As you’re reading this there’s a rental 8’ softtop likely being pounded into the Tofino sand bearing the name “Gnarfunkel”. Have you ever seen this board? Probably not. Have you heard of the band that named itself after this board? Probably not. But they’re returning to the island to attempt to surf and figured they might as well play a show in Victoria on the way. Its called The Gnar Magic Tour as they’re bringing their good buds Bad Magic. They'll be joined by bedroom pop star Yung Heazy fresh off a far-reaching world tour. Starting off the night will be local darling Lindsay Dixon of Flawed Hearts and the Waiting Room. Come down for a night filled with rock and roll, bad magic and songs about the ocean.

Gnarfunkel ~ west coast rock and roll that’s gnarly to a funky extreme. This rowdy band features two animalistic lead singer/guitarists along with a tight, funky rhythm section. They’re known for their wild shows and eclectic music that features dope harmonies, rad riffs, spacey interludes and groves you just can’t help but dance to.

A bedroom pop star born overnight online after his first releases racked up millions of streams, Yung Heazy aka Jordan Heaney released his highly anticipated debut LP “Whenever You’re Around I Hate Everything Less” on June 1st 2018 and has been on the road non stop in North America, Europe, Mexico and Asia since.
Drawing comparisons to acts like Mac Demarco, The Beatles and the current wave of lofi pop acts Yung Heazy’s music melds psych and pop with endearing lyricism and harmonies.
