On Thursday, April 9, Philadelphia’s Dave Hause headlines the Hindenburg with support from Ottawa singer-songwriter Kalle Mattson and Dan Garrison of Vancouver’s Corps.

Dave Hause has made his name with Philly hardcore/punk bands the Loved Ones and Paint It Black, but he’s also now two solo records deep in his career. From a working class perspective on his latest album, 2013’s Devour, he ruminates on the erosion of the American Dream and just how different the fantasy is from most people’s reality.

Kalle Mattson returns to Vancouver with his Polaris Prize-nominated album, Someday, the Moon Will Be Gold (2014). The Polaris-nod is just one accolade the young musician has earned over the last half-decade, along with SOCAN’s Songwriter of the Year and Northern Ontario Music Award’s Album of the Year.

Dan Garrison of Vancouver’s polished but no less fiery Corps rounds out the reputable lineup. As for whether he’ll be busting out original solo material or playing stripped Corps songs, there’s only one way to find out.

Tickets are $12 online or $15 at the door.
