In the Urban Forest


POP Concert: Nancy Pants

The Urban Forest

Join us in the Urban Forest for a serie of eight free summer concerts in partnership with POP Montréal featuring up-and-coming groups. Come listen to a new one each week at 12:30 p.m. on Victoria Street!

This week’s concert

July 6, 2016: Nancy Pants
Nancy Pants is the loud and low-fi dirty-garage-psychedelic-punk-dream-pop project of Montreal based Ohara Hale on vocals and guitar, Adam Waito (Adam & The Amethysts) on bass and vocals, and Jeremy MacCuish (Parlovr) on drums. Sonically they evoke a bunch of awesome dogs playfully tussling on a sandy beach under a palm tree that has caught fire.

The band was conceived during a road trip to a comic book convention Hale and Waito were tabling at (both also double as illustrators/comic book makers) in the summer of 2014. Shortly after they enlisted Jeremy and one jam later they recorded their first demo ep on a cellphone. On November 20th, 2014 the band released their self-released debut album on a pink tape to much critical acclaim and at least 30 Grammys and 5 sandwiches by now. After a year of Canadian and US shows, the band premiered singles “Mother Mary” and “PS” on Consequence of Sound, “I’ve Got a Crush on You and Everybody Knows It” on Noisey, and are scheduled to put out another full release as soon as they finish it.
