The fourth installment of Wyrd, Weird Canada's traveling series of exploration and collaboration, features an incredible lineup of otherworldly sound and vision traveling between Toronto and Montreal. We're proudly collaborating with two of Canada's most forward-thinking musical ventures: Montreal's Suoni Per Il Popolo and Toronto's The Music Gallery (as part of their Pop-Avant series).
We're proud to host a unique collaboration between Toronto's folk goddess Jennifer Castle and bog-lord Wyrd Visions. Harkening to their early, experimental roots the two are recreating their magyk for the first time in years. Joining the ethereal duo is Zachary Fairbrother, taking a departure from the proto-punk shreddery of Lantern to disarm audiences with his multi-amp, multi-guitar feedback-drone orchestra, sure to fill the sacred halls of The Music Gallery (Toronto) and Casa del Popolo (Montreal) with glorious standing waves of dense vibration. Each evening will be ceremoniously opened by Isla Craig's sublime choral grooves, amplified through collaboration with her Soul Sisters Supreme Redux 2.0, completing Wyrd's sonic triumvirate.
In addition to the festive sounds, both Montreal and Toronto have unique additions of their own.
Toronto: A special "Listening Salon" will be hosted Saturday afternoon featuring Weird Canada's Aaron Levin and Jesse Locke dissecting the many unique releases from Music Gallery Editions (1976 - 1983).
Montreal: opening the Montreal show are The High Dukes, a special collaborative group comprised of members from Kinnta Records.
