As part of JunoFest, two great Toronto bands Young Empires and Bravestation will be playing a joint show this Friday at The Drake Hotel. If you haven’t already checked both bands out live, you should definitely cancel all your plans and run to watch them play this super intimate venue.
We fell in love with Bravestation in the heat of last summer just before their EP release party when they dropped their stellar five-track album. Since then they’ve made headway playing tons of shows and are even about to take off to the UK to play Evolution Festival. We’re not the hugest fans of Young Empires as a whole, but they do make really fantastic music, that was even included on the latest Kitsuné Maison Compilation Fireworks Issue, so we’ll give them props for that.
Get all the details below for Friday’s show and if you’re planning on checking out all that JunoFest has to offer, the wristbands are only $30 bucks, which isn’t bad considering it gives you access at 20 venues and over a hundred different bands.
