This year at Rifflandia, Victoria is privileged to welcome Chad VanGaalen. Along with his musicianship, the notoriously creative multi-instrumentalist is known for spending his time rewiring old Casio keyboards, and illustrating music videos for bands such as Timber Timbre. His live performances often include a universe of DIY effects pedals, wooden analogue monosynths, and members of the Calgarian post-punk group Viet Cong. Naturally, us at Smokes are thrilled to experience his haunting, psychedelic folk rock this coming Friday. September 18th. Alix Goolden. 11:30pm. BYO LSD. See you there.
