Free Concert: Wintersleep

  • Springer Market Square 216 Ontario St. Kingston, ON Canada (map)

For the fourth consecutive year, the City of Kingston is proud to present two free concerts in Springer Market Square featuring indie rock superstars Wintersleep and Canadian rock'n roll icon David Wilcox.

The first Rockin' the Square concert of the season will take place on Friday, June 17 at 8 p.m. and will feature Wintersleep. 

Wintersleep's single,"Amerika", is currently number one on the modern rock, alternative, overall rock and active rock Billboard charts and the band was recently awarded single of the year at the 16th annual independent music awards during Canadian Music Week. The album, The Great Detachment, is very much an  introspective work, both conceptually and thematically. Of course, it delivers a welcome dose of the atmospheric, entrancing alt-rock for which the band has become known – the beautifully orchestrated arrangements anchored by haunting, almost hypnotic vocal melodies; however, the way those arrangements were approached and the poetry they relay are very much the product of some self-(re)discovery.  This concert is presented by radio partner 98.9 The Drive.

The second Rockin' the Square of the season will take place Friday, July 29 at 8 p.m. with David Wilcox.
