Kazoo! in Hamilton, March 17th with Bocce / Interstllr / Defcon @ This Ain’t Hollywood
As we gear up for Kazoo! fest 2012 we’re co-presenting shows outside of Guelph. On St. Patricks Day, Saturday March 17th we are co-presenting our first show in Hamilton with our friends at This Ain’t Hollywood. The show will feature long time Kazoo! friends Bocce and Interstllr plus Defcon, a new project featuring Lee Reed and members of Warsaw Pack. We hope you can join us for a great show in the Hammer!
Waterloo, Ontario based electronic-rock band Bocce have a new album and live performance. The self-produced kraut-rock inspired album (entitled Future 1.0) takes a look into the future according to yesterday. Visions of flying cars, jet packs and silver jumpsuits that once brought hope and excitement are revisited through Bocce’s synthesizer based music. The live show is an audio/visual multimedia experience. Bocce is Tony Salomone, Nik Must, Mike Bond and Ben Ong. They have toured throughout Canada and played several music festivals including Pop Montreal, Hillside Inside, LOLA and Canadian Music Week. Future 1.0 is available as a free or “pay what you can” digital download.
Interstllr is one of Guelph’s newest and hottest projects. Combining the slick vocal style of Koko Bonaparte and the beats of Mad Adam, this duo have begun a new chapter in Guelph’s independent music scene. Together these two make infectious pop songs, with quick verse-to-chorus trade-offs and deliciously catchy beats. Born out of Guelph Plague Language hip hop scene, Mad Adam and Koko draw on their roots with Mad Adam as a beat producer (for Noah 23 and countless others), and Koko as an MC. With this brand new project they move beyond hip hop into their own brand of layered auto-tuned pop music. They amazed audiences at a house party in August and this will be their first club show, so get ready to dance.
