Ch ch ch changes! First of all, the the Altameda w/ Tyson Ray Borsboom & Webb show tonight has changed. Both Altameda & Webb are no longer on the bill, instead we have The Burs and Kevin Giron have joined the night, the show will still start early (7pm) but will no longer be a ticketed event (by donation). Cool? Cool.
Secondly, we will be closed between 3 and 4p. today for a staff meeting. Cool? Cool.

Oh, and we are open for Brunch at 11am. 

Respect for tradition with the sophistication to shake it off. Deadpan expression of a staunchly honest vision. Hailing from Edmonton, now Toronto-based Altameda (AL-tah-MEE-da) have evolved into a band with a bold, and unrelenting sound. It’s the culmination of experience, both musical and rawly human, that makes Altameda the band they are. Hitting festival circuits and stages across North America and Europe, they’ve toured extensively since releasing their much-celebrated debut album, Dirty Rain (2016). 
Full and resounding, cutting and dynamic, Altameda’s sophomore record, Time Hasn’t Changed You (2019), is full of all that makes life a beautiful mess. Brought along by warm bass lines, bluesy rhythms and the sweet whir of the wurlitzer, vocalist Troy Snaterse’s lyrics burn with nostalgia and present desire, made vivid by his talk-like cadences and emotional peaks. It will lift you out of your seat—then all at once send you spiralling down to the kitchen floor. 
The band’s forthcoming release is sure to be their strongest to date. Recorded in Toronto, ON by Thomas D’Arcy (Neko Case, The Sheepdogs) and mixed in Portland, OR by Tucker Martine (My Morning Jacket, Whitney, REM) the newest offering shows immense growth, both musically and personally. Grappling with family tragedy, love lost, and the countless miles in between. The record is both lyrically nuanced and compositionally lush. It is clear that the band have a bright future ahead. 


Canadian singer/songwriter Tyson Ray Borsboom creates intricate portraits of love and life in the modern world using little more than his trusted acoustic guitar for accompaniment. His inspired tales of loss and redemption make him a worthy successor to great northern poets like Leonard Cohen and Neil Young and his charismatic live performances have put him on the brink of national prominence. After spending several years honing his craft, Tyson teamed up with producer/engineer Kyle Prusky of Apex Audio to release his first EP ‘Sinner’ in 2018. Emphasizing his powerful vocal performances and stark arrangements, the seven track EP was praised by critics as “deep, dynamic, and full of emotion.” The following year saw him expanding into a full band sound as he recorded a full length album backed by some of the most accomplished players in Canada. 2020 will see the release of his debut, and introduce an international audience to the raw emotion and gritty charisma that has been steadily winning fans since his first performances. Tyson himself is more committed to his craft than ever, and is dedicated to growing as an artist and building a meaningful connection with fans and fellow musicians that will last for years to come.
