Boyhood Record Release Show with Mr. Power

Door tickets are payable by cash only

Caylie Runciman lives at the end of a long dirt road in Central Frontenac, Ontario. She has released music under the name Boyhood since 2011, when her lo-fi cassette releases earned her slots at festivals and showcases across Canada and the United States. Her songs are a signature combination of opposing elements: catchy and heartbreaking; relatable and alien.
Runciman’s 2018 album Bad Mantras saw her surveying the fallout of a rough few years by way of sharp songcraft and bold arrangements. Gorilla vs. Bear debuted the record for streaming, hailing it as “subtly brilliant” and “raw and beautiful.” The song “Drivin” – praised as a “gentle rock ‘n’ roller” by Exclaim – was featured in the Netflix series Northern Rescue.
Boyhood’s latest record, My Dread, was written, performed, produced and engineered by Runciman. It marks her most painstaking musical creation to date – one that mirrors her introduction to motherhood. It was mixed by Kenny Gilmore (Julia Holter, Ariel Pink) and mastered by Heather Kirby (Austra, Leanne Betasamosake Simpson, Le Ren).
In addition to her work as Boyhood, Runciman assists in running Port William Sound, an artists’ retreat and studio space north of Kingston.

Mr. Power
Mr. Power is a solo project that has evolved into a full fledged psychedelic rock and roll outfit birthed in 2020 after the release of the EP Romance. Since then the band has been playing steadily and developing their rock as well as their roll.

First Crush COVID-19 Policy

First Crush Safer Spaces Policy
All attendees are expected to treat one another with respect. Zero tolerance for any violent, oppressive behaviour and bullying, including but not limited to: racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia and ableism.
