Kazoo! Fest 2017 – Podcast #8

For our 8th Kazoo! Fest Podcast, we’ve got an episode of Vish Khanna’s amazing podcast Kreative Kontrol, check it out and subscribe!

Century Egg is an artful young pop-rock band based in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Featuring lyrics in Mandarin and English sung by a young woman named Shane Keyu Song, Century Egg are an animated quartet in more ways then one. They’ve just released a new EP called River God, and are set to play select shows across Canada, including stops at the Ebar in Guelph on April 7 for Kazoo! Fest. Song, Robert Drisdelle, Tri Le, and Nick Dourado make up Century Egg and all of them recently joined Vish for an in-depth conversation about what life is like in Halifax, Calgary, and China, Shane’s upbringing in China and her background as a graphic artist and animator, oppression and liberation, racialized and underrepresented musicians in Canada, playing cool music, and much more. Sponsored by the Bookshelf, Pizza Trokadero, and Planet Bean Coffee.

Kazoo! Fest 2017 – Podcast #6

This week Andrea Patehviri of CFRU 93.3‘s Indie Alarm Clock has a conversation with Katie Ewald, curator of Short&Sweet Guelph Edition 2017, and Kelly McCullough, fan of Short&Sweet! Short&Sweet will showcase 32 contemporary dancers who have carte blanche to create whatever they want… as long as it is under three minutes! Any artist going over the allotted time will be immediately cut off. Katie, Kelly, and I discuss the ways in which time constraints may affect the creation of a work of art, how Short&Sweet breaks down barriers to make contemporary dance more accessible to the general public, as well as the concept of artistic illiteracy and how it should never deter someone from experiencing a new art form – we all need to start somewhere! Let this interview be your intro to Short&Sweet’s intro to contemporary dance! Following the chat will be some of the music that you can hear live at Kazoo! Fest including…

Bernice – Dreamtime
Un Blonde – Who I Am
Gregory Pepper & His Problems – Nothing Songs
John Southworth – Fiddler Crossed the Border
Richard Laviolette – Old Country Music
