No Joy packs Pressed in a sold-out show (photo essay)

by

Montreal-based No Joy made a recent stop in Ottawa in support of their new EP Creep, which is to be released Feb 24th. The band’s wall of sound washed over the packed house, as they delivered their shoegaze style to the faithful crammed into Pressed. The band let the music do their talking as they moved through the setlist without banter.

After a couple shows in Eastern Canada the band now heads south to share their music with our American neighbours (and maybe to escape this weather). The tour heads to these cities next; is one of them near you?

Feb-21 – Boston, MA – Great Scott
Feb-22 – Providence, RI – Columbus Theater
Feb-23 – Baltimore, MD – Metro Gallery
Feb-24 – Philadelphia, PA – Kung Fu Necktie
Feb-25 – Brooklyn, NY – Shea Stadium
March 16-17 – Austin, TX – SXSW
March 18 – Dallas, TX – Not So Fun Weekend Festival
March 19 – San Antonio, TX – Burger Records Hangover Festival
March 20 – Hot Springs, AR – The Valley of the Vapors Festival

Like in a previous visit to Ottawa, Destroy Clocks opened up the show, their styles meshing together in a complimentary way. The band introduced their new drummer during their set, which included some original material and a Fugazi cover.
