah for a New Year’s Eve show in Brisbane. If you enjoy indie rock with a heavy sound led by guitars then you need to get your ass to the Biltmore on the 10th. This is a show from a great local talent that is not to be missed.
