Camp Wavelength 2016 Preview

One of my favourite festivals from last year is back again! Camp Wavelength is taking over Artscape Gibraltar Point on August 19-21, showcasing some amazing local and international talent in music, visual art and performance art.  Here are a few artists to check out.

Odonis Odonis

Toronto-based industrial band Odonis Odonis have taken over many venues across the city and Canada, with their hazy wall of sound and wailing guitars.  It will be interesting to see how singer Dean Tzenos, bassist Denholm Whale and drummer Jarod Gibson bring their newest album Post Plague to life on the stage at Camp Wavelength.  Their set is on Saturday at 8:00 pm.

 

Operators

A post-punk band from Los Angeles, Operators is the new band from Wolf Parade’s Dan Boeckner, along side multi-instrumentalist Devojka and Divine Fits drummer Sam Brown.  Thier debut album Blue Wave was released earlier this year, and you can check out my review. Operators will definitely have everyone up and dancing on Firday night, when they go on at 9:00 pm

 

Moss Lime

This surf rock trio from Montreal has released two EPs and are growing in popularity across Canada.  These women have a jangle to their sound, creating a fresh, uplifting bounce to their music.  They will be performing on Saturday at 7:00 pm.

 

Bruce Peninsula

Bruce-Peninsula

A large collective of singers from around Toronto, Bruce Peninsula can not easily be put into a certain genre of music, with songs ranging from gospel, to folk, to blues and rock.  The powerhouse vocals from everyone in the band will blow the audience away on Sunday at 6:00 pm.
