Yes this is a real thing.
On May 20th we throw a night dedicated to the greatest effin rock band from north of the border. We'll have fun games and alllll your favorite Kroeger.
Long before Starbucks became an unlikely force in the music industry, it impressed itself upon pop music by employing a bass player named Mike Kroeger. «Here's your nickel back,» Kroeger would tell his customers when dispensing change for cups of coffee; thus the name of his post-grunge outfit, which has sold more than 25 million albums worldwide.
Originally featuring three Kroeger brothers — singer-guitarist Chad, bassist Mike and drummer Brandon — as well as second guitarist Ryan Peake, Nickelback formed in the small town of Hanna, Alberta, though they have since relocated to Vancouver, British Columbia. After self-releasing a pair of albums (the second of which, Curb, was later rereleased) in 1996, they signed to Roadrunner in 1999 and put out The State, which did moderately well. Two years later, however, was a different story. Silver Side Up (Number Two, 2001) was a monster hit, thanks in large part to the hit «How You Remind Me» (Number One, 2001), a song whose combination of Nirvana dynamics and early Pearl Jam sludge made it official that early-Nineties alt-rock was the new classic rock. «Too Bad» became a minor hit as well, hitting Number 42 in 2002.
MAY 20th we relive all the magic at DARK HORSE, StudioBar's Nickelback dance party and sing a long.
