Sunday, September 29, 7pm doors/8pm show, $5
Alternative doom lounge from Toronto
Ace of Wands is the Toronto based trio of Lee Rose, Anna Mernieks and Jody Brumell. The band blends soaring vocals, synth bass, strings and rock guitars into cinematic soundscapes and personal narrative. Playing a dynamic mix of gothic post-rock and pop melodies, the music showcases diverse musicianship and a powerfully engaging live performance. Motivated by the tarot card of the same name, Ace of Wands strives to create, destroy and bring about mental, physical and spiritual transformation. Melancholy pop songs inspired by the horrors of life. And the nice bits too.
Anna has played the ‘Hawk several time with the band Beams.
Touring the U-S-A for the first time, but they’ll be doing some dates down here with Ron Hawkins in November…
“The band bring together songwriter Lee Rose with Jody Brumell and Beams’ Anna Mernieks. The resulting sound is an enchanting blend of rock music, classical violin and folk tradition, showcasing vocals, synth-bass, guitar and strings.
As the group’s tarot card-inspired name implies, the music displays will and determination — both in terms of creation and destruction, and ringing about transformation.” – Exclaim!
The band is active in mental health activism: https://nowtoronto.com/music/features/ace-of-wands-mental-health/
