New ensemble music from western Canada
Calgary, Alberta's Reuben and the Dark is a collection of five multi-instrumentalists and vocalists led by Reuben Bullock. The group makes chilling, emotive folk and soul driven by dark, introspective lyrics that explore the duality of misery and joy. Boasting a rare chemistry among members from all across western Canada, Reuben and the Dark has emerged organically from that country's independent scene on the strength of anthemic compositions that translate the language of emotion into song with haunting clarity. Their debut album is produced by the UK's Chris Hayden (Florence & the Machine) and Canada's Stephen Kozmeniuk (Madonna, Nicki Minaj, and The Game feat. Kanye West), and tonight marks their Ark debut. This is a FREE show! Nonperishables are accepted for Food Gatherers.
