  • Submitted photo.

Known for its dreamy, decedent soundscapes and haunting vocals, Stars have been building sonic castles in sad-core style for over almost 20 years. Here, the band celebrates its impressive back catalogue (we hope "Take Me To The Riot" and "Your Ex-Lover Is Dead" make the encore set list) and its latest effort, 2017's There Is No Love in Fluorescent Light, with a Marquee Ballroom show April 13.

Tickets go on sale this Sunday at sonicconcerts.com and are $38.49 in advance and $42.99 day of show.

Fill your time waiting with the soft, lush "Ageless Beauty" (and be prepared to happily hum the melody for days):

GroundSwell Music launches Into The Night Music Festival

The rebranded fest hits Olympic Hall March 16-17 with The Flatliners and Said The Whale headlining.

Posted By on Tue, Jan 23, 2018 at 3:12 PM

Formerly billed as the GroundSwell Music Festival, Into The Night Music Fest started as a way to highlight all the musical magic happening at GroundSwell Music's synonymous label. Since 2015, it was like walking through a live, label completion CD introducing Haligonians to local gems like the alt-rock The Town Heroes and punky Like A Motorcycle.

This year, though, Into The Night's shaking it up a bit, including Ontario punks The Flatliners and indie groove machine Said the Whale to the festival lineup.

The Flatliners and Like A Motorcycle kick things off Friday, March 16 while Said the Whale and The Town Heroes keep it chill on Saturday, March 17. While more acts are TBA, Black Buffalo Records will be on site March 17 for a record fair from 11am-4pm.

Tickets are on sale now for $25 so fans better get on this great way to spend St. Patrick's Day.
