Girls Rock Camp Guelph Fundraiser: Petra Glynt / Bonnie Trash / Eiyn Sof – Jan 27th @ eBar

The 2nd annual Girls Rock Camp Guelph is happening March break 2017 and a very special fundraiser is happening Friday January 27th at eBar.

Girls Rock Camp Guelph offers local female, trans, and gender nonconforming youth aged 10 – 13 a safe, supportive, and fun space to learn from experienced musicians, work towards a shared goal with a group of their peers, experiment musically, develop confidence, and play in a rock band for the first time! Girls Rock Camp aims to shape the next generation of Guelph’s creative community in a way that addresses the gender disparity in our thriving, but predominantly male, rock music scene.

Petra Glynt is the dreamy, operatic, synth-based alter ego of Toronto-based artist and musician Alexandra MacKenzie. Cutting her teeth as a vocalist and creatrix with punk trance bands Pachamama and Dentata, Petra Glynt is MacKenzie’s solo project, drawing on both her wizardly mastery of looping electronics and her intense alto vibrato that drips with neon and flickers with her deeply textured atmospheric sound.

Twin sisters that shred, creating songs that wouldn’t sound out of place on the “To Live and Die in LA” soundtrack. Soaring vocals, innovative ‘80s-sounding guitar wailing and programming – it all comes together to make songs that hint at nostalgia while looking to a dystopian future. The cool kids at the party have arrived.

Eiyn Sof is the project of Melissa Boraski who crafts catchy experimental pop tunes with just the right amount of texture and haze.

Kazoo! #248: Off World / Bolete (DGBA Matinée) – Jan 29th @ Red Brick Cafe

OFF WORLD (Sandro Perri & Lorenz Peter)
Constellation Records’ Sandro Perri is a musician that truly warrants that annoying categorization of “undefinable.” His new collaborative project ‘Off World’ showcases his unparalleled ability to coalesce acoustic and electronic instrumentation, always exploring new aural territory. Chiefly a studio-based endeavour, Off World traces its origins as far back as 2008, with Perri and fellow Torontonian Lorenz Peter working together on tracks and very occasionally performing live under the moniker. Rich in deconstructed melody, and interplay between acoustic and electronic instrumentation, this is Off World.

Bolete is a trio started in fall 2016 with a sonic collision between Isaiah Farahbakhsh, Ian Bain and Rob Kirsch-Spring. Rooted in jazz, Bolete explores a diverse musical terrain, melding avant-garde, classical, rock and world sounds into an ever-shifting mosaic full of surprise. Isaiah, Ian and Rob augment their sound on the fly with telepathic communication and a very childish playfulness.

Kazoo! #246 : LUKA + Coszmos Quartette (DGBA Matinée) – Jan 14th @ The Cornerstone

kazoo! #246
LUKA (Toronto, ON)
LUKA’s sweet and gentle romantic ballads are sure to win over even the most frigid of hearts. His delivery is direct and simple, armed with no more than his acoustic guitar – his haunting and melancholic music is certain to strike a chord with every audience member. Creator of one of our favorite records of 2016, Summon Up a Monkey King, LUKA keeps getting better.

Coszmos Quartette are a dreamy new band that you probably don’t know just how much you love yet. Blending folk, western-art, chamber and rock (among other influences), CQ are dreamy, gentle art-folk at it’s finest. With a great debut record in tow on Hamilton’s awesome HAVN Records, Coszmos Quartet are a band to get lost in.
