A Guide to Wavelength Winter Festival 18

By Harry Myles, Featured Photo via Wavelength Music

Wavelength Music is a non-profit arts organization established in 2000. The group puts on curated concert series in the city to support the independent music and arts scenes, championing thousands of up-and-coming artists over the past 17 years, such as Arcade Fire, Feist, and Crystal Castles. Wavelength coordinates 20 events each year with two festivals: Camp Wavelength in August and Wavelength Winter in February. Jonathan Bunce, a.k.a Jonny Dovercourt, is the artistic director of the organization and an advisor to the Hart House Music Committee, the overseer of demo. With Jonny’s help, we’ve created a guide to this year’s Wavelength Winter Festival 18 (19+) happening from February 16-18 at The Garrison.

Brendan Canning (DJ set): Don’t miss out on this local indie-rock legend’s spectacular DJ set! As a founding member of Broken Social Scene, Brendan Canning is known across the city, and country for that matter, as a pioneer of the early-2000s Canadian indie wave. Although he’s not putting on a conventional performance, Canning’s DJ set is still a chance to hear the artist’s skill up close.

Odonis Odonis: Saturday night sees the return of Odonis Odonis to their home city. The trio debuted in 2011 with Hollandaze and recently released No Pop in October 2017. On their latest LP, the self-described post-apocalyptic experimental band turned to a more “dance-floor-friendly” sound, something The Garrison will witness on Saturday.

Other performers:

Freak Heat Waves

Tough Age
