Our Guide to Pre-Pop Fest 2014

Festival season isn’t over just yet — this year’s PrePop Festival is packed with bands that you need to see.

Starting Monday, Oct. 20 at The Capital, Austra will kick things off with an indie-electro session followed by Petra Glynt and the up-and-coming group from New Brunswick, Vogue Dots.

Tuesday night features PS I Love You from Kingston, as well as Cousins, who just recently finished playing shows in Toronto, and Solids, a rock duo from Montreal.

Wednesday has a solid lineup with indie rock band The Wooden Sky, singer/songwriter Kalle Mattson and singer Gianna Lauren.

Thursday has Saskatoon’s One Bad Son hitting the stage with the popular alt-rock band Teenage Kicks and rock band Brothers. For Teenage Kicks, it will be their second Thursday in a row at The Capital, as they opened for Gob and The Flatliners on the 16th.

Friday night plays host to the Gay Nineties, an alt-rock band that is on fire recently with their single “Letterman.” The song has been getting airtime on MuchMusic and should be a fun song to see live.

Saturday night wraps up the festival with a bang by featuring Glory Glory, a group from Halifax. They have a unique indie sound with new wave influence, which really has to be heard in person to be fully experienced.

Their latest album featured Grammy-nominated mix engineer Justin Gerrish who previously worked with indie golden child Vampire Weekend and The Strokes.

Saturday also has Nuages playing at The Capital, an indie band from right here in Fredericton.

The lineup has bands stopping in Fredericton on their way to Halifax’s Pop Explosion, which happens from Oct. 21 to Oct. 25.

Tickets and passes for the 2014 PrePop festival presented by Picaroons can be purchased on The Capital website, or at a kiosk located at Issac’s Way.
