KAZOO! FEST 2019: FRIDAY PREVIEW
Ready for the weekend? Here we go.
Up first at 4pm, we have a special set from Newfoundland darlings, Property. They’ll be sharing the bill with Guelph’s stalwart heroes, Shopkeeper, at Planet Bean (downtown). Just down the street at Guelph Music, we have an energetic punk show that kicks off at 5pm that features a couple of great Toronto bands, Protruders and Slutcode – this is not to be missed.
Now’s your chance to go eat – so go. EAT. And then meet us back at Kazoo! HQ (127 Woolwich Street) at 8pm for a very special co-presentation with Ed Video of a live AV performance from Tasman Richardson.
Over at Mitchell Hall (St. George’s Church), we have a jam packed bill. Seriously, you will not see a line-up like this anywhere else or ever again. With Kazoo! favs’ Obuxum taking the stage at 8:15pm, you’ll be well on your way to a great night. She’ll be followed by the feminist hip hop anthems of Brooklyn’s Miss Eaves, Vancouver-based Dene/Cree filmmaker and DJ, DJ Kookum, and, closing out the night, it’s Polaris Prize hip hop shortlisters, Snotty Nose Rez Kids. Tickets for that can be bought here — and, if you’re lucky, you might be able to grab some at the door if they’re all gone online.
Meanwhile, across the hall at St. George’s Church in Palmer Hall, we’re very excited to bring back Short&Sweet: Guelph Edition with our friends at Wants&Needs. This is always a festival highlight and starts at 8:30pm. Tickets for this one are here. They’re probably gone but, hey, give it a shot.
Maybe you want something more chill. If so, why not hit up 10C around 9pm to catch Montreal’s Thanya Iyer and her band? They’re great and are being co-presented by our friends at Guelph Jazz Festival. Who else is on that bill? Oh, just one of the finest songwriters today — John Southworth & The South Seas. NBD.
So much stuff, right? Well, we’re not done.
Over at eBar at 9:45pm, we have a banger planned. Kicking things off is the Girls Rock Camp Band, BLOOD MONKEYS. If that’s not enough to get you there, after that we have Toronto dream popsters, Luna Li, Newfoundlands’ Property and Guelph’s latest craze, Kitzl. The awesome folks at Holy Smokes are helping us pull this one off.
Still not full? Head over to the ANAF for 10pm where it will get loud with one of Guelph’s best bands, I Feel Sorry, Quebec no wave dance punks Victime and Toronto’s sweethearts, Rotten Column (AKA your new favourite band).
And just wait until you see what’s in store for Saturday!
