Today we're throwing it back to our Bands + Brews concert with Arkells
for two reasons: one, we are ready for summer and two, these guys have been killing it
in the music scene lately. Back to the former reason, tomorrow it will be 75 degrees in New York, which means I'm one step closer to wearing the new pair of strappy sandals I just bought, and more importantly, it means Baeble is one step closer to hosting another summer concert (keep your eyes peeled for that!). Everyone likes drinking beer while enjoying good live music outside.
And that latter reason - uh, yeah,
Canadian rock band Arkells have been making a ton of waves since we last saw them. Most recently, they gave a nearly perfect performance at the 2018 Juno Awards. They've also released two horn-filled pump up anthems, "Knocking At The Door" and "People's Champ
," which will appear on their forthcoming fifth album set to be released later this year. When they stopped by Industry City two summers ago though, they wowed us with live renditions of "Come To Light," "Leather Jacket," plus more. Check it out for yourself above and get amped for both summer and new music from Arkells!
