Very excited to present this show to you. Bringing Beams back for the first time in over half a year, as well as having Papermaps get together and do their thing for the first time in a long time along with The Nursery who will be making their Junction City Debut. If you're looking for some of the best independent music in the city on this night, come out to the Junction and get blown away.

The Nursery
The Nursery is a post-modern pop foursome from Canada who weave dreamwave atmospheres into wild eyed danceable songs. After releasing an EP in 2013, the band set out to push their sound to bolder, darker and more vulnerable places. Their debut full length, Life After Wartime, is due out this summer.

Papermaps is a Toronto-based indie project led by producer/songwriter Dean Marino. The current line-up consists of Dean Marino, Betty Dimo, Johnny Rowe and Andy Soto (who currently resides in Paris, France). “Dream pop” most succinctly describes their sound. They are heavily influenced by 60’s psych/garage, late-70’s post-punk, mid-80’s college rock and early-90’s “alternative” sounds.

As a true collective, the seven-piece ensemble’s sound brings together elements of country, bluegrass, folk, and avant garde to create music that echoes long-dead Appalachian voices while bravely injecting that spirit into 21st century pop. With the writing of co-front woman Anna Mernieks as its foundation, Beams pushes the boundaries of tradition, at the same time allowing each member space to contribute their distinctive voices toward a greater end. With The Gutters and The Glass, those results are well beyond anything Beams has conceived up to now.
