ANALOG PRESERVATION NETWORK APN’s newest creation, APN Jumbotron, is a nod to arena rock, sports stadiums, and disco balls—on acid. Combining live video remixing with a multifaceted, moving projection surface, this sculptural installation presents a shifting and distorted vision of the action onstage. The Jumbotron also beams light outwards, its Mylar-lined edges engaging the space and the audience with distorted spectrums of light and colour. Art: Website / Facebook

NOT OF Not Of is a duo that plays noise rock. They are loud and noisy, though not necessarily that loud and noisy. Eventually, someone will say, "Hey, that's not noise rock." This critique will be largely inconsequential, and yet, it will weirdly cheapen us all. In the mean time, these two recorded a record of songs called Pique that should be out soon.

FAKE PALMS Composed of four seasoned Toronto music vets, Fake Palms put forward pummeling songs, laced with icy, stabbing guitar hooks and heavy rhythms. Michael le Riche's vocal melodies sit at the center of the dizzying arrangements, alternating between shouts and falsettos, paranoia and fevered bliss. Simone TB (Slim Twig, Tropics) keeps time behind the kit, Patrick Marshall (Burning Love) on bass, and Lane Halley (Hooded Fang) on guitar, squares out this post rock, garage loving psych band.
