The Georgia Straight presents
Anti St. Patrick's Day Polka Party
The Dreadnoughts with Cornshed and Princess Die
The Dreadnoughts: Formed in 2006 over pints of cheap beer at East Vancouver's Ivanhoe Hotel, the Dreadnoughts cut their teeth in the roughest dive bars in the city. They started by opening for (and earning the praise of) celtic-punk grandfathers The Real McKenzies, and since then have never looked back. Hauling a fiddle, an accordion, a mandolin, a tin whistle, guitars and drums into every venue that would have them, they quickly became known for their powerful, chaotic live performances. In four short years they have slowly but surely joined the ranks of Canada's punk rock elite, bringing their insanely energetic and dangerous live show to the four corners of the globe.
Cornshed: "A blend of East Coast, folk and bluegrass with the tempo and driving force of a punk band makes this band a stomping, binge drinking forget about your next day of work experience. They were a great band to watch, tons of energy and for all the boys reading this, their violin player is a BABE. So next time you hear of this band playing in our wonderful city go check ‘em out! It’ll be worth it. I promise." -Sarah Goodman
