Jock Tears play perky pop punk from Vancouver

The Owl Acoustic Lounge celebrated Pride week with several pride themed shows.

 A highlight was Wednesday night, June 21 when they hosted Vancouver female fuelled pop punk band Jock Tears.

 They played a short, sweet  immediately appealing set of catchy, sassy, supremely upbeat, feminist themed pop punk music , singing about  don’t call me darling, bad boys and Kitts Beach which reminded me of a more punk rock Bangles and especially ’90s Vancouver pop punk darlings cub.
One enthusiastic fan even tried crowd surfing on top of a half dozen dancing fans. Brunette lead singer, Lauren Ray, sporting glowing shoes, with lights flashing,  jumped into the middle of the enthusiastic audience and sang beautifully.

Fellow Vancouverites Supermoon barely looked old enough to be in a bar. They played more ambient, introspective indie rock featuring chiming guitars, gorgeous vocal harmonies, three different lead vocalists and plenty of instrument switching.
I missed an opening set from local synth pop band  Open Channels.
