Silent Shout is back! After the sad closing of our former home at Teranga, we'll be putting on shows at different venues, starting with this doozy. For the first time, we are putting together a monster bill of four great bands that will turn the Garrison into a DANCE CAULDRON. We're very pleased that both bands that were supposed to play Silent Shout back in January will be joining us tonight. The line-up:
"Kidstreet's live show is infectious, energy-filled and not to be missed." - Eye Weekly
Kidstreet put on the most exciting high-energy indie electro-pop show you can imagine. Expect big beats, arpeggiated synths, and soft vocals that alternate between coos and killer rhythmic syllable runs. They’ve opened for Girl Talk, Health, Thunderheist, Shout Out Out Out Out and Au Revoir Simone. Kidstreet may still be under a lot of people’s radar, but they’re going to release their first album on Nettwerk this year so that’s going to change. Just have a listen to their single “X” below and you’ll get a taste of what’s in store. See them now before they blow up.
"It was so fantastic to find myself jumping up and down like a lunatic a quarter of the way into their set. Toronto crowds are notoriously unmovable but Foxfire worked very hard to get 'em moving." - Blog TO
Their set blew the audience away when they played Silent Shout last November, simply put, they're the best disco band in town. Do you need another reason? Over the years, they have opened for such luminaries as MGMT, Glass Candy and Yeasayer and Land of Talk and probably upstaged most of them.
"Shed no tears for The Ghost is Dancing; they've simply... evolved. They've added a whole bunch of new tricks as Powers, utilizing samples and more electronic kit to play a set that still inspires dancing—but with a less ramshackle quality." - Torontoist
Most people don't know Powers yet because they have yet to officially release any music, but they make noisy electronic pop that's really cutting edge and put on a killer live show. They may transmute you into small pieces of metal - bring magnets so that you can find yourself afterwards.
Opening the night will be Kashka, which is the electronic side project of Kat Burns from Forest City Lovers. Beautiful indie pop vocals backed by synths and drum machines. Be sure to arrive early to see her!
