The Autumn Stones says

Vibrant horn and hook-laden jangle guitar play counterpoint to the smooth, melancholic vocals and cerebral lyrics of indie-pop quintet The Autumn Stones: Ciaran Megahey — voice, guitar // Marcus Tamm — bass // Raymond Cara — drums // Dan Dervaitis — guitar // Gary Butler — saxophones.

Co-produced by Dean Marino (Papermaps) and mastered by Noah Mintz (The National, Broken Social Scene), sophomore album ESCAPISTS was described by PopMatters as "blistering, jaunty, wistful, a deftly classic pop touch throughout" and The Quietus as "like The Smiths covering Roxy Music, or vice versa." CBC Music listed ESCAPISTS in 5 ALBUMS YOU MUST HEAR // 2015, saying "it channels 1980s British post-punk while adding unique sensibilities to the mix."

The band has supported The Cribs, DMA's, Golden Suits and The Howling Hex, and shared bills with Brendan Canning, Jim Cuddy and Flowers Of Hell.


B-17 >> 10:40PM

B-17 formed in 2011 in Toronto, featuring members of past local psychedelic bands (The Hoa Hoa's/Action Makes/Easy Targets). B-17 were born out of a love for heavy psych rock like Spacemen 3 and Hawkwind as well as classic American fuck up rock like MC5 and The Stooges.

Having shared stages with the likes of Red Kross, Crocodiles, Biblical and Simply Saucer, their shows are not to be missed.


NEW ROW >> 9.50PM

NEW ROW are about as Toronto as a band can get — like the city, they are made up of newcomers from as far afield as Thunder Bay, Chicago and London, England. They bring a heady blend of Brit-infused power-pop and spiky, sardonic lyrics lifted by layers of vocal harmonies. Check out their single The Day That Never Ends, a poison dart of a break up song, produced by Ross Hayes Citrullo.
