Friday 24

Metal Night at MCC: Indian Handcrafts, Mt. Cyanide, & Tangents (19+)

Location: Midland Cultural Centre - 333 King Street, Midland

Time: 9:30PM - 12:00AM
Indian Handcrafts first formed in 2010 while Brandyn James Aikins and Daniel Brandon Allen were playing together in another band. Indian Handcrafts came together after the two realized that, as the only members in the band who got along, they would be better off as a dynamic duo. Breaking off into their own band, the pair built a sound based on a solid foundation of riff-centric sludge rock tinged with a psychedelic atmosphere, with Allen on guitars, Aikins on drums, and both handling vocal duties.
