Venus Fest-72
September 30th, 2017 – Weaves at Venus Fest in Toronto

Not out of the norm there was a show in Toronto. An artistic expression with feminist inspiration was the festival’s goal. Welcoming all into a safe space much needed in the music scene. Venus Fest did just that, by creating a safe, welcoming space dedicated to woman, art, and music. One of the first festivals in Toronto to celebrate an all female lead lineup, the festival was welcomed by many. Crowds came early to catch all the talent in the lineup, including headliner, Weaves.  Take a look at the photos below.

Locals Only: New Weaves – “#53”

unnamedToronto’s own bad ass rockers, Weaves, are back mighty quick with a new release. #53 is the latest enthralling tale from the band. A new single isn’t the only news from the band. A new LP, Wide Open, will be released on October 6th.

Mastering the ability to tell stories while layering their quirky charm and hypnotic energy from the stage into each track, #53 is no different. Exploring themselves while taking their place in the rock world, the track comes with a new look at the band. While making their way across the globe and gathering international attention singer and songwriter Jasmine Burke takes the upcoming album as a chance to get a more personal look at the band.

Listen to the first release off of the new album below.

[Count down to CMW] The Canadian Gems

Canadian Music Week is nearly here, beginning April 18th-23rd. Talents from around the world will come to fill up every venue in Toronto for a week. But sometimes you don’t have to look to far to see some of the best talent. Canada’s got some amazing bands you might not have heard off (but definitely need too). Here is a list of bands you NEED to see at this years festival.

Casper Skulls

0008259011_10You’ve most certainly seen this band on a playbill. Casper Skulls are the reason people come early to shows. They capture crowds with their grunge rock and turn the audience into obsessed fans.

Hollerado

16114755_10155120475301162_1283634342609929662_nThe Canadian darlings are a band to know. If you haven’t heard of Hollerado you’re missing out. They’re a band with an eccentric energy that thrives in each one of their albums. Playing The Indies at The Phoenix, the show will not be one to miss.

The Buzz Record stars are an indie dream. Live they pour their souls onto the stage. Their sold out shows are always different and never cease to amaze. Their music is something to be experienced live.

Hoan

Celebrating their album launch at CMW, the band is an odd treat. Mellow and dark, their sound if soft and gripping. It gives you chill by offsetting a comfort to lose yourself in.

 

Yi

Yi-by-Tara-Newell-aMaking their CMW debut, Yi, is a rare experimental project the emulates a sound somewhere between undistinguishable and emotionally driven.
