IMU presents FOREST AND THE FEMME CHARITY CONCERT w/ MARNIE MAINS, C.O.L.T., HELLO DYNAMO, COLOURSURROUND & CORNSHED
Forest And The Femme is committed to addressing the ongoing gap in services for vulnerable, marginalized, high risk women living in the Downtown Eastside, giving them the chance to achieve a sense of accomplishment and empowerment through the benefits of nature and outdoor opportunities.
CORNSHED - A blend of East Coast, folk, and bluegrass with the tempo and driving force of a punk band makes Vancouver's Cornshed a stomping, rabble-rousing, "forget about your next day of work" experience. Back to the roots is the simplest way to put it, and the boot stompin tunes these guys play get everyone dancing. With an undeniable fire burning in their belly, Cornshed are about to bring the dead back to life.
MARNIE MAINS - When her boyfriend refused to teach her to play guitar, Marnie Mains broke up with him, took his guitar and taught herself! Having attracted audiences from London, England to Las Vegas, she's graced stages such as Toronto's Opera House, El Macombo and The Reverb. Marnie's stomping ground is the human condition and her lyrics are witty and thought provoking while her music is angelic and captivating, prompting Justin Timberlake's producer to praise her as "mesmerizing, profound and a beautiful singer".
COLOURSURROUND - Formed by three strung-out corporate dudes in suits who desperately needed an outlet, Coloursurround creates escapist music inspired by otherworldly bands such as Pink Floyd, Stone Roses, My Bloody Valentine, Smashing Pumpkins, Dandy Warhols, Radiohead and Jeff Buckley.
HELLO DYNAMO is an energetic four-piece band with a unique repertoire that's a unified blend of R&B, Jazz and Hip Hop. Their music flows seamlessly from laid back grooves and ambient textures to driving choruses and highly syncopated rhythms that light up the dance floor. Subtle but beautiful, the vocal melodies are never lost in-between.
