Asin Fest Music Showcase @ Arts Court Studio (2 Daly St.) SATURDAY AUGUST 11, 9:00pm – 1:00am Presented as a part of the 2018 Asinabka Film & Media Arts Festival. $10/Ticket (Includes admission for Sound/Tracks which takes place earlier at 7:30pm) Free w/ Festival Pass Tickets available at the Door or at any Asinabka Festival Event Catering by Pow Wow Cafe Cash Bar Yamantaka//Sonic Titan are a Noh-Wave prog collective, a black-and-white (and sometimes red) theatre company, an operatic psych cult, and the speculative prophets of humanity’s impending doom. Above it all, though, they’re a thunderous rock band, and on their third album, DIRT, they’re the heaviest they’ve ever been. Ethnotechnique is an Ottawa-based band featuring Brian Wallin and Ashelita Shellard. They are influenced by Coltrane and Nachos, they play music in the basement laundry room, and it is dope, iconic and legendary. Gentleman Soundgoods is a Toronto based Anishinaabe post-rock band, they combine slick riffs and melody, with a machine-gun drumbeat that will leave you breathless and pondering life’s mysteries. ⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️ Asinabka Festival takes place on the unsurendered and unceded territory of the Algonquin Nation. Chi-Miigwech to our Algonquin friends and hosts. Racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, and ableism are not welcome at our Festival.
