WESTWARD MUSIC FESTIVAL:
MRG Concerts presents Westward Music Festival, which features some of the today’s most influential music acts performing live at multiple venues in downtown Vancouver from September 14 to 17.
Festival passes and individual tickets are available now via Ticketfly.
Celebrating the spirit of Vancouver and it’s world-class music scene, the festival is comprised of 15 live music events with multi-genre line-ups all taking place within a 2.5km radius of one another. Participating venues include the Vogue Theatre (open to all ages), Biltmore Cabaret, The Imperial Theatre and Fox Cabaret, with a two-day outdoor event at the Red Truck Brewery back lot.
D.D Dumbo’s output stretches back to 2013, when he released his self-recorded debut EP, Tropical Oceans. Led by the spooky strut of the title-track, the lo-fi four song-set of blues-laced, deconstructed pop, announced Perry as an exciting newcomer fluent in a language all his own. People took notice.
Performing solo with a 12-string electric guitar, two drums and a bunch of effect pedals, D.D Dumbo made an impression at the 2013 SXSW Music conference. In the following 12 months he was invited to support the likes of Warpaint, Tune-Yards, St Vincent, Jungle, Iron & Wine, and do live sessions for NPR, Daytrotter and BBC Radio 1. Soon after D.D Dumbo signed to 4AD, and in 2014 he toured the UK for the first time, supporting both Daughter and Tame Impala. He played Splendour in the Grass in Australia, and returned to Europe for a handful of dates (including a slot at Pitchfork Paris), as well as a debut tour of the US to much acclaim.
