Parades Against Parades

Powered by Audioscrobbler™Parades Against Parades was the naïve but loveable bastard child of Saskatoon's punk rock and indie scenes. After a shaky birth in a church hall with borrowed equipment, the four teenagers exploded into their own, playing furiously and as often as possible. Their energetic, hold-nothing-back approach quickly gained the band a respectable following around town, and they rarely failed to insight riotous dance parties among spectators.

Parades Against Parades follow in the creative footsteps of Sonic Youth and Eric's Trip and look to acts like Broken Social Scene and Q and Not U for inspiration. With alternately sweet and crashing guitars, lilting, dreamy vocals, and a rhythm section that has been described as combining "the very best of the Bee Gee's hi hat madness with the punk rock fury of Minor Threat", Parades is sometimes grouped in with the current "dance punk" movement, although they probably never had fashionable enough haircuts to ever really fit in.

Member have since gone on to play in bands Ride 'til Dawn and the Vicious Crystals.
