Toronto veteran indie rockers Broken Social Scene returned from a seven-year hiatus in 2017 with their triumphant and acclaimed record, “Hug Of Thunder.” Earlier this year, they reminded us that they’re here to stay with the release of the optimistic and life-affirming “Let’s Try The After” EP series. The two EPs, like “Hug Of Thunder,” champion for togetherness and transcendence in a chaotic and divided world.
The rotating-cast ensemble, which ranges from six to 19 members, combines extended instrumentation with moving rock songs in a sonic palette which they describe as “baroque pop.”
Broken Social Scene will perform at Portland’s Oregon Zoo Amphitheater on Saturday, July 29.
Joining them are Portland’s The Helio Sequence, celebrating the 10-year anniversary of their genre-defying debut “Keep Your Eyes Ahead.” You could win a pair of tickets to the show. Here’s how to enter:
