About Exit Division:
Lion-like in its ferocity, Exit Division is a four-piece alt-rock band hailing from Calgary, Alberta. With its DNA rooted in post-grunge, Exit Division’s sound is known for its intense guitar riffs, in-your-face drum grooves, elaborate basslines, and haunting vocals reminiscent of early 90’s Seattle. Their philosophical lyrics lead listeners into the innermost crevices of the human experience, prompting a subtle and clever ambiguity well surpassing their youth.
Drawing on combined influences: Alice in Chains, Arctic Monkeys, Deftones, and Queens of the Stone Age, their first album Psychosis takes you on a journey across genre, time, and tempo, with powerful enigmatic storytelling that leaves you wanting more. From the stage, Exit Division will awaken a wild swarm of havoc with delicate precision, captivating you until the very last note.
About Jam Club:
Jam Club has been an integral part of National Music Centre’s programming for over a decade. Born out of the earlier Guitar Club program that was aimed specifically towards “at risk” youth, today Jam Club emphasizes creating space and opportunity for any and all teens in the community. This weekly free after-school drop-in program brings teens and volunteers together in support of music learning and the acquisition of important life skills such as teamwork, collaboration, intuition, and timing.

NMC Jam Club is presented by CJAY-92’s Jesse & JD with support from the Richardson Foundation and Sticks & Strings.
