PsynLangwage is a revolution in the Montreal Hip-Hop scene.
STORY: Three brothers (DaDestroya, Negrosapien and HemmRage) fed up with the direction that Hip-Hop music was taking, decided to band together and destroy everything in their path.
When people hear about Hip-Hop, they come to expect talk of jewelry, guns and other cheap tricks. PsynLangwage is here to change that. They mix Comedy, Crowd Participation and Paper Bag Heads to bring performing back to the art form.
Tired of bling-music? Do you want Change? Ready to put that bag over your head?
Then you’re ready to PSYN UP!
Thee Sin Caves are the Von trapps of Punk rock or is it Garage rock or Psych rock ?
Three members related not only by blood or genetic prerequisites or serendipitious happenstance but by some unknowned dark force from the ethers…or not …*chuckles *.
The Rock Rollers are a Montreal-based group representing three generations of musicians. We play country swing, rockabilly and roots-based music, a mixed bag of classics and originals (about 50/50 although there is no shortage of excellent original songs). Catchy, danceable and fun for everybody!
