If you’re coveting a secret fetish for adventure novels, now’s your chance to live one out. Grab your flashlight and your keen intuition and head to Extermination Music Night VII (half the fun is finding it!) While the plot of an adventure novel might lead you to that secret, special cave to call your own, this night of music, visual art, and performance will take you to an undisclosed location that may or may not be cavernous, but will certainly be cultured. The venues are quite remote and the instructions on how to get there kind of cryptic. Just think of it as a scavenger hunt, where the prize is an amazing show.
Tonight will be the seventh in a series of secret nights of music and revelry that take place outside the boundaries of the legal system in abandoned warehouses and under bridges. These locations are used (as opposed to those sanctioned for this type of event) as a way to make the experience more inclusive. It’s free, and open to any age group.
The roster of performers at this year’s DIY culture concert includes Lullabye Arkestra, The Walter Haul, LS Doubledcup, and Tropics. There will also be a series of “rooms” created by various local artists that will feature video installations, an absinthe bar, a record store, and live performance art. Browse the art while listening to the various bands as they play into the early morning. If you feel like you need to escape the scene, this is the place to do it.
Torontoist has been advised not to release any details other than this, so keep it on the DL as we don’t want the powers that be to get wind.
