Dream Girl 88 (Vic)
Back in the day, Richie Felix Alexander’s parents use to pick up ‘K-tel 80s mixtapes’ from the gas station. These tapes always featured a variety of different artists and were the soundtrack to his early life. As a youngster, he was exposed to 80's pop, club, synth-pop, you name it. Years later, he wanted to re-create what he remembered of those early tapes from memory. Dream Girl 88 was born.
Through a slew of auditions Richie met vocalist Katherine Kovna, a millennial who was way more of a gen xer when it came to music. In her youth, she was obsessed with New Kids On The Block.
For Dream Girl 88 that meant catchier vocal lines, greater lyrics, stronger choruses and smarter song arrangements.This set the group apart from the slew of retrowave copycat artists that currently flood Spotify playlists and the like.
The duo released a mixtape cassette in 2018, named ‘Kelly’ (after a photo of Kelly LeBrock in ‘Weird Science’) on Blew//Rose. The band has plans to release their debut LP in 2020 with tour plans to follow. Go see them when they hit your town and be prepared to move your body!

STRANGE BREED (Vancouver)
Strange Breed is a 4 piece, all queer, all female garage rock band based out of Vancouver, BC. Sounding like every 90’s riot grrrl fans’ feminist wet dream with an unexpected modern rock twist – Strange Breed has been described as a “Grittier B52’s”, or what a collaboration between Veruca Salt, Paramore and Hole would sound like.
They have had their music played on popular community/campus radio stations across the country including CBC Music & CITR 101.9 FM, and their song “Sharks” was selected as CJSF 90.1’s #1 Track of 2018. They were also Top 100 Finalists in CBC’s Searchlight 2019 Competition, listed as a producer’s pick.

“…It’s heavy subject matter made accessible through the group’s playful songwriting and boisterous personality, both in the studio and in front of a crowd." (Aly Laube, The Runner Mag)

Safe spaces, inclusivity, good times and great music is what these babes are all about.

The Rubber Boot Club
At the end of an old dirt road in the little fishing community of Chezzetcook, Nova Scotia, the original Rubber Boot Club still stands. Its history is as fun as its name and through the 50’s and 60’s it was in it’s prime. Back then, of course, the community was short on infrastructure but big on music, so the townspeople naturally gravitated to the busiest place where all the locals and musicians hung out- the moonshiner’s house- and the place naturally came to be.

Conditions resulting from frequent heavy rain and snow storms forced patrons and musicians to don their finest "rubber boots" in order to climb the hill to the “club”- and the name was born. With no shortage of plentiful liquid, the Rubber Boot quickly became a stop for gigging musicians traveling up and down the coast. Due to late night parties, it was not uncommon for one to spend the night, albeit usually sitting up in a chair, before traveling on the following day. Known for its heated parties and late night shenanigans the only complaints ever made were the lack of seating and overall temperature. Despite the known profession of its inhabitants, it is rumored that the local authorities turned a blind eye for decades as they even enjoyed attending.

The new Rubber Boot Club is our tribute to those pioneers from the other coast. While the old home still exists today, you’d be hard-pressed to see a show there anytime soon. Of course with us you won’t find any bathtub gin, or someone in the morning sleeping up in an old wooden chair, you will find a place you can see, hear, and hopefully participate in some fun live music. Thanks for reading.
