RainCity plus Chase The Bear
Saturday, May 6 @ The Waverley Hotel
“Their Atomic Dance Phunk-Rock vibes had the crowd moving and grooving in sequence from start to finish. It’s safe to say that the band has mastered the art of commanding a room.”
Described as “an acid trip struck by lightning” and “the rebellious daughter of goth and ska”, Raincity is a Vancouver-based Rage-Funk band fronted by women on saxophone and vocals. The five members of Raincity combine their eclectic influences including Moon Hooch, Amy Winehouse, Queen, and Rage Against the Machine. Their live shows are unique and explosive. They have performed over 350 shows since their inception opening for acts such as Too Many Zooz, Bif Naked, Lucky Chops, Five Alarm Funk on stages such as the Commodore Ballroom and The Bill Reid Amphitheater.
