Partner Performance Cancelled

February 28, 2018) Please note that the March 1st, 8pm, Partner performance at Algoma University’s Speakeasy has been cancelled due to a personal emergency of the band.


Algoma University is pleased to announce that Canadian east coast music phenomenon Partner will be playing a free concert in The Speakeasy on Thursday, March 1 at 8:00pm.

Partner has been named “best new band in Canada” by the Globe and Mail.

In 2017, their debut album, In Search of Lost Time, was one of the CBC and National Public Radio’s Top 10 Albums of the Year.

Partner consists of queer best friends Josée Caron and Lucy Niles, who met while attending Mount Allison University.

Their music is genre-bending, exploring intimacy, friendship, and sexuality.

Some of their best-known songs include “Play the Field”, “The ‘Ellen’ Page” and “Comfort Zone”.

Partner delivers a refreshing and vital twist on a classic, prompting you to re-think what you thought was possible in rock.

To listen to their music, visit partnerband.bandcamp.com.

This concert is open to the public.

The Speakeasy bar will also be open.
