Slam Dunk

#sxsw #SlamDunk


In the summer of 2009, a group of five Victoria-based friends set out to form a band that would incorporate everything they adored in a classic pop hook, but invoked with something more cathartic, brash and chaotic. That band would later be known as one of the West Coast's most revered live acts, Slam Dunk. Described as the “E-Street band on Crack”, Slam Dunk's live shows command people to lose their shiiiit to a blend of shout-along choruses and twisting fuzz-guitar melodies. With the help of Vancouver producer Colin Stewart (Black Mountain, New Pornographers), Slam Dunk were able to capture the energy of their live performances on the recent full-length album, The Shivers.
