WHOOP-Szo is a force of nature, sprung from a mixed-blooded experience of Canadian history with deep Anishinabek roots. Thunderous and ground-breaking, harmonious and generative—a WHOOP-Szo show envelops audiences in an emotional weather-storm that dances conscientiously between anger and discipline, frustration and hope. They tell us about colonial injustice loudly and punishingly, with haunting chord changes and monolithic distortion. They are passionate storytellers that knock loudly on the door, and reward you tenfold for inviting them in. Don’t miss them in Guelph for their album release, for Warrior Down, coming out November 1st.
