August 21, 2018 — Toronto, Ontario — Let’s come together for an evening of fresh craft beer, good company, and infectious ‘can’t get that song out of my head’ live music… all for a great cause! In its second year in hometown Calgary, and first year in Toronto, Big Rock Brewery (TSX: BR) presents the Big Rock Barn Burner concert – featuring Mt. Joy, The Darcys and Girlfriend Material.

Headliners Mt. Joy hail from Los Angeles by way of Philadelphia, and have cultivated a rabid fan-base with their first self-titled album.   Steeped in folk-rock tradition and powered by the intuitive creative connection between its members, Mt. Joy’s live show offers a unique crowd driven experience.

Local art-rock heroes The Darcys have been a staple of the Toronto music scene for ten years, touting Juno and Polaris Music Prize nominations for their 2013 album Warring.  You’ve heard their current radio single featuring Leah Fay, Just Here With My Friends.  Their live show is not to be missed.

Girlfriend Material, a recent collaboration featuring members of notable Canadian bands, Hollerado and Tokyo Police Club, are releasing their first full-length album this fall following up their self-titled EP from 2017.
