White Blood Cells – Tribute to The White Stripes
White Blood Cells are a husband/wife White Stripes tribute band from Saskatoon, SK. They harness the raw electricity of a live White Stripes show!
The Garrys are a trio of sisters from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada who play garage surf pop doowop. Their harmonies are dreamy and precise, and their instrumentation stays true to the likes of Dick Dale and early Beatles. Formed in the spring of 2015, TheGarrys pull a strong influence from early reverb rock ‘n roll and 1950s era vocal harmonies. If Ed Sullivan went on a date with the Shangri-Las, they would eat ice cream sandwiches and dance to the Garrys. Like father, like daughter(s).
Hermitess (Calgary, AB)
The Hermitess is the solo project of songwriter and harpist Jennifer Crighton, who comes by way of various other musical incarnations, including The Consonant C and Devonian Gardens. Stripping back the performance to a harp and a circle of women’s voices, the Hermitess is an inquisitive, contrary, wounded, wise and ever dreaming incantation.
Ezra James Phillip (Saskatoon, SK)
Ezra James Phillip is a Saskatchewan based singer-songwriter. Their soulful original tunes come from influences of Amy Winehouse, Johnny Cash and Neil Young.
Micah Jane (Saskatoon, SK)
Micah Jane started writing music when she was ten and hasn’t stopped since. Using the tumultuous years that have unsurprisingly come along with being a teenager and her knack for feeling everything just a little too strongly, she pours her soul into creating a variety of songs that say everything she can’t find the words for. This is her first gig, and she can’t wait to share a part of herself live on stage.
Everyone welcome! No one turned away at the door.
FEMFEST! would not be possible without the generous support from The Foundation Assisting Canadian Talent On Recordings (FACTOR) and SaskMusic.
COME EARLY & STAY LATE! $3.75 highballs/$6 doubles + $4.50 bottles of Boh from 9-10pm & 1-2am.
