Kazoo! #237: The Magic / The Luyas – Sept 15th @ eBar


The Gordon Brothers, Geordie and Evan are back and ready to celebrate the release of their long-awaited full length album ‘Nightfalling’. Their new album is everything we’ve come to love about The Magic: warm vintage synth tones, smooth soul, and solid-gold songwriting. Are you ready to experience the disco-soul powers of The Magic?

It is easy to get lost in the Luyas’ musical world. Their retro-futurist songs are drenched in echo, and built from guitars, French horn, piles of keyboards, drums and percussion. The Luyas are set to release their first new music in four years with ‘Says You’, a new five-track EP on Paper Bag Records. We’re beyond excited to welcome The Luyas back to Guelph!

Kazoo! #237: Thursday September 15th @ eBar (41 Quebec St)
All Ages / Licensed – Doors 10pm – $10 at the door

Kazoo! #236: Bart / Mauno – August 6th @ Silence


Hailing from Toronto, BART play masterfully crafted rock songs that straddle the line between King Crimson and the Beach Boys. Featuring ex-members of The Elwins and Ruby Coast, BART’s perfect, multi-part harmonies are met with ingenious guitar riffs and a level of talent that is not often seen among their musical contemporaries.

Mao-no. It’s pronounced Mao-No. Winning hearts every time they step on stage or whenever someone new hears their incredible debut, Rough Master, Halifax’s Mauno recalls the smart, introspective guitar rock of Chad VanGaleen and Jon McKiel while bringing something new to the table. Once again, Mao-No. You don’t want to mispronounce the name of your new fave band.

Kazoo! #235: Weird Lines / Adrian Teacher and the Subs / Cold on Pluto

Kazoo #235

Kazoo #235

A five-headed beast made up of Julie Doiron, C.L. McLaughlin, Jon McKiel, James Anderson and Chris Meaney has been unleashed on the world. With a new record set to come out on July 8th via Sappy Future Ltd., Weird Lines mix the sound of nostalgia with the sound of wondering what’s around the corner, Weird Lines are the band you and I need right now.

Whether it was fronting COOL TV or Apollo Ghosts, Adrian Teacher wows every time he performs. Along with Amanda Panda (drums) and British Robbie (Bass), Adrian Teacher and the Subs return to Guelph, triumphantly we say, with a shiny debut record in tow called “Terminal City”. One in a million. One in 2 million. Adrian Teacher and the Subs.

Cold on Pluto is the brainchild of Rigel Rozanski. A few of us at Kazoo! were lucky enough to see his unique breed of smart, spacey and affecting pop songs a few months back and we knew we had to have him do a show with us. Please welcome the new kid on the block — we’re lucky to have him on said block.

Kazoo! #234: The Burning Hell / Partner – June 14 @ eBar

The Burning Hell is the alter-ego of ukulele player and all-purpose nerd Mathias Kom. The essence of The Burning Hell is music to dance to while laughing about death, music you can sing along to while smiling out of the side of your mouth, knowing that while the end may be near, the bar is still open. Touring the world many times over, it has been years since the full band has performed in Guelph and we are thrilled that their return is now.

Out of the mighty Sackville, NB scene, Josée Caron and Lucy Niles formed Partner. Following the release of a couple of excellent music videos, blowing minds every time they take to the stage and signing to You’ve Changed Records, Partner’s waves are only going to get bigger. With a unique breed of music that deals with everything from queer politics to hot knives, and references to 1990s alternative, Partner might just be Canada’s best new thing.

Doors at 9:30pm

Jimmie is our hero. If you’ve seen him, he’s probably your hero too. Whether he’s Standing in a Line, on a Skype Date or Waist Deep in the Water, from province to province, we love our hero and our hero is finally returning – and he’s got a killer new record in check. Join the band.

ESTHER GREY (Guelph) //
Local haunted brilliance. Ethereal vocals over thumping baroque blues, textures, moods, and rock ‘n roll perfection. Every member of this band has been a big part in what makes this community great but, as Esther Grey, they soar to the highest of heights. With a new record brewing and local performances all too rare, dive into one of our greatest treats.

BONNIE TRASH (Guelph) //
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.

BANANA LAMBS (Guelph) //
Formed at the first Girls Rock Camp in March 2016; Hannah, Sadie and Saffra make up Guelph’s fiercest new band. Banana Lambs, you ready?

SATURDAY JUNE 4TH  @ GCVI Pavilion (155 Paisley Street, back – Physically Accessible)

Guelph’s own poet laureate, Bry Webb weaves together the honest sentiments that get us all through each day. A deeply affecting singer/songwriter, Bry’s peaceful and sincere performances are full of celebratory, nostalgic and touching songs, delivered in a way that makes you understand why he’s been so influential in Canadian music for the past 10+ years. The Providers at this performance will be rounded up by Nathan Lawr and Rich Burnett.

BERNICE (Toronto) //
Led by singer Robin Dann’s beautiful and intricate vocal melodies, and featuring some of Toronto’s best players (Thom Gill, Colin Fisher, Josh Cole, Felicity Williams and Phil Melanson), Toronto’s Bernice is imbued with a sense of experimentalism and wonder. Simply put, there’s something deeply affecting and infectious about Bernice’s songs. Never has so much skill, passion, and thought been contained within something so delicate.


SATURDAY JUNE 4TH @ Take Time Vintage (33 Carden Street, Upstairs – – Not Physically Accessible)
4:00pm to 7:00pm

REPORTING LIVE FROM SOMEWHERE – Book Launch / Exhibition by Justin Gordon (Montreal/Guelph) //
Justin Gordon (JG) is a self-taught, gender-queer visual artist currently living in Montreal, Quebec. They make works in the form of small press art books and narrative comics, painted installations and editions of silkscreen posters and t-shirts. Reporting Live From Somewhere is an exhibit of new paintings and printed ephemera made in the window from spring to the first days of summer.


SATURDAY JUNE 4TH @ TNT Boxing Academy (71 Wyndham Street South – Partially Physically Accessible, No Washroom)
Doors at 9:00pm

HOODED FANG (Toronto) //
These Toronto garage rock kingpins offer up timeless melodies brimming with psychedelia and ‘60s sunshine pop. With the release of their brand new album, Venus on Edge, Hooded Fang cemented themselves as Toronto’s most infectious band with tunes that stick with you for days. There’s something about Hooded Fang’s sound that will compel you to grab your drink, walk to the middle of the dance floor and let loose with absolute abandon.

WHOOP-SZO (London/Guelph) //
Arty, spastic, dynamic and entirely unique, you won’t find another band like WHOOP-Szo. With a cast of members roaming in and out of Guelph, this band of creative counterparts combines sound collage, disjointed parts, complex arrangements, and supreme momentum to weave sonic stories, all at once disorienting and enjoyable. Sip on the psychedelic sound of WHOOP-Szo, we promise you’ll taste a far-reaching rainbow of tones.

MOTËM (Hamilton) //
Hamilton’s prince of weird, Motëm is truly one of a kind. With a prolific output, Motëm has released countless albums and mixtapes over the last decade, firmly establishing a cult following in his home base of Hamilton, ON and around the world. His eccentric and playful tunes are balanced with his utterly unique spoken-rap delivery exploring complex and heartfelt emotional terrain. Is it rap? Skweee? Synth-Funk? Whatever you want to call it, it’s distinctively Motëm who occupies an enigmatic musical world that’s all his own.
