White Cowbell Oklahoma brings southern-fried rock riffs to Victoria

Psychedelic jam pandemonium at V-Lounge Nov. 15

White Cowbell Oklahoma – the six-man guitar army, notorious for chainsaws and oft-lewd onstage antics, bring their unstoppable blend of heavy, southern-fried rock riffs and psychedelic jam pandemonium to the V-Lounge in Victoria on Saturday Nov. 15.

This will be part of WCO’s 15th Anniversary Tour – the first jaunt across Canada in almost five years, as the band has been touring constantly in Europe. The outlandish band is promoting the Canadian release of the deluxe, expanded, double-vinyl issue of their internationally-acclaimed Buenas Nachas album.

White Cowbell Oklahoma began in Toronto in 1999 as a large ensemble of 70’s-styled anti-scene antagonists of the music industry, sometimes attracting members of iconic Canadian acts like Sloan, Sam Roberts, Feist and the Tragically Hip to join WCO onstage (who often remained barely-noticed in the chaotic fray). Years later, the six-piece core of WCO continues to hone a unique reputation for shockingly-inspired heavy psych-riff rock albums, as well as for continuing to deliver unprecedented live shows featuring power-tools and a rotating cast of theatrical colleagues. With a massive cult following worldwide, White Cowbell Oklahoma is Canada’s most notorious rock secret.

Joining the band will be west-coast punk-Americana stalwarts Big John Bates, along with grunge revivalists Paceshifters, who are currently exploding in their native Holland.
