THE HOLY GASP (Toronto Beatnik Conga Jazz)
We are excited to have these cats back. A wonderful treat for the musically adventurous.
The Holy Gasp is a damn-the-man beatnik revival conga revolution, a boxcar and a jug of wine, a groove, daddy, and the farthest thing from a king sized bust. Often likened to punk rock versions of Tom Waits and Frank Zappa, The Holy Gasp make music for fans of theatrical, off-centred, darkly comical, genre-defying entertainment, and they try and make it all sound like a bunch of hopped up jazz junkies singing Surfin’ Bird with a bad case of the shits.

Riishi Von Rex (Ottawa Rock and roll, soul, blues, folk)
Riishi Von Rex is a gypsy-rock duo who like to tell tall tales, invoke rainstorms and break old curses. Featuring Riishi’s howling vocals and fierce guitar styling and Michel’s theatrical use of a drum-kit, RVR’s innovative approach to rock blends diverse world music styles into the folds of guitar driven, danceable songs. Audiences may disbelieve Riishi’s various unlikely stories about encounters with Slavic witches, being terrorized by the undead and generally being an impossibly difficult woman, but none can deny the ferocity which with they are delivered

Mover & the Shakers (Toronto Indie Pop)
Mover & The Shakers is the musical project of songwriter Josh Mover. Combining elements of dark indie pop with a dash of folk and a pinch of punk, their forthcoming EP debut "Into A Ghost" offers up a promising five song appetizer for hungry ears.
