Odonis Odonis
Born out the same Toronto DIY scene that spawned Metz/Soupcans/HSY/Greys, Odonis Odonis cut their teeth at the now defunct Buzz Garage, where they built a solid foundation as a crushing live band. Onstage, Tzenos (vocals, guitar) is flanked by Denholm Whale (bass) and Jarod Gibson (drums). The live show is the point where their diverging influences and hypnotic visual aesthetic collide. 2011’s Hollandaze showcased the band’s ability to create something that was uniquely theirs out of a patchwork of influences as disparate as surf, industrial and old b-movie horror films. No one label fit, so “industrial surf-gaze” was coined. The group returned in 2013 with their Better EP, upping the intensity of their frantic post-punk by focusing in on their talent for tuneful abrasion.

Their follow up and Polaris Prize Nominated Album, Hard Boiled Soft Boiled finds Odonis Odonis pushing their sound into new territory, because much like the hypnotic spiral that came to be associated with the band’s debut record Hollandaze, Odonis Odonis do not follow a linear path.
Dalek - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
Hailed by critics as risk takers and pioneers for a new generation of hip-hop. Dälek have returned with their signature mind numbing, genre bending blend of beats, noise, and lyricism with MC dälek, DJ rEk on turntables, and Mike Manteca on samplers & effects.

Their incredible back catalogue consists of numerous ground breaking records: Gutter Tactics (2009), Abandoned Language (2007), Absence (2005), ...From Filthy Tongue Of Gods And Griots (2002) – all released on Ipecac Recordings, Negro Necro Nekros (1998) released on Gern Blandsten, and successful studio & live collaborations with Young Gods, Techno Animal, Faust, KID 606, Zu, and Velma.

Touring extensively for over a decade, Dälek have sonically abused the masses at some of the biggest Music Festivals: Eurockéennes, Dour, Roskilde, Asymmetry, Iceland Airwaves, Massive Attack's Meltdown Festival and ATP ... just to name a few, and have shared stages with influential artists such as KRS One, Tomahawk, The Melvins, TOOL, Grandmaster Flash, Jesu, Dillinger Escape Plan, Pharcyde, RJD2, DeLa Soul, Prince Paul, Lovage, ZU, Black Heart Procession, Gaslamp Killer, Earth, Flying Lotus, The Bug, Mastodon, and Fantomas.

Live, their shows are an intense event that often end in a shoved mic stand and sonically assaultive layers of sound. Always original, Dälek stuns crowds and will blow you away with their words and music. Witnessing Dälek live is like coming face to face with the bastard child of Public Enemy and My Bloody Valentine. An amalgamation of the heaviest noise that the Velvet Underground or Merzbow ever unleashed and the knowledge spit by the likes of Rakim, that leaves you in a trance and sends shivers down your spine from the haunting beats intertwined with ambient textures and noise-scapes, that are carried by a powerful raw flow from one of the most charismatic MC's of his, or any era.
