1 TICKET GIVEAWAY: Nu Sensae | Broken Water | Haunted Horses

Vancouver's Nu Sensae recently received some hype in the form of Out Magazine's inclusion of drummer Daniel Pitout in their 100 most eligible bachelors list. While any publicity can be a boon for a great band, sexually objectifying one of the members has a tendency to diminish the fact that they really are a fantastic noise rock trio. Luckily, their music is turning at least as many heads as the hot guy behind the kit these days. After a listen through last year's Sundowning LP (Suicide Squeeze), you may find yourself equally as aroused by the intensity of Andrea Lukic's screeching death howls as they dynamically punctuate the restrained chaos held together by her driving bass rumbles, or the angular spasms of Brody McKnight's guitar as he prods at the sonorous mess like a little boy with a stick.

Supporting them this Sunday at Chop Suey will be Olympia's Broken Water, whose darkly lush psych-influenced sound harkens back to something almost forgotten, but gladly reinstated. In fact, both bands could be described as an updated version of what the best underground PNW bands were working to achieve twenty years ago, while their more conventional counterparts were getting sucked into the maelstrom of industry shenanigans.

Local boys Haunted Horses are starting off the night, and honestly, bills don't come more perfectly fit. Fans of any of these bands will undoubtedly love the others, and all are worthy of whatever random hugs and kisses lavished upon them afterwards. Oh, and hey, look at this! We're giving away tickets!

***To enter the drawing for a pair of tickets simply send an email to with "Nu Sensae" as the subject and your full name in the body. Winners will be drawn Saturday at 5pm, so do it, do it now. Good luck!***
