Celebrate Canada Day with two female fronted pop bands from opposite ends of the Great White North. Toronto-via-Prince Edward Island 5-piece Alvvays is best known for their breakout hit “Archie, Marry Me;” channeling a love for Teenage Fanclub into witty lyrics and sweet melodies that have a sound all their own, their latest LP, 2017’s “Antisocialites,” took home a Juno Award. They’re joined by Vancouver’s sun-drenched Flying Nun-influenced indie pop band The Courtneys, the first non-New Zealand band signed to the legendary Kiwi label responsible for the enduring “Dunedin Sound.” The all-women 3-piece serves up breezy, catchy songs about broken hearts chock full of pop culture references. Kicking off the showcase are the dreamy emo pop sound of Ellis.
