Horizon Stage Presents: Nice Horse
September 20 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm$30 – $35
Nice Horse is what happens when four bold, brilliant, and badass women get together to raise a little hell—and play a little music at the same time. This Alberta-based band is out to turn the tables on the country music world and show the guys that they can rock—and party—just as hard. Sure, there are plenty of strong female country artists in Daisy Dukes out there, but try to name another self-contained unit that plays their own instruments and writes songs as potent as the new feminist anthem “Mansplainin’” and the band’s roof-raising single “Pony Up.” They’ve had their share of surprised reactions as well from people unaccustomed to seeing an all-female rockin’ country band, but they manage to take those in stride with their infectious humour. It’s partly to be expected when you’re breaking new ground, and in some ways the women of Nice Horse see themselves following in the platform-heeled footsteps of the Spice Girls by offering their own version of Girl Power, albeit with a rootsy twist. The bottom line is that if you’re looking for a good time, Nice Horse is more than willing to take you along for the ride.
