“Will you be my PET? Can I be your PET?” With a consistently tight and freaky live sound, blue-haired singer Laura Kempton will mesmerize you, while guitar-players Marcus Tracey and Emma LeBlanc weave in and out of your subconscious mind. Synth-y riffs and guitar pedals to the max – yet intimate and accessible. The sounds in treble-land float assertively over the grooves of drums and bass.
Named after the hippie Baja hoodie; this band formed in 2015 with the goal of creating pop-y and psychedelia-infused rock. Current and former music students, they draw from an arsenal of influences, with experience in genres like gospel, funk, and world music. In the Drug Rug sound, you hear the focused and cohesive energy of a band that knows what they want to be.
Recent activities of The Drug Rugs include winning Sliver in Best of Halifax 2017 Readers Choice Awards, winning a Battle of The Bands at the Pavilion in Halifax, and sharing stages with bands such as Scientists of Sound, The Town Heroes, and Walrus
