The Drug Rugs in one word are bubbly. In one sentence they are a jangly, indie-rock band from Halifax with lyrics worthy of being on a t-shirt. Recalling and reinventing sounds from bands like the Smiths, Prince, The Strokes, St. Vincent, and Iggy Pop, the Drug Rugs own a sound that is modern and unmistakably their own.

“Will you be my PET? Can I be your PET?” With a consistently tight and freaky live sound, blue-haired singer Laura Kempton will mesmerize you, while guitar-players Marcus Tracey and Emma LeBlanc weave in and out of your subconcious. Synth-y riffs and guitar pedals to the max – yet remaining intimate and accessible. The sounds in treble-land float assertively over the grooves of drums and bass.

Named after the hippie Baja hoodie; this band formed in 2015 with the goal of creating pop-y and psychedelia-infused rock. Current and former music students, they draw from an arsenal of influences, with experience in genres like gospel, funk, and world music. They want you to feel what they feel. In the Drug Rug sound, you hear the focused and cohesive energy of a band that knows what they want to be.
