Hill and the Sky Heroes Join Toronto Queer Beer Festival Lineup, July 26, 2012

July 20, 2012 in Uncategorized by Audio Blood


Hill & the Sky Heroes are adding one more show to their busy summer schedule. On Thursday, July 26th, the band will take part in Toronto’s Queer Beer Festival at Bandshell Park on the Canadian National Exhibition grounds. The stellar lineup for the day will also feature Uh Huh Her, Men and The Cliks. This year marks the festival’s eighteenth year in celebration of pride, great music, and of course, great beer.

The new date is another welcome addition to compliment the band’s summer-long residency at the Drake Hotel in Toronto. Although Hill & the Sky Heroes have just released their debut album, 11:11, their unique genre-bending style and commanding stage presence has been garnering attention from far and wide. Since its June release, 11:11 has been climbing campus radio charts across Canada. The album’s fusion of old Hollywood sci-fi sound effects and modern-day California surf rock is both eccentric and pop-sensible. Dramatic and playful all at once, the only appropriate name to call its signature genre is “alien surf rock”.

Be sure to catch Hill & the Sky Heroes at Toronto’s Queer Beer Festival next Thursday, July 26th, or at one of their residency dates at the Drake Hotel every Tuesday night from now until the end of August.
