TWRP, out of this world - STEPHEN WENTZELL

Spectators squeezed into a sold-out show late Friday night at the Seahorse Tavern, ready to jam to futuristic rock group TWRP. Originally from Halifax, the group is a self-proclaimed band from the ‘80s, the future and outer space.

The magnetic performance gave off a simultaneous nostalgic and cutting edge vibe that captivated the crowd throughout the set, guaranteeing nobody in the Seahorse was standing still.

One guitarist sported a jet pack, while the other played across the stage in a lion mask. The lead’s robotic vocals sold the out-of-this-world experience, a cherry-on-top to his intergalactic costume.

TWRP dedicated one song from its new EP Ladyworld, titled "Body Image"—a song promoting body positivity—to the crowd.

After "Body Image", came their nostalgic reflection of '90s Saturday morning cartoons, and the rock-and-roll invoking feeling of time-travelling to the past and the future all at once—consider me a fan.
