PICTURE THIS: Royal Canoe + Yip Yops @ The Hi Hat, Los Angeles 9/23/2016
Royal Canoe, hailing from Winnipeg, Manitoba, are celebrating the release of their second full-length album, Something Got Lost Between Here and the Orbit. The six-piece band led by Matt Peters features two drummers, many more keyboards, and now some orbs, all of which fuse into genius funky pop music the crowd wasn’t afraid to dance to. Coachella Valley’s Yip Yops were a suitably weird opener for Royal Canoe: they first appeared onstage in neon bodysuits, which later revealed all-white outfits. Their clothing only added to the color and rhythm of their songs.
