Hailing from Edmonton Alberta, rock trio Upsidedowntown was formed in April 2012 by Aaron Formaniuk (guitar/vocals) and Jackson Vasicek (drums). Having been friends since they were 16 as well as band mates on and off, the chemistry was already there. Jackson had just returned from living in Australia for a year and Aaron was itching to play some rock and roll, They set up in Jacksons dads basement and began to set the foundation for what they are today. They now have 2 EPs (Car, Car… Too) Western Canadian tours, Festival appearances, local radio play, a great new music video (Normal is Weird) and countless gigs under their belt. They thrill audiences with their signature light-hearted yet explosive sound with high energy, positive, and fun live performances. With elements of April Wine, Sloan, and The Tragically Hip, Upsidedowntown belongs on rock radio and your favourite playlist.
