Torontoist wants to make sure we don’t forget to send e-cards and presents to the lovely folks at Wavelength. The weekly indie music showcase is turning six and doing its best to top last year’s excellent birthday festivities. Concerts start tommorow night with an ear blistering lineup at the Speakeasy (120 Church St.) that includes Anagram and Republic of Safety. But before all that rockin’ out you can pick the brains of indie scenesters/stalwarts like Boat booker Trevor Coleman, eye editor Stuart Berman and more on a three part panel about the state of the indie scene in Toronto.
Friday, Wavelength lands at current it-spot the Boat with what Torontoist thinks should be a dance happy night with the Bicycles, and the amalgam of Lullabye Arkestra and No Dynamics (LAND). On Saturday, WL returns to the Music Gallery. It’s going to be tough to top last year’s Saturday night bill of Jon-Rae Fletcher and the River, Final Fantasy and Shawn Hewitt but with Ohbijou, Woodhands, Hylozoists and Picastro it doesn’t look too shabby and comparisons will probably be favourable.
If our livers and ears are still intact, and are feet can still shuffle we’ll be ending the weekend at Sneaky Dee’s with Ninja High School, Henri Faberge and the Adorables (no, our sports writer is not in the band), the Phonemes and more.
