Toronto based indie rock/ folk rock /Canadiana collective Midnight Vesta are excited to make their first sojourn to western Canada with Kenora born, Toronto based singer songwriter Brooklyn Doran.
Their 25 date August tour stops by the Slice, Tuesday, Aug. 8.

“I took a VIA train solo as part of their artist support program. I got off at Jasper and rented a car to go to Calgary, but this is the first time the band as a whole has been to western Canada,” said frontman Peter Jarvis, en route to his cabin north of Toronto.
 Midnight Vesta  solidified their lineup with bassist Nick Posthumous in January and recorded their second CD “Seconds.”

“It’s a nice transition of who we were and where we hope to go. Because we still have some of the old members playing on it,” said Jarvis, noting band mates, drummer Robert Patterson and lead guitarist Collin Carnegie are long time friends who have been playing music together for a while, though They have undergone several line up changes since their incarnation.

“I attended  Bishop University and everybody else relocated, so none of us are actually from Toronto, but that is the centre for music,” Jarvis continued.


 They are friends with fellow Toronto roots rock band Eli and the Straw Man and became intrigued by the Slice’s name on the poster so they worked out.
“ It looked like the place to play, so we reached out to the powers that be there,” he said.

Midnight Vesta play the Slice,Tuesday, Aug. 8 at 9 with indie folk songwriter Brooklyn Doran. There is a $10 cover for the show.
