Better Living Through Chemistry

Get ready to rock Ottawa! On April 18th, 2024, Overflow’s Thursday Night Indie Series presents the local legends, Better Living Through Chemistry. This powerhouse band, consisting of Luigi Saracino on vocals and words (plus some cartoon magic), Trevor Kealey and Paul Townsend on guitars and vocals, Richard Girard on bass and vocals, and Chris Saracino on drums, has been a staple of Ottawa’s music scene for years.

Better Living Through Chemistry isn’t just any rock band — they’re masters of the craft, delivering clever lyrics and irresistible hooks that’ll have you singing along all night. Despite battling broken strings, cracked cymbals, and buzzing mics, they’ve persevered, earning a dedicated fanbase and a reputation for unforgettable live performances.

Drawing inspiration from the alternative music scene of the 80s and 90s, Better Living Through Chemistry proudly wears their influences on their sleeves, with nods to The Replacements, Faith No More, R.E.M., Soul Asylum, and many others. Each member brings their unique talent and energy to the stage, creating a sonic experience that’s both nostalgic and fresh.

Don’t miss your chance to witness Better Living Through Chemistry in their element, live and unfiltered at Overflow. It’s a rare opportunity to see this Ottawa favorite in their hometown, and it’s guaranteed to be a night you won’t soon forget. Mark your calendars and get ready to rock out!

From the moment they burst onto the scene, it was clear that something special was happening. With seething beats, powerful vocals, and grooving bass lines, The Power Naps deliver performances that captivate and mesmerize.
