The Cannisters 

DIY-punk trio isn’t afraid of serious folk nostalgia.


Last summer, Daniel St. Dan brought his songs from the country to a punk warehouse in Dartmouth. With Dylan Jewers (drums) and Jesse Webber (guitar), The Cannisters recorded tracks that are "somewhere between extreme noise and good old-fashioned folk," says St. Dan. Playing over 20 shows at Jacob's Lounge since then (a unique opportunity for new bands to fill out, adds Jewers), The Cannisters' sets can be acoustic or electric but they're always magnetic. Grainy, raw and real, the trio brings DIY-punk to the forefront with serious folk nostalgia. "We're not afraid of a little sugar, put it that way," St. Dan says.
