Doug and the Slugs, one of the most recognizable Canadian bands of the last 40 years, will perform in concert in Ladner on Saturday, Oct. 22.
To match Genesis Theatre’s intimate environment, the band has planned a “Semi-Unplugged Slugs” version of their show including stories, hidden gems, and all their favourite songs.
Formed in Vancouver in the fall of 1977, the band became one of the hottest attractions in the area. The Slugs’ first album, Cognac and Bologna, was released in the fall of 1980 and included radio hits in Too Bad and Chinatown Calculation. Their upbeat musical style, musicianship, and offbeat stage antics have made them a staple of Canada’s radio and music scene for decades.
Reserved tickets are $55 and may be purchased on-line at: https://genesis-theatre.tickit.ca/.
Genesis Theatre, which is operated by Delta School District, is located at 5005-45th Avenue in Ladner. The concert is set for 7:30 p.m.
