One last hurrah to rock the end of summer will be held at Haley’s Lounge on Friday, Aug. 24. The lineup includes Rain Over St. Ambrose; Three Sheet (2011 Music Nova Scotia Entertainers of the Year); and a DJ set from Till Def Do Us Party.
The show starts at 10 p.m., with a $5 cover charge.
Rain Over St. Ambrose is fresh off some gigs at Liverpool's Privateer Days and a hometown show where they opened for Joel Plaskett. The band's debut full-length album is nearing completion and will be out this fall.
Those who attended the gala show at the end of the Music Nova Scotia Week last November at the Mariners Centre will remember the electrifying performance delivered by Three Sheet.
The band had its international tour this year - a five-date tour in Taiwan. Band member Matt Kliffer described one of the highlights of the Hello! Taiwan tour.
“We toured from the northernmost point (Tapei City) all the way down to the southernmost tip to a place called Kenting, where the biggest music festival in the country, Spring Scream, takes place,” he said by email.
“Spring Scream is like Evolve on steroids. We got to play this festival two nights in a row and it was here we enjoyed our largest crowds, upwards of 2,000 people going insane.”
The band is working on its third album. Kliffer says members are constantly driven to improve.
“We want to get better every day, every time we play, every time we record. We feel like the best we have to offer is yet to come and we are very excited to get to work,” he said.
He says the band has enjoyed playing in Yarmouth in the past and that the crowds were among the best in Canada.
“We can’t wait to get back,” he said.
