Lights is many things all at once: Singer. Songwriter. Producer. Multi-instrumentalist. Comic book author. DJ. Artist. She’s also unabashedly honest and unapologetically confident. Weaving in and out of alternative, indie, electronic, and dance, she makes manic pop irreverent of boundaries, yet reverent of truth. She speaks her heart musically and her mind lyrically. It’s why her shadow over alternative music and culture continues to grow with streams in the hundreds of millions and widespread critical acclaim. Over the course of career thus far, the Canada-born disruptor has garnered four JUNO Awards, including 2020’s “Dance Recording of the Year” for the platinum smash “Love Me” with Felix Cartal and “Pop Album of the Year” for her previous two albums, Skin&Earth and Little Machines. She has sold out tours on multiple continents and powered collaborations with Travis Barker, deadmau5, Kaskade, Steve Aoki, Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park, and more. Now, she captivates like never before with PƎP and its brand-new counterpart album dEd.
ABOUT THE VENUE
The Drill Hall
The Drill Hall at Base31 is a big stage, big sound performance space in a remarkable historic setting. This expansive and striking venue features a soaring hangar-like ceiling, exceptional state-of-the-art sound and lighting, with the most celebrated, chart-top musicians in Canada gracing its stage. The Drill Hall has a capacity of up to 1000 people, though individual show capacities may vary. Both reserved seating and general admission standing ticket options are on offer in this immersive venue, with lots of room to get up and dance. Both pre-show and during the performance, audiences can expect to be welcomed to the Drill Hall’s large, outdoor, licensed patio where local food and drink vendors share their culinary specialties surrounded by picnic table seating.
The Drill Hall is a magnificent 22,000 sq ft building built in 1940. It has a steel structure and a historic cedar shake exterior. The building was used by the RAF, RCAF, RCSA (AA) and the First Battalion of the Canadian Guards as both a drill hall and a gymnasium. Drills were practiced in both the drill hall and the patch of land adjacent to the hall – the parade square. During the 1950’s and 1960’s, the military opened the gymnasium doors on Thursday nights to the local community. It is said that there were often competitions against community teams and the military teams.
