Hard to believe it's already here, but it's already the FINAL DAY of Wavelength Music Festival 13! Yesterday was full of beauty, from the lovely afternoon performances by Laura Barrett and Andre Ethier and their engaging and amusing discussions with Carl Wilson, to the gorgeous evenings of sets by Bernice, Doom Squad, Sarah Neufeld (with guests Colin Stetson [!!!] and Geordie Gordon from The Magic), Evening Hymns and an eagerly-awaited set of oldies by local faves Do Make Say Think.
Today is our grand finale, and it's gonna be a PARTY. Garage punks The Soupcans will blow the doors off of Dundas West shop Grasshopper Records at 4pm, preceded by a primer on Canadian punk by author Sam Sutherland. Then later tonight, we head just a few doors down to our spiritual home, The Garrison, for a grab-bag of awesome: The mysterious new synth/drone band Cell Memory & Castle If kicks things off just after 9, followed by surf-rockers Legato Vipers joined on-stage by live burlesque troupe The Harlettes (hotness!), then it's the return of the notorious Henri Fabergé & the Adorables. The awesome continues late into the night with the triple headlining threat of Guelph yacht-rockers The Magic, reformed Toronto pop-rocking supergroup Cookie Duster (whose pedigree includes Broken Social Scene, Danko Jones and Change of Heart) and finally, one of the bands who opened WL13 back on Wednesday night at Sonic Boom, the feel-good-found backporch pop of Dusted. You may need to pack an extra liver tonight, and you can stoke your thirst with delicious TACOS in the Garrison Cantina! Though we may not have the Cantina Band from the first Star Wars playing, we will have DJs from the whole WL13 weekend - Jesse Locke, Silent Shout's ARP-2600 and tonight's guest DJ Strong-Like spinning hot jamz in the Front Room all night!
Tickets will be available at the door tonight, starting at 9:00pm.
