HPX 2010:: Pop Winds

HPX 2010

As you well know, the 2010 Halifax Pop Explosion is rapidly approaching, and if there’s one question I’m not repeatedly asked at this time of year, it’s “Shane, I’m desperate to get my indie dance rock on during this year’s HPX, what show should I hit?”. Were I actually to be asked this question, I’d have an answer this year: the Friday night show at the Coconut Grove featuring Montreal’s Pop Winds and three Halifax bands locally renowned for their dance floor packing prowess: Tupper Ware Remix Party, Windom Earle, and Ruby Jean and the Thoughtful Bees.

 

The Pop Winds have been mentioned on the hill previously, with the Ack giving them the Sunday AM coffee treatment earlier this year. Reading the Ack’s descriptor, and listening to a couple songs from their latest release, The Turquoise, makes me think their live set should be rather interesting. And that’s to say nothing of the dancefloor mayhem that will be caused by Tupper Ware Remix Party and Windom Earle, before evening headliners, the Rebekah Higgs-helmed Ruby Jean and the Thoughtful Bees wreck shop in that nattily-clad way of theirs.

 

So then, you’re hitting HPX and looking to turn things up a notch on Friday night? Coconut Grove will be an excellent choice.
