Sam Roberts Band will be hitting the stage at a free concert this Friday, May 12 to close out The Breakout Project in Kingston’s Springer Market Square, where Kasador – the fan favorite 5-piece indie rock band from Kingston – will open at 8 pm.
Described as bringing “the energy of a party to the stage and into the audience”, Kasador (Will Hunter, Cam Wyatt, Boris Baker, Nick Babcock, Angus Fay) has appeared on concert bills alongside Walk Off The Earth, Lights, Arkells, July Talk, Wintersleep, U.S.S, and Current Swell.
Headlining Friday’s concert, Sam Roberts Band – winners of a 2004 Best Album Juno Award for We Were Born In A Flame– garnered their own Kingston area connection when they recorded their new album Terraform at The Tragically Hip’s studio, the Bathouse, just outside Kingston.
