Picastro : In Store 4 Qxs Anniversary, September 16 says
Quixotic Sounds Toronto is already one year old! You are invited to celebrate this special moment with us and with our talented friends playing a serie of in store performances from Friday 16th until Sunday 18th of September. We are proud and excited to invite Picastro for our first night!

Picastro : Picastro began in Toronto in 1998 with Liz Hysen, Stephanie Vittas and Kurt Newman.

Since then, the band has continued in many forms with its current band members consisting of Liz Hysen, Nick Storring, Germaine Liu and Matthew Ramolo.

Picastro have received much praise for their broodingly beautiful, melancholic soundscapes, in which cello alternates in the lead with frontwoman Liz Hysen’s submerged, murmured vocals. Picastro’s string-laden dynamics share a kinship with the music of fellow Canadians Godspeed You! Black Emperor, as well as The Dirty Three and Rachels. The band has played shows with Godspeed, Mick Turner (of The Dirty Three), Smog, Elliot Smith, Cat Power, Herman Düne, Cerberus Shoal and Thee More Shallows.

Opening Act : Coral King https://gleanerrecords.bandcamp.com/releases
