This weekend is the Smirnoff Beats, Breaks & Culture festival!
For those of you who don’t know It’s one of Canada’s most influential electronic music festivals. “BBC (Beats, Breaks, Culture) pursues, dissects celebrates and showcases the best national and international electronic music and culture.”
And guess who’s gonna be there?! HOLY F**K!!!!That’s the name of the band by the way… loves it! Anyway Toronto’s very own “super evil” group will be performing at Habourfront this weekend, and I’m so excited!!First song I ever heard was Lovely Allen, and I was immediately hooked!
This awesome group consists of Graham Walsh, Brian Borcherdt, Matt McQuaid and Matt Schulz. This band uses live instrumentation and miscellaneous instruments and non-instruments i.e a 35mm film synchronizer, toy keyboards and toy phaser guns) to create, “electronic-sounding effects without the use of laptops or programmed tracks.” It is said that the band was formed with the purpose of creating the equivalent of modern electronic music without actually using the techniques. You can’t tell me you don’t think these guys are wicked!!
Did you know that they wrote the songs from their album, LP, without rehearsing! Best part? They did this while they were live on tour! After every show they’d return from tour, check into a studio and capture the energy of the live show, recording the shows that had now taken shape. Now that’s talent!
Anyway the show starts at 9:30pm this Friday (July 10th) so if you have nothing to do this weekend, then definitely head down to Harbourfront. Even if you have plans this weekend, squeeze at least 20 minutes of the show into your “busy” schedule! lol
See you there!!
