Luke Dowler & The Lucky Breaks at the Top Hat



Fresh off an East Coast tour in 2019, Northwest Montana artist, Luke Dowler, is planning 2 new releases within the year and a busy 2020 of touring to support the records. The first to be released is EAST, the final of 4 EPs, in what he calls the Compass Project. Produced and mixed himself, the records, NORTH, SOUTH, EAST, and WEST, showcase Dowler’s versatility as a songwriter and performer. Songs like “Good Enough” and “Baby, We’re All Monsters” are tied together by a folk-rock thread, while “Halfway” and “College Towns” (written about Missoula, MT) showcase a modern blend of electronic and organic vibes.

Named by Paste Magazine as an artist to listen to now, Dowler’s music has been featured on HGTV, Without A Trace, Heartland and many other indie films. Because of his versatility, Dowler has also been hired to compose for film and documentaries “Finding Faeries, 2016; The Forlorned, 2017; Afterlight, 2018).

Wednesday, December 4th
SkiiTour at the Rialto



Fusing two fresh-off-the-mountain electronic music addicts, Tim and Dave together create 12 feet and 350 pounds of turbo-funk-boosted, snowsuit-donning man flesh. Hailing from the world famous ski town of Whistler, this dynamic duo loves shredding fresh powder almost as much as they love smashing out hit-records in the studio.

In the spring of 2016, they started up their own record label, Double Black Records. Last spring ‘Bad Behaviour’ was premiered on Diplo & Friends (BBC Radio 1) and subsequently charted on Beatport after being released by Fool’s Gold Records.  They started 2019 with a bang holding onto the #1 song on Beatport Electro House charts with “Redlight” for 5 straight weeks.
