MUSIC by New Horizzzons | Midnight Static: DJs Gabe Knox & Diana McNally
A lot has changed since 1979 but not our commitment to artist-run culture and cutting-edge contemporary art. After 35 years in Toronto —5 locations, 160 board members, countless volunteers, over 2,000 artists exhibited— we want to celebrate going forward with you! Join us in a cloud of artificial fog as we consume cosmic refreshments and take in performances by the unhindered, freeky deeky band New Horizzzons and euphoric Italo-Disco DJ Duo Midnight Static. Dress to impress.
A big thank you to everyone who has supported us along the way!!!
MIDNIGHT STATIC | DJs Gabe Knox & Diana McNally | 8PM – 12AM
Legend has it that many eons ago, DJs Gabe Knox and Diana McNally explored the physics of sensual dancing in zero-gravity while soaring through the cosmos in disco coffins. From this journey, Midnight Static was born: a cult dance party of Italo-Disco and cosmic sound, where sci-fi, sex and cyborgs coalesced into an unparalleled experience of aural euphoria.
NEW HORIZZZONS | Performance at 10PM
Minimalist yet at the same time maximalist, Toronto’s three piece New Horizzzons spring forth from the ether like some contradictory phantom with a warning about how far modern rock has strayed from the path.
The trio of vocalist Robert Dayton (Canned Hamm, The Canadian Romantic), Craig Daniels (Leather Uppers, Tijuana Bibles) and Michael Comeau (LSDoubleDCup) banded together in early 2013 to generate tunes that at times can seem loose and jammy, yet at others tight, heavy and to the point. Sonically they implement the savagery of foamy-mouthed fuzz punk with primitive prog, junk-store glam and smoking banana peel psych-sploitation all delivered with analog delay and wah pedal panache. The poetic, sometimes autobiographic lyrics of Robert Dayton take the listener on a journey of self-help, with tales of moral tests and trials utilizing his own pop culture short-hand, all delivered with a vocal mastery and grandeur not unlike Richard Harris in his studio prime.
