Wavelength teams up with NXNE for the first time ever….!
Our 2012 North by Northeast showcase at our home-away-from-home The Garrison features performances by:
TEENANGER – 12:00am
Razor sharp teen-punk aficionados Teenanger have been sharpening their aural machete into a sound now somehow all their own in a city full of the stuff whilst still wearing their impeccable influences on their jean jackets.
SILKKEN LAUMANN – 11:00pm
The Toronto debut of a new project from members of The Acorn! Marrying their passions for global dance culture, experimental music, electro and pop, Silkken Laumann is the collective alter ego of two Ottawans with very big ideas.
WE R DYING 2 KILL U feat. PENNY RIMBAUD (CRASS) – 10:00pm
Anarchic collaboration between the Montreal avant-punk band and the poetry-meets-performance-art of Penny Rimbaud (pictured above) — a founding member of the legendary, influential U.K. anarcho-punk collective, CRASS. Yes, that is right, Penny Rimbaud himself will be performing at Wavelength & NXNE. So don’t miss it!
THIGHS – 9:00pm
New noise punk revival unit featuring members of Pants & Tie, Odonis Odonis and Danger Bay. Channeling the chaotic energy of The Jesus Lizard with the herky jerky & spazz elements of Arab On Radar, Thighs is far from a caustic mess, using bare bones punk structures, angular riffs and crunchy textures.
Wednesday June 13
