A few months back England’s psychedelic poster-boys made their debut performance in Vancouver in support of their first full length Sun Structures. Since then the band has been touring furiously, with dates all over North America, Asia and Europe – speaking to their pervasive popularity and showman-stamina. Last time they were in town the boys from Kettering, UK jammed East Van’s Biltmore Cabaret to the tits on a Tuesday night. We were there revelling with the rest of the them, blown away at one of the most appealing acts to pop out in the alternative scene in recent memory. This time around Temples will be coming of age in the Vancouver realm, playing a Friday night show at the Commodore Ballroom. We expect bigger and better visuals, longer set times and even more outrageous hair.
If you were unable to attend last time around, tickets are still available through Ticketmaster, touring with Temples is Portland outfit Wampire. This duo is both cheeky and eclectic, combining nice harmonies and effected vocals, with bluesy sax and bass notes. Together these two acts glue together numerous decades in music, and exemplify the best in fresh, playful and innovative music today. All in all, Friday is poised to be the best night this month to sway and shimmy. Keep and eye out for our full review of Temples, and Wampire from the Commodore this weekend. Now go out and buy that vintage flower vest and start starching out your skinniest black jeans. See you Friday.
