Dance music at Cactus Jack's tonight
Young Empires, a band critics have compared in sound to The Killers, Arcade Fire and Yeasayer, will be in Kamloops today (Oct. 2) with Dragonette for a show at Cactus Jack’s Saloon, 130 Fifth Ave.
The three-piece band uses synthesizer tones to supplement its guitar and bass to create dance music that feature some soulful guitar licks.
Some of their music has been incorporated into the fashion industry, with Glory of the Night being used by French fashion/music label Kitsune Maison 10 and Against the Wall used in a fashion video.
The band has performed in Europe, the U.S. and across Canada, sharing the stage with acts including Jamiroquai and Chromeo.
Its live performance at the NXNE Festival was named in the top 10 out of more than 500 bands.
Also performing will be Data Romance.
Dragonette is an electronic-music band from Toronto touring to promote its third studio album, Bodyparts, which was released two weeks ago.
Tickets are $15 in advance at Mountain High Pizza, 314 Victoria St., or $20 at the door.
