#KazooFest Day Three Preview – April 5th

 In Uncategorized

It’s hard to believe it’s already the third day of Kazoo! Fest 2013. On Friday we’ve got a lot of great stuff happening all over town. If you haven’t had a chance to check things out, Exclaim! have been covering the festival posting pics, videos and reviews of each day.

Starting off the weekend portion of Kazoo! Fest, we have a unique live drawing project from The Original Group Of $even entitled ‘Perpetual Motion Mousetrap‘. The project will feature a 30 ft live drawing by local artists Michael Byers, Marc Bell, Gregory Pepper, Gillian Wilson, Jay Stephens, Nick Craine and Ryan Cassidy. The drawing will be accompanied by live soundscapes from Ben Grossman and Reborn Endless. Stop by Silence and catch this unique cross collaborative project in a fun and relaxed environment.

Over at The Cornerstone we’ll be featuring an intimate performance from two incredible songwriters. Opening the night we have Neil Haverty, the lead singer of the mighty Bruce Peninsula. Joining him will be the beautiful and haunting songs of the legendary Jennifer Castle. This is a very rare performance of two stunning songwriters playing a rare intimate show. Space is very limited and this show will definitely sell out, so plan on showing up early.

Friday night also marks the launch of our pop-up venue at the Green Party Office at 34 Gordon Street (beside the ANAF). The venue is a beautiful open space that is a re-purposed auto garage which will be transformed into an audio visual spectacle during the weekend of the Kazoo! Fest. The venue will also showcase an immersive light installation by Live Action Fezz entitled ‘Toy Factory‘.

Opening up the show at the Green Party Office will be The While, who are “an ethereal, harmonic, percussive audio-video experiment” who will be performing off stage in the venue. Next up we have Scattered Clouds coming from Hull, QC, one of the most interesting and obscure bands at Kazoo! Fest that we’re really looking forward to. Following them we have Rituals from Toronto, who are celebrating the release of a new EP. After that we’ve got Guelph’s own Esther Grey who will be performing their unique brand of distorted lo-fi garage folk. Utterly unqiue, they are truly one of Guelph’s most interesting bands. At this show they are releasing an extremely limited cassette tape (only 6 copies!!) featuring demos from an upcoming album. Closing out Friday night we have Dusted, a 2 piece band featuring Brian Borcherdt (of Holy Fuck) and Leon Taheny (Final Fantasy, Rituals, Bruce Peninsula). We can’t say enough about Dusted, they are so incredible, so be sure to catch their set.

Also, be sure to check out our ongoing visual art exhibitions including L.Roe’s mixed media installation ‘pdsd‘ at Dis-A-Ray (3 Wyndham Street North). Whew! That’s all for now, check the schedule or grab a Kazoo! Fest pocket guide for all the details.
