Hot Hot Heat Tickets
Hot Hot Heat is a Synth pop/Dance-punk rock band from Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. The band formed in 1999 and is currently comprised of Steve Bays (vocals and keyboards), Paul Hawley (drums) and Dustin Hawthorne (bass).
In 2000 the band changed direction to a more melodic, pop-influenced style. Strongly influenced by the New Wave sound of 1980s bands XTC, The Clash, and Elvis Costello and the Attractions, the new lineup, with Steve on vocals, quickly released a series of 7" singles and toured extensively in Canada and the American Pacific Northwest, joining up with similarly-styled indie rock bands such as The French Kicks, Radio 4, Ima Robot, and Pretty Girls Make Graves, and opening for established Canadian rockers Sloan on a national tour.

The band's touring exposure attracted the interest of Seattle record label Sub Pop, who signed Hot Hot Heat in 2001, leading to the early 2002 release of EP Knock Knock Knock, produced in part by Chris Walla of Death Cab for Cutie. That release was followed up quickly by the band's first full-length release, Make Up the Breakdown, produced by Nirvana and Soundgarden producer Jack Endino.
That album quickly found critical acclaim, and its singles "Bandages" and "Talk to Me, Dance With Me" received regular airplay on MTV and radio, including influential Los Angeles, California station KROQ, on whose charts both reached No. 1. In 2004 Make Up the Breakdown won "Favorite Album" at the Canadian Independent Music Awards by popular vote.
