As the legend goes, Hollerado grew up on the same street in Manotick and had been making music together for years before releasing their debut Record in a Bag (2009). Ever since, the band have toured prolifically, internationally, and will stop at the Bronson Centre Theatre on Friday night – one of many dates on a cross-country tour.
Their indie rock sound could be described as Weezer meets The Rolling Stones. Hollerado certainly falls into that space of catchy pop music that has a traditional rock & roll vibe. If you’ve ever seen them live, then you can probably agree that Hollerado put on a good times show.
To give you a taste, here’s the eye-catching video for “Americanarama” which drew tons of press in 2010 for its offbeat novelty:
And while we’re at it, here’s another for “Got To Lose” which, just like “Americanarama,” was directed by Hollerado’s collaborator Greg Jardin and shot in one take with one camera.
You’ve got to feel for whoever’s job it is to clean up after their video shoots, which like their concerts, tend to feature confetti cannons and blasts of streamers.
After a decade together, Hollerado have recently released a fresh new record, Born Yesterday.
Hollerado play the Bronson Centre Theatre on Friday May 12. Doors open at 7pm and the show starts with sets by PS I Love You as well as Everett Bird at 8pm. Tickets cost $20 online and are available at Vertigo Records and Compact Music locations. The show is open to all ages with 19+ bar service.
