NMM Presents … HONHEEHONHEE / kickupaFuss / One Way State (our First Birthday Bash!) JUNE 25 at New City

by New Music Michael on June 2 2011

The New Music Michael blog is quickly approaching our first birthday, and to celebrate in grand style, we’re pleased to present Montreal’s HONHEEHONHEE in concert on Saturday, June 25 at New City; also on the bill will be Edmonton’s own kickupaFuss; and One Way State. Here’s the details:


Headliners Honheehonhee are part of an incredible indie scene in Montreal, and their combination of synthesizers, “smashing drums, and raucous guitars” are sure to create a climax to the evening the likes of which we don’t often see in Edmonton. I previously posted an article on the band earlier in May, and the band is well on their way to indie stardom, with scheduled appearances at NXNE in Toronto, and Sled Island in Calgary, before playing Edmonton. You can stream their video for “We Only Go” below.


kickupaFuss is playing the middle slot on the bill, and we’re incredibly lucky to have them as well. A number of the members have been in other bands over the years, and the resulting sound is a beautifully orchestrated fusion of rock’n'roll with “synthy electronic” into the “grimiest of rock”. This band has come a long way in a short time, to the point where they’ll be playing the main stage of Boonstock the Thursday following our show.


One Way State will open the night in grand style, featuring their frenetic live show. Regular readers will recall I’ve previously blogged about One Way State as well, saying I was “incredibly impressed”, and how they’ve combined “catchy lyrics and guitar hooks (that) interplay with a beautifully low base line”. When the opportunity to put this show came up, they were one of the first bands I thought of (check out their myspace site).
