Ashley Hundred and Makiisma play introspective indie rock

E-mail Print PDF

I always seem to miss the Ashley Hundred, so I was pleased to catch their Friday, April 20 set at the Owl Acoustic Lounge. Though the Calgary indie rock band wield a multitude of instruments, their sets seem to pass amazingly quickly.

The Ashley Hundred returned to Lethbridge, April 20. Photo by Richard AmeryThey sang pleasing multi-part vocal harmonies and had a lot of ambient sounds and catchy folk pop stylings. The sextet reminded me of Jessie and the Dandelions and many popular Vancouver based indie pop bands, though the banjo and steel guitar were a nice touch, adding extra layers of ambience.

 Megan brown plays her own songs as Makiisma at the Owl, April 20. Photo by Richard AmeryI caught most of an opening set  from Makiisma aka Megan Brown, bassist Steve Martin, drummer Keenan Pezderic and keyboardist T.J Waltho.

 They played a heavier, more indie rock set than usual rather than more introspective indie pop.

 It is always a pleasure to hear Megan Brown play her own songs and fronting her own band.

She got to show her more sultry, jazzy side as well as her more exotic side we know from her work with the Junkman’s Quire.
