Half Moon Run on are on the rise.
The Montreal-based band — with members originally from Ottawa and Comox, British Columbia — released their debut album Dark Eyes last year to rave reviews.
The album immediately charted on Canadian lists, and they became that new “buzz band” people were talking about at festivals. This led to a frenzied 32 shows in 32 nights across Europe — a pace that continues for the trio.
Half Moon Run are currently on a headlining tour that comes through Ottawa on March 9 at Zaphod Beeblebrox in the ByWard Market. The show is technically sold out, so here’s to hoping you already grabbed a ticket or that they’ll open up some tickets at the door. It will be worth it, as this is an opportunity to see them in an intimate setting before they get pushed into bigger venues sooner than later.
