Experimental Canadian rock band Broken Social Scene released Hug of Thunder, its fifth studio album, via Arts & Crafts in July. The 17-person collective then launched a world tour that included a stop at 9:30 Club on Sept. 19. That night quickly sold out, and the band added a second show at 9:30 Club on Wednesday, Sept. 20. You can win tickets to attend that show with Parklife DC.
Praising Hug of Thunder, the New York Times wrote, “Broken Social Scene’s music rejoices in what clever teamwork can construct.” Produced by Joe Chiccarelli with Nyles Spencer and mixed by Shawn Everett, Hug of Thunder covers a lot of ground in 12 tracks, embracing psychedelia, soul, and even disco.

Favorite Song: Romance to the grave. Send tickets my way please!
It’s all gonna break, is my favorite. I love most Canadian bands, especially BSS.
I have heard some of their music in the past, but I cannot claim to be familiar with it. More recently, I heard and enjoyed “Jack Tar On Shore” from a collection of “pirate ballads, sea songs & chanteys”, so I’ll go with that.
Loved them since 2004 you forgot it in people just found out about this 2 day concert today and am overwhelmed by their new album
