Jo Passed (2019)

Vancouver, BC

Not many bands can mangle their formative influences quite like Jo Passed can. Led by frontman Jo Hirabayashi, the mainstay Vancouver band’s music is a diverse pallete of 60s psychedelia and krautrock, 80s post-punk, and 90s grunge, all filtered through the brain of one of Canada’s most consistently wonky and wildly modern songwriters. After signing with Sub Pop in 2018, Jo Passed have since become road veterans, slinging their off-kilter brand of guitar music to growing crowds worldwide.
