No Joy opening for Vivian Girls at the Biltmore Cabaret in Vancouver.
Jasamine White-Gluz and Laura Lloyd formed No Joy in late 2009.
According to Wiki, “White-Gluz was living in Los Angeles while Lloyd was living in Montreal. They began collaborating via email, which eventually led to White-Gluz’s return to Montreal and their first show (with Grant Hart of Hüsker Dü) on December 15, 2009. The band continued to play locally, including a show with then-up-and-coming indie band Best Coast. The latter’s lead singer, Bethany Cosentino, took a liking to the band and tweeted, ‘Dude, No Joy is the best band ever. Two hot blonde girls just shredding away. Sooooo amazing.'”
So far, the duo has released a 7″, “No Summer,” on Mexican Summer. They released their debut album, Ghost Blonde, last year to critical acclaim.
