Welcome to the Lizard Lounge, we will be pleased to seat you. The entertainment this evening is none other than Auroras, hailing from Vancouver, Canada. Bringing you their carefully curated blend of Desert Rock meets Brit Rock, we truly hope you will join us on the journey we are about to embark on.
Think 1970’s Las Vegas. You pull your 1971 Cadillac Eldorado into the valet and enter the Palms Hotel & Casino to find a cocktail bar that resembles something out of a movie, astutely arranged to draw you attention to the odd and objectionable characters who occupy it. Proceeding to seat you, the hostess asks your name, which you swiftly decline to give. This is lawless country; this is no place for civilized humans, no place for anyone with a firm belief in regulation, red tape, or a dress code which references footwear.
As the needle drops on Auroras’ album, the cocktail lounge swells with the noise of fellow patrons and pianos playing to choke the lewd conversation coming from the far west corner, which is almost barely recognizable as human. But as that moment falls to a whisper, the band enters with their lead single Isolation Blues, and only then is it revealed how the evening’s expectations for truculence, debauchery and unsavoury behaviour will be shaped.
The band continues with Speed Demon, bringing you to a place no more than 5 miles southwest from the Lizard Lounge’s corner booth you so comfortably occupy, transporting you on a journey to a desert road to tell a tale of heartbreak, painful memories, and a fiery demise.
As the album leads to a close, the patrons soon realize they have been both swept off and promptly returned to the discomfort of the Lizard Lounge they so dearly hoped would be their haven, and not the foreshadowing of their ultimate resting place. As Richard Jacquard (vocals, guitar), Nate Parsons (bass, vocals) and Brian Welsch (drums) exit the stage, a disingenuous thanks is bestowed upon them from an audience of caricature-looking guests we would choose never to see again.

History Of LMA -
Historic LMA (Little Mountain Sound Studios) has been a staple in Vancouver since the early 1970's. Vancouver is no stranger to Great Recording Studios, in fact, some of the best Recording Studios in Canada, arguably North America, lay hidden amongst our high-rises, and LMA is no exception! Managed and owned by Bob Brooks since 1982, LMA saw major success through the 70's, 80's and 90's. Famed Producers Bob Rock and Bruce Levens both began their engineer/production careers at LMA while working with some of the best in the business. The clients who have recorded at LMA include: Bryan Adams, Van Halen, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi and Metallica, to name a few... While the years have gone by, LMA has changed but the original location remains as a creative space for artists through its use as satellite location for Nimbus School of Recording Media. These days, while our cities young producers and musicians hone their craft at LMS, they are only too aware they stand on the shoulders of giants. And so, the legacy of LMA lives on in the young and the bold.
