Ottawa’s The Balconies are performing at The Golden Taps on Aug. 20.

The Balconies bringing 80s flair to Golden

The Balconies are back in Canada after a tour in Europe, and are coming to Golden for a show at The Golden Taps on Aug. 20.

The Balconies are back in Canada after a tour in Europe, and are coming to Golden for a show at The Golden Taps on Aug. 20.

In the blink of an eye, the group (a four-piece rock band from Ottawa) has grown from a humble indie pop band to a leather-clad four-headed rock and roll monster, punctuated by 80s hair metal flair.

The Balconies continue to steamroll unsuspecting crowds throughout Europe and continental North America – doing it heavier and sweatier each and every night (go ahead, try to outdo lead singer Jacquie’s deep rock lunges, red lips, and swirling dark hair).

They’ve shared the stage with Cold War Kids, Mother Mother, Devo, Sloan, Stars, Wide Mouth Mason, Big Sugar, Tokyo Police Club, Puddle of Mudd, and the Sam Roberts Band. But The Balconies aren’t satisfied.

The Balconies have taken Europe by storm; touring with Rival Sons, playing packed showcases at MIDEM in Cannes, Liverpool Sound City (UK), and Brighton’s The Great Escape as well as playing North American dates at South By Southwest, Canadian Music Week, and North By Northeast.

With a new full-length album on the horizon recorded with legendary producer Arnold Lanni (Finger Eleven, Simple Plan, Our Lady Peace), and a summer packed full of festival dates, the future looks bright.

So, if you fancy a riot of gargantuan rhythmic proportions, swing by. Oh, and be prepared – this will get loud.
