Date and time


St. Catharines, ON



Offered in English.



Originally presented live on Sunday 5 July – Culture Reject (LIVE STREAM FROM PARTRIDGE HALL!)

Presented by the FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre

The music of Culture Reject draws comparisons to Broken Social Scene, Andy Shauf, Talking Heads and the “real soundtrack to Wes Anderson Films” -- yet remains a truly original offering of Lo-Fi Soul delight.

Niagara-raised Michael O'Connell and crew - Karri North, Carlie Howell (Beverley Glenn Copeland) and local drumming dynamo Marshall Bureau (Great Lake Swimmers) - create a live show filled with sophisticated arrangements of simple and complex pop songs, subdued harmonies, big hooks, nuanced highlights and.... an audience that doesn't want to be anywhere else.

On Sunday 5 July the PAC hosted this event as our first live stream from Partridge Hall stage as part of the ongoing #NiagaraPerforms online concert + event series featuring local musicians and arts organizations.
