Sometimes, for mysterious reasons, a city will provide a nurturing environment that will spawn a stunning amount of quality bands that seems hard to believe if you start to think about it. For example, the mass of incredible music that came out of the tiny town of Olympia, Washington in the ‘90s. Sackville, New Brunswick is kind of like that too. Here are three bands that came out of Sackville recently that are worth taking a listen to.
Astral Gunk is a kind of supergroup of great Sackville musicians that play some freaky high-octane punky tunes that are sure to get you fired up. Live, they’re quite a sight also. They swap instruments like it’s nothing and provide a whole lot of energy.
