The Roxy Cabaret Presents Crown and Anchor
Roughly 13.7 billion years ago the Big Bang occurred and space itself started expanding faster than the speed of light. One second after the Big Bang the universe was filled with neutrons, protons, electrons, anti-electrons, photons and neutrinos. And, eventually, a little planet named Earth was formed.
3.5 billion years ago, beneath Earth's early seas, something stirred. Life. Bacteria, just tough enough to survive the the highly toxic primordial atmosphere, roamed Earth's soupy miasma. Those hardy and rugged bacteria, the pioneers of life, would go on to evolve into a Vancouver based folk/rock band named Crown and Anchor.
Free from the primeval ocean from whence they came, and no longer hindered by fins, Crown and Anchor sought to wander over the Pacific Northwest's mountains, forests, shores and rainy highways as they collected stories, ghosts and every dusty nebulous moment they could.
The result of their wandering is an expansive creation of dark acoustic rhythms, eerie electric guitars, drums steady as a train, bass lines intricate as your veins, and windswept vocals – all attempting to tell the basic human stories about our brief time on this little planet.
Crown and Anchor 13.7 billion years in development.
