Larry and His Flask.

Larry and his Flask are making their way back to Fernie for a third time. Hailing from Oregon, the six-piece band is in the midst of their Great White North Canadian tour, which includes a stop at The Northern Thursday night.

Formed by brothers Jamin and Jesse Marshall back in 2003, Larry and his Flask spent its first half-decade as punk-rockers, with a ‘blood-sweat-and-beers’ live show taking priority over things like notes and melodies. Today, the Flask (as the band’s expanding army of fans calls them), have evolved into a blurry blend of lightning fast string-band picking, with gorgeous nods to old-school country and sublime multi-part harmonies, all presented through a prism of punk chaos.

The boys have grown and changed, but their shows are still described as gloriously physical displays of live music’s sheer power.

The Flask is teaming up with Fernie’s own Shred Kelly and Willy Tea Taylor to put on a show you won’t soon forget. The band will take the stage at The Northern Thursday night. Tickets available at the door.
