$10 advance, $12 door
From the Promoter
Feast In The East is a bi-monthly east end music, food, & art installation series.
This month features a free dinner by Georgia Webber.
Hull, Quebec weirdos pump out the angular no wave jams to celebrate their new 12" on Boiled Records. Demonic vocals beathe over tight rhythms, locked in guitar grooves and spaced out sax squeals. Pulling percussive tendancies out of some Warp meets 99 Record vortex, Fet.Nat bounces from abbrassive textures to beat driven gestations. Samples & electronics play with errant saxophone howls. Drawing influence from nyc no wave, the spastic tendancies of noise rock bands like Melt Banana, Old Time Relijun and contemporary electronic experimentalists, this mutant baby is a must see live experience! Don't miss their return to Feast In The East and the great city of Toronto!
ABSOLUTELY FREE (absolutelyfree.bandcamp.com)
Toronto kraut synth trio bubble back to the surface with cascading synth lines & flowing guitar textures that bound forward over focused rhythmic exercises. Summer storms of warm electronic notes wisp through the air, spectral flourishes add to the unfolding sonic layers that effortlessly create a welcoming cacophony. All these fleeting textures settle on top of a relentlessly hungry rhythm section. Vocals cut through the satin psych haze without seeming too over powering, dipping into the menagerie when the moment calls. Synth psych mavericks somehow channel a Beach Boys-esque vibe with a krautrock language. True OG Feasters, these guys ripped it at our 2nd Anniversary, bring the noise.
BADGE ÉPOQUE ENSEMBLE (badgeepoque.bandcamp.com)
Maximilian "Twig" Turnbull's newest venture sees him and a crew of Toronto heavy weights, including Alia O'Brien (Blood Ceremony), Jay Anderson (Biblical), Chris Bezant, Giosuè Rosati & Ed Squires, bring light to some 1970's influenced heavy mood music. This avant rock ensemble, dials in the dripping funk nods, feeling somewhere between a film score anti-vamp, a soul jazz vacation mix and a focused prog fantasy. Manicured yet unleashed guitar rampaging melts into silky notes paired with flute accents. O'Brien's flute work mingles amongst Twig's organ swells, guitar punctuation and the exacting languidity of Badge's rhythmic trifecta. As if they were deposited here by some time-warp, the ensemble's unflappable live performance speaks for itself. Don't sleep on this.
