Wavelength 15 @ Sneaky Dee’s [February 13, 2015]

This past weekend I headed up to Toronto (No I haven’t become a Torontoian) for Wavelength Music Festival.
It was their 15 Anniversary and I was very curious to check it out.
This was actually my first time attending their showcases. (Does festival showcases count?)
WL 15 was three nights of Toronto acts performing at different venues and to show what Toronto had to offer in this big music community they have.

The first night of the festival took place at Sneaky Dee’s.
You can say the theme of the night was the “past”.
Starting the show was “Classic Wavelength/Toronto Song Tribute Sets”.
The set featured:
The Skeletons Four playing Jim Guthrie.

Played some Toronto classic hip-hop which I wasn’t familiar with.

Wasn’t until the third song, where More or Les got members of Toronto’s Hip-Hop Karaoke with Thrust to sing “Northern Touch”. That was when everyone went crazy!!

Lockbox which is Laura Barrett new project playing Owen Pallett.

After that wonderful set was Art Bergmann.
Performed a really long set.
Due to that, I didn’t stay around to see Controller.Controller’s long awaited reunion set.
