Grolsch Open House

Grolsch Open House | Lowell

Lowell is a Canadian singer and songwriter. Her music, an odyssey from electro-pop to indie rock, from fierce to sultry, is coupled with honest and empowering lyrics that aim to challenge and inform, on subjects ranging from sexuality to abuse to women’s rights. And while her lyrical content is intelligent and heartfelt, it doesn’t mean it isn’t undeniably catchy and danceable. Her newest album, We Loved Her Dearly, is due out on Arts and Crafts on September 16th.

Grolsch Open House | Reuben and the Dark

Calgary's Reuben and the Dark is a collection of five multi-instrumentalists and vocalists led by Reuben Bullock. The group, known for its haunting folk anthems and introspective lyrics, explores the duality of human emotion—from dark and brooding to positively euphoric. Their soaring vocal harmonies, whether experienced on record or live, always have a lasting effect on their audiences.
