THE HISTORY OF GUNPOWDER and THE RISING FEW take over Divan Orange on Saturday night to deliver a groundbreaking blend of order and chaos. Holy hell this is a great line up, come with your freakness showing.
Expect an shattering weekend performance.The History of Gunpowder
The History of Gunpowder is a five piece experimental rock band from Montreal. Drawing inspiration from blues, soul, jazz, funk and punk, the music exists as an ordered chaos; elevated by the band’s affiliation with Montreal’s finest burlesque dancers and performance artists, who often perform original numbers alongside the band. The live performances are unpredictable, highly visual affairs that blend genres and unconventional compositional styles, making the History of Gunpowder a thrilling alternative to the typical live music experience. And god damn are they happy to be playing with their boys The Rising Few in the new year. 2016 was tough, lets all celebrate that its good and gone, come have some whiskey friends!

The Rising Few
The Rising few are an eclectic Montreal band with a Springsteen-inflected sound of R&B-based rock-and-roll lead by Cairo born illustrator Karim Terouz.
Terouz’s commanding voice has a bit of a Tom Waits rasp and David Bowie waver to it.
‘’We’re all really recent immigrants here” sais Karim as he describes his crew as a band of young men from scattered points (Armenia, Russia, Brazil, Haiti and Quebec) that seem to converge in their shared love for melodically constructed storytelling.
A wave of infectious good feelings comes through the band’s music, trading solos that feel like good friends having a jam session.
