Tonight in Vancouver

Boompa presents Matt Sharp and Goldenboy at the Media Club

MATT SHARP – Ten years after the landmark release of Weezer‘s debut “Blue Album”, this charismatic ex-Weezer bassist and The Rentals frontman delivers Boompa Records, a bold and sensuous collection of beautifully understated songs that create an almost spiritual feeling for the listener. Backed by sparse musical accompaniment, Matt creates an atmosphere of extreme intimacy and honesty punctuated with potent silences, eerie aural textures and deeply personal lyrics.

“Matt Sharp throws himself wholeheartedly into the terrain of bleached-out Americana. His self-titled full-length debut is a haunted set of lazy alt-country tunes recorded in the lonely wilds of Tennessee. Fragile, intimate and heartfelt. 4/5” – Now


with very special guests:
GOLDEN BOY – Retro-poetic, quirky and haunting, this garage pop trio hails from the micro infamous Diamond Bar of Southern California. Goldenboy travels in a lush melancholy world that promises a return to innocence, even if lost again.Their new album “Blue Swan Orchestra” includes a guest appearance by the late Elliott Smith and features drummer/keyboardist Bryan Bos (previously of Moonwash) and bassist/ keyboardist David McConnell (mix engineer/producer – Elliott Smith, Wilco, Folk Implosion). –
