Double Experience

July 2, 2021 8:00 pm . Brock Tinsley and Ian Nichols form the nucleus of Double Experience, featuring a host of in-studio and onstage collaborators such as Fred Mascherino (ex-Taking Back Sunday). Live performance is important to Double Experience. Having played almost 750 shows in 18 countries over the last 5 years, the band has performed at MAGFest, GuardianCon, Ottawa ComicCon, Montreal ComicCon, YetiCon, and ThunderCon. The band has shared the stage with Danko Jones, MC Lars, Monster Truck and more, expanding their fanbase exponentially since their 2014 inception. The band has earned its notoriety by staying true to the members' interests. They wrote "The Glimmer Shot" as an earnest tribute to the video game Destiny. The game developers, Bungie, took notice of the enthusiastic reaction to the track and showered the band with in-game rewards. Fans showered the band with over a half-million streams on Spotify alone. "Ian and I believe that rock music can still be vital and accessible, without being pastiche," says Tinsley. "In fact, it's more honest for our band to write about how passionate we feel about specific pop culture than it is to write about blanket, angry emotions. We don't want to hold onto those emotions during the best years of our lives." . --, ON - .. Event Details. Location: --, ON - , Ottawa
