Lowest of the Low
Saturday July 13, 2019
Headstones, The Trews, Lowest of the Low and Steven Page together for one night:
“Bordercrash” as part of Funtime Presents Coors Light Concerts at Artpark series on July 13
(Lewiston, NY)— Artpark and Funtime Presents announce “Bordercrash” on July 13 will feature Headstones, The Trews, Lowest of the Low and Steven Page. “Bordercrash” joins the Funtime Presents Coors Light Concert series in the Artpark Amphitheater. Tickets on sale now.
Headstones formed in Kingston, Ontario in 1987. Hugh Dillon led members Trent Carr and Tim White into becoming a band synonymous with the real Canadian road-worn punk. Their hit singles including “Smile and Wave,” “Cemetary,” “longwaytoneverland,” “Devil’s on Fire,” and more. Currently joining Dillon, Carr and White onstage and in the studio, are Steve Carr, Rick Van Dyk and Jesse Labovitz.
With multiple radio hits including “Not Ready to Go,” “Highway of Heroes,” and “Poor Ol’ Broken Hearted Me,” The Trews are among the most prolific, electrifying, and innovative rock bands on the planet. The Nova Scotia-bred, Hamilton, ON-based combo of singer/guitarist Colin MacDonald, guitarist John-Angus MacDonald, bassist Jack Syperek, and drummer Chris Gormley — songwriters all — has won universal acclaim for their dazzling live performances.
Lowest of the Low’s Shakespeare My Butt (1991) set sales records for indie bands at the HMV Superstore and earned heavy rotation on Toronto alt-rock station CFNY with songs like “Salesmen, Cheats And Liars”, “Rosy And Grey”, “Bleed A Little While Tonight” and “Eternal Fatalist”. After some time working on different side projects and within other industries, the Low reunited in 2000. Their legend continued growing during hiatus and elevated them to genuine rock star status in certain markets (special shout-out to Buffa-LOW!). Lowest of the Low was inducted into the Canadian Indie Music Hall of Fame in 2008.
Steven Page was recently inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame with his former band, the Barenaked Ladies. He has always been a prolific writer of words and hooks, but on his latest release, Discipline: Heal Thy Self Part II (2018) they’re delivered with such a clear-eyed confidence and purposeful vision that somehow it feels like an evolution, a breakthrough and a homecoming all at once.
