"More Music This Week"


The Hoots are hitting the road to “tour the universe” (OK, Western Canada), but not before bidding its city farewell at a tour kick-off show.

The band’s first trek to B.C. begins Thursday, Sept. 1 at the Lo Pub, where The Hoots will be joined by Three Imaginary Boys, a.k.a. Sloop John B, who hails from Victoria.

Also on the bill are Zombifyus, an electronic duo from Saskatoon who shared the stage with Chad VanGaalen earlier this year, and Paper Beat Scissors (relocated Brit Tim Crabtree), who recently recorded his debut album.

The Winnipeg foursome, who lists The Brian Jonestown Massacre and The Stooges among its influences, has a sound that is reminiscent of Joy Division, with a more dynamic vocalist.

This show guarantees to be a noisemaker, with the boys describing their sound as “a vicious racket with its arms around your children.”

The group has made a strange, but economical (and sustainable) request for this show, asking showgoers to donate new or used logo-free T-shirts to be screen-printed and sold as merch along the road (alongside the self-titled EP from I’m Trying Records).

Join The Hoots along with Three Imaginary Boys, Zombifyus and Paper Beat Scissors at the Lo Pub Thursday, Sept. 1. Visit
