Weird Lines hit Fredericton next week with a show at ReNeu Boutique playing alongside David in the Dark, Jon McKiel and Vancouver’s Adrian Teacher and the Subs. This will be the final show in a 13 date tour that began in Hamilton, Ontario on July 16.

Weird Lines shave been described by some as a bit of an east coast super group with a lineup that includes Julie Doiron, Jon McKiel, CL McLaughlan and members of several Killer Haze associated acts. And like their name suggests, Weird Lines bend boundaries that define genres, choosing to follow ideas in whatever direction they carry. On their self-titled debut album (Sappy Futures), the band dabble in the sounds of bedroom folk, doo-wop, and early rock and roll, magnified by the addition of Chris Meaney’s saxophone and surrounded by low-fi comfort. Band member Jon McKiel will also deliver a solo set as part of the evening’s lineup.

Adrian Teacher (Apollo Ghost/COOL TV) is fronting his own band with drummer Amanda Pezzutto and bassist Robbie Nall. Adrian Teacher and the Subs are currently on the road in support of Terminal City, the band’s debut album released in May on You’ve Changed Records.  In true Adrian Teacher fashion, this latest project is full of clean tones, up-tempo grooves and dance-floor-ready jams guaranteed to keep you moving, get you sweaty, and make you wonder why you don’t already own everything he’s ever released. Maybe you already do?

Rounding out the bill is Fredericton’s own David In The Dark, fresh off a handful of dates opening for Matt Mays on his recent jaunt through the Maritimes. And if you haven’t heard the band’s debut full-length, Fire, released in May of this year, you best get on top of things.

All in all, this has the makings of a wonderful mid-summer night on the town, even if it is a Monday night.
