The Aquarium & Flower Envy Collective Presents:
Pears (Fat Wreck Chords) returns to Fargo for the first time in years.
PEARS hails from New Orleans, LA, and isn’t a band that half-asses anything. In just a few years, the band has released two full-length albums–2014’s Go To Prison (re-released by Fat in 2015), 2016’s Green Star, 2017 split 12″ with Direct Hit–toured relentlessly, and found ways to make raging hardcore punk that’s both poppy and just a little humorous.
Touring Support from Single Mothers
“The start-stop dynamics and serrated vocal hooks of London, Ontario’s Single Mothers instantly remind one of the early 2000’s, when At the Drive-In, the Blood Brothers, and other sorely missed bands combined math-rock, emo and hardcore into something so scarily close to pop, they couldn’t help but implode.” – Pitchfork
With Sparrows & Baltic to Boardwalk
Sparrows is a three-piece post hardcore band from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Formed in 2010 the band consists of vocalist Dan Thomson, guitarist Alex Pley, and drummer Jon Busby. In March 2015 the group was named one of Alternative Press magazine’s “100 Bands You Need to Know”
Baltic to Boardwalk native to Fargo-Moorhead have been around since 2009, blending a unique style of post/melodic hardcore with elements of raw punk and screamo. The band doesn’t seem to be stopping 10 years in with plans for a new EP as well as tour plans for 2020.
