A preview of Bluebloods’ yet-to-be-released ‘Make it Rain’ EP. Held at Forth Cafe in the Exchange District.
The album is presented with live dance presentation by Madison Dueck, vocals by Courtney Devon, projected music videos by Bluebloods, a photo exhibition by Jen Doerksen, and last (but certainly not least) complimentary refreshments.
Make It Rain blends classical, R&B, and EDM over six songs. Lush, acoustic harmonies cradle elegant melodies, punctuated by 808 bass and bursts of electro zaniness. Its line-up of guest singers reads like a who’s who of the local indie scene, including Heather Thomas (ATLAAS), Roman Clarke (Middle Coast), Courtney Devon (Amadians) and Elessar Thiessen. Its imagery and lyrics are peppered with references to the CCF, prairie socialism, and farming communities like Steinbach. Make it Rain is scheduled for official release in fall 2019; join our private event and hear the early version! Maximum capacity is 100.
