Hollerado is four friends that grew up on the same street in tiny Manotick, Ont.

Hollerado is four friends that grew up on the same street in tiny Manotick, Ont.

They’ve also become one of the most loveable groups on the planet thanks to insanely catchy and energetic guitar pop, boundless creativity and a relentless DIY approach.

Hollerado, which appears Nov. 15 the Waverley Hotel, has also gained international recognition through tours of China and South America and has earned its stripes by gigging Jack White’s the Dead Weather, Weezer, Fucked Up, The Black Lips, Girl Talk, Andrew W.K., Titus Andronicus and others.

Hollerado’s songs combine the melody and energy of ’90s Weezer and Supergrass with the irreverent wit of Stephen Malkmus and their shows that have been described as elementary school recess with beer and piñatas and acid at a house party.

Their ground-breaking debut is jam-packed with crazy-catchy melodies, raging hooks and riffs that will stay with you forever. Record In A Bag is fun, infectious and an instant classic.

The Hollerados come with special guests the Zolas, whose new album, Ancient Mars feels like an isolated summer between college semesters. Instantly nostalgic with touches of New York natives Ambulance Ltd., New York adoptee John Lennon, and the lost riffs of mid-’90’s campus radio.

And Pup. They’re called PUP. They’re from Toronto. They play loud music. They’re four dudes who play punk rock.

Tickets are at Bop City, the Waverley, by phoning 250-336-8322 or at cumberlandvillageworks.com.
