Night Owl Festival 2018 - Top Gun Picks!

The annual garage/psych extravaganza is back on in Toronto this coming weekend. The Night Owl Festival has brought in some amazing bands from all over the world such as King Khan & The Shrines, Night Beats, Michael Rault, Pearl Earl and the Allah-Las but also boasts some of the top local bands on the circuit. Here are the locals you won’t want to miss:

Brenda – A Deli favorite; Brenda brings a big fuzzy intensity along with a unique loud/quiet dynamic that makes you wanna bang your head and lock your doors simultaneously. Brenda will be playing Friday at The Horseshoe Tavern.

Peeling – A part of the Buzz Records team; Peeling blends pure noise rock with eerie grunge influences. Peeling plays Saturday at Lee’s Palace

Vypers – Heavy garage rock influenced by that California psych sound. These guys have really come into their own with the release of their latest EP “Champion 100”. “Mr.Girl” is a highlight where they add some nice melodies to their garage rock chaos. Vypers also play Saturday Night at Lee’s Palace

Luna Li – She is known as the garage rock princess of Toronto. Luna Li plays both guitar and violin which makes for a wild combo. She released a new single “Silver Into Rain” over the summer and will be playing the closing show for The Night Owl Festival on Sunday at the Rec Room.

All shows will also include tarot card readings, facepainting, colouring and so much more. Ticket and event information here. - Kris Gies





Frankie & Jimmy - New Sliding Delta Demento Blues Record "Blues on the Brain"

The Poor Man’s Blues Brothers from Hamilton are back with their latest LP of sliding delta demento blues titled "Blues on the Brain". Frankie shreds the slide guitar and percussion while Jimmy staight hollers into a microphone and/or harmonica. Their latest LP is filled with fuzzed out blues, gospel and country tunes. Not only do they crank out bad ass versions of traditional tracks but they always come equipped with some of their very own homemade “Burn Your Blues Away” hot sauce. A must-purchase when you see Frankie & Jimmy live. Which you can do at Doors Pub in Hamilton on October 20th along with The Jesse James Medicine Show and The Ginbombs. – Kris Gies

Jiants - "Odd Trouble", Playin' The Garrison 10.17

Fresh indie rock from Toronto; Jiants blends 90’s alt-rock with “modern indie sensibilities”. Their latest record “Odd Trouble” was released earlier this year. The title track leads off the album with a relaxed pace, in-the-pocket rhythm section and a vocal melody that could be a blend of Coldplay and Neil Young. It has some rural indie rock feels despite being straight from the city. Jiants will be opening for Restorations along with Wild Pink at the Garrison on October 17th. – Kris Gies

Hot Lips - "Piranha" Video Premiere!

Hot Lips are one of the most talked about bands around Toronto right now. They have an aggressive rock sound with some electronic influences not too far off from a Death From Above style. They are able to achieve this with their bass/drums/synth instrumentation. Their whole vibe has a dark sexiness to it which is apparent in this brand new video for their track “Piranha”. This live-off-the-floor video was recorded at Playdead Cult Studios and recorded/mixed by their longtime producer Josh G. Bowman. Alex Black (bass) and Keith Heppler (drums) lay down a thunderous rhythm while vocalist Karli Forget wails throughout the whole song and even grabs a bass of her own near the end for a slammin’ double bass attack. Hot Lips have a number of shows lined up across Ontario this fall including their single release party at Junction City Music Hall on October 13th. – Kris Gies
