We’re excited to have Hamilton’s Young Rival playing one of our Saturday night after parties at the Elora Legion. With a sound that is both raw and hazy, dark and melodic, this band delivers an undeniably unique brand of grit-infused, wildcat rock and roll.
They’ve toured and played shows with The Sadies, Born Ruffians, King Khan and the Shrines, and Tokyo Police Club. They hearken back to a time where musicianship was primary; where a band’s ability to collaborate and play well together was posited as the goal more important than any other. And yet Young Rival offer a sound that’s both refreshing and current; delivering it with an uncompromising edge and swagger.
