Blocktreat & Apples, live at the Limelight: Friday, November 2 2018

Tickets on sale now, right here

Friday November 2, Blocktreat with special guests Apples rock the Limelight Theatre, downtown Williams Lake. Blocktreat returns to the Cariboo, bringing a suitcase of new albums and a bunch of new songs to keep the dance floor moving. The four piece (Brandon Hoffman, Daniel Ruiz, Jess Rampling and special guest Lyndon Froese) meld electronic grooves with glitchy / glitzy guitar riffs and a thick blanket of lo-fi nostalgia. Blocktreat's new album After Dark was recorded in a tiny cabin in the Cariboo hills between 2017 and 2018, and the crew has been refining the live arrangements since February 2018. They can't wait to party with the good people of Williams Lake. Apples is the musical moniker of singer and guitarist Jessica Rampling. Jess divides her time between Haida Gwaii and Vancouver. In Van, she plays in experimental psych band Heavy Days, and all writes music that, ideally, you can shout along to. With members of Blocktreat backing her up, Apples plays a collection of grunge-folk songs, with songwriting akin to Wilco or the Weather Station. Tickets are on sale now (see the paypal button above). Will-call only -- simply bring the receipt that is emailed to you, along with photo ID to the theatre. See you in November!
