Elliott BROOD (Venables Theatre)
June 9 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$30.00
Venables Theatre presents Elliott BROOD’s 2022 Out and About Tour. Elliott BROOD is a three-piece Folk Rock Alt Country band based in Hamilton, Ontario. Their brand of fuzzed-up roots music has always made for a captivating, and frenetic live performance. That energy has always translated onto the band’s five previous critically acclaimed records. In 2013 the band won a Juno Award for their World War One inspired album “Days Into Years”. Over the course of their career, they have been nominated for a total of five Juno awards. In 2009 they were shortlisted for the prestigious Polaris Music Prize and in 2012 the band found themselves nominated for a Genie Award for their original song “West End Sky” that was featured in the film “Grown Up Movie Star”. Their style has been called everything from ‘blackgrass’ to ‘death country,’ but those descriptions don’t capture the transcendent heights of their unique approach to roots music.
Elliott BROOD continue to expand their sound beyond their acoustic origins. The bands seventh album “Keeper”, created during mini writing and recording retreats while hopping across the summer festival circuit, marks another satisfying chapter in the ongoing evolution of Elliott BROOD. From the Polaris Music Prize short listed breakout album Mountain Meadows to the JUNO Award winning “Days Into Years”, the well-traveled trio of Mark Sasso, Casey Laforet and Stephen Pitkin have created a body of work that is at once meticulous and boisterous, substantial and entertaining.
