ACTORS Live at Art Sanctuary with Broken Nails & Palm Ghosts

“Vancouver’s brilliant post-punk and new-wave quartet ACTORS continue their flair for sonic cinematics in the video for their latest track ‘Face Meets Glass’... The atmosphere quivers with singer Jason Corbett’s crooning reverb augmented by shivering guitars and stark synths.”
POST-PUNK.COM

Join us on Sunday, March 27th for an incredibly exciting night with ACTORS. We feel incredibly fortunate to host a band of this caliber and will call this a "do not miss" show. If you are familiar, you already know. If not, please take a minute to explore their website and enjoy a few of their excellent videos and music.
