Mercer Union Members’ Only Cocktail Hour
Every month, we invite new and existing Mercer Union members to our One Hour Cocktail Mixers. On Friday, March 21st, we’ve invited Toronto-based artist Digits to contribute a one-hour track made specifically for the occasion. Enjoy a drink on the house, good company, and good art: we’ll be socializing in the gallery with the group exhibition Push and Pull – this is your last chance to spend some time with this show before it closes on the 22nd!
These member cocktail hours are scheduled monthly as an opportunity to meet with other Mercer members and as thank you for your continued support.
Not a member? To have access to this and future monthly cocktail mixers, become an Associate Member for only $25 dollars at the door or in advance on our website under Join & Support.
Digits is Alt Altman, an electronic pop artist from Toronto, who first started gaining media attention when he was living in London and Berlin. The Death and Desire mixtape (2012) was an instant hit among critics in the UK, with Clash, This is Fake DIY, Dummy, and The Line of Best Fit all singing its praises. The acclaim culminated with a review in The Guardian calling it a “near-classic of mournful electronica, a synth-pop album to stand alongside the Human League’s Dare.” After opening slots in Europe with Junior Boys, Yacht, Dillon, and Toy, Alt moved back to Toronto, where he has since played Canadian dates with Cadence Weapon, Doldrums, Sean Nicholas Savage, and Basia Bulat. In 2013, Digits released official remixes for Sally Shapiro (premiered by Under the Radar) and Sean Nicholas Savage and released three music videos premiered by The Fader, Noisey, and Exclaim.
