Idee Fixe at NXNE
NXNE is underway and IF artists are playing and we’re selling records.
First Bart play 159 Manning at 7:30 Friday. Real heads know the deal.
Later Friday night check our twitter for a surprise.
Saturday we’re at The Garrison for the NXNE label fair organized by the awesome Sonic Boom. We’re sticking around day and night because none other than Jennifer Castle is playing the 11pm slot.
Sunday we’re going to sleep all day and then head to the Wavelength curated showcase and hang with Bart who hit the stage at 11.
We’ll see you out there.
Pink City Polaris Prize long listed
We are very pleased to announce that Jennifer Castle’s Pink City has been nominated for the 2015 Polaris Prize long list. Released in September of 2014 to universal acclaim Pink City has taken Jennifer across North America and the EU. On her never ending Pink Cities tour Jennifer will perform at a number of festivals in Canada this summer including NXNE this Saturday. Other summer dates include shows with Steve Gunn and then without pause Jennifer will head out in support of Destroyer for dozens of dates right through the fall. A full list of dates to follow.
Bry Webb and The Providers
Live at Massey Hall / Summer Tour
We are delighted to formally announce the release of Bry Webb and The Providers Live at Massey Hall. Available now on itunes and pre-order here where you can read all about it.
What we can tell you here is the LP’s artwork was created by Halifax natives Yorodeo and is an example of their recent work using anaglyphic (red/cyan) 3D glasses. Yorodeo’s front and back cover artwork showcase the famous venue by bringing you on stage and in the audience with the first 3D photographs ever taken inside Massey. Conveniently, the packaging will include a set of 3D glasses to view the images. The record itself is a limited edition red vinyl pressing and orders will ship as soon as they arrive at the IF offices. You can preorder the vinyl and purchase the digital download of the album here.
