Oh my god! Guys! Allie Hughes from Toronto has rebranded as synth-pop band ALX! Oh my god! It’s good! She is one of the best vocalists in the city, and will be debuting her project at The Drake on March 15th.
Listen to who her band consists of: Maddy Wilde from Moon King and Spiral Beach, Kelly McMichael from Rouge and Kieran Adams from Bonjay. Basically, it’s a Toronto synth-pop super group. We’re damn, damn excited for this one, especially after watching that creepy video.
You can download the single for free on ALX’s bandcamp.
Another excellent track from Bonjay. The Stumble/Creepin’ single is due in June.
This is the final installment of our Canadian Music (Week) Fest recommendation series. Thanks for reading!
The absolute best place to be tonight is El Mocambo for the YYZ Records Showcase. Sure, Silent Shout’s own Digits will be playing the event (9 pm), but good music is good music regardless of conflict of interest. How can you avoid a bill that includes Piper Davis (11 pm) MADRID (midnight), Kidstreet (1 am), and Humans (2 am)?
Your last stop tonight should be The Garrison to see OPOPO, the friendliest electro-rockers in Toronto. They take the stage at 3 am. Directly before them is a mysterious “Special Guest,” which usually means a big-name out-of-towner doing a surprise appearance. Don’t quote us on that, though.
There is a bunch more awesome stuff happening throughout the weekend, and we hope that you found our recommendations helpful.
