Dusted featuring Brian Borcherdt will be playing the Trailside with one of Charlottetown’s most exciting bands Absolute Losers.
Brian Borcherdt’s greatest success came after he left Nova Scotia. However, it was his formative years as an East Coast teenager that influenced everything to come. Even while Toronto was his home base, he continued touring back east as a solo artist, hitting those same rural halls and all ages concerts. His main gig, however, changed his path and pulled him further and further away. Unassuming at first, his experimental-noise-dance project Holy Fuck took off quickly. Amidst that initial buzz he landed a record deal with XL, hit the world’s biggest festivals, like Glastonbury and Coachella, and gained the support from the likes of Radiohead, Iggy Pop, and the late Lou Reed. Their latest record, 2020’s Deleter was one of their most critically well-received offerings, putting them well on top for what was to be another whirlwind year of touring and international festivals.
Absolute Losers is an indie/post-punk trio based in Charlottetown, PEI. The group leans into their thin instrumentation with wiry guitar work, intertwining bass and drum parts, and nonchalant vocals. Drawing inspiration from western Canada’s music scene, Absolute Losers hopes to bring the tight, rhythmically driven sound to the East Coast.
