The Meringues

At the core of this Kingston, Ontario based group, described by some music industry observers as the epitome of the post-Punk revival, are the dueling lead vocals of Amanda Pants and Ted Evans. They have a torrid, almost theatrically manic partnership, infused with a bubbling, broiling tension that gives each stage performance a delightful unpredictability and emotional intensity that entrances and enthralls audiences.

Hot Garbage, Strange Happenings and 1990Future

Hot Garbage, Toronto, ON

Psychadelic garage rock group Hot Garbage just released a brand new EP at the end of the last year called “Max Blonda”.

That along with the menacing keyboards and atmospheric vocals their tunes take you for a serious ride.

Strange Happenings, Kingston, ON

From the swamps of Wolfe Island arose a caravan travelling space and time, harnessing scribes among the now, through ancient tonal scriptures. 

1990Future, Toronto, ON

Toronto-based, four piece alternative rock band that delivers a tasty punch of dirty rock influenced by 1990’s alternative and 1970's rock and pop. There's a taste of Neil Young, The Clash, Weezer, David Bowie, Elton John, The Pixies, and Velvet Underground.

Georgia Straits, Kiss the Fish and Keegan Powell

Often described as "not bad", "pretty loud" and "I saw them once when I was really drunk", Georgia Straits have taken the Kingston music scene by storm since their first show in September of 2016. With their energetic (borderline aggressive) indie sound and manic stage act, a Georgia Straits show will at best blow you away, and at worst leave you mildly entertained by the guy rolling around yelling into the mic. Ian Winkler and Dan Gillis both play guitar and lead vocals, Logan Barr tickles the ivory keys, and Josh Rodley pounds the drums and provides sweet, sweet back-up vocals.

Brother Elsey with special guests Odd Fosters & Charlie Mauve

Bonded by the ties of blood and bone, Brother Elsey (from Detroit) unearths its heartfelt sound from the depths of the human spirit.

With brutal honesty, the trio delves into the nuances of the human experience by way of dusty southern rock and endearing Americana, exploring the tension that tears us apart while gripping tightly to the ropes that tie us together.

Vile Bodies / Meringues / Enrights

The Vile Bodies are a lo-fi rock and roll revival act with roots in Belleville’s Downtown. They released their debut album "Permanent Dive" on August 10, 2017 and have become known across Ontario for their energetic, often turbulent, live shows. 

The Meringues have a whole new meaning for stage presence. They're like a freight train that's about to de-rail; an abandoned building leaning on it's last lonesome support wall. Their live show is a catastrophe waiting to happen and you won't be able look away.

The Enrights are a new high energy Alt. band from Kingston/Ottawa. Think ‘Record in a Bag’ meets ‘Take Off Your Pants and Jacket’ meets ‘Michigan Left’.
